Quotes

"The aim of the documentary is to restore protection to marine sanctuaries," the society's Charlotte Richardson said. "The NSW government placed an amnesty on the ban on fishing in sanctuaries in March 2013, opening up previously protected areas to recreational fishing."
...According to news reporting originating in Mersin, Turkey , by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A new species in Centaurea L (Asteraceae) from Turkey is described and illustrated. Centaurea aytugiana Bancheva, Kaya & Binzet grows in Karabiik Province , North Anatolia, Turkey , and its morphologically allied species are C stenolepis A Kern. and C salicifolia M Bieb. ex Wild."
"Our aim in holding them is to initially raise awareness on the plight of these interesting creatures."
"Penguins and humans often compete for the same food, and some of our other actions also impinge upon penguins. Our research highlights some of the issues of conservation and how we might protect biodiversity and the functioning of marine ecosystems."
