Tento asi 10m vyrustek se na nás během natáčení priplaval podívat. Jeden pohled z očí do očí a já se musím z fotek stále utvrzovat, že to nebyl jen sen, ale že jsme měli v ten den tak obrovské štěstí 😊 #spermwhales #whale #cetacean #ocean #dive #bbc #natgeo #bbcearth #ikelite #underwate #photography 📷 #animals #marine #life #discovery #discoverychannel #canon #prochyphoto

Yesterday we welcomed our new team of interns. With great flat seas today, we are off to get suited, booted, and out to collect some data. . . On our last survey, we came across a pod that haven’t been seen by us all season. This pod is more commonly seen in the Tay estuary and further south, so we were surprised to see them. It’s always exciting to see new dolphins for the year, and we are keen to find these guys again. They are a particularly interesting group, having 2 dolphins with scoliosis! . . . #cetacean #cetaceanresearch #cetaceanresearchandrescue #cetaceanresearchandrescueunit #dolphin #dolphins #dolphinresearch #scotland #scottishwildlife #marinebiology #marineresearch #bottlenosedolphin #bottlenosedolphins #babydolphin #wilddolphin #wilddolphins #taiji #thecove #letthembefree #anticaptivity @bornfreefoundation @landrover @tmd_defenderspecialist @seashepherd @richardobarry @ricobarrydolphinproject @aquaticfanatic1

WOW!!!!!! Where do we even begin with today's whale watching adventure? Our guests were absolutely spoilt with phenomenal interactions from some very inquisitive whales 🐳🐬 We had 3 juveniles come to check us out and with the boat engines switched off it was all on their terms which is our ultimate goal with every tour! At many points during our encounter we were all discussing who was watching who as these guys were swimming on their sides so that they could eye us up 😍❤ Join us for a whale watch this season to have your mind blown by these incredibly majestic animals 🐳 . . . . . #humpbackwhale #humpback #humpbackhighway #whalewatching #boattrip #ocean #cetacean #wow #mindblowing #juvenile #experienceofalifetime #wildlife #bestdayever #wildandfree #nature #montagueisland #narooma #whataday #majestic #nsw #friendsatsea #naturelovers #wildaboutwhales #wildaboutwhalesnsw @destination_nsw @eurobodalla @visitnsw @nswsouthcoast @nswnationalparks @tourismnsw @sapphirecoastnsw

This past school year, I was able to take an amazing class trip to the Pacific Northwest. It was my first time on a plane, first time seeing snow, first time out of the country... my world literally got a lot bigger. We got to do so many experiences that I'll never forget, but I think the highlight of the trip for everyone came on the last day when we got to see wild orcas in the San Juan Islands. These 3 are from the T-124 pod, and from left to right are the adult son, matriarch mother, and the mother's young daughter. This was my first and only (so far! ) experience with anything pertaining to ice, but it's as close as I'll be able to being able to talk about the Arctic with one of my pictures. ..... While Florida seems like it is rapidly changing from climate change, the state most affected at this point without a doubt is Alaska. This summer, Alaska's waters were completely ice-free, with the closest ice being 150 miles from their northern coast. The same thing happened in 2017, but that was the first time in human history, and it happened sooner and more drastically this summer. As the ice melts, the darker water absorbs more sunlight and heats up, which melts more ice. Also, about 95% of the old, multi-year sea ice has already melted, and only the thin annual ice remains. As more old ice deposits melt, they also release stored methane, which is 30 times worse than CO2 for trapping heat. Both of these are contributing to a runaway effect, continuing to rapidly warm and melt the Arctic ice. ..... But there's good news too. Since we banned the use of dangerous aerosol chemicals in the 1980's, the hole in the ozone layer over Antarctica has nearly completed repaired itself. This proves it's not too late. The ecosystems can repair themselves, we just have to work together to give them a fighting chance, lest we pay with our survival as a species. #orcas #killerwhale #cetacean #climatechange #climate #climatestrike #marinemammal #sanjuanislands #whalewatching #ice #arctic #alaska #wild #pathofthepanther #floridawildlifecorridor #wildflorida #science #florida #keys #realflorida #ocean #swamp #everglades #bigcypress #conservation #sustainable #nikon #photography

It isn't uncommon for the youngsters in a group of pilot whales to join up while the adults are busy feeding, resting, etc. These playful "mobs" race around erratically, spyhopping, pec-slapping, and spending copious amounts of time swimming upside down. On several occasions it seemed they were trying to include our boat in their shenanigans! Both of the whales in this picture are juveniles.

“Oh, How I’ve Missed You...” . . . We ran into some of the Southern Resident killer whales in Canadian waters, specifically a handful of members of L pod. Because of a Canadian moratorium on watching these critically endangered whales, we were unable to stay with them. I managed to snap this picture of L91 (Muncher ), a female born in 1995 like me, as we passed by them. This was my first time seeing these whales all summer long. Once iconic Salish Sea regulars, their presence here is now far and few between as they struggle to find adequate prey to sustain themselves. These specialized fish hunters evolved to prefer chinook salmon, the largest and most calorie-rich salmon. Unfortunately, due to overfishing, pollution, hydroelectric dams, and habitat destruction, all five species of Pacific salmon are in severe decline, especially chinook salmon, resulting in a corresponding decline in this population of orcas I’ve known my whole life. Year by year I watch them die off one by one, starving to death and never returning with their families. My heart aches for her and her whole family as we continue to neglect our world’s ecosystems. I hope wherever they’ve been all summer they’ve been finding fat, healthy salmon to eat. Stay strong, kiddos. I love you all, and will keep fighting for you for as long as I have to. . . . #orca #killerwhale #southernresidentorcas #southernresidentkillerwhales #marinemammal #marinebio #cetacean #lpod #l91 #salishsea #nofishnoblackfish #sos #saveoursalmon #salmon #conservation #endangered #pnw #pacificnorthwest #washington

If you have bought a ticket to see enslaved dolphins then you are responsible for the continuing suffering of these beautiful mammals of the oceans. No intelligent human would think that it is right to capture, enslave, kill, and keep cetaceans in a tiny tank, split up from their families, witnessing the death of their families in a most cruel and horrific manner. If you have bought a ticket in the past or consider buying one in the future you also have blood on your hands.

This is very unfinished (I have the entire body left to do ) and I can't decide if I should blend the head more. I wanted to post something anyway since it's been a while. I plan on doing Inktober, I'm not going to stress about completing all the prompts but I am getting a headstart right now. I'm excited to be creative with it!

“Vaquitas” - The Vaquita is a species of porpoise that is on the brink of extinction. It’s the world’s smallest cetacean and lives entirely in the Gulf of California. While I had hoped that I would one day be able to see one, with only 10 to 15 remaining, this painting is about as close as I will ever come to seeing one. I had hoped that painting this might help others learn of the Vaquitas existence and help in preventing its extinction. .

It always pays to double check before deleting photos!!! I was re-examining some pictures from our August 26th Gulf of Alaska transient encounter. I thought I had a good tally on which whales were present and I ALMOST deleted this one, and I’m so glad I didn’t because it shows AT142 and her calf, AT184! I didn’t realize these two were with this group at the time. More data to input! 🤓 #orca #killerwhale #alaska #kachemakbay #homeralaska #whale #whalewatching #cetacean #blackfish #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #ocean #nature #sea #wildlife #marinemammal #biology

#Repost @archaeoprepona with @get_repost ・・・ Make sure to follow @archaeoprepona for more awesome dolphin facts and information, she is one of our research associates here at Gotham whale! Photo was taken by marine mammal observer and one of our naturalists @ackermancelia Bottlenose dolphins in the New York Bight are often shroud in these ectoparasites (Xenobalnus globicipitus ) which mask the features of the trailing edge of their fin. To identify these dolphins, we rely primarily on the features of notches, scars and the overall fin contour to match individuals and these little suckers make it tricky. There is also very little known about them. The general notion is that they cling to these animals (exclusively cetaceans - whales and dolphins ) to hitch a ride. Recent efforts have even distinguished habitat preference based on their occupancy on the dolphins. #themoreyouknow #mysteriesofectoparasites #ectoparasites #barnacles #newyorkbight #invertebrates #xenophobia #xenobalanusglobicipitus #dolphins #cetacean #research Photo by @ackermancelia @gothamwhale
