Mardi 8 janvier dernier, une tortue Caouanne a été capturée accidentellement dans un filet de pêche. Le pêcheur a aussitôt contacté l’ Association Marineland afin de faire intervenir les équipes du Centre de Réhabilitation de la Faune Sauvage. Après vérification du bon état de santé de l’animal par les vétérinaires de Marineland, la tortue a pu être remise à la mer ce dimanche. C'est donc à la plage des Ondes d'Antibes qu' Ambre a pu regagner son milieu naturel. Les températures de la Méditerranée risquant de baisser rapidement dans les prochaines semaines, il était important que Ambre rejoigne la mer rapidement. En effet, ces reptiles sont ectothermes, et leur activité métabolique dépend de la température de l’environnement dans lequel ils évoluent. Dans le cas de températures trop froides, les tortues marines peuvent être victimes d’hypothermie. C’est la raison pour laquelle, elles prennent l’habitude de migrer vers des zones plus chaudes pour passer la saison hivernale. Un grand merci aux pêcheurs des Alpes-Maritimes qui, par leur réactivité et leur précieuse collaboration, contribuent à la sauvegarde de cette espèce en danger. Merci également à @alexiasailingteam , navigatrice émérite en partenariat avec Marineland, d’être venue souhaiter « bon vent » à notre 7ème patiente du C.R.F.S au départ des Ondes.

ASSAULT ON SMALL CETACEANS - Dolphins, Porpoises, Orcas, Beaked Whales, Belugas, Narwhals, Pilot Whales, etc. are all under extreme threats from illegal and unregulated hunting across the oceans. Over 100,000 per year are hunted for bait to be used on long lines to catch sharks, for low-grade meat, and even for their teeth and bones to be turned into the tourist souvenirs. ‼️ These are some of the most intelligent, curious, and gentle ocean beings, yet we are senselessly and barbarically wiping them out. We must put a stop to this insanity. In the words of Gandhi, "the greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.” @bluespherefoundation and @sealegacy will be working hard this year to tackle this urgent issue. 🙏 📸 by @shawnheinrichs #oceanswildest
Lovely early morning Orca fact about their eyes 👁 to start the day. They have different coloured irises just like us, most commonly blue and brown 💙🖤from @whales_org #orcas #marinelife #whales #blackfish Repost @whales_org with @get_repost Over the next few weeks, we're going to be talking about the different senses! This week we're going to begin by talking about eyesight. Orcas have highly developed eyesight, both in and out of the water! Like humans, orcas' irises can be different colors, normally blue or brown. The curvature of their eyes can be changed in order to focus, letting them see clearly in and out of water. Orca's visibility underwater is often less than 160 feet (50 meters), worsening at night. Some researchers believe that orcas use their eyesight when "spy hopping" above the surface of the water to spot boats, find shoreline, and locate prey like sea lions. Other researchers believe that orcas spy hop to heat what is going on, not see what is going on, because many orcas don't raise their heads high enough to see clear over the water.

The Pod . . . One of two Pods that were circling our Whale Watch Vessel and swimming back and forth between some Fisher Boats nearby. I believe we traveled from Tromsø up North, close to Oldervik and went on the Lookout for some Blackfish and Humpback Whales who are in Season around January. The Orcas never entirely interfere with the Fishing Boats, but you can rest assured that where there is Fish, they will join in on the Hunt. On a Sidenote, I know my Photos from Tromso will not be my best Work, compared to Thailand I was much more reliant on the #automode because of the difficult Lighting Situation during Polar Nights. This has definetly shown me the Limits of my current Skills . . .

A moment of quiet on site as a breeze tumbles across the iconic landscape of East Point. This is the location where the first killer whales, Southern Residents, were ever captured in the 1960s. . . 📷 A behind-the-scenes snap of co-producer @selkiegoddess on site, repping our sustainable apparel partner @houdinisportswear 🤙 . .

I find myself thinking about this pod of eastern tropical Pacific orcas a lot lately. Last September was the first time they’d ever been seen in Newport, and I’m constantly wondering if they’ll ever come back. • • • • • • • • • • #newportbeach #orcas #ourlonelyplanet #stayandwander #depthsofearth #orangecounty #instagood10k #killerwhales #teamcanon #blackfish #canonphotography #whales #discoverocean #discover_earth

The Southern resident killer whales have a new baby that was born in December of 2018. They now have a population of 75 and are considered endangered. The calf's changes of survival are depleting every day for many reasons, one of the reasons is their lack of food source. The lower snake river dams have not been opened. despite protests, calls and letters to Congress encouraging them to open the dams. Because of this choice the salmon are not able to part take in their natural circle of life. Another issue is that humans are eating THEIR food sources. We don't need to eat fish to survive. The Orcas and other sea animals do. We are facing fishless oceans by 2048. This is a fact, don't take my word on it. Look it up for yourself. If the oceans die, we die. We are over fishing our oceans and why ? Because it's what the consumers are demanding. Every dollar we spend is casting a vote for how we want our future to be, not just for us but our kids. Do you think our children would be proud of us for destroying and polluting our oceans? Probably not. Make the connection. Leave all earthlings off your plate, the world is depending on us.
Love these amazing #orcas and pray this calf survives to become an adult #orca in the L pod. First baby that has survived longer than an hour after birth since 2015. #whales #whaleresearch #loveorcas #killerwhale

"Háhyrningur" - 2019 Háhyrningur is the Icelandic word for orca, meaning 'high horn' in reference to the tall male dorsal fin. Studies on Icelandic orca began in the 1980s in east Iceland, where the orca could be found following the Icelandic summer-spawning herring winter migration. There are around 400 individuals in the Icelandic ID catalogue, although the total population size is unknown. It has been suggested the Icelandic orca have a similar group structure to other fish-eating populations found around the world (highly complex, matrilinial, family groups), although this is based on very few sightings. The Icelandic orca produce a unique long, low-frequency call for herding herring and like the Shetland herring-eating orca, they use ultrasonic frequencies to produce whistles which are out of the range of human hearing. Five Icelandic orca have been sighted off the Shetland coast. . . . #killerwhale #orca #orcas #killerwhales #iceland #killerwhalephotography #wildlifephotography #wildlife #fineartphotography #fineart --
Kiska in August 2018. Last time I saw her and it was magical for me. Unfortunately she's alone, but she is the last one to remain in Marineland's pool. No more killer whales. Only wild. This is probably for the best. I just wish she wasn't on her own today. I love you so much my Canadian Friend. Stay strong ❤️🍉#killerwhale #orcas #orca #whale #dolphin #marineland #niagara #niagarafalls #canada #orque #epaulard #épaulard #orcinusorca #orcinus #park #ocean #kiska

Dolphin Island, Italy. -Sirenuse is a dolphin-shaped archipelago located just off Amalfi Coast in Southern Italy, between the Isle of Capri and the village of Positano. Also known as Li Galli, Sirenuse got its name after the Greek mythology’s Sirens who believed to have visited the islands frequently and tempted Ulysses on his way back home with their enchanting voices. Now, the island is filled with resorts and hotels and has become an ideal snorkeling site.

Our team is in Vancouver this week working with colleagues from the Center for Whale Research, Vancouver Aquarium, and SeaWorld to see what we can learn from skin disease in Southern Resident Killer Whales. Pictured here is L121 by the Center for Whale Research.
An awesome reason to celebrate today: This week, we welcome the newest member of the Southern Resident Killer whale family, a newborn baby orca! The young calf was first spotted late last week along with two more expecting more orcas from the K and J pod family. (Global News CA) Photo by @keimoritaphotography

Best news ever! The southern resident orcas have a calf in their pod 😍 ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ This is super important because I love orcas. They are wicked smart and make great cuddle buddies. I hope this little baby thrives 💪
We love helping you plan your adventures, but we especially love hearing about what a wonderful time you had whilst on them 😍
Here's the most unique humpback whale in the world . - Migaloo is said to be the first documented all-white humpback whale in the world . This whale is a male , and he might be 34 or 35 years old now . Scientists don't know if he is albino , but they concluded that he has very low pigment . #whales #humpback #ocean #sea #sand #sun #migaloo #unique #orcas #sharks #australia #cetacean #marinelife #deepseas #diving
Hey!!! Como vocês estão? Peço desculpa pelo sumiço, mas agora voltei e é pra ficar, porque aqui, aqui é meu lugar. 😂 E com uma super e linda indicação.... Este filme se encontra disponível na #Netflix , legendado, mas se você entende bem do espanhol, se joga! Atores lindos e que interpretaram muito bem seus papéis. Filme baseado num livro/fatos reais, de uma mãe desesperada para encontrar uma forma de ver seu filho autista feliz, esboçando reações. Depois de terem sido abandonados por aquele que deveria ficar ao lado deles. Mesmo que o autismo o colocasse apenas em seu mundo, ela percebeu que depois de uma entrevista vista na TV, ele esboçou uma reação positiva ao ver as orcas. E assim, eles partem em busca daquele homem e suas orcas. De início é um tanto difícil, mas depois é tão lindo. Nos ensina e nos faz refletir sobre a importância das pessoas e animais. Independente das suas condições psicológicas ou física. Gente, assistam... É um lindo filme... ❤️ PS: a foto na sequência é do livro qual fora adaptado! 😙 #netflix #autismo #faroldasorcas #lindo #adorei #filme #shippaessefilme #shippaesselivro #baseadoemlivro #historiareal #fotografia #tradição #cultura #mar #orcas #focas #areia #agua
