imata_trainers #repost @georgiaaquarium ・・・ could it possibly be #sweaterweather in georgia? while these cooler temperatures might have us reaching for our sweaters and scarves, #belugas are always donning a thick sweater, known as blubber! 🍂🍁

#repost @oceans_of_fun ・・・ moana is making friends! this week we have begun introducing her to her new poolmates. we began with sonoma and talise due to their gentleness with other animals. moana had not been with other sea lions for quite some time and while she showed signs of excitement, it's also a bit scary! this works much like a "playdate" allowing the animals together time and then alone time until moana builds confidence in the new relationships! #moanassecondchance

imata_trainers #repost @dolphin_quest ・・・ dolphin quest prides itself on being owned by veterinarians and founded with the purpose of furthering scientific study, education, and healthcare efforts for common bottlenose dolphins everywhere. this is an example of lehua’s very first voluntary blood draw at dolphin quest hawaii and it shows how our dolphins actively participate in their own healthcare. . . . . . . #dolphinquest #hawaii #bigisland #bigislandhawaii #welovedolphinseveryday

imata_trainers #repost @vanaqua ・・・ endangered #beluga rescue update: #vanaqua's marine mammal care team along with @mystic.aquarium @shedd_aquarium @georgiaaquarium and #seaworld experts are still on-site at @alaskasealifecenter helping with the rehabilitation of the rescued male beluga calf. the care team has found that letting him suckle from the tube rather than the bottle is the most effective method for him to get the nutrients he needs. currently he has graduated from the aminoplex to a milk matrix with fish and antibiotics added. #dreamteam
