Gillnet fishing halted off California to protect endangered turtles

By Steve Gorman LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Fresh-caught swordfish will be off the menu in California restaurants for at least the next month, due to a federally imposed temporary ban on drift gillnets in the Pacific to protect endangered sea turtles starting on Friday. The closure, to remain in effect through Aug. 31, covers 25,000 square miles (62,160 square km) of ocean waters off Southern California that constitute the prime West Coast fishing grounds for swordfish and thresher sharks caught with gillnets. The new gillnet ban marks the first time such a restriction has been imposed off California by the National Marine Fisheries Service as a safeguard for loggerhead turtles, an endangered species that normally feeds in more southern waters off Mexico's Baja Peninsula. The agency's 2003 loggerhead conservation plan calls for closing the waters off San Diego and Los Angeles to gillnet fishing in years when the ocean-warming pattern known as El Nino occurs or is forecast, said Ben Enticknap, a senior scientist with the environmental group Oceana.

Dogs get especially jealous of other dogs: study

Dogs get especially jealous of other dogs: study One of the objects was a toy dog that barked and wagged its tail when a button on it was pushed. Certain dog behaviors were much more common when owners played with the toy dog versus the other objects, the researchers found. For instance, dogs more often snapped, pushed their owners, pushed against the object and tried to get in between the owner and the toy dog than they did with the other toys. The dogs were about twice as likely to push their owner (78 percent of dogs did this) when he or she was playing with the toy dog than when the interaction involved the jack-o-lantern (42 percent).

Changing shipping routes could save blue whales

A blue whale exhales through its blowhole in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Long Beach, California on July 16, 2008 Blue whales off the US west coast like to feed in areas that are heavily used as shipping lanes, a practice that puts their survival at risk, researchers said Wednesday. This habit could be the reason why their population is not rebounding as experts had hoped, and researchers suggested that changing shipping routes could help. For the study, led by Oregon State University and the University of California, Santa Cruz, researchers tagged 171 blue whales off the coast of California from 1993 to 2008. The overall population of blue whales in the area from California, Oregon and Washington in the Northern Pacific Ocean is estimated at between 500 and 2000.

That's My Owner! Dogs Get Jealous, Too

That's My Owner! Dogs Get Jealous, Too The first experimental test of jealousy in dogs shows that canines nip even at stuffed pooches when these fakes take away the attention of the dogs' owners. The results also show that jealousy does not require especially complex minds, the scientists said. "Jealousy is the third-leading cause of non-accidental homicide across cultures," said lead study author Christine Harris, an emotion researcher at the University of California, San Diego. It is commonly assumed that jealousy is unique to humans, in part because of the complexity of thought the emotion entails, such as gauging what threat a rival poses to a relationship.

Blue Whales Roam Dangerously Close to Shipping Lanes

Blue Whales Roam Dangerously Close to Shipping Lanes The feeding grounds of blue whales along the U.S. West Coast overlap dangerously with shipping lanes, placing the behemoths in danger of collisions with ships, researchers say. Blue whales, along with many other whales, became endangered due to commercial whaling. For instance, in 2008, five dead blue whales were discovered in the Pacific Ocean in a seven-week period, and three of them were confirmed to have been hit by ships. "That made everyone step back and say, 'Whoa, this may potentially be a big problem,'" said lead study author Ladd Irvine, a marine mammal ecologist at Oregon State University.


This free mod makes Watch Dogs look more gorgeous than ever before

This free mod makes Watch Dogs look more gorgeous than ever before Watch Dogs is one of the best games of the year and a decent showcase title for the new generation consoles, but it still doesn’t stand up to the seemingly professionally doctored demo from E3 2012. What we saw two years ago was a game that looked more stunning than just about anything else on the market — the reality wasn’t quite as impressive. Now, just two months after the game’s release, PC modder Federico Rojas (aka TheWorst) has released the final version of his graphics mod for Watch Dogs on the PC, bringing the retail release up to speed with the pipe dream from the original demo. “This is going to be the last version,” Rojas wrote in the 1.0 release

Elephants Can Outsniff Rats and Dogs

Elephants Can Outsniff Rats and Dogs Elephants are known for their impressively long trunks, but perhaps less well known is the large number of genes that code for their sense smell. "Rats had the record for the largest number of [these] genes," said the study's lead researcher Yoshiihito Niimura, a researcher of molecular evolution at The University of Tokyo in Japan. The findings support other research on the pachyderm's superior sense of smell. African elephants can smell the difference between two tribes living in Kenya: the Maasai, whose young men prove their virility by spearing elephants, and the Kamba, farmers who usually leave elephants alone, reported a 2007 study published in the journal Current Biology.


Elephants possess 'superior' sense of smell

An African elephant eats in the Kruger Game Park, South Africa on December 10, 2009 Elephants possess a sense of smell that is likely the strongest ever identified in a single species, according to a study by Japanese scientists out Tuesday. The African elephant's genome contains the largest number of olfactory receptor (OR) genes -- nearly 2,000 -- said the study in the journal Genome Research. Olfactory receptors detect odors in the environment. "Apparently, an elephant's nose is not only long but also superior," said lead study author Yoshihito Niimura of the University of Tokyo.

The yearslong battle between farm organizations and animal rights activists over laws prohibiting secretly filmed documentation of animal abuse is moving to federal courts as ag-gag laws in Utah and Idaho face constitutional challenges. Opponents of the law point to the Chino video and the investigation that followed, which led to the largest meat recall in U.S. history, saying the secrecy puts consumers at higher risk of food safety problems and animals at higher risk of abuse. (AP Photo/Humane Society of the United States, File) DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The years-long fight between farm organizations and animal rights activists over laws prohibiting secretly filmed documentation of animal abuse is moving from state legislatures to federal courts as laws in Utah and Idaho face constitutional challenges.


Bald eagles found on California island for first time in 50 years

A bald eagle takes off as U.S. marathon runner Keflezighi trains for the London 2012 Olympics in Mammoth Lakes, California A pair of nesting bald eagles have been found on San Clemente Island off the Southern California coast for the first time in more than 50 years, the National Park Service said on Thursday, marking the latest step in their comeback from near extinction. The discovery means that bald eagles, which vanished from the Channel Islands in the early 1960s due to DDT poisoning and once were listed as an endangered species, have now returned to five of the eight islands in the chain. "This news is very gratifying," Peter Sharpe of the nonprofit Institute for Wildlife Studies said in a statement released by the park service. "I expect to see bald eagles return to all eight of the Channel Islands within a few years, which will mark yet another milestone in their successful recovery." No chicks have yet been seen in the San Clemente Island nest, which was established by two birds that came from two other islands in the chain, the park service said.

Zoo Elephants' Big Threat: Too Much Junk in the Trunk

A female African Elephant, eats at the Milwaukee County Zoo African elephants in captivity are packing on the pounds, and experts warn that the rise in obesity is contributing to infertility, which could be detrimental to the survival of the species in zoos. To get a handle on the problem, one group of researchers in Alabama is looking for a better way to measure body fat on the already huge animals. Just like humans, elephants with excess fat are more likely to develop heart disease, arthritis and infertility, Daniella Chusyd, a graduate student at the University of Alabama at Birmingham, said in a statement. Previous studies have shown an alarming number of African elephants in zoos have irregular or no ovarian cycles.  [Elephants Images: The Biggest Land Animal]


Dams Imperil Pakistan's Endangered River Dolphins

The Indus River dolphin's habitat is shrinking because of irrigation dams that divide up the river into sections, new research suggests. "It is river habitat fragmentation by dams, and removal of river water for irrigation, that has caused the massive range decline of the Indus River freshwater dolphin," Gill Braulik, a cetacean specialist at the Wildlife Conservation Society in Tanzania and lead author of the new study, said in a statement. Around the world, there are several species of river dolphins, which evolved similar features independently, according to a 2012 paper in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. River dolphins have longer snouts than those of their ocean-dwelling counterparts, but they can't see as well as marine dolphins, probably because good eyesight wasn't needed in the dim, cloudy river water where they live, according to the World Wild Fund for Nature.

Smile, Hawaiian Wildlife: You're on Candid Camera

Smile, Hawaiian Wildlife: You're on Candid Camera This summer, Hawaii’s endangered wildlife will be on candid camera, as two kinds of drones survey the numbers and whereabouts of animals in their natural habitats. The drones, funded largely by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), will also survey plants, monitor remote waters, find garbage for removal, and record and photograph fragile ecological features in the Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument. This area encompasses nearly 140,000 square miles (363,000 square kilometers) of the Pacific Ocean, including parts of the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. In June, scientists deployed a small drone named Puma from the deck of a NOAA research ship, dubbed Hi'ialakai, to take videos and still and infrared pictures of green sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals and seabirds.
