Scientists have issued a dire warning to the world. Meanwhile, it is starting to come true. In addition, everyone in Vancouver, Canada who visits the beach is afraid. The beach now smells like decaying flesh, and dead animal shells are rustling beneath feet.



Zoologist Christopher Harold visited Vancouver sea beach recently. He informed Oysters, Fish, and Snails are boiling in the sea’s warm water. Scientists predict that hundreds of millions of aquatic animals will die in Canada over the next week due to the continued extreme temperatures.

According to a British Daily Guardian report, when Christopher and his team went to the beach in Vancouver, the temperature was there 50 degrees Celsius or 122 degrees Fahrenheit. In addition, the final tolerable temperature of many aquatic animals, such as oysters, is 100 degrees Fahrenheit, but only for a few hours.

Alyssa, an ecologist, described her experience, saying she had to find a way to break free from the shells of sea creatures before swimming on Vancouver’s beach.

Last week, temperatures in the Pacific Northwest region of the Canadian province of British Columbia rose to 49.8 degrees Celsius, surpassing all previous records. Hundreds of people have died in the blaze. A big fire broke out here at the same time. It thought that many places burnt of that incident. Moreover, the death of animals is gradually becoming apparent.

Scientists have warned people that another devastating outbreak is on the way in the coming weeks. The blaze doubted to sweep across the western United States and southwestern Canada.

No doubt, these aquatic animals are at the highest risk. They do not have the opportunity to find shade, nor do they have the power to run from the sea and live on land.

Snail and oyster species are important water purifiers. The greater the number of aquatic animals dying, causing more water quality losing, and again causing more and more aquatic animals dying, causing more water quality deteriorating. Hundreds of different microscopic critters live in every square meter of oysters. Those tiny creatures may have become refugees after losing their master and died sooner.

Many were surprised by the news of the Seaweed migration last summer. Climate change has caused the erosion or extinction of 35 percent of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef corals, which was confirmed in 2016.

This photosynthetic plant, which is not seeing most of the time underwater, is not only food for fish but also a protector of water quality. These types of changes in freshwater and Brackish water ecosystems are responsible for the climate change effects.

Marine zoologists fear the effects of the heatwave could kill hundreds of millions of aquatic animals in Canada’s Pacific Ocean. This heat dome is created by trapping the warm air of the ocean in the atmosphere.

The recent past observed that the dead bodies of turtles, whales, and dolphins floating one after another on the sea beaches in Bangladesh. Dogs are eating some dead turtles and dolphins. Moreover, some spreading the stench of rotting. They are not just dying because of any ongoing incidence/attack at sea but by the cause of sea pollutions.

The environment and ecology became endanger after sinking several coal and oil ships in the Shyla River in the Sundarbans. In May this year, a forest fire broke out in the Varni area of ​​Das in the Sarankhola Forest Range of the Sundarbans. In a few days, the fire has burnt the many Sundari (Heritiera littoralis), Gewa (Excoecaria agallocha), Garan(Heritiera fomes)  plants and many shrubs in a few acres of the protected forest area by continuing the bush fire.

This bush fire may suspect from the Bidis or the cigarette thrown by the Wild honey collectors or shrubs collectors. The possibility that some bodies intentionally set the fire also cannot blow away. Investigators also reported that it might occur from methane gas formed due to leaf rot. Whatever the cause of the fire, if it turns into a blaze, it is not surprising.

It is very typical for the existing Biodiversity of the Sundarbans to be endangered by that fire. In the meantime, enough examples can express. According to the Forest Department, 23 fires incidence in Sundarbans took place in the last two decades.



According to the forest department, during the 22nd fire, 71 acres and 66 percent of the forest resources (including various Sundari trees and shrubs) were burnt, with a financial value of Tk.18,055,533 (Tk.85 = US$1.00 approx.) Though it is possible to calculate the number of plants, the natural damage caused to animals becoming endangered due to such fires or oil-coal cargo accidents.

While the temperature increasing in different parts of the globe is historically surpassing day by day, it cannot guarantee that even a small fire will never turn into a brushfire in our Sundarbans.

Oyster shells have to be removed to make a walkway on that beach in Canada now. This phenomenon will be more evident in a few days. If such a situation happens in Cox’s Bazar, St. Martin’s or Kuakata, what will be the scene!

The number of cyclones that have recently formed in the Bay of Bengal is increasing rapidly. Almost every year, a big storm hits. People who know the sea, like Christopher Harol or Alyssa, have escaped from the heat. That is not possible for animals.

Although we or some of us may be able to escape, it will be temporary, and soon we too will have to write the names of many known animals on the endangered list. Those who need the most to protect the environment.
