Strictly speaking, the smallest animal in the world would be an amoeba. It's also not always so obvious what effects to look for. Microplastics are roughly the same size as ‘marine snow’ — the shower of organic material that falls from upper waters to the deep ocean and which many deep-sea creatures feed on.” Dr Michelle Taylor of Oxford University’s Department of Zoology, and lead author of the study, stated: “The main purpose of this research expedition was to collect microplastics from sediments in the deep ocean — and we found lots of them.

From the worst wildfire in the history of Washington State comes a heart wrenching tale of a bear cub surviving severe burns to her paws, muzzle, chest and ears. We've also added information on California's Underwater Parks. Since sunlight does not penetrate more than a few hundred feet into the ocean, most of the ocean is not capable of supporting rooted plants. There is a lot of misinformation about them (even among the locals).

They range from 1.4 meters (4.6 feet) to more than 5.5 meters (18 feet) long adult body. To grow, they must periodically shed their old shell and grow a new one. It feeds on algae and Thalassia in the lagoon primarily at night. This way, the probability is enhanced that at least one jet will hit its target. Hopefully the newly expanded marine reserve will help to stabilize their populations. This "Serengeti of the Sea" stretches along the central coast from San Francisco to Cambria and includes pristine beaches, jewel-like tide pools, lush kelp forests, steep canyons and an offshore seamount teeming with life—from tiny shrimp to giant blue whales.

Modern fishing gear, often undetectable by sight and extremely strong, is very efficient at catching the desired fish species—as well as anything else in its path. I have not seen dolphins on the North Shore...too rough. Admire their beauty and their grace as they swim and move through their scores of exciting behavioral maneuvers. Worse, nurdles naturally absorb and amass other deadly synthetic chemicals making them even more hazardous. Become a marine biologist or support your local marine biologist!

River otters (Lontra canadensis) range throughout the United States and Canada. You can check out live footage of the eagles and red-tailed hawks on Ustream. Because biomagnification concentrates mercury up the food chain, seabirds that eat more clams than fish will be exposed to lower concentrations of toxins and have a better chance of survival.
