Awareness Campaign Launched for Protection of Maine Species

Awareness Campaign Launched for Protection of Maine Species

In order to ensure protection of iconic Maine species from the risk of carbon pollution, a campaign has been introduced by conservation interests, tourism and lobstering.

A big group representing tourism, conservation, lobstering and education interests of Maine met so that they could launch the awareness campaign. The same is aimed at increasing people's know-how about the risk being faced by lobsters from carbon pollution.

The pollution has been bringing a change in the whole climate, the report said. Ocean waters are being warmed as well as acidified by carbon pollution from different factors like gas in power plants, burning coal, oil and vehicles or the like.

It is being said that the lobsters along with the lobster industry have been important to the way of life of Maine, tourism economy, identity and coastal communities. Therefore, it was necessary to take federal action, which could help in cutting carbon pollution. The warning signs from change in climate for many years are being noticed by scientists.

"The oceans absorb a significant amount of carbon, making the water acidic. Acidic seas may harm lobsters' ability to form adequate shells, although more research is needed on these effects", affirmed the University of Maine Darling Marine Center's Research Professor, Dr. Rick Wahle.
