Happy #WorldWhaleDay!!! I'm out looking for grey whales off the Pacific coast and hoping my @pawsbytheocean
Whale bandanna brings me good luck.
💗🐳🐋🐳💗
This day of celebrating whales began in Maui in honor of the humpback whales that swim off the coast. But whales are found across the world's oceans, in all climates, and even at great depths!
🌊
When hunting squid, a sperm whale may spend as much as an hour on a dive to more than 3,000 feet, where the temperature hovers at 36 degrees F and the pressure is more than 1,400 pounds per square inch. Impressive, but not if you happen to be a Cuvier’s beaked whale—scientists recently observed one diving to about 10,000 feet (nearly two miles) and staying under for 138 minutes, a record for both length and depth.
🦑💦
Do you have a favorite whale or whale factoid? Let me know in the comments!

Volunteers with Save Coastal Wildlife were conducting a population survey of seals in Sandy Hook Bay, NJ today. 136 Harbor Seals and 1 Grey seal were counted. Much appreciation to the dozen volunteers with Save Coastal Wildlife who did a fantastic job counting seals and identity species, sex and age. #citizenscientists #citizenscience #sealsofinstagram #sealsurvey #sandyhookbay #marinemammals #marinemammal #marinemammalsrock #savecoastalwildlife #wildlifeprotection #wildlifeconservation #volunteerspirit #volunteering #volunteersrock

Since it’s world whale day I decided to post something about the southern residents. As a majority may know about the plight of the southern residents, some people may not know how to help, or, what they are facing.
Although no one can say for sure what is causing the decrease in the SRKW’s, researchers agree that the following issues are likely factors:
-
Vessel traffic and noise: J, L and K pods are exposed to some of the highest levels of vessel traffic and noise of any whales in the world.
-
Pollution: Researchers have determined that the Southern Residents are among the most contaminated animals on Earth.
-
Food Decline/availability of prey: Sixteen salmon stocks have been listed as threatened or endangered under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. Salmon are the primary source of food for the southern resident Community. -
Low Population Size: Researchers say that when populations reach critically low levels, they may never rebound. The population has reached  drastically low levels to the point were only 75 killer whales are left within the population, and inbreeding has started to occur.
-
The challenges the SRKW’s are vastly complicated and sometimes have a political involvement. Here are some things that you could to do help the SRKW’s:
Consume little to no salmon as possible, this includes both wild-caught and farmed salmon. When there is less of a demand for salmon, less will be caught and the whales will have more to rely on for nourishment.
-
Try to cut out or if not reduce the amount of harmful products and use more natural ones. A majority of household cleaners people tend to use on a day to day basis contain toxic chemicals that can get into groundwater and find their way into the ocean.

I believe I have managed to work out more of AP pod’s family relationships. After reviewing photos from 2017 and 2018, I noticed that AP19, AP7, and AP7’s new calf are almost always in close proximity to one another. AP19 appears to be 6-7 years old, and AP7’s newest calf is now a little over a year old. This makes them the right age to be siblings! Of course, it it impossible to confirm this without DNA testing, but association levels are a good way to infer which whales are closely related. #orca #killerwhale #alaska #kachemakbay #homeralaska #whale #whalewatching #cetacean #blackfish #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #ocean #nature #sea #wildlife #marinemammal #biology

No Escape. During breeding season, male elephant seals defend and attempt to increase the size of their harem. This female elephant seal moved away from the group and was chased across the beach and forcibly subdued. The marks on his neck are battle scars from other males. .

Today is #worldwhaleday 🐳 so please take a spare moment to think about whales, their polluted ocean habitat, and how they are sadly still hunted. These are smart and majestic animals. I love all sorts of #seacreatures and have always had a great #respect for the #ocean 🌊 so this is a different kind of post to my usual stuff but I hope you guys don't mind.

And Now for Something Completely Different! Snorkelling with West Indian Manatees (Trichechus manatus) in the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge in Florida, USA with Janie Wray from the North Coast Cetacean Society (www.BCWhales.org). These most gentle sirenians move from the sea when the water temperature drops below 21 degrees Celsius into the Florida springs which present a permanent temperature of 21 degrees. The cold weather earlier this week dropped the Gulf temperatures and hundreds of Manatees came to the warmer waters in the spring refuges. This Manatee was a perfect Valentine date :-)

Sea Otter, Seward, Alaska

And my first wild Sea Otter! I've seen these wee guys in captivity but it took a trip to Alaska in 2011 to witness them in the wild. They are an incredibly well adapted species to their environment and often have quite entertaining characters.

How's Mo doing you're asking? Well, from the looks of it, she's handling the miserable weather like the rest of us. For these pictures she briefly dragged herself from her heating pad to the pool — in anticipation of lunch — before quickly returning to her favourite resting spot. She's doing well, though, maintaining a healthy appetite and gaining weight. #weatheringthesnow

Happy #worldwhaleday! Did you know globally there are 88 species of marine mammals and in New Zealand we have 44 of those species living in or passing through our waters! For a small country in the corner of the world we are  incredibly privileged to have so much marine life  close by.
