Many birds that we know and love will become severely threatened by climate change. Like this Hooded Warbler. Photo taken at Garret Mountain Photo Credit: Natalie Gregorio By Don Torino I am more than a little embarrassed to admit that…
Raven Ahmed, who grows and sells native NJ plants, tends her plants in the front “yard” of her Egg Harbor home June 26, 2014. She is an area where she has replaced the grass lawn with native plants.
Early on June 20, Rich Lattanzi steered his boat, On the Hunt, to one of his favorite fishing spots to see if he could tempt a thresher shark onto his hook. He was about a mile and a half off Long Beach Island, with swimmers visible on the beach, when he got a tug on his line.
While having a slow day of bird watching with a friend in Sussex County, our attention turned to a large gelatinous brownish-gray mass about the size of a softball clinging to a submerged log in a freshwater pond.
College students stood on a floating dock in the Hackensack River recently and used long-handled nets to scoop shrimp out of the murky water. The shrimp were not for grilling.
These were small Grass shrimp, an inch or two long, native to the Hackensack. The students want to see how many live in the water here, and whether the river has been invaded by several non-native species of shrimp that have started to appear in coastal waters from Boston to the Chesapeake.
SOUTH BRUNSWICK – A bear weighing about 500 pounds was on the loose this morning in Middlesex County, according to police.
Don and Merryl Richards were fishing for summer flounder off Deal Monday morning when they were visited by a large sea creature.
“It was an absolutely magnificent, beautiful day. Then, all of the sudden, we heard this spout sound and we turn around and there was a whale,” said Merryl Richards, 61, of Livingston. “We just stopped fishing and enjoyed the show.”
When a shark emerged from the water with an open mouth and triangular 2-inch teeth, fisherman Steve Clark knew he was having a close encounter with a great white. The chance meeting, he says, happened about 5 p.m. Saturday at 28-Mile Wreck, the site of a World War II shipwreck off of Cape May, New Jersey.
“We were worried that it was going to harm the engine. It started to mouth it, but it wasn’t actually biting down,” said Clark. “I think it was just feeling it. It was just cool because she stayed around the boat for so long and really let us look at her.”
NASA – Since the earliest days of America’s space program, telemetry has been used to track rockets and spacecraft.
Similar technology now is being put to work by marine biologists to aid in studying activities of over a dozen managed fish and sea turtle species in the waters surrounding NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida.
