Matt Cheng English 403 Leanna Lostoski 10/10/2017 Research Proposal The context of the problem I will be answering/solving is how are Orcas affected by climate change and human interference. I will explain how Orcas are affected by climate change and human interference such as boats, nets and the building of dams.etc The problem behind climate change is that climate change affects the eating habits in Orcas as some Orcas feed underneath the Antarctic Ice which could cause a decrease in habitats for certain species of Orcas due to all the ice melting from climate change. In addition, decreases in food populations that are affected by climate change can also affect the populations of Orcas. There are also a certain species of Orcas that feed on salmon and salmon population has be reduced due to the ocean warming up to 1.8 degrees, leading to several severe consequences in the food chain. Orcas are also affected by human interference as a lot of them get caught in fishing nets which eventually lead to a decrease in population for Orcas. Plastic pollution can also affect

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
