The southern residents need help THIS year. We are witnessing an extinction. We can’t sit around and do nothing. Call @govinslee and tell him to breach the lower four snake river dams. These dams are NOT beneficial to anyone. I don’t want to see these beautiful animals disappear.

The one that got away. This VERY lucky sealion was able to hold onto his precarious perch despite large swells washing entirely over this reef while a hungry pod of transient orcas swam past! #Ahousaht #ahousat #tofino #yourtofino #explorebc #explorecanada #explorevancouverisland #sharevi #sharecangeo #nature_captures #nature_perfection #pnw #pnwcollective #water_captures #water_perfection #landscape_captures #sky #sunset #animal_captures #wildlife #orca #killerwhale #cetacean

I couldn’t ignore #inktober this year! Since I was gone for so much of it, I’m gonna do it a little differently: a lot of small studies leading up to a bigger ink piece. So this is study 1: form & figure.
Ring the bell if you see a whale. No whales for us. But one day.

#tinytuesday Here are two tiny cetacean teeth found in Aurora, NC on October 6th. There are a wide variety of small whales and dolphins that haven't been thoroughly studied from this location since there are so few complete or near complete specimens found. *Measurement in cm. #ampaleo #citizenscience #fossil #dolphin #whale #cetacean #tooth #teeth #ancient #ocean #paleo #paleontology #notjustsharkteeth #photography #aurora #nc #northcarolina #idigit @aurorafossilmuseum

Dispersal, the act of leaving ones natal group (family) or natal geographic range, is commonplace in mammalian society. In most cases, males leave their family group and females tend to stay. Killer whales, however, display what is known as extreme natal philopatry. Natal philopatry is the opposite of dispersal: an individual remains with their natal group or natal range for all or most of its life. It is highly unusual for males and females in a group to both display natal philopatry, but that’s exactly what killer whales do! Both sexes benefit from staying with their families due to kin selection. Highly related individuals are more likely to display acts of altruism towards one another than towards immigrants in a group. Why? Helping out a relative means they are more likely to reproduce, and because they share your genes, some of your genes are indirectly being passed on through them. After all, reproduction is the driver of many animal behaviors, even if it doesn’t seem obvious! #orca #killerwhale #alaska #kachemakbay #homeralaska #whale #whalewatching #cetacean #blackfish #seaworldsucks #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #ocean #nature #sea #wildlife #marinemammal #biology
Hola Pilot Whales! Pilot Whales get their name as their pods are believed to be 'piloted' by a leader. These guys are the short finned species, often seen in warmer waters than their long finned friends. You can see their dorsal fins in this clip. These fins are similar to a human fingerprint whereby they're unique to each individual because of their shape and any marks and notches; these can be used to identify and build a catalogue of the whales. 🐋 🐋 🐋 🐋 #lindaroseslens #nature #beautiful #photography #naturephotography #instanature #naturalworld #planetearth #cetacean #pilotwhale #pilotwhales #tenerife

📸 Taima June 25, 2004 SeaWorld Orlando Orlando, Florida Konica Minolta DiMAGE Z2 • Did you know? The striking black and white markings on a Killer Whale are a type of camouflage known as counter-shading. When looking down on their black back from above, they blend in with the dark water. Their white belly blends in with the sunlight when viewed from below. • Copyright © Amanda Marie Photography. All rights reserved.

Rare Bowhead Whales in the Hornsund fjord, back in September. These whales were hunted to the brink of extinction. While other populations have recovered, the Svalbard population is still critical and very few are observed every year.

There's a bit of blue sky breaking over the common. And a blue whale emerging. All the chaos, the excitement, the questions, the instability, the unknowing, the wonder, the frustration, the wide-eyedness, the gratitude, the exhaustion that this time has embodied is somehow held in strength and stillness. #whale #skywhale #cetacean #ocean #marine #wild #sea #earth #elemental #originalart #drawing #illustration #ink #inked #penandink #original #wholeness #meditation #wonder #nature #natureconnection #bluewhale #attic @pegasusartshop
Sandy, circa 1974. Images via Orca home page. - "Sandy" was a 10 year-old orca, she was taken in to the Seattle Marine Aquarium after stranding on a Washington beach, in 1973, later that year she was sent to SeaWorld San Diego. On October 22, she passed away from a cerebral Hemorrhage. #dolphin #dolphins #cetacean #cetaceans #whale #whales #orca #orcas #blackfish #instagood #beautiful #photo #animal #conservation #nature #love #sea #ocean #marinelife #marinebiology #captivitykills #emptythetanks #seaworldcares #seaworld #sandy #anticap #procap

witnessed a couple dolphins playing at Folly (swam out but no pictures :( ) then the next day encountered this beauty twice right at the launch spot of Shem Creek! Seeing a dolphin a day keeps the blues away if you ask me.🐬♥️🐬 • • • • • • #dolphin #cetacean #shemcreek #charleston #sc #southcarolina #sup #standuppaddle #standuppaddleboarding #allgoodthingsarewildandfree #adolphinadaykeepsthebluesaway
One thing that I'm 100% sure of is that dolphins do not belong in captivity. I'll never feel that it's ok to keep these amazing animals confined in concrete tanks solely for the purpose of human entertainment. . . #whalewatching #dolphinwatching #gloucester #capeann #boston #gulfofmaine #newengland #newenglandwildlife #dolphins #dolphin #fish #commondolphins #commondolphin #naturephotography #nature #natureig #ignature #igwildlife #wildlifeig #cetacean #mynature #naturephotographer #wildlifephotographer #wildandfree #captivitysucks #drainthetanks #🐟 #🐬
#Losapeviche c'è un pesce che scolpisce sulla sabbia per amore? È il torquigener, una specie di pesce palla autore di vere e proprie "architetture" sul fondo degli oceani. Con il suo corpo crea dune e avvallamenti sulla sabbia che vanno a formare un nido, costruito per attirare l'attenzione della femmina. Se questa rimane impressionata dalla sua opera, depone le uova al centro del nido. Questo lavoro meticoloso richiede al pesce palla maschio ben dieci giorni, e comprende non solo la costruzione dell'architettura, ma anche la sua decorazione, costituita da disegni irregolari nella parte più interna del cerchio e da conchiglie e frammenti di corallo sulle collinette più esterne. . . . . #animal #animali #marineanimals #animalprint #nature #petoftheday #animalimarini #mare #animalsofinstagram #natura #ilovenature #animales #seaanimals #ocean #animallovers #animalface #animallover #oceano #ambiente #sea #cetacean #seacreature #marinelife
What's it like to share the marine realm with the largest creature to have ever lived? To find out you'll have to watch the latest episode of Timor-Leste from Below on @sz.tv... Every year blue whales migrate to feeding grounds off Indonesia, passing right by the harbour of Dili, Timor-Leste, en route. The fact they are on a mission doesn't make it easy to get photos of them and this was the closest I could get after two weeks on the water. The buzz, however, was quite unlike anything I've ever experienced. I hope you all enjoyed the series which has now come to a close.

#NetMassimo #biology #genetics #cetacean #cetaceans #GrayWhale #GrayWhales An article published in the journal "Biology Letters" describes a genetic research on the gray whale populations that live in the western and eastern Pacific Ocean to look for clues that help understand the disparity of their populations. Pofessor Andrew DeWoody of Purdue University and his collaborator, postdoctoral researcher Anna Brüniche-Olsen, compared the DNA of 77 western gray whales and eastern 135 gray whales and discovered a genetic divergence between the two populations, however there are some interbreedings and genetic diversity that offers hopes for their future.

Maiacetus Inuus ("mother whale") is a genus of early middle Eocene (ca. 47.5 mya) cetacean from Pakistan. Maiacetus had four legs modified for foot-powered swimming, but although these whales could support their weight on flipper-like limbs, they probably couldn't travel far on land.
