75. That’s all that’s left. SEVENTY-FIVE ORCAS. Guess how many socks, bras and panties I have?!

Don't support their enslavement. Every time you buy a ticket for entertainment that involves any animal in captivity, you're contributing to their suffering. Animals are not ours to exploit. Period. Plus you'll stop looking like a complete ass gawking at these beautiful animals that don't deserve to be locked up and controlled for food by idiots. It's a win-win. ✌🏼️💜🙏🏼 ・・・ Repost @dolphin_project Release Me 🐬 . ・ ・ #orcas #dolphins #cetaceans #ocean #waves #oceanlife #marinelife #emptythetanks #seasidesanctuary #seapen #releaseme #dontbuyaticket #dolphinproject #weekendvibes #smart #art #heart #choosecompassion #empathy
Throwback to that #Orca sighting in the #Galapagos That’s me in the other panga btw #killerwhale #orcas
J17 "Princess Angeline" breaching near Sooke this morning. Almost the whole of J pod was breaching, spyhopping, tail-slapping, and pec-slapping as they made their way toward Victoria. Sometimes it seems like these social rituals are an indication of happiness or wellbeing, especially since we are seeing these energetic behaviours less and less and in increasingly shorter durations. With obly 75 members left, the residents can rarely afford to spend energy on anything other than the endless search for food.

The Hector’s dolphin is the most rare and smallest of all dolphin species. Their name comes from the Scottish scientist Sir James Hector who discovered them in the 1870’s and began researching them. These dolphins only grow to be about 3.5-4 feet long and can weigh between 88 and 110 pounds. In the case of these dolphins, the females are actually larger than the males. They have short and stubby beaks, more similar to that of a porpoise rather than a dolphin. The top and sides of their bodies are a light grey color, followed by a white underbelly, and a black dorsal and black eye patches. - The Hector’s dolphin can only found in the South Island of New Zealand and in a small portion of the North island. Their distribution is very limited as they prefer shallow coastal waters, no deeper than 300 feet. However, the Hector’s dolphin has a subspecies known as the Māui’s dolphin, which is critically endangered. This subspecies only inhabits the west coast of New Zealand’s North Island, which is an extremely small fraction of the Pacific Ocean. - In total, the Hector’s dolphin population is approximately 7,000, while the Māui’s dolphin is a mere 55. Hector’s dolphins live in small groups of 2-10 individuals. As for communication, they create clicking sounds to one another, oppose to the whistling sounds used by most other dolphins. When hunting, they submerge for approximately 90 seconds, trap the prey, then consume it. Their prey is almost always small squid and fish such as red cod, yellow horse mackerel, arrow squid, Ahuru fish, and kahawai. They have also been observed hunting crabs on the ocean bottom. - Caption: @cetaceanconservation Photo: RNZ

It has been the most exciting day already! The orcas came from the East this morning and are now in the strait. Other than orcas we had a lot of dolphin action and humpbacks coming by. .

So coolest/scariest thing to ever happen in my life happened yesterday. Me and my brother in law @akersevan were just fishing away on the ocean in a small 12ft dingy and we had just cast our first line out when all of a sudden I see a massive killer whale pass under our boat. All of a sudden we found ourselves surrounded by a whole pod of these whales, some of them surfacing literally 2ft from our dingy. Unfortunately we didn’t think to capture that moment because we were freaking out to much to even think to, but we caught the aftermath. Definitely one story I’ll never forget. #killerwhale #orcas #lundbc #oceanadventures #oceanfishing #fishingstory #theysparedourlives #thatllgettheheartpumping #olympicrower #foramoment

From our friends @dam_sense ・・・ General Semonite, the Chief of the USACE, is getting briefed each evening on how many calls are received about the lower Snake River dams. Be sure to ask for Alternative 4 from the 2002 EIS to be implemented immediately- a controlled hydraulic breach of the earthen bankment of Lower Granite and Little Goose starting in 2018- otherwise our calls may be mistaken for an endorsement for the CRSO/EIS that will not be ready for years to come. #dams #dam #orca #orcas #srkws #srkw #southernresidents #southernresidentkillerwhales #tahlequah #j35 #j50 #scarlet #salmon #chinook #chinooksalmon #saveoursalmon #breach #breachthedams #freethesnake #snakeriver #lowersnake #lowersnakeriver #lowersnakeriverdams #damsense

And this is what happens when you are with wild whales. All regulations of boating with whales were being followed, but they have a mind of their own. And this amazing whale wanted to come say hi. Hello Alaskan Resident!!! I had my big lens, a 150-600 mm, and couldn’t zoom out any more. Amazing!!! #whalewatching #salishwhales #whales #killerwhales #killerwhale #orcas #orca #oceanlife #marinelife #boatlife #alaska #sewardalaska #seward #surprise #alaskalife #pnwphotographer #pnwonderland #ilovewhales #ilovewildlife #wildlife #wildlifephotography #glacierwater #hobbyist #hobbyistphotographer #sunshine #perfectday #iwanttobeonaboat #happy #beautiful #beauty @majormarinetours

#Repost @oceanicpreservationsociety with @get_repost ・・・ Meet Dio, canine member of the team that’s working to help the ailing orca Scarlet (J-50). Dio is an ace sniffer dog, and his role is to direct the research vessel to where his colleagues can gather a sample of whale scat and take it back to the lab. From our friends at @whalesanctuaryproject : Researchers can glean amazing amounts of information from whale poop (what scientists call “fecal data”) – like what they’re eating, reproductive status, stress level, environmental toxin levels – about the health of an individual animal and of the pod overall. And to get a good diagnosis of what’s ailing Scarlet and what medication she might best respond to, they need a good sample of her droppings. But first they need to locate a fresh sample. And that’s Dio’s job. He’s everything you want in a sniffer dog and everything that a lot of people don’t want in a family pet: a dog who’s high-energy and obsessed with chasing after balls. Dogs like Dio often end up at a shelter, and it can be hard to place a rambunctious, ball-obsessed dog in a family home. In Dio’s case, he was a young, stray Queensland heeler mix with an injury to his jaw, who was picked up and brought to the Humboldt County Animal Shelter in northern California. The shelter staff despaired of being able to find him a home because of his off-the-wall high energy. But a volunteer realized that he would be a great sniffer dog, and in August 2015 he found himself on his way north to the University of Washington’s Center for Conservation Biology, where he joined the Conservation Canines Division. Dio is one of 17 dogs, eight handlers and five lab staff at Conservation Canines, who can be working on anything from tracking down herds of caribou, to establishing the range of a pocket mouse or a barred owl, to Dio’s current assignment locating whale scat.

There is nothing more beautiful than the sight of killer whales traveling together. The scenic view compliments this video perfectly. No marine park could ever top this. - Caption: @cetacean.inspiration Photo: @jennifersteven

We were fortune to have about 20 orcas swim by our camp just before breakfast one morning. Would have liked some proper photos but had to rely on my phone for these with my dsl still in the tent.

No animal deserves to be stuck in a concrete prison and forced to do tricks for our entertainment. Tell SeaWorld​ to send its orcas to a #SeaSideSanctuary !
