Both new calves have been named! Say hello to L124 “Whistle” and J56 “Tofino”! - L124 “Whistle” was named for the whistling vocalizations the Southern Residents use. Whether there is a special purpose for the whistling sounds is not known. However, whistles are used during social interactions and in short-range communication. - Whistle was born in December 2018 and was first seen during a livestream of TV stations in Seattle. They aired live aerial footage of several groups of killer whales in Puget Sound and viewers were able to see a very small calf among them. During this livestream it became clear that the calf’s mother was L77 “Matia” (b. 1987 )! - J56 “Tofino” was named after the place she was first seen. On May 30, 2019, whale watchers encountered J Pod near Tofino and noticed a very tiny new calf with them! The calf still had fetal folds on its side and the Center for Whale Research estimated that she was born just a few days earlier on May 24th. - On July 5th, the Center for Whale Research had their first encounter with the new calf and were able to confirm that the mother was J31 “Tsuchi” (b. 1995 )! They were also able to get a clear view of her genital markings and announced that Tofino is a female! - J56 has also been given a First Nations name, N̓ačiqs (Na-chi-cks ) which means Tofino. - Now that both calves have received names they are available for adoption via the Whale Museum! - Photo of L124 “Whistle” by @brendonbissonnette Photo of J56 “Tofino” by Dave Ellifrit

▪️Quando você olha essas baleias através do vidro, vê uma criatura grande e majestosa nadando, possivelmente olhando diretamente para você. Você sorri, acena e tira uma foto para reviver o momento. Quando as baleias nos vêem, tudo o que conseguem ver é alguém parcialmente responsável pelo inferno que enfrentam. E não há necessidade de uma foto reviver o momento, eles são forçados a viver todos os dias. Todo mundo ama sua liberdade, por favor, não apoie lugares que tirem a liberdade de viver. ▶️ Repost 👇👇 de. . https://www.facebook.com/shutdown.seaworld/ #DontBuyATicket #ShutDownMarineland #CaptivityKills #ThanksButNoTanks #betheirvoice #captivityiscruelty #boycottseaworld #fuckseaworld #emptythetanks #captivity #beluga #dolphins #dolphin #whale #whales #savethewhales #orca #orcas #turtle #turtles #noplastic #peace #life #earth #planet #death #sos #seal #freedom

Photo by @PaulNicklen | If you're traveling on the open ocean near British Columbia, there are three types of orca you might encounter. There are the Southern Resident killer whales which have historically depended on Chinook salmon stocks on the Pacific Coast for their survival, there are transients which live on a diet dependent on mammals like seals and sea lions, and there are the offshore orcas. These orcas have the widest range, traveling as far north as the Bering Sea off the coast of Alaska and as far south as California - and who knows how far beyond that. I am humbled each time I have the chance to witness these majestic animals when the waters of BC are glassy, calm and reflecting the colors of the morning sky on its surface. To witness the power, grace and intelligence of these apex predators in the wild fills me with peace and awe each time. Follow me @PaulNicklen if you want to hear more about what it's like to be in the water and look an orca in the eye. #orcas #blackfish #nature #wildlifephotography #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotograpy #wildlife_perfection #wildlife #wildlife_supreme #wildlifeaddicts #wildlifeperfection #majestic_wildlife_ #natgeopix #wildlifepictures

I make it a point to do some research on whatever I’m drawing—so tonight I learned that kelp forests encourage a greater variety of plant and animal life than almost any other oceanic habitat. But the most interesting thing I discovered is that the bulb-like part along the stem is called an air bladder, and it acts like a balloon to help the leaves rise up towards the water’s surface so they can get sunlight, which it needs to make its food. Passing by so much kelp along the coast, I’ve always wondered what that was all about. Can’t wait to see some again, this time with a greater appreciation.

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

Experimenting in illustrator CC. Struggle, but a little fun! Especially when I have a clear vision with this design; Conserve the nature and minimise the animal extinction. Today 36 % of the Earth’s land is inhabited by humans, 60% by livestock and only 4% of wild animals.

"I'll be a tidal wave, When I grow up, crashing on harbours. I'll be a temperamental element, a raging water. I'll be a perfect storm, swallowing over. I'll be a killer whale, when I grow up. I'll be a monster" - Wintersleep . I've always had an odd bond with the ocean, and Orcas. They've always been intriguing to me. The ocean is my home. My happy place. Where I find the most peace. . Fun fact: Orcas (also called Killer Whales ) are actually part of the dolphin family. Not actually whales. 🐬 . . #orca #wintersleep #orcas #dolphin #killerwhales #ocean #harbour #peace #calm #spiritanimal #home

#Orcas 🐳🐋🌊🌊🌊 Pueden medir 9 metros de largo y suelen cazar en grupos (6-40 ). Los machos tienen esperanza de vida entre 50 y 60 años, por su parte las hembras llegan a vivir 90 años en libertad. Su periodo de gestación es entre 16-17 meses. Antes de devorar a sus presas juegan con ellas para enseñarles a sus crías el arte de cazar.
