In the name of World Ocean's Day (June 8), scientists from the California Academy of Sciences are celebrating the discovery of more than 100 marine species in the Philippines.
Scientists are still working to figure out how various noise pollution affects marine animals, and now new research suggests that the building of wind turbines may be putting the hearing of UK harbor seals at risk.
Scientists are just beginning to understand how whales produce sound, and now new research suggests that like humans, North Atlantic right whales boast unique individual voices.
Overfishing, pollution, habitat loss and climate change are all factors that are threatening marine life. But new research has determined that human influence the most threatening to tropical marine ecosystems.
It's no secret that countless species are threatened or in danger of extinction across our tiny blue world. What may be a surprise, however, is that a great deal of those extinctions may be natural. A new study has taken to the fossil record to determine just how many aquatic species would still be on their way out even if humans had not been around to sully their natural habitats.
It is well known that plastic pollution is riddling our oceans and threatening various marine life, so now scientists are using drones to map out this debris and better understand how to deal with the problem.
For more than 250 million years, four-limbed land animals known as tetrapods have repeatedly conquered the Earth's oceans. Now new research is revealing just how these marine predators successfully evolved amidst this ever-changing environment.
It's no secret that ocean acidification caused by climate change is currently wreaking havoc on our oceans, but a new study shows that acidic oceans also triggered the greatest mass extinction ever on Earth.
It's no secret that climate change is wreaking havoc on our world's oceans, and now new research has shown that it can take marine life millennia to recover from climate change-related upheavals.
The United Kingdom is planning to create the world's largest marine reserve in a remote part of the South Pacific, offering new, unprecedented protections to the more than 1,200 marine species that call this place home.
Two major marine sanctuaries located off the northern California coast are to get a massive upgrade and more than double in size, the Obama administration and NOAA announced last week.
Before you rejoice over a possible solution to the ongoing plastic pollution problem, know that Great Barrier Reef corals that eat microplastics may be putting themselves at risk with their unique appetite, according to a new study.
It's no secret that ocean acidification is wreaking havoc on the corals, sea stars, sharks and others that live beneath the waves. But now new research shows that this phenomenon is hitting closer to home and threatening US coastal communities, too.
Marine animals just keep getting bigger and bigger, and it's not because they are eating their Wheaties. New research finds that over time evolution favors ever-increasing body size - and not by chance.
