Prevent Prize Winner: Whales Babysitter by Zeyu Yang & Danni He
Excerpt from the project: “In 2010, scientists discovered an approach to ecological regulation based on cetaceans in which the vertical movement of whales to bring minerals to the ocean surface is called a ‘whale pump’, and the transoceanic migration of whales is called the “conveyor belt of whales”. Both of these behaviors increase the phytoplankton population in the sea, which may indirectly help fix carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and reduce global warming. Statistics show a 1% increase in phytoplankton from the activity. of whales would add hundreds of millions of tonnes of additional carbon capture. every year, which is equivalent to a sudden addition of 200 million trees to the face of the earth. “~ Read more
