Throwback Thursday: Endangered species in Iceland

Earlier this week, I read on an Icelandic news site about puffins (the iconic bird representing Icelandic wildlife) and common seals were critically endangered of being extinct soon, when men don’t manage to reverse this development.

Source of the decrease of population is different for those two species. While the puffins are endangered by the climatic changes around Iceland, despite they are protected by certain laws. But, the warming of the sea makes their food, a special kind of fish, vanish. So, the puffins don’t find enough to feed themselves and their breed.

The common seals, on the other hand, are not protected by any laws in Iceland. They are endangered by hunts and being caught as bycatch.Β This year’s counting flights yielded the lowest number of common seals ever.

You know, each species depends on other species and relies on other species. The whole planet depends on this balanced system. So, when only one tiny part gets out of balance, this will have a massive impact on other parts. Help getting nature back in balance! Otherwise, we humans will soon live on a planet without any other life (neither plants nor animals). No oxygen, no food and no fresh and unpolluted water. Our only companion might be the roach because of their ability to live even in environments hostile to life.

Take care!

  1. Strength evidence again, through relevant arguments developed in your post… that humans want to die! otherwise, many and many species were and are discovered throughout Nature, in deep Oceans… but! sounds we apparently don’t know that Mother Nature is Primary Intelligence, more than ever other “living beings are in the know” ! πŸ˜‰ so that, those species have evolved πŸ˜‰ and are certainly or probably not intended as “pantry” to human beings, ‘cos coming with “toxic genetic material” and no more dedicated to mankind. “MôÀÀ ze dis Bravo! ‘sont forts les humains”! πŸ˜› considering all that growing devastation within the last 60/70 years!
    Then they wonder why! …
    unless… and to ask; “was that the intent all along?” … Eternal cycles on its way…

  2. Ohh Man! yeahhh… πŸ˜‰
    What am I gonna do? (asked human being)
    Ride on, got myself a one-way ticket, … going the wrong way, … gonna change my evil ways,
    … one of these days, One of these days, yeaah one of these days …
    But! πŸ˜› someone replied:
    Stalemate, Ow ow ow Too late, Too late! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

  3. … and you know whaaat? πŸ˜› last evening, I watched a French TV documentary, which one coverage was about school Canteens in France, with regards to food provenance. Oh my! ‘just can’t believe it! Man,They have it all figured out! πŸ™‚ some fishes, pork, chicken coming from far far away, as from China! “MôÀÀ ze dis Bravo! β€˜sont forts les frencheese”!! No more Cook, school kitchen team leader… just ‘centralized kitchen’ almost everywhere in France… while Food is available direct from local areas, which meant to be Cheaper, Safe, Ecologic advantages in the long run, including Organic criteria available right away, fresh and Good taste like in the “good old days”…
    and to shout out: “Whaddya do for money…?” heing?? πŸ˜‰
    ship of Fools! ;-P

    1. πŸ™‚
      It seems, The Doors were prophets (or did you have Erasure in your mind)

      rising chickens in China for consumption of the best parts (legs and breasts) in Europe and freezings the remains in huge clusters to ship them to Africa for destroying the locale ranchers and poisoning the people by selling them half frozen chicken meat (giblets, bones, skin, wings) where they can’t guarantee a solid cooling chain. “Ship of fools” (The Doors, 1970)
