6:09 pm
in a world where journalism as an industry is changing we have fortunate to be able to continue to expand to continue to have that pass and drive and present the stories in a way that is important to worthless. everyone has a story worth hearing. and cover those that are often ignored we don't weigh our coverage towards one particular region or continent that's why i joined al-jazeera .

one of the biggest problems facing our oceans and the loss of seagrass meadows one check rule for roughly fifteen percent of the ocean's total carbon storage perhaps or they hope to wife as much carbon dioxide as rain forest and they're also question marine habitats for many endangered ocean species. but here on elk or in slew in central california the tide could be turning for sea grass thanks to some unexpected allies. trying to meet their.
6:11 pm
this nine hundred hectare as she wary is where rivers throughout this region meet the pacific ocean this is the agricultural powerhouse of the united states and fertilizer and pesticide runoff threaten the balance of this delicate ecosystem so having farmers so close to the ocean on what what impact does that have on the water quality well i mean were you coastal environments close to urban. cold forward winds close. like. it grows with the rocks there mentioning start composing over half of the world sea grass meadows are in decline but here in al corn slew they're making a surprising comeback. oh wow.
6:12 pm
at one time there were thousands of sea otters in california but in the eighteen hundreds they were hunted to near extinction for their soft fur pelts. there are now more than one hundred in this as consuming a staggering one hundred thousand crabs per year. this federation's appetite has helped restore the balance of this ecosystem by triggering a chain reaction known as a trophic cascade. sea otters the crabs lower crop numbers allows smaller invertebrates like sea slugs to thrive and these creatures are crucial for the health of seagrass eating algal build up on the leaves they allow sunlight to reach the plants. because sea otters are so crucial to the ecosystem scientists are carefully monitoring their slow and steady come back. they

capture them and tag them with radio devices. firing their work really well. because probably very close. what's the purpose of proper we go out seven days a week is to go out and find individuals see where they are what they're doing. the other part of it is a stuff so we can understand the distribution of otters in this area what are they eating. how are they doing health wise there's one right there that's three four nine six so that beeping is an arm that beeping is from the radio transmitter that's we surgically implanted in her so that helps a smooth paper. why don't you take a look here out in there. and. along the west coast of north america researchers have noticed that the return of
6:14 pm
top level predators is having an impact on restoring all kinds of underwater life and the entire ocean system. what the sea otters do it's kind of it turns the tables against. groupings of facts of sea otters eating crabs essentially the same grass an advantage again so if we introduce top predators like sea otters the ecosystems around the world will have a knock on that potentially in the prediction is yes so if you re store food webs which means a lot of times bringing back a top predator to a system that we wiped out we have the great potential for restoring the health of that system.

showing around came to germany as refugees this is just one of several billion museums taking part in the project called a meeting point and as well as bringing people together one of its aims is to emphasise the contribution of migrants right up to the present day to western culture. because i've been here for some time i can help them with lots of things that mrs ford to me the great thing is it's not just about museums about forming a new life it is a part of life it's culture the story of a british italian man experiencing life close up in a palestinian refugee camp and it's. coming face to face with the daily lives of its residents some of whom had lived there for seventy years but it's been there a few jomo soldier's life it's not been on the show seven days in beirut that . on al-jazeera.

6:18 pm
these one hundred refugees are fed have drowned after their boat capsized in the mediterranean sea off the coast of libya it follows a compromise deal between e.u. leaders in brussels that they hope will control the influx of refugees trying to cross into europe agreement pledges more funding to turkey and north african countries including libya to stop sea crossings it also gives member states the option of setting up migrant processing centers on their own soil lawrence lee has been following those talks in brussels and joins us live from them wondering how this is filtering through the response to this plan. well i mean if you if you boil it all down from where we were when they all arrived yesterday afternoon in langley merkel was talking about the future of the european union being under threat effectively they were given a choice of their own making which was to try to continue. with some sort of
6:19 pm
notional idea of implementing humanitarian law and taking asylum claim and saying and then deciding what to do with them at the risk of collapsing the european union because of so much resistance from the populace governments in places like rome and budapest or alternatively to appease those governments by coming up with a more unpalatable deal which relied almost entirely on stronger and stronger measures to keep people out in colorado if you feel like perhaps some people might point to things like these new migration census as ways in which they could process and redistributes refugees among countries which are prepared to accept them a bit better in future but there are some deeply controversial things in the communique particularly on a day when a hundred people have drowned yet again off the coast of libya the idea that they're going to work more closely with the libyan coast guard a while ago we spoke six who's the leader of the green group in the european
6:20 pm
parliament who pointed out that this will mean european money probably going directly to armed groups in libya. the libyan coast guard is very well known to mistreat people chip beat people we know the how the situation in libya is there is horrendous human rights violations happening people are raped people i've beaten be but tortured and this is something that europeans certainly should not supports but this is exactly what we're seeing right now and i mean there's not even a state in libya basically giving money to militias that might fight against each other tomorrow with european money and maybe european weapons. and lawrence we are waiting on a press conference i believe what are the expectations then what's likely to happen next. well i mean in terms of the migration issue that was put to better five o'clock in the morning when the communique was issued so so so that's now done
6:21 pm
i mean they have been saying about other things this morning very briefly on breakfast for example which they can't talk about because the u.k. still has no position whatsoever but they said that the focus really is still going to be on migration the the vagueness of much of the language phrases like consensus needs to be found on. refining the dublin accords and finding a new level of accord with africa to stop migration these are all well and good but it doesn't mean anything in practice because there's nothing concrete attached to it and really now the summits winding up the attention is going to shift i think fairly quickly to italy and germany italy because it was the really renegade country which said it would collapse any sort of deal if you didn't like it so what do they think about all this now in germany because angela merkel's junior coalition partner still got to decide if it's happy with the deal that she's going to go back to berlin with and will they try to start closing their borders as well it looks in the short term is it probably for the political level of got away with
6:22 pm
it and they say this fudge will be enough to stagger on in the meantime but frankly in the end there is no common european asylum policy anymore and the whole idea of countries behaving in the same way as each other each doing their bits the quota system for example refugees is now completely daves it's now falling to individual countries to decide what they want to do and countries which don't want to do anything it's all places like hungary now have a totally free reign to do that as well so the idea of as a joke here is approach across the block has now more let's go let's go over to germany then thanks lawrence lee and bring in dominic kane and bell and i'm just learning how medicals coming out of this stock. well that's certainly one of the questions being posed here it is emerging over the course of the last half an hour or so from some germany's agencies that there are four countries apparently that are prepared to negotiate with germany about the return
6:23 pm
of some some people this country specifically being spain and poland and denmark and france well the question will be what form of that take and we understand that the interior minister of germany will be involved in that he's the person who's been agitating for the to have the ability to turn refugees back at the border so what does this all mean in terms of german politics and what has driven this with me to discuss these matters is a left turn from rasmussen global mr going to what should we make of this what how important has german domestic politics been and arriving at what would appear to be a european solution having it very much dominated the agenda without being officially an issue on the agenda and i think the calculation of the minister of interior as a whole for another populist like australia chancellor of course is was said was a very successful one so they are dominating the discourse america was talking about camps and often africa about shutting down the borders about increased
6:24 pm
spending for frontex so it's exactly these aspects of the populace were running the election campaigns on and of course at the very end minister of interior is now trying to prove to his home constituencies in prior to the elections in october so we can deliver but the question of course is are they really the winners or they're just victims of the diskos they didn't start and then what about the mood politically here in berlin today following on from this late night deal seemed that it was done in brussels what how would you assess the mood here in berlin politically today i think there's a big east of course because for for some. days two days actually people have been really really taking this into account that there could be a split. and then end of the government and then we would face new elections and that was so dominating and i think it's also saw so. frustrating for everybody just to imagine we could get back into
6:25 pm
a situation which nobody wanted to see coming back very soon but i think is also kind of the mystic the different partners and to cheer they will cheer to this agreement although actually the problems have not been solved in the first place but at least the dynamic have been kicked off and the process will start now just as a whole for had said that on monday if there was no solution which is part of the c.i.s. you could really get behind that he might go it alone that he might decide to use his ministerial powers to start turning refugees back at the borders what can what do you expect to happen now in the net in the days and weeks to come regarding border controls here in germany but i don't i don't see it so i think he's very much aware of where the red line is where the chancellor actually said it to say ok if he's acting unilaterally then this is an and then actually this is up to her competence to make a decision he will very cleverly. fly under this raider and under this red line and
6:26 pm
try to execute as much as he can as minister of interior and as you pointed out so he's now in charge of the negotiation of the bilateral agreements and i and i expect there will be more not just the four countries but there will be more once this dynamic had been set off because for the populist across europe this is a big victory over germany and over america as well coming culture migration policy because they are now actually in the lead and they are now trying to and they are successfully closing down the borders of europe. was involved thank you very much so that's a view of the mood here in berlin reacting to that late night or perhaps i should say early morning deal that was arrived at in brussels for now back to you thank you dominic a it's move on to other news thailand's prime minister says visits at the flooded cave where the search for twelve young footballers. and a coach has entered its sixth day. urged destroyed families waiting for news to keep the faith within a thousand people are not involved in the rescue mission including teams from
