Links Discussed in this episode:

  • Hell’s Bay, a male mako shark, has shattered records by traveling the equivalent of halfway around the globe over the course of 600 days. CBS News brings us the story. 
  • The Atlantic reports: Scientists have assumed that green turtles lay an average of 3.5 clutches each, and counting these clutches helps scientists estimate the global turtle population. But after tagging green turtles in the Indian Ocean, Nicole Esteban from Swansea University has shown that each female lays around twice that number. And if that holds true across other nesting beaches, it means that we might have overestimated the population of this endangered and declining animal by a factor of two.
  • Dr Pim Bongaerts, a Research Fellow at The University of Queensland’s Global Change Institute (GCI) and ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, and lead author of the study, said deep reefs share coral species with the shallow reef, which has led to the idea that deep reefs could be an important source of larvae and help to ‘reseed’ shallow reefs.
