Studies have shown that the “oceans fastest shark is being threatened by overfishing” (Science Daily, 2017). It has been stated that the shortfin mako shark shows dramatic mortality rates than had previously thought (SD, 2017). This article in question takes a deep dive into the world of unsustainable fishing, and how “satellite tags for makos and possibly other fish species can be a time-efficient way and a fisheries-independent tool for gathering useful fisheries-interaction data, including answering fundamental questions about the levels of fishing survival and mortality” (SD, 2017).

In recent news, there have been debates in regards to the application of the TransCanada Keystone pipeline. This mega pipeline allows for the transportation of bitumen from Canada to the United States, connecting the two major countries together in efforts of economic benefit. The pipeline has been questioned by its proposed pathway, due to its negative effects on Indigenous Peoples land, ecosystems and its major environmental concerns. There is talk to further delay this 9-year-old project by presenting a proposed reroute of the pipeline, to avoid any environmental degradation.
