Links Discussed in this episode:

  • Hakai Magazine tells us: Sharks, as a group, are among the most threatened animals on the planet, and for many species, overfishing is the driving force pushing them toward extinction. But the growing popularity of swim-with-sharks tourism has conservation advocates proclaiming that sharks are worth more alive than dead.
  • (Translated from French) Joane Bérubé writes: A blue whale carcass was also seen drifting along the tip of the Gaspé peninsula between L’Anse-au-Griffon and Belle-Anse, near Percé, over the weekend. While winter observations of blue whales are not uncommon, humpback whales, which benefit from winter to migrate to the south, are much more exceptional.
  • The ship of Greenpeace Mu Esperanza docked today at the port of Praia in Cape Verde. For eleven weeks, My Esperanza will lead an expedition in the waters of six West African states – Cape Verde, Mauritania, Guinea Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone and Senegal – Raising awareness on the current state of fisheries, through political meetings, mobilization of communities and consultations with scientists from these states. This tour entitled “Tour of Hope” will be an opportunity for these countries to make their voices heard around the world on the protection of their marine resources.
