Orcas & great whites

So for a reason unknown to scientist, at least three great white corpses have washed up on the shores of South Africa recently, all with their livers removed and with Orcas believed to be the culprits. This according to the article entitled “Are Orcas Killing Great White Sharks for Their Livers? Experts Stunned” by Pete Thomas over at GrindTV. Stay tuned to find out more about this mystery of the seas.

Elephant road trip

Okay, this migration has a little more uncertain path. It’s the migration of Elephants out of Africa. While the exact route is still unclear, this article at least helps us begin to map out their road.

The article is entitled “The Mammoth March: Paleontologist Are on the Fossil Trail of How Elephants Walked out of Africa  by Brian Switek at Scientific American. At this point, there are still a lot of unknown variables.

Balloons

As a kid, I’m sure I enjoyed balloons as much as anyone but after I read the book Voyage of the Turtle by Carl Safina as both an adult and parent, I think I realized how harmful they are to nature. So seeing this article, entitled “Why Balloon Releases Need to Stop” by Katherine Martinko over at Treehugger only reinforced that thinking.
