Plastic microphones first discovered in the destruction of wild animals, from the South American fur seals

For the first time, the Planet Microfire was discovered on the "wild animal" chair, South American fur seals, and concluded that a team of researchers financed by Maurice Animal Foundation in Georgia thinks that scanning can be effective in monitoring environmental microphones and microprocessor environmental levels Their research was published Marine Pollution Bulletin.


"It is not a secret that one of the main threats to marine ecosystems is plastic contamination, but now we learn how much problem is this problem," says Dr. Mauricio Seguel, researcher at the University of Georgia. "These samples are invisible, invisible, we want to understand the factors that continue to be distributed and what these animals mean in the southern hemisphere."

The team studied 51 women in the South American fur seals on the Guapo Island, Southwest Chile, from December 2015 to March 2016. Each sample of the inorganic material dissolved in the laboratory, which analyzes only microscopic and plastic particles. Researchers found that 67 percent of the samples showed a large number of scarce microphones, which have spread to the captivity in captivity.

Microplastics are plastic fragments less than 5 millimeters. Microfilm is a poorly studied form of microflash. They are a small plastic hair that is 1 millimeter-sized, such as polyester or nylon, and can be completed after the cleansing of the waste water in the ocean water, regardless of how effective it is. They can also have a wide range of contaminants.

The researchers believe that microfilmers are in the island of Goofo by changing the flow of the ocean rather than the plankton consumed by the plankton and the food chain through fish and finally seal. There are no sufficient evidence to determine if microphobes have side effects on mammals, but some studies have shown that morphological changes in fish.

Exercise analysis, the team notes, may be a good way to monitor the use of marine mammals for plastic as effective and non-invasive, does not threaten any researchers or animals, and easily emits both fur seals in feces. Dr. Seguel says his colleagues are doing other parts of South America.

"It's not too late to spend our oceans, but one of the first steps is to determine what the damage we have done to ecosystems in our work, as well as the production and destruction of plastic," says Dr. Kelly Dill, Maurice Animal Fund's mid-term vice research programs President. "This kind of study will help us to learn the answers to better decisions about marine life."

Maurice Animal Fund funded other fur trails related to Dr. Seguel's team on the island of Guupo. One finds that deadly factors of South American fur seals have caused ticks, pneumonia and sea surface temperatures. On the other hand, researchers have discovered hookworms feed at a constant rate of their stamp pup hosts until they produce eggs and die, a strategy that also often kills the pups as well.
