TOEFL T P O 10 - Integrated Writing Task

The reading passage and the lecture are both about the sea otter population decline. The lecturer completely refutes the arguments in the article. She argues that these explanations are faulty.

Firstly, the lecture states that predation is the most plausible cause for the decline in otter population instead of pollution because no one dead otter can be found on the Alaska beaches. Therefore, if an infection caused by pollution was the cause a lot of dead animals could be seen. It is hard to find dead otters because of the predation. This directly opposes the reading passage that states that an increase in levels of chemicals could cause a decrease in otter’s defense to infections which indirectly provoke their deaths.

Secondly, the lecturer explains that although orcas prefer to hunt whales they are disappearing because of human hunters. As a result, orcas change their eating habits and start to eat sea otters, lions and seals. This idea disagrees with the article that claims that environmental pollution explains better this decline in a wide variety of species.

Finally, the lecturer believes that the uneven pattern of otter decline in some locations are related to the orcas’ access or not to these locations. Orcas can not enter in shallow or rocky locations that are the precise locations where otters population remains stable. The reading passage, on the other hand, argues that ocean currents or other environmental factors created these uneven pattern of reduction in otter’s population.
