🇪🇸 En Poema del Mar, queremos que puedas conocer de cerca especies marinas jamás antes vistas y creemos que el mero jorobado es una de ellas🐠 Sus movimientos son lentos, ondulatorios, y su colorido tan especial le hace pasar desapercibido entre los paisajes acuáticos que frecuenta🌊 El mero jorobado se considera una especie “vulnerable” y entre sus amenazas se encuentra la pesca como factor negativo de sobre explotación, la degradación de su hábitat natural y que se trata de una especie inusual o rara⚠️ . 🇬🇧At Poema del Mar, we want you to get to know marine species, never seen before, and we believe that the humpback grouper is one of them🐠 Its movements are slow, undulatory and its special color allows it to go undetected among the aquatic landscapes that it frequents🌊 The humpback grouper is catalogued as a "Vulnerable" species, among its primary threats one should note fishing with regard to overexploitation, degradation of the natural areas of its habitat and also being a species that is relatively rare⚠️ . #poemadelmar#underwaterlife#acuario#aquarium#agua#water#nature#naturaleza
“In nature, nothing exists alone.”Rachel Carson, 1962. All living things have an intrinsic value, and each plays a unique role in the complex web of life. We must work together to protect endangered and threatened species: bees, coral reefs, elephants, turtles, insects, whales and more.
How many spots can you count on this whale shark? Did you know the whale sharks spot pattern is unique to each individual shark just like our finger print? @ecocean Whale Shark Photo-identification Library is the largest monitoring program of the species in the world. It uses photos of the skin patterning of individual whale sharks to monitor population numbers, track their movements and compare if the same shark has been seen in the area before. Cutting-edge software supports rapid identification using pattern recognition and photo management tools. The Library is maintained and used by marine biologists to collect and analyse whale shark encounter data to learn more about these amazing creatures. There are currently over 50,000 photos in the Library of whale sharks encountered at various locations around the world. It is available for people to access around the world, so any shark sighting can be reported into the Library as an encounter. We have actively set up partnerships for this citizen science program in Indonesia, Mexico, Mozambique, Seychelles, Maldives, Galapagos, Belize, Honduras and Philippines, with many other countries interested in being involved. @ecocean (Australia) works hand in hand with its partner group WildMe (USA) to promote uptake of Wildbook.
