Perhaps Split Fluke (BCX1068) was saying goodbye to the Salish Sea as she gets ready to head south to the breeding grounds. Perhaps she was itchy from all those barnacles attached to her. Or maybe she was just having fun. Dec 4, Brendon Bissonnette Photography @brendonbissonnette

A closer look at the seaworld SHUT DOWN! (Bonus Punk Points 😀 "why don't you get a life instead of frightening children" Nah Lady why do HIDE EDUCATION from your child?!) From @earthlove777 From ➡ @warriorforanimals   I've just disrupted the dolphin show at Sea World on the Gold Coast with Justice For Captives. 👀 The show has now been cancelled and the stadium evacuated following this protest. 👀 Sea World on the Gold Coast breeds dolphins into captivity for cruel circus shows that include dolphin trainers riding dolphins. If Sea World cared about animals, they wouldn't breed them in pools or use them for human entertainment. It's all about exploiting animals to make money. Great work team. We will never stop fighting until they are free. 🐬❤️ #EmptyTheTanks  #BoycottSeaWorld #dolphinshow  #orca  #govegan  #orcas  #wildlife #whale  #whales  #humpback  #humpbackwhale #humpbackwhales  #dolphin  #dolphins  #blackfish #seaworldsucks  #savethewhales #swimmingwithdolphins  #taiji  #seasanctuary #saveourocean  #whaling  #whalewatching #stopseperatingfamilies  #pollution  #extinction #donttakeourplanetforgranted
😞 Rp @inherentlywild Unnatural Diet . Orcas are the ocean’s top predators, capable of killing anything from fish to birds and sharks to baleen whales. Different ecotypes and populations are often highly specialised to hunt their own culturally desired prey. For example, three distinct ecotypes have been identified by studying orca populations in the eastern north Pacific Ocean: resident killer whales feed on fish, transient killer whales feed on marine mammals and offshore killer whales feed on fish and sharks. Furthermore, killer whales have developed sophisticated hunting techniques, many of which co-operative, to successfully prey on more than 140 species of animals worldwide. . In their wild habitat, orcas spend between 65% to 90% of daylight hours foraging and hunting for food. However, in captivity, orcas are stripped of the ability to forage and given no opportunity to hunt live prey. Instead, they are hand fed a diet of frozen fish which has a lower water content than fresh fish due to freezing and thawing processes, leading to chronic dehydration. Worst still, the dietary differences between different ecotypes and populations are completely disregarded in captivity with even mammal-eating killer whales forced to consume a diet of fish, something that is completely unnatural to them in the wild. . One of the causes for dorsal fin collapse (also known as flaccid fin syndrome) is linked to dehydration. Collagen, the structural protein the dorsal fin consists of, requires water to maintain its rigid structure, therefore, dehydration will weaken the structure causing the dorsal fin to collapse. To counteract the lower water content diet, captive orcas are given ice and gelatine (a substance that is not natural to them) in an attempt to keep them hydrated. Tilikum, who weighed 12,000 lbs, consumed 83 lbs of gelatine a day prior to his death in January 2017. .

Milujeme oceán🌊 a právě potápění a všechen podmořský život nás donutil k tomu, se zamyslet nad plastem, jeho užíváním a také znečištěním, které způsobuje. To, že vyhodíme odpadky neznamená, že plasty zmizí. Zmizí nám akorát z očí. Naopak, často se dostanou do řek, moří a oceánů a právě tam tropí opravdovou škodu. Velryby žijí na naší planetě déle než my a je opravdu smutné, že často umírají právě kvůli nám. V předvánočním úklidu děláme také pořádek ve fotografiích z cest. Tyto nádherné keporkaky jsme viděly nad vodou i pod vodou v krasném Mozambiku. A co vy? Také milujete velryby?🐳❤️ ————- We are ocean lovers🌊 Its diving and marine wildlife which made us think more about plastic polution. Trash we are daily throwing away does not really go away. There is simply no away #thereisnoaway In fact it goes to the rivers, seas and oceans where it often has a devastating effect on marine wildlife. Whales have been on this planet longer then us and is truly heartbreaking seeing them dying because of us. Look at the pictures of humpback whales we had a pleasure to see and dive with im Mozambique this summer. What a beauty, huh? —— #love #naturephotography #ocean #oceanlover #whale #humpbackwhale #filterfeeder #marinewildlife #mozambique #tofobeach #summertime #reducereuserecycle #reduceplastic #plasticpollution #beatplasticpollution #zerowaste #lowwaste #lowaste #scubadiving #potapeni #velryba #plasticfree #mozambik #odpadky #more #thereisnoplanetb #neplastuj #straw #itsnotjuststrawsthough

Would you just look at that fluke? 😍🐳🌊 . Seeing dozens of playful bottlenose dolphins and then, as dusk was falling, this mother humpback whale and her baby was definitely the highlight of our time in #LongBeach ! . #whale #whalewatching #humpbackwhale #humpback #fluke #whales #harborbreezecruises #longbeachcalifornia #cali #california #visitcalifornia #wildlife #marinelife #ocean #waves #travellife #travelblogger #instatravel #nofilter #picoftheday #photooftheday

Caught in the blow. Did you know that the spray/blow produced by cetaceans (whales and dolphins) is not sea water as often thought but is actually due to a difference in temperature which causes the air being breathed out to turn to water vapour. . . . #whale #whales #humpback #humpbackwhales #humpbackwhale #ceteceans #marinemammals #spray #blow #blowhole #vapour #condensation #wildlife #sea #sealife #seacreatures #ocean #whalewatching #whalewatch #pugetsound #pugetsoundexpress #pacificnorthwest #sanjuanislands #seattle #edmonds #washingtonstate #usa #closeup #nikon #nikond3400
"My team good, we don't really need a mascot.”🎶 . 3.5 hours into our boat ride and we had only seen two pods of dolphins. I wasn’t disappointed. Spotting a whale is never guaranteed in our vast ocean. We were ready to head back to the dock when captain Ryan peeked through his binoculars. He spotted two humpbacks a few miles west of us. 20 minutes passed and I was flying over these beauts. They were moving at a rapid pace and my eyes were glued to my screen. If I looked away, even for a second, it was easy to lose track of them. .

Whale, hello there! Did you know Virginia had a #whalewatching season? Guess a beach vacation in the winter isn't such a bad idea. 💁 @visitvabeach #LoveVA #VAoutdoors #humpbackwhale

I’m missing hanging out with these three bull humpback whales. They spent a lot of the summer hunting together. Chances are they are down in Hawaii on less friendly terms fighting over the ladies. 😵🥊🐋 . . . #whale #whales #humpbackwhale #humpback #humpbackwhales #humpbacks #whalewatchingtour #whalewatch #whalewatching #whaletail #whaletails #alaska #alaskan #alaskancruise #cruisealaska #cruisenorwegian #localtips #marinemammals #princesscruises #carnivalcruise #carnivalvista #ncl #cruisenorwegian #uncruise #vikingcruises

What a beautiful picture by @davidp.robinson 📸
A playful baby humpback whale passes by, rolling onto its back, belly up towards the light while its mother rests below. Every winter the south pacific population of humpback whales travels from Antarctica to Tonga and its neighboring islands to socialize, sing, and raise their new born calves, the next generation of humpbacks. They are curious, social animals that will often interact with other species, including humans.
What a beauty!!! 😍 #humpbackwhale #Antarctica
The most gentle giants of the great oceans! 😍 #humpbackwhale #Antarctica They were so unexpectedly numerous 😱😱😱 they were everywhere feeding on these rich waters afyer their migration from the tropics ❤
