Kiska showing signs of being VERY underweight, note the incredibly abnormal depression behind her blowhole. This photo was taken TODAY. But, don’t worry, because according to certain Marineland worshipers, she’s just fine. She’s DYING.

thats incredibly abnormal. :/


This doesn’t even look right. Take a look through google of wild orcas people. Compare this picture of poor kiska to a pic of a wild orca. You’ll not see this unless the orca is very sick!!! This is so incredibly sad

Such a beautiful trip today. Unfortunately, there were no orcas to be found this time. Looks like those sneaky buggers are going to keep me running around for another year! I was disappointed that I didn’t see any, but that’s the beauty of whale watching. You just never know what you’re going to see. Plus, they’re wild animals. They have their own things to do and I do not have a right to see them, regardless of how much I might want to. 

But there were other cetaceans! Multiple groups of Dall’s porpoises stopped by to swim in the pressure wave of our boat, but today they simply weren’t as playful as the usually are. They stuck around for maybe a minute at a time before taking off. It looked like they were busy hunting fish. 

The real stars of today’s trip were the humpback whales. I saw a total of three today; one lone whale, and a mother and calf pair. The lone humpback was quite shy and avoided the boat, so we quickly left him alone. Soon after that we came across the mother and calf, who were much more approachable. My absolute favorite part was when they lifted their flukes in the air. Today was the first time I’ve ever seen a whale tail in person! We stuck with them for about 10 minutes before the captain decided it was time to give them some space. 

I threw in a photo of Barwell Island, mostly because I’ve always been intrigued by it for some reason. It’s a beautiful island, with some interesting WWII history as well. Plus, beyond that island is nothing but the open ocean and Gulf of Alaska. Once you go beyond Barwell Island you won’t stop until you hit Hawaii!

And to make the day even better, there was a gorgeous rainbow on the drive home. 

Today was simply a great day.

Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

i-love-orcas:

On Wednesday, July 16, Rep. Adam Schiff spoke on the House floor about the need to end killer whale captivity.

"I believe it’s time to phase out killer whale captivity. That means no more captive breeding, no more wild captures. Orcas held in captivity now should live out their lives in their current habitats, if they cannot likely survive in the wild. But with the death of this generation of captive orcas, we should draw a line. No more confinement in tiny tanks. No more forced social structures. No more captivity for our entertainment.

"High mortality rates, aberrant behavior among orcas, the consistent collapsed dorsal fins, and the tragic deaths of the trainers themselves all point in the same direction — an end to the forced captivity of these majestic creatures."
