    A swimmer at a popular Sydney beach has unwittingly come within inches of a grey nurse shark while floating on his back in shallow water. The close call was shown in remarkable drone footage shot above Maroubra Beach on Tuesday evening around 6.30pm, a time of day sharks are more likely to come close to shore to feed. In the video a man wearing boardshorts can be seen facing the beach in waist-deep water as the tide carries him towards a two-metre long grey nurse shark - which he does not see. A wave pulls him back and drops him to a spot where the shark is just over his right shoulder.

    DAMIEN DUFF has revealed he swims on nudist beaches rather than visiting the Nou Camp when he takes a trip to Barcelona. The former Chelsea and Newcastle winger, 42, took his first steps into senior football management on Wednesday after being appointed boss of Irish side Shelbourne. 1Damien Duff has revealed he visits nudist beaches when he heads to BarcelonaCredit: Sportsfile Duff had been on the Dublin-based club's books as Under-17s coach - following his stint as Republic of Ireland assistant manager - when technical director Alan Caffrey approached him about the top job. And the 100-cap former Irish international spilled an incredible revelation when speaking of Caffrey's desire to push his club to bigger and better things - admitting he swims on nudist beaches in the Spanish city. Recalling the technical director's trip to Barcelona to 'make a contact', Duff revealed: “Alan... you can see his drive.

    The State Meteorological Agency has on its website all the necessary information to know if this weekend or in 10 days it will be good weather on the beach where you have the apartment rented to spend the holidays. Half the country goes to the beach in summer. The other half a million goes to the mountain. And both groups have the same need: to know what the weather is going to do and arrive safely. As the climate in the mountains matters, but somewhat less, we are going to focus on those travelers to whom good weather can make or break a vacation. Those who go to the beach. To find out this, the State Meteorological Agency (AEMET), the highest meteorological body in Spain, has a section on its website dedicated exclusively to the coast of our country, being able to consult any of the thousands of coves and beaches that we have. On the map we just have to click on the area where we are going to specify the autonomous community, the province, then the town or...
    POLICE helicopters were this week deployed to order sunbathers on beaches to go home as Australia struggles to contain Covid’s surging Delta variant. Almost a third of the country’s 25million residents are now under the strictest instructions to stay at home in a bid to halt its spread. 4Australian cops patrol Bondi Beach in SydneyCredit: AFP A nation whose policy of closing its borders to the world was once held up as a paragon of good practice as the pandemic took hold, Australia is now facing a desperate race to vaccinate its citizens — with only a fifth fully jabbed. It has suffered a low number of deaths. But the current struggles Down Under have been seized upon as proof that the “zero Covid” strategy advocated by some scientists and politicians does not work in the long term.  Meanwhile, countries such as Sweden — which has never entered full lockdown restrictions — is now close to having zero Covid deaths and officials there believe the worst is behind them. Here, we look at the tactics used by different governments globally...
    Hundreds of dead sea creatures have washed ashore a month after the MV X-Press Pearl container ship caught fire and sank off the coast of Colombo. DINUKA LIYANAWATTE/Reuters Hundreds of dead sea creatures washed up on Sri Lanka's shores after a ship caught fire in May. The ship was carrying toxic chemicals and sank in early June. Marine species "never die in this way" around this period, said Sri Lanka's environment minister. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Carcasses of 176 turtles, 20 dolphins, and four whales have washed up on Sri Lankan shores after a cargo ship carrying toxic chemicals sank off the coast of Colombo, government officials said in court on Wednesday. The marine life was killed by toxins released from the MV X-Press Pearl when it caught fire on May 20 and sank on June 2, said Deputy Solicitor General Madawa Tennakoon, reported Reuters.

    LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Southern California’s beach report card is out and the news is mostly good. Last year’s water quality was excellent. According to Heal the Bay, 95% of the beaches received A’s and B’s. READ MORE: Jonathan Rodriguez-Zamora Charged In Drive-By Shooting That Wounded 3 In Long Beach Orange County had the most beaches on the Honor Roll. Los Angeles, Ventura, San Luis Obispo, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Alameda counties also had beaches with perfect water quality grades. The bad news — California’s wet weather grades are flunking. Only 57 percent of beaches got A’s and B’s when it rained. “This is because when it rains, that water runs over our dirty streets and roads and sidewalks and washes pollutants, including bacteria and viruses that can make people sick, into storm drains and creeks and out into our coastal waters,” said Heal the Bay President and CEO Shelley Luce.

    Volunteers work to clean up what has become known as "Plastic Beach" in Caserta, Italy. Vincenzo Izzo/LightRocket/Getty Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.This story was originally published by Yale E360 and is reproduced here as part of the Climate Desk collaboration. In Europe, beachgoers have grown accustomed to the dispiriting sight of plastic garbage strewn along shorelines. Indeed, 85 percent of the continent’s saltwater beaches and seas exceed pollution standards on marine litter. The Mediterranean Sea is the most defiled of all, with researchers collecting an average of 274 pieces of plastic refuse per 100 meters of shoreline. And beneath the waves, microplastics have turned coastal waters into toxic “plastic soups.” In an all-out push to clean up Europe’s beaches—one plank in the European Union’s trailblazing efforts to address the almost 28 million U.S. tons of plastic waste it generates annually—a ban comes into effect July 3 that halts the sale in EU markets of the 10 plastic products that most commonly wash up on the continent’s shores.

    Many nature lovers have observed green turtles hatching on Florida's beaches. But where the little amphibians go after making the perilous journey to the Atlantic has long been a mystery.  To solve it, researchers outfitted baby turtles with solar-powered tracking devices and set them loose in the Gulf Stream. Rather than just drifting with the current, it turns out most of the turtles spent their 'lost years' in the Sargasso Sea, an ocean gyre in the North Atlantic. The findings will help environmentalists protect this endangered species, especially during their vulnerable early years. Scroll down for video New research indicates green turtles spend their 'childhood' in the Sargasso Sea, where the abundant brown algae provides ample camouflage and keeps the water warm One of the largest species of sea turtles, green turtles are found mainly in tropical and subtropical waters. Their name comes from the greenish hue of their fat and cartilage, not the color of their shells. RELATED ARTICLES Previous 1 Next Scientists find plastic in sea turtles' MUSCLES for the...

    The hardening of the assumptions under which the mandatory nature of the mask is established has generated a great uproar between those who support and those who reject the measure, contemplated in the law of the “new normality”, already in force after its publication in the Official State Gazette (BOE) this Tuesday. The document modifies the rule to the mandatory use of masks and, after an amendment presented by the PSOE, the exception that consisted until now is eliminated when a safety distance of one and a half meters could be maintained. This change, therefore, establishes by law having to wear it even on beaches, swimming pools and, ultimately, in little crowded outdoor spaces, regardless of interpersonal distance. “The mask is here to stay”, asserted this Wednesday the Minister of Health after the meeting of the Interterritorial Health Council. Carolina Darias made this statement when asked on numerous occasions about this controversial modification; with which some communities and sectors (such as hospitality or tourism) have already expressed their disagreement and bewilderment. Therefore, the point it will be revised again...

    A second mysterious oil drum has washed up along Australia's east coast within just 48 hours, forcing a popular beach north of Sydney to close. The massive drum, originally feared to contain hydrochloric acid, ended up along the Newcastle Beach shoreline on Sunday in the wake of widespread flooding across New South Wales.  The mystery occurred two days after a similar 20,000 litre drum washed up on Sydney's Coogee Beach. Fire and Rescue NSW were called to Newcastle's main beach on Sunday afternoon and ordered shocked beachgoers to get out of the water during the clean up operation.  NSW Fire and Rescue hazardous materials team siphons  off the liquid from the 1000 litre drum marked for hydrochloric acid into the safe orange plastic bins. It turned out to be oil Hazardous materials crews rushed to the scene, amid fears the drums contained hydrochloric acid, known for its irritating odour which can cause chemical burns to the skin, eye damage and blindness.

    On the sonar screen that shows the bottom of the ocean from the Dana Wharf fishing boat above, the masses of tiny crabs packed close together look like big red clouds. Countless pelagic crabs, tiny critters also called tuna crabs, are hanging out just a few miles from the Orange County coastline. Last time these mini creatures were spotted around here, they washed up on local beaches in the millions – making a stinky mess the region’s coastal caretakers had to figure out how to haul away from the sand. But this time, the sea conditions are different, and it’s unclear if they’ll end up washing onto local beaches again. “We’re not seeing them on the surface and swimming around like in years past,” Dana Wharf Sporting and Whale Watching boat captain Brain Wooley said. “We’re seeing them on our sonar in the deeper water.” They are covering the ocean floor at the depth of about 230 feet to 260 feet, he said. Unfortunately for the charters, fish such as the sculpin and rockfish are filling up on the crabs...

    It’s not often the sandy beaches turn into a winter wonderland in Southern California. A cold storm that blew through Sunday night and into early Monday morning brought a rare sight to South Bay beaches on Monday: hail that pelted down and created what looked like a blanket of snow on the sand. Pono Barnes, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department Lifeguards, noticed the icy sand early morning in Manhattan Beach and El Segundo, taking images and posting them on social media. “It wasn’t technically snow, but it’s snow to us at the beach,” he said. It wasn’t the first time Southern California’s coastline has turned into a winter scene. Back in 2015, a cold winter storm in March blanked the sand in areas such as Huntington Beach and the South Bay with hail, which stuck around for hours, long enough that beachgoers made snowmen just steps away from the ocean. By late Monday morning, the clouds were parting for blue skies and the “snow” on the sand quickly melted away. Related Articles Woman ‘miraculously’ survives Christmas Ocean...
    Ever expanded masses of seaweed are choking the Atlantic ocean and becoming a menace to beaches in Mexico and the Caribbean. The massive sargassum blooms are a threat to biodiversity, fisheries and tourism, according to a new report from BBC. Researchers at the University of South Florida have determined that since 2011 the annual bloom has been increasing exponentially. “2011 was a tipping point. Before that we did not see much sargassum. After that we are seeing recurring, massive sargassum blooms in the central Atlantic,” Mengqiu Wang, a researcher from the University, told the news network. While the seaweed serves as a natural habitat for turtle hatchlings and hundreds of fish species, it becomes a nuisance after it washes ashore. Rotting sargassum smells like rotten eggs and can deter tourism and also attract unwelcome insects. The problem became so bad in Barbados that the government declared a national emergency in 2018 after beaches on the island nation were overwhelmed. In 2019, Mexican president Andrés Manuel López Obrador estimated that it would cost roughly $2.7 million to clean up the sargassum...

    Plastic-based food wrappers have ousted cigarette butts as the dominant form of litter polluting our beaches and waterways, experts have revealed.   Each September, the US-Based environmental group Ocean Conservancy holds the International Coastal Cleanup — a single day of litter picking across the globe. According to newly-released figures, last years' cleanup — involving more than 943,000 volunteers — saw some 4,771,600 food wrappers collected. These included sweet wrappers, crisp packets, drink pouches and similar — all of which are typically composed of layers of non-recyclable, low-density plastics. This is the first time that wrappers have been the largest type of litter found during the International Coastal Cleanup, which has been running since 1986. In last year's cleanup, participants collected a total of 32.5 million pieces of rubbish — weighing in at 20.8 million pounds — including 4.2 million cigarette butts. Experts have estimated that 11 million tons of plastic waste ends up in the ocean each year — impacting more than 800 species of marine wildlife.  Plastic-based food wrappers have ousted cigarette butts as the dominant form of litter polluting our beaches (pictured)...

Reuters/Eric Gaillard Since March, Vancouver Island resident Deborah Short has found five sea lion carcasses without their heads. While no one knows for sure, Seaview Marine Sciences marine mammal zoologist Anna Hall said the decapitations were probably done by humans. "Unless an unusual species of shark has entered the strait, which we don't know about, that has a preference for taking the heads... something unusual is going on in the Strait of Georgia," she told Vice. President of Pacific Balance Marine Management Tom Sewid, who is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation, told The Star that over the last few months he had received at least 120 emails asking about buying sea lion skulls.

    California recorded its largest ever single-day surge in coronavirus cases Monday with more than 8,000 new infections documented. Monday’s tally of infections broke California’s daily record for the third time in eight days.

    FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami) – There will be no celebrating July 4th on Miami-Dade, Broward, and Monroe county beaches. Broward Mayor Dale Holness will officially announce on Monday that the county’s beaches will be closed for the holiday. Just days after Miami-Dade announced their beaches would be closed for the 4th of July, Broward followed suit saying their beaches will be closed from July 3rd through July 5th. They were not only worried about increased visitors but people coming up from Miami-Dade.

    By PAN PYLAS, Associated Press LONDON (AP) — Police around the southern English coastal town of Bournemouth urged people to stay away Thursday as thousands defied coronavirus social distancing rules and flocked to local beaches on what is the U.K.'s hottest day of the year so far. A “major incident” has been declared for the largely rural area that can only be navigated in most places by car on narrow lanes. This gives additional powers to local authorities and emergency services to tackle the issue. Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole council said services were “completely overstretched” as people sought the sanctuary of the seaside on a day meteorologists confirmed as the hottest of 2020. The mercury hit 33.3 C (around 92 F) at London's Heathrow Airport. Extra police patrols have been brought in and security is in place to protect waste collectors who the council said faced “widespread abuse and intimidation” as they emptied overflowing bins. Roads, which were gridlocked into the early hours, now have signs telling people the area is full, according to the council. Council leader Vikki Slade...

    The Big Apple’s eight public beaches will open for swimming starting July 1, Mayor Bill de Blasio officially announced Wednesday as he detailed his “Get Cool NYC” plan for the summer. “Lifeguards ready to go, training is being competed,” de Blasio said during his daily City Hall press briefing. “It’ll be a great day for New York City — another part of our comeback to have our beaches up again. “We were able to make this announcement today because of you — because of all you did to fight through the coronavirus,” de Blasio said, noting that social distancing should still be practiced. The city’s 14 miles of beaches — which includes Orchard Beach in the Bronx; Coney Island and Manhattan Beach in Brooklyn; Rockaway Beach in Queens; and Midland Beach, South Beach, Cedar Grove Beach and Wolfe’s Pond Park Beach on Staten Island — have been open to sun worshippers, but due to coronavirus restrictions, swimming had been barred. Lifeguards will be on duty daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and city Parks Department ambassadors will continue to...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — New York City’s beaches will open for the summer. Mayor Bill de Blasio confirmed Tuesday night that city beaches can officially open on July 1 and swimming will be permitted. The rumors are true: NYC beaches will open for swimming on July 1. Let’s keep playing it safe: social distance & face coverings, even at the beach! — Mayor Bill de Blasio (@NYCMayor) June 24, 2020 The city says they have hundreds of lifeguards trained and ready to go. The mayor has previously voiced concerns about reopening beaches too soon because of the coronavirus pandemic. “The situation where you’re going to group tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people in the same place is a more sensitive decision,” de Blasio said earlier this month. Other ways to cool off, however, remain shuttered, CBS2’s Alice Gainer reports. Normally when the temperature hits 80 degrees, spray showers at city parks are turned on, a very simple way to beat the heat. But right now, they’re bone dry. “I think they should be turned back on...
    The Big Apple’s beaches will open for swimming beginning July 1. Mayor Bill de Blasio will make the announcement Wednesday, according to City Hall. The city’s 14-miles of beaches opened Memorial Day — as is customary — but due to coronavirus restrictions, swimming was prohibited. Beachgoers flocking to the shores have had to comply with strict social-distancing guidelines that the mayor said is being enforced by city Parks workers. On any given summer day roughly 620 lifeguards man the city-operated beaches, according to a member of DC 37, the labor union representing the workers. It’s unclear if that staffing level will be in place when the beaches officially open for swimming next Wednesday.
