The plight of the Roseate tern and the British merchant navy are brought together here! Both are threatened with extinction, the red ensign is becoming an increasingly rare sight in the global shipping industry

Two Endangered Species

The plight of the Roseate tern and the British merchant navy red ensign are brought together here! Both are threatened with extinction, the red ensign is becoming an increasingly rare sight in the global shipping industry. This is mostly because of political encouragement of ship owners to become true internationalists and use cheap foreign labour and fly flags of convenience .  Over all decline in ship numbers caused by the likes of containerization and the era of super tankers and giant bulk carriers must also be blamed but the future of the Red Duster  is very uncertain.
