#Whales & #dolphins are facing many manmade existential threats: depletion of food by overfishing, drop in birthrates due to industrial pollution, killing by discarded fishnets & plastics etc
#Watch #Seaspiracy. It’s #seas #piracy. It’s #conspirasea
Over 300,000 #whales and #dolphins are killed as bycatch in #fishnets every year. People eating #seafood is the reason that fishing trawlers go to sea & cause these deaths of whales & dolphins. #Boycott #seafood. It’s #seas #piracy

Every year at least 50 million #sharks are killed as #bycatch in commercial #fishing. 90% of sharks have been lost in the last few decades. Eating seafood contributes to the bykill of sharks and other #sealife.

در لحظات حساسی از بازار هستیم که #تحلیل_تکنیکال در تشخیص روند بازار نیاز به چشم دوم دارد. اما از دریچه بررسی رفتار شبکه #onchain، به دنبال پاسخی برای سوال #کجای_چرخه_هستیم، بر مبنای #نظر_شخصی خواهیم گشت.
۱- ابتدا نمودار #CoinYearsDestroyed را مرور کنیم. این نمودار تخمینی است از حجم فروش کوین‌های پیرتر (در مالکیت 🐳و⛏) در ۳۶۵ روز اخیر است. به صورت واضح، روند نزولی 🟢 نشان از #Accumulation یا کاهش فروش بزرگان بازار و روند صعودی 🔴 نشان از سرعت‌ بالای فروش کوین‌های پیر است. Image
۴- با قیاس چرخه حال با چرخه پیشین، واضح است که با سقف فروش دوره قبل فاصله قابل توجهی داریم. این سقف همیشه در هر چرخه جدید پشت سر گذاشته شده است. دلیل آن پیرتر شدن طبیعی شبکه/کوین‌ها با گذر‌زمان است.

Previously Unknown #Whale Population Discovered in #Indian Ocean Thanks to Their Distinct Song…

(📸:Robert Baldwin/Environment Society of Oman)
In a rather surprising, yet exciting discovery, researchers have spotted a new population of blue #whales swimming in the western #IndianOcean. The discovery is unique as the population was spotted from the unusual song sung by these exotic sea creatures.
Blue whales or #Balaenoptera musculus are the largest living animals on the planet and they use songs to communicate and socialise. They are often identified by their unique low-frequency sounds, which can be louder than a jet engine, with the pitch reaching up to 188 decibels.

Hundreds of Pilot #Whales Die Due to Stranding in #Australia; Few More to be Euthanised…

(📸: NOAA)
In an unprecedented and unfortunate incident, nearly 400 long-finned pilot whales have died due to stranding in Australia’s #Tasmania west coast. On record, it is regarded to be one of the biggest strandings of whales in #Australia.
During the first count, about 270 whales were reported, but the later helicopter survey spotted another 200 whales on Monday. As per the government reports, 88 whales have been rescued so far and another 20 are likely to be guided back again into the water.

In addition, the presence of #whales also promotes the growth of phytoplankton, microscopic marine creatures that contribute at least 50% of oxygen to our atmosphere by capturing about 40% of all CO2 produced: equivalent to 4 Amazon forests’ worth.
It is these facts that make #whales one of Nature’s most efficient carbon sequestration ‘technologies’, says the @IMFNews study, which estimates the collective value of the world’s great whales as “easily over $1 trillion”.
@IMFNews The numbers of #whales have plummeted in recent decades due to relentless whaling. The study says that if whales were allowed to return to their pre-whaling population of 4-5 million from 1.3 million today, it could do wonders for the environment.
