The brown pelican is a common seabird found throughout the americas and is an iconic symbol of the gulf of mexico, the basin with the largest population of this species. the brown pelican’s body is of course brown, but the head coloration is somewhat variable – often including red, yellow, orange, or white.

Mile-long drift gillnets snare, injure and k**l large migratory ocean animals, including bottlenose dolphins, endangered fin whales and leatherback sea turtles. buoy gear is proven to reduce bycatch while still effectively targeting swordfish off the west coast. we must act fast to take advantage of this opportunity to phase out #california swordfish drift gillnets once and for all. follow the link in our bio to tell your senator to support s. 2773 to end the use of drift gillnets in waters off california and protect at-risk species from being killed.

Right now, secretary zinke and president #trump are working to allow dangerous offshore drilling in the arctic’s beaufort sea. we can’t allow them to destroy vital protections for the arctic ocean and the belugas that depend on it. with the may 30 comment deadline approaching fast, we desperately need 50,000 of you to submit a comment so the government knows we’re watching – can you add your voice now? do so by following the link in our bio.

Do you wanna build a snowman? this little polar bear looks like it's ready to! one of the polar bear's adaptations is the very large size of its feet, useful for walking across snow and for swimming. adult male polar bears reach weights over 1500 pounds!

Hourglass dolphins swim where few other cetaceans go, in the cold waters surrounding antarctica. this species will frequent waters as cold as -0.3 degrees celsius, or about 31 degrees fahrenheit.

"i can do it, mom! i can adventure on my own!" swipe โฉ to see this least tern chick make big strides! least tern chicks leave their nest a few days after hatching and can fly at around 19-20 days old, though they may remain with their parents from another 2-3 months. #seabirdsaturday .
