  Pero, ¿qué es un Océano? U n océano es una enorme masa de agua salada que representa un importante ecosistema para el equilibrio ecológico de la Tierra y que constituye el  71% de la superficie terrestre , gracias a los 360,132,000 km² de su extensión. Y,  ¿cuántos océanos existen? Lo que cubre gran parte de la superficie de la Tierra, es en sí, un solo océano. Es decir, una sola masa de agua. Para un mejor estudio, el hombre dividió esta enorme masa en 5 partes de acuerdo a su ubicación geográfica. Por ello, la expresión “los océanos”, es correcta. Importancia de los océanos *Absorben entre un 25 y 30% del dióxido de carbono emitido a la atmósfera, por lo que Equilibran el clima de toda la Tierra. *Representan numerosos ecosistemas para diversas formas de vida animal, vegetal, bacteriana, protista y fúngica. *Son hogar para miles de especies, conocidas y aún desconocidas. Existen aproximadamente 250,000 especies conocidas, pero se cree que puedan haber 750,000 más. *Proveen fuentes

Romania announces Ban on trophy hunting of Bears, Wolves and Wildcats

A loophole in the European law allows thousands of Romania’s wild animals to be hunted for sport every year.

But following protests by environmental groups, the Ministry of Environment announced that it had cancelled an order that would have allowed trophy hunting of about 1,700 wild animals this year.

Conflict animals can still be hunted, but only the ministry-approved Wildlife Emergency Service – SUAS, a newly created state agency, would be allowed to shoot the animals if necessary.

In September 2016, the country’s Ministry of Environment published a draft order for public debate, proposing the shooting of 552 bears, 657 wolves and 482 wild cats over a 12-month period in the largest-ever hunting quota. The order has now been suspended, local media reported.
Despite the ban, conflict animals that damage property or endanger human lives in other ways can still be hunted. But only the ministry-approved Wildlife Emergency Service – SUAS, a newly created state agency, would be allowed to shoot the animals if necessary, the ministry announced.
The ministry has also decided to establish a working group of experts, which will include wildlife experts, civil society representatives, hunters and farmers, and the Romanian Academy, to help find
the best ways to estimate large carnivore populations in Romania and offer suggestions to manage the animals, Environment minister Cristina Pasca Palmer announced on her Facebook page.
“The Carpathian mountains are home to more biodiversity than anywhere else in Europe, but for too long they have been ruthlessly exploited for forestry and hunting. Let’s hope the government’s decision is a sign of things to come,” Gabriel Paun, a Romanian conservationist told the Guardian.
