LAWS107: International Law of the Sea // Dr Douglas Guilfoyle
 
12:22
The oceans are critical to States' interests and human prosperity, being a highway for commerce, a shared resource and a vector for threats to security. They cover 70% of the earth’s surface, are the highway for 90% of the world’s international trade and provide 40% of the protein consumed in the developing world. In this context, the law of the sea is assuming a new prominence in international affairs, from questions of environmental protection and offshore resource exploitation, to legal contests over disputed islands, polar resources and global-warming opened sea lanes, and even regarding the risk of maritime terrorism and smuggling weapons of mass destruction.

Protecting the Marine Environment
 
02:37
Transcript NARRATOR: For nearly 200 years the US Coast Guard has been tasked with preserving our country's marine resources. That means tending to the oceans by protecting it from the castoffs of our human lives. The Guardians of our shores and Stewards of the Ocean ... with an ever-expanding role. The Coast Guard's work with protected species began in the late 1700's, when the agency ensured at-sea enforcement of laws governing the whaling and sealing industry. Over time, however, hunting, fishing, and whaling took their toll on the animal populations. To address this legacy, the Coast Guard took on new roles and adopted two strategic plans Ocean Steward and Ocean Guardian. Together these plans are the Coast Guard's framework for protecting vulnerable marine species and their habitats. You've probably seen pictures like these cold stunned turtles or lost manatees being loaded onto Coast Guard planes for a quick trip home to their natural habitats. During marine entanglements, the Coast Guard serves as the Nation's first responder, locating animals in jeopardy and, at times, assisting marine biologists at scenes like this where whales are caught up in fishing lines. Entanglement is a major issue for whales and many other types of marine life, like sea turtles. Discarded fishing gear, including huge commercial nets, can end up being a deadly trap for marine life. Marine debris and trash not only degrades our beaches, but also affect Marine Protected Areas and coral reefs beneath the waves. In the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary, Coast Guard's Operation Kohola Guardian protects endangered humpback whales in a variety of ways. Coast Guard crews conduct weekly sanctuary patrols to ensure both boaters and marine life stay safe, not only watching out for the whales but alerting boaters to their presence, as well. In the blue whales around Hawaii, the warm waters of coastal Florida or the cold green seas of New England or wherever human activity threatens marine ecosystems or protected species the Coast Guard is always ready to serve as America's Ocean Guardian.

How to be an effective environmental ambassador | Stephen Lee | TEDxYouth@SJII
 
18:04
Coming from a background in Wildlife Science from McGill University in Canada, Stephen has found himself a long way from home on a small island in Malaysia. After working in the Philippines as a Green Fins assessor to help local dive center operators to minimize their environmental impact while scuba diving, Stephen decided to dedicate his life to marine conservation and environmental education. Working for Orca Scuba as Conservation Project Coordinator has presented different challenges and opportunities to teach people of different ages and backgrounds not only to appreciate the ocean and all it’s wonders but to protect it as well. Among his most passionate issues are conservation and protection of coral reefs, sharks and sea turtles and reducing plastic waste in the sea. After managing a Sea Turtle hatchery project, he moved on to work at Orca Scuba as a Divemaster trainee and was eventually hired as the head of conservation, being responsible for all things conservation.

WHALES AND NATIONS: ENVIRONMENTAL DIPLOMACY ON THE HIGH SEAS
 
03:20
Kurkpatrick Dorsey Before commercial whaling was outlawed in the 1980s, diplomats, scientists, bureaucrats, environmentalists, and sometimes even whalers themselves had attempted to create an international regulatory framework that would allow for a sustainable whaling industry. In Whales and Nations, Kurkpatrick Dorsey tells the story of the international negotiation, scientific research, and industrial development behind these efforts —and their ultimate failure. Whales and Nations begins in the early twentieth century, when new technology revived the fading whaling industry and made whale hunting possible on an unprecedented scale. By the 1920s, declining whale populations prompted efforts to develop "rational"—what today would be called sustainable—whaling practices. But even though almost everyone involved with commercial whaling knew that the industry was on an unsustainable path, Dorsey argues, powerful economic, political, and scientific forces made failure nearly inevitable. Based on a deep engagement with diplomatic history, Whales and Nations provides a unique perspective on the challenges facing international conservation projects. This history has profound implications for today's pressing questions of global environmental cooperation and sustainability. Kurkpatrick Dorsey is associate professor of history at the University of New Hampshire. "This important book is essential for understanding the formation of the first global environmental agreements. It is valuable both as an argument about the failures of sustainability and as an authoritative guide to the people and issues behind the rise of global environmental awareness in the twentieth century." --Jacob Darwin Hamblin, author of Arming Mother Nature "Whales and Nations offers a fresh and timely look at the intersection of the twentieth-century whaling industry, international diplomacy, and science and is an important contribution to a topic that loomed very large in the environmental movement at a critical point in its development. It's also a great read." --Helen M. Rozwadowski, University of Connecticut, Avery Point "The international politics of whaling underwent seismic shifts over the course of the twentieth century, reflecting complex changes in attitudes toward marine mammals and environmental protection worldwide. This important story has never been better told than in Kurkpatrick Dorsey's new book, which is likely to be the standard work on this subject for a long time to come." --William Cronon

China sets environmental protection targets for 2020, 2035
 
00:38
The Central Committee of the Communist Party of China has announced environmental protection targets for the coming years. By 2020, cities with poor air quality are being called on to cut the density of PM 2.5 particles by at least 18 percent from their average in 2015, and 70 percent of China's offshore water is expected to be of good quality. Environmental protection is to be given equal weight with the goal of achieving a moderately prosperous society by 2035.

Cutaway of sea filmed from back of boat 10. SOUNDBITE: (Italian) Paolo Benci, ARPAT technical assistant: "So.. the third spot where we plan to collect samples is in that part of the bay where the desalination plants are based, which pumps sea water to supply Giglio Island." 11. Various of water samples being collected 12. Wide of desalination plant for Giglio island 13. Various of desalination plant STORYLINE A local environmental agency tested the waters near the stricken Costa Concordia on Monday for possible contamination from the cruise liner which has been lying on its side in the sea off the coast of Tuscany since an accident earlier this month. ARPAT (Regional Agency for the Protection of the Tuscan Environment) has been given the task of checking the waters around the ship and also at the local desalination plant, which provides fresh water for Giglio island. Samples are being taken both at the front and the back of the shipwrecked island, to get a proper assessment of contamination levels. ARPAT is concerned at the moment with testing water at the surface of the sea, where for days traces of oily substances, fuel spills, and detergents from inside the boat have been found. "The meaning of collecting (water) on the surface is to sample those substances that may have spilled from the ship, such as hydrocarbons, and collect our samples to send it urgently to our labs," said ARPAT technical assistant, Paolo Benci. Water monitoring will continue every day, and samples will be sent to an ARPAT laboratory on the mainland. Meanwhile, Italian officials were clearing hurdles on Monday to begin pumping some half a (m) million gallons of fuel from the capsized ship that threaten an environmental catastrophe, as divers continued the search for 19 people known missing. Civil protection officials are weighing whether to halt the search so the pumping of the fuel could begin, as islanders grew increasingly concerned about the possibility that the double-bottomed tanks holding some 2,200 metric tons of heavy fuel could leak. The pristine sea around Giglio, where the ship with 4,200 people aboard rammed a reef and sliced open its hull on January 13 before turning over on its side, is a prized fishing area and part of a protected area for whales and dolphins. The national civil protection official in charge of the rescue effort met with technical experts on Monday morning to determine if operations to pump the fuel could begin alongside with the ongoing search, or if it would present dangers to the divers.

1. This bin collects garbage from the sea. Seabin has a pump that creates a flow of water. The garbage is caught in a bag, allowing water to flow out back to sea. 2. This machine crushes beer bottles into usable sand. 200 grams of powder form each bottle is recycled to preserve beaches. 3. SaltWater Brewery created edible packaging to save sea life. The six-pack rings are made of barley and wheat. Sea life can eat the rings safely. 4. AIR-INK can turn air pollution into ink. it collects carbon soot from a car's exhaust. Then it is processed into a high-quality black ink. 5. These edible water blobs are biodegradable. The capsule is made from a seaweed extract. A greener solution to creating waste-free packaging. 6. This "Ocean Cleanup" machine has a giant floating pipe to capture plastic. The pipe moves with the waves and has floating anchors. The plastic is a; gathered in the center for a boat to remove. 7. Avani's biodegradable bags are saving sea life and reducing ocean pollution. They are made from cassava root and natural starches. Making them harmless for animal consumption. 8. This machine recycles tires. They are turned into rubber crumb for artificial grass. 9. Aquaponics combines fish farming and hydroponics. As the fish eat and grow they produce waste. The wastewater is given to plants as a fertilizer. The plants absorb the nutrients in the water and they are returned to the fish tanks. A natural process to growing food. 10. HomeBiogas 2.0 turns food scraps into cooking gas. The gas flows from the system directly to the kitchen stove. It can be fed up to six liters of waste and digest almost anything. HomeBiogas can also create fertilizer that goes back into soil. Tech Insider tells you all you need to know about tech: gadgets, how-to's, gaming, science, digital culture, and more.

The film reveals surprising truths about very immediate and potent dangers to our health. It is a global conversation from Iceland to Indonesia between the film star Jeremy Irons and scientists, politicians and ordinary individuals whose health and livelihoods have been fundamentally affected by waste pollution. Visually and emotionally the film is both horrific and beautiful: an interplay of human interest and political wake-up call. But it ends on a message of hope: showing how the risks to our survival can easily be averted through sustainable approaches that provide far more employment than the current 'waste industry'.

Environmental Lawyers and the Protection of Sharks
 
12:47
This film illustrates how sharks are just as vital to the survival of the ocean as are the environmental lawyers who protect their waters. The Network of Environmental Prosecutors of Latin America does great work in this regard. They are responsible for putting illegal shark fishermen behind bars. Endangered Hammerhead sharks bring millions of dollars in tourism to Ecuador, Costa Rica, and many more, while protecting their future and their heritage is at stake due to illegal shark finning. Illegal fishermen risk the country's countless millions of tax dollars, yet a new day in environmental justice for sharks is on the horizon. Success stories are increasing in numbers, and sharks still stand a chance.

On Thin Ice: International Law and Environmental Protection in a Melting Arctic
 
01:20:30
Sixteenth Annual Herbert Rubin and Justice Rose Luttan Rubin International Law Symposium On Thin Ice: International Law and Environmental Protection in a Melting Arctic Friday, October 22, 2010 The United States is one of eight nations with territory above the Arctic Circle, a distinction that meant relatively little until the last decade. But melting sea ice has thrust these previously unnavigable and commercially inaccessible waters into a series of legal, political, and environmental disputes, which are expected to intensify in the years ahead. On October 22nd, NYU's Journal of International Law and Politics and Environmental Law Journal will host "On Thin Ice: International Law and Environmental Protection in a Melting Arctic." This multi-disciplinary conference included leading scientists, legal scholars, and practitioners in order to explore the current and projected impacts on the natural environment, the legal framework, the commercial interests, and how to ensure sustainable development. The Journal of International Law and Politics and the Environmental Law Journal will publish papers resulting from the conference. This is the keynote, delivered by Peter Taksøe-Jensen, the Danish ambassador to the United States.

Can conservation save our ocean? | The Economist
 
27:05
The ocean is facing its greatest ever challenge - overfishing, pollution and climate change are all threatening the health of a resource on which the whole world depends. Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.st/2G3TH9d The crew of this ship is on a mission to try and save one of the most endangered sea creatures on the planet. They’re in the middle of a marine protected area in Mexico - a conservation zone where certain types of fishing are banned. Local fishermen are poaching a species of fish that is so highly prized in China, they can make tens of thousands of dollars in just one night. With ocean life under threat from overfishing, pollution and climate change, could marine protected areas be the answer? Near the Mexican fishing town of San Felipe, on the The Upper Gulf of California... Conservation group, Sea Shepherd is working with the authorities to help enforce a Marine Protected Area - or MPA. A designated section of ocean to be conserved, managed and protected. Maintaining rich, diverse ecosystems is key for the health of the Ocean - and ultimately the survival of humanity. But ocean life is under threat. From plants to micro-organisms and animals, species are disappearing forever. Marine Biologist Patricia Gandolfo and the rest of the Sea Shepherd crew are here to stop poachers. Caught up in the nets of the criminal gangs and local fishermen is one particularly rare porpoise - the Vaquita. Worldwide there are thousands of sea species currently threatened with extinction. Losing just one species from the food chain can have a disastrous effect on an entire ecosystem. After it’s sold on, the Totoaba’s swim bladder can fetch up to $100,000 a kilo in China, where it’s prized for its medicinal properties. Critics disapprove of Sea Shepherds use of direct-action tactics in some of their campaigns, but in the Gulf of California, their presence is welcomed by the Mexican government. Globally, the fishing industry employs 260 million people, but many more subsistence fishermen depend on the ocean for their income. Local fisherman here claim protecting the ocean has limited how they can fish, destroying their way of life. Yet doing nothing may ultimately present more of a threat to their livelihoods. Currently Marine Protected Areas make up only 3.6% of the world’s ocean but a growing number of scientists are calling for 30% to be protected by 2030. Cabo Pulmo now has a thriving eco-tourism and diving industry. The environmental rewards provided by the MPA to the local community have been valued at millions of dollars a year - Far more than they ever made from fishing. The ocean is facing its greatest ever challenge - overfishing, pollution and climate change are all threatening the health of a resource on which the whole world depends. Marine protected areas can come in many forms. But if they are to be effective, they must align the need for conservation with the needs of those who depend on the ocean for survival. In order to avoid disaster–and to ensure a sustainable supply of fish for the future–far more of our ocean needs urgent protection.

Welcoming Remarks: Dr. Jeff Sharp, School of Environment and Natural Resources (Ohio State) Moderator: Lake Erie - Christopher J. Winslow, PhD ; Director of the Ohio Sea Grant College Program Panelists: Chesapeake Bay - Rich Batiuk; (retired) Associate Director for Science, Analysis and Implementation with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’ Chesapeake Bay Program Grand Lake Saint Marys - Theresa Dirksen, Agriculture Solutions Coordinator for Mercer County, Ohio Sandusky Bay - George Bullerjahn, PhD; Professor of Research Excellence at Bowling Green State University’s Department of Biological Sciences Columbus - Lorraine Winters Krzyzewski; Watershed Manager for the Columbus Division of Water, Watershed Management Section For the first time in our state’s history the open waters of western Lake Erie have been deemed impaired by the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency. In a region important to boaters, swimmers and anglers what does this designation mean? What factors are driving this impairment? What can we learn from other watersheds that have faced impairment designations and other challenges related to water pollution management? This exciting panel conversation taught us about the science-based approach used by two of our state’s leading universities to help the Ohio EPA assess whether the open waters of Lake Erie met federal and state water quality goals, as well as key lessons learned from water quality management in the Chesapeake Bay, Grand Lake St. Marys, and the City of Columbus. Efforts to monitor harmful blooms, keep drinking water safe, address public health concerns and engage stakeholders in the process to reduce and mitigate harmful algal blooms were addressed by the panel.

Restoring the Dry Creek Salt Field in South Australia
 
02:06
In South Australia, an area of important coastal habitat that has been cut off from the sea is being restored. Learn about this project that has reconnected a degraded intertidal wetland to the life sustaining waters of the sea for the first time in decades. The Dry Creek Salt Field located 30 minutes’ drive from Adelaide in South Australia has produced salt from the evaporation of seawater since the 1930s. Following the salt field’s closure, as a trial, a small pond was isolated from the rest of the salt field and reconnected to the sea via a tidal creek. The creek now delivers water flows to the degraded site and the process of restoration has begun. The results? So far, we’ve seen a rapid restoration of the water and soil quality. And for the first time in decades, vegetation, fish and invertebrates are beginning to reinhabit the pond. Restoring the wetland will also help better protect the coast and even provides a ‘blue-carbon’ opportunity. Find out more about how we’re bringing new life to our coastal environments at www.environment.sa.gov.au/coasts This initiative was funded by the South Australian Government with a significant contribution from the Australian Government through Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges’ Samphire Coast Icon Project. It could not have proceeded without the assistance and goodwill of the following partners: - University of Adelaide - Buckland Dry Creek Pty Ltd - Royal Park Salvage - Department for Energy and Mining - Natural Resources Adelaide Mt Lofty Ranges - Environment Protection Authority - Primary Industries and Regions SA
PERU: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION CREATES CONFLICT IN FISHING INDUSTRY
 
02:20
Spanish/Nat The struggle between economic development and environmental protection is creating conflict in Peru's fishing industry. Waste from the factories built to process local fish may be killing off the very catches they need to keep running. The birds and the people have a lot in common in this attractive Peruvian beach town. Both depend on the local fish for their well-being. Unfortunately - the fish aren't doing well. Contamination of the local waters is killing both fish and the birds that each them. Humans here have so far been spared drastic health effects because the fish they eat are processed and cooked first - but the local economy has taken somewhat ill. This is Pesca Peru, a local fish processing plant in Bahia de Paracas - and a major polluter. Today the Ecological Police are visiting to measure the pH level of the water around the plant. Unfortunately, these checks have done little to stem the rising pollution. This bay, The Bahia de Paracas, is a national reserve in Peru. Apart from being home to varieties of marine life, it is also one of Peru's most important tourist destinations. But the pollution may change all that. A number of local industries - mostly factories that produce canned fish, and that process flour and oil - find the bay a conveniently located receptacle for their runoff. Local fishermen say the effect is deadly. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) It is hurting the people of San Andres, it is hurting all of us fishermen. This is all because of the factories that empty their residues into the ocean. The chemicals reach the shores and kill all the fish. SUPER CAPTION:Edmundo Pantigoso, fisherman of Bahia de Paracas. This leaves less fish to catch - and for these merchants, less fish to sell. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) Because of the contamination, dead fish are being washed ashore, and there is no place we can find fish that is fit for human consumption. SUPER CAPTION: Alicia Corcuera, fish vendor. In a culture that looks to the water for its livelihood, continued contamination may have dire consequences for these locals. SOUNDBITE: (In Spanish) Us fisherman have a saying that goes, the big fish eat the little fish. We always looked to the sea to provide us with food. But now, these men have the power, they dump the chemicals into the sea, contaminating the fish and killing the shellfish. SUPER CAPTION: Romulo Contreras, fisherman. The scene looks peaceful enough. But if the tourists turn up their noses, the fisherman find no fish to catch, and the factories have no fish to process - then the contamination will have ruined the bay for everyone.
