TryPeas: Endangered Species
Stand Up for Polar Bears
0 Comments

by Bianca Cimini Did you know that global warming is not only a concern to our well-being, but to polar bears? As climate change continues to heat up and melt sea ice, polar bears are running out of places to live. According to the National Wildlife Federation, “U.S. Geological Survey projects that two thirds of polar bears will disappear by 2050.” The warmer weather is a serious threat to our polar friends.  Once the ice melts, many polar bears are unable to swim long distances. Many do not make it, and those who do are finding it harder to hunt and find sustenance. With seals as their main food source, without any ice caps, there aren’t any seals around for the hunt. This is especially tough for mother bears who are looking to provide for their cubs (aside from themselves).  Due to this decline in habitat, polar bears were listed as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act in 2008. Unless we take immediate action to reduce the impact […]

Saving the Earth’s Largest Creature to Have Ever Lived

  by Bianca Cimini   The majestic blue whale is the world’s largest mammal, ranging in length from 24-33 meters and weighing up to 300,000 lbs. Bigger than any dinosaur to ever roam the Earth, their hearts alone are the size of a small car. They swim miles and miles a day, looking for their next meal. For being the largest animal in the world, they opt for one of the smallest meals – krill, a small crustacean. Blue whales tend to travel solo or in pairs, but are thought to form close bonds and attachments. They are the gentle giants of the deep. Today, they are rarely seen and spend the majority of their time in the depths, descending up to 500 meters at a time and spending sometimes 30 minutes underwater. However, it is truly their decline in numbers that play a large part in why these gentle beings are a rare sighting for seafarers. In 1970, they were placed on the endangered list by the Endangered Species […]

Elephants Worth More Alive Than Poached [study]
0 Comments

  by Sarah Howell In a new study conducted by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s iworry campaign, researchers found that elephants are worth 76 times more when they’re alive than dead. The shocking but perhaps unsurprising news follows the recent reports from the WWF that the world has lost 50 percent of its wildlife in the last 40 years alone. To determine the elephant’s worth, the study looked at the value of the animals to the local economies. They then compared that worth with the profits poachers received through the illegal ivory trade. The dates they looked at – January through August 2014 – was only a small sample, but during those few months, 17.8 metric tons of ivory from almost 2,000 poached elephants was seized worldwide. The seizures occurred in Kenya, China, Gabon, Vietnam, and other countries that have made little progress to reverse the devastation of elephant poaching. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s iworry campaign found that the value of a poached elephant was $21,000. They then looked […]
