The Cay Curacao The Climate By: Theodore Taylor
Prezi by: Jessie Bryant Average temperature is 82º F/27º C. The sun shines there most of the time. It lies outside of the hurricane belt. What I/You Could Do In Curacao For Fun.. –Scuba diving. Curacao is known for its underwater paradise.
-Hato caves. They are limestone caves, now open to public. What type of tree should you stay away from on the island? Explain why You should stay away from the Manzanilla tree because it is very poisonous. The Carnival They feature hordes of fantastic floats, costumes, and characters, plus Carnival royalty elected during full-scale beauty contests. Mission One Wildlife in Curacao -Snakes
-Tropical birds
-White tail deer
-Whip tale lizards A house from Curacao.. Sharks Mission Four 5 things someone should do to avoid a shark attack -Stay out of the water if bleeding
-Keep out of the water during darkness or twilight, when many sharks are more active. Avoid murky water.
-Snorkel or dive in groups
-Don't wander too far from shore
-Don't wear shiny jewelry
-Remain calm - Sharks have been on earth for over over 350 million years Sharks attack fewer than 100 people each year. 10 of those die. -swift predators eat fish, squid, other sharks, and marine mammals.
-slow-swimming predators crush and eat shellfish (crabs and clams) from the ocean floor
-filter feeders sieve tiny bits of plankton and small animals from the water as they swim with open mouths. They eat huge amounts of these tiny animals and plants. -The scariest and largest shark known was the Megalodon (Carcharodon or Carcharocles megalodon); it is now extinct. It was an ancient, meat-eating shark that lived between 25 million and 1.6 million years ago. It was up to 40 feet (12 m) long and its teeth were each the size of a person's hand! Coral Reefs Mission Five How Coral Forms The reef's massive structure is formed from coral polyps, tiny animals that live in colonies; when coral polyps die, they leave behind a hard, stony, branching structure made of limestone. A Coral Reef... Are warm, clear, shallow ocean habitats that are rich in life.
The coral provides shelter for many animals in this complex habitat, including sponges, nudibranchs, and fish jellyfish, anemones, sea stars turtles, sea snakes, snails, and mollusks. The Location Coral reefs develop in shallow, warm water, usually near land, and mostly in the tropics; coral prefer temperatures between 70 and 85 ° F. There are coral reefs off the eastern coast of Africa, off the southern coast of India, in the Red Sea, and off the coasts of northeast and northwest Australia and on to Polynesia. There are also coral reefs off the coast of Florida, USA, to the Caribbean, and down to Brazil. Some Things That Threating Coral Reefs Are.. -Major threats to coral reefs are water pollution, dredging off the coast, careless collecting of coral specimens, and sedimentation There are Direct and Indirect threats.. Direct threats are generally isolated incidents involving boats, divers and fishermen on the reef. Propellers and anchors can break apart and crush coral, destroying years, if not decades, of coral growth Indirect threats aren’t always so easy to pinpoint, as they are generally associated with water quality and clarity. Patch reefs These are young patches of coral which grow up off the bottom of the sea. They are common in lagoons and often reach the surface and spread outwards, forming a pool in the centre. Moray Eel Malaria Mission Seven Malaria is transmitted to humans by the bite of Anopheles mosquitoes Symptoms of Malaria -Infection begins with a bite from an infected mosquito. -The parasite travels from the mosquito to your liver, where the parasite begins to reproduce. The parasite leaves the liver and travels to the bloodstream, where it infects red blood cells. The parasite reproduces in the red blood cells, which destroys the cells and releases more parasites into the bloodstream. If another mosquito bites an infected person, that mosquito can then carry the infection to someone else.
