Happy Father’s Day! While its quite difficult to know Dad’s in the cetacean world, Migaloo is thought to have sired at least two offspring. A genetic sample is needed to confirm this, as well as all paternity in the whale world! Hope the human Dad’s out there have a great day!

Hey Storytellers! Did you know that we take #whaletales about any species? Being from Vancouver BC we are lucky enough to hear many many stories about the cetaceans in the #SalishSea but we have stories about Beaked Whales, Right Whales and even Blue Whales! Whatever #cetacean you saw, whenever or wherever you saw it, we would love to hear your whale tale!⠀

Humpback Whale females can reach up to 16 m, and weigh up to 30,000 kg!
The figure shows a size comparison of a 14 m long whale, and a 2 m tall human!

I hate how the stereotype is that dolphins are good and sharks are evil, when dolphins are so smart that they have the capacity for evil but sharks are simple fish who can only be true neutral, so even if a minority of dolphins are evil there are still more evil dolphins than sharks

quality marine philosophy discourse

I say this to every person who will listen

The reason why people love dolphins so much is because they have a better pr team while sharks have faced countless character assassinations over the years in the media. In this essay I will argue

We humans like dolphins more because they are mammals and they are pesky little smartass shits, just like us, scientists say.

“Everyone, I have an important announcement to make: CANNONBALL!“ 

No one is quite sure why humpback whales breach—but one leading theory suggests they may use their cacophonous splashes to communicate with other whales at a distance!

Sometimes whale moms are seen holding their calves close to the surface. They gently push them up and hold them there. That’s how they teach their baby how to be a whale and breathe.

Thinking of this never fails to make me smile.
