A remarkable new story is unfolding in the Arctic. As the ice melts and polar bears struggle to survive in a fast-warming world, another animal is taking over the polar bear's once dominant role as top predator. An ever-increasing number of killer whales - or orcas - are appearing in Arctic waters in the summer months, attracted to these huge hunting grounds by the growing expanses of open water and attacking the same prey animals polar bears once survived on: seals, narwhal, belugas, and bowhead whales. Polar bears may be classified as marine mammals, but they are not adapted to hunting in the water despite being able to swim huge distances. They need the ice to hunt and as it vanishes they can no longer reach their traditional prey. And they are certainly no match for the world's greatest aquatic hunter - the killer whale. As the polar bear's world is shrinking, the orca's is growing.

Documentary which unravels the story of notorious performing whale Tilikum, who - unlike any orca in the wild - has taken the lives of several people while in captivity. So what exactly went wrong? Shocking, never-before-seen footage and interviews with trainers and experts manifest the orca's extraordinary nature, the species' cruel treatment in captivity over the last four decades and the growing disillusionment of workers who were misled and endangered by the highly profitable sea-park industry.

Can Poetry Save the Earth?: A Field Guide to Nature Poems
Mr. John Felstiner | ISBN: 0300137508 | PDF | 435 pages | April 2009 | 2 MB

Poems vivifying nature have gripped people for centuries. From Biblical times to the present day, poetry has continuously drawn us to the natural world. In this thought-provoking book, John Felstiner explores the rich legacy of poems that take nature as their subject, and he demonstrates their force and beauty. In our own time of environmental crises, he contends, poetry has a unique capacity to restore our attention to our environment in its imperiled state. And, as we take heed, we may well become better stewards of the earth.

In forty brief and lucid chapters, Felstiner presents those voices that have most strongly spoken to and for the natural world. Poets—from the Romantics through Whitman and Dickinson to Elizabeth Bishop and Gary Snyder—have helped us envision such details as ocean winds eroding and rebuilding dunes in the same breath, wild deer freezing in our presence, and a person carving initials on a still-living stranded whale.
