The symmetry of these killer whales, part of the a30 matriline is mesmerizing. watch how a space is left for the matriarch as she regains the lead position. this footage was taken off of caamano sound in gitga’at territory where a few short years ago an epic battle to stop oil pipelines and tankers was being waged. because of the massive public opposition and environmental threats associated with the project prime minister @justinpjtrudeau agreed to an oil tanker ban for the bc north coast and the #greatbearrainforest. this is the same prime minister that is now pushing to build new oil pipelines to vancouver that would dramatically increase tanker traffic, shipping noise and the ever present threat of an oil spill disaster. people here in #britishcolumbia are really shaking their heads about how one politician can be so opposed to oil pipelines and tankers on one half of our coast but a vocal cheerleader and proponent for them on the other half. what do you think? is the kinder morgan pipeline going to be stopped just like northern gateway? #kindermorgan #northerngateway #orca #killerwhales #worldwhaleday

Today is world whale day! 🌎 🐋
__
humpbacks are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the oceans. these sequences of sounds are complex and can continue for hours.
__
mothers and calves swim close together, often touching with their flippers. females nurse their calves for a year, but it takes much longer for a humpback whale to reach adulthood.

Honoring the #worldwildlifeday and belated #worldwhaleday with another clip from the sardine run.
we, expedition sff team (allen walker @awphotosa ; nicky bernhard; graham fenwick; rob shepard; emrah özgöktürk @akilayraci ; and me, bora mutlu) believe great mammals (whales and elephants) are sublime creatures; powerful by nature, but almost defenceless and helpless against hunters and poachers. help people, organizations devoted in this cause.

Killer new video: pew marine fellow regina eisert just caught these orcas "spyhopping" among antarctic ice. her "multimedia traps" are shedding light on the secret lives of dwarf orcas—and the ecosystem of the new ross sea region marine protected area. http://pew.org/2szejhr #worldwhaleday .

Observing humpback whales in the bay of fundy on a whale watching cruise from brier island. it’s amazing to see how powerful their tails are and how much water they can move. the bay of fundy is the summer feeding grounds for a large population of whales and also has the highest tides in the world. #brierislandwhaleandseabirdcruises #visitnovasvotia #discoverhalifax #atlanticcanada #explorenovascotia #novascotia #igers_novascotia #tlpicks #travelpics #imagesofcanada #exploretheworld #igtravel #outdoorlife #getoutside #humbbackwhale #whalewatching #whales #neverstopexploring #naturephotography #earthpix #naturegrampixels #naturegram #lpfanphoto #paradisecanada #outdoors #outdoorphotography #instanature #naturegram #ocean #naturelovers #worldwhaleday

In the inky depths she lays nose down resting from her long swim. she is gathering energy, preparing herself for what is about to happen. often heavily pregnant whales will sit stationary tail up in the water column i suppose preparing for birth. waiting by her side her escort friend is there to protect her and soon to be born baby. can you see the heart on the sea floor? 🖤 #canonaustralia #lightroom #protectwhatyoulove #kingdomoftonga #underwaterphotography #underwater #underwaterphotographer #underwater_world #humpback #ocean #love #water #blue #coffeetime #dream #worldwhaleday

The southern right whale is the great protagonist of patagonian whale watching. the point is that in the winter and when the spring comes, a large number of whales approach the valdés peninsula region, mainly golfo san josé and golfo nuevo, in the province of #chubut.

whale watching has been practiced in this area for almost 40 years. the first tours were organized in the 1970s, when some ships that sailed around the peninsula noticed that the whales approached them with curiosity and, as they sensed the presence of man, they performed jumps and even swam in circles around the watercrafts.

today, the situation is exactly the same, but the passing of time, the appearance and institutionalization of whale watching, the scientific contribution to make a correct interpretation of their behavior and habits and, especially, the constant presence of these goddesses in the ocean have turned the southern right whale into an argentinian and patagonian passion.

gracias @avistajespekesosa

when a whale breaches, its body leaves the water. some likely theories are that breaching occurs in competitive displays between males. others suggest it may be a warning for perceived threats, such as predators, or even unwanted attention from vessels.

another theory is that breaching may be a form of communicating over great distances; the acoustic signal of a whale breaching can be intense and, as sound travels faster in water than air, it can be a quick way to transmit information such as location and size.

it has been suggested that it may be a technique to stun or scare prey, ultimately helping them feed.

all in all, whales most likely do not breach for any single reason – rather they likely breach for a variety of reasons, which help them communicate, deter threats, successfully forage and mate, and in general help them survive in their very dynamic world under water. .

I am very passionate about nature and the underwater life. every day we see the vulnerability of our ocean and the animals, and the impact tourism can leave on the environment.
respect our nature and enjoy it. 💪

Сегодня международный день китов и дельфинов. И этим постом я хочу привлечь внимание к проекту @dolphinology.ru Многие знают, что я была в экспедиции посвящённой наблюдению за дельфинами. Пока яхта бороздила морские просторы, мы на палубе поочерёдно стояли вахты весь день, вели детальные проколы о встречах с дельфинами и радовались каждому плавнику. Собранные материалы помогают не просто изучать животных, поведение в их среде обитания, но используются на природоохранных конференциях. И чем больше таких данных, тем больше шансов решить проблему с уменьшением популяции этих животных в Чёрном море.
То сколько счастья подарила мне эта поездка, одним благодарственным постом не покроешь. Я буду ещё помогать проекту. А вам если тоже хочется под парусом закаты и дельфинов смотреть пишите @dolphinology.ru или мне, я все расскажу.
Ну и как модные блогеры пишут в конце про спонсоров, я пишу спасибо @yan_te за gopro, на которую мне удалось снять эти кадры под водой. @luvetau, которая способствовала всей поездке и без устали фотографировала, @whalecub за любовь к дельфинам и вообще за тебя и проект, @maximilian_ya за капитанство, попытки учить яхтенному делу и за тех двух ночных дельфинов и сказочное продолжение, и, конечно, спасибо самой лучше команде @dama_del_muerte, @alexandra_stu и другим. Ну и @nu__store 😘
