Seal leaps aboard fishing boat during desperate attempt to elude killer whales

Mote offers several tips for making stranded dolphins more comfortable before rescuers arrive.
• Do not push the animal back into the water - this is illegal and will prevent the animal from receiving proper care.
• Make sure water and weather conditions are safe before proceeding.
• If safe to do so, you can stabilize the dolphin by holding it upright so that its blowhole is above water.
• If the dolphin is beached, make the dolphin more comfortable by digging holes in the sand for its front flippers then roll the animal upright.
• While waiting for the stranding team, protect the dolphin from overheating and sunburn by keeping the animal wet and providing shade. Avoid getting water into the animal's blowhole.
• To avoid injury, stay clear of the mouth and tail and observe the animal from a safe distance until experts arrive.
• Keep children and pets at a safe distance and try to avoid startling the animal.
So long, and thanks for all the fish: Human dolphin communication is one
Thanks William..for share link..
Remember this news article that was posted on Care2 about a grey whale that got entangled in a fishing line? People tried to set it free, marked it with buoys but then could not find it again later? This was back in mid-April.
Well, a fisherman ran across it and set it free. At last.

Some Gulf Dolphins Severely Ill After Gulf Oil Spill
ScienceDaily (Mar. 26, 2012) — Bottlenose dolphins in Barataria Bay, Louisiana, are showing signs of severe ill health, according to NOAA marine mammal biologists and their local, state, federal and other research
Hi Katrine..welcome and feel glad you here..
thanks a lot for sharing with us
hope you're doing well around my friend..HUGS..Agnes
Understanding of Hearing in Baleen Whales Amplified ScienceDaily (Apr. 17, 2012) — For decades, scientists have known that dolphins and other toothed whales have specialized fats associated with their jaws, which efficiently convey sound waves from the ocean to their ears. But until now, the hearing systems of their toothless grazing cousins, baleen whales, remained a mystery.
The fats associated with minke whale ears (shown here in yellow), previously seen only in toothed whales, may efficiently transmit sound waves from the external environment to ears inside of the whales' heads (shown here in purple). (Credit: Maya Yamato, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)

'Many dolphins have learned how to gather enough food in a short time, leaving them with lots of time to socialise and entertain themselves,' said Mr Perrine.
'There are many indications that dolphins have what we would call a "sense of humour". They may do things for no other apparent reason than that they are fun.
'But it is easy for us to misinterpret behaviour, and mistake aggression for joyful self-expression.'
CORPUS CHRISTI — A dolphin that has entertained millions of guests at Texas State Aquarium died early Saturday morning.
Trainers had noticed D.J., short for De Janeiro, acting unusual Friday and had planned to have the 15-year-old male Atlantic bottlenose dolphin pulled from the show for testing, said Kristin Bell, spokeswoman for the Corpus Christi Beach attraction.
D.J. was born in November 1996 at the Minnesota Zoo, according to a news release.

Hi Michaela..take i's easy your time and day...

Most whales and dolphins live in the sea. But there is a small, unusual group that live in fresh water. They live in some of the largest, muddiest rivers on earth - the river dolphins.
Amazon river dolphins - WDCS is a founding supporter of the Natütama Foundation, a non-government organisation (ngo) located in Puerto Nariño, a large village in the Colombian Amazon.
Amazon river dolphins - For almost 20 years, WDCS has supported the work of Dr Fernando Trujillo and the Omacha Foundation in Colombia to study and conserve South American river dolphins.
Trapped River Dolphins In Bolivia Rescued
WDCS has been involved in emergency rescue plans to free a small group of Bolivian river dolphins. Fortunately, the unusual cold weather in recent weeks bought the dolphins some time. Read our update on the rescue.
2012-02-27More Endangered New Zealand Dolphins Die In Nets
Last week, on the 22nd of February, two more New Zealand (Hector's) dolphins died, entangled in a gill net washed ashore on a beach on the east coast of New Zealand's South Island.
The two dolphins were found near the Waimakariri River mouth some 30 km inside the northern limit of the Banks Peninsula Marine Mammal Sanctuary. Under fisheries legislation, set netting is banned along most of the east coast of the South Island out to 4 nautical miles.
The populations of these dolphins, unique to New Zealand, are being rapidly depleted by being killed in nets. It has been estimated that in the early 1970s there were about 30,000 dolphins. This has now dwindled to about 7000, a huge decrease in such a short time span. These dolphins are listed as "Endangered", with the population trend rated as "decreasing", on the IUCN Red List.
WDCS, the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society, is currently in talks with New Zealand scientists, conservation groups and others to develop new proposals to provide effective habitat protection for these dolphins.
These two latest gillnet deaths put into perspective recent research by scientists from Otago University and NIWA (National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, in New Zealand) that an estimated 23 Hector's dolphins per year are still being caught in nets off the east coast of the South Island, based on observers placed on 13 percent of fishing vessels.
However, the absence of independent observers in other areas means that estimates elsewhere are unknown.
Unless stronger conservation measures are implemented very soon, the growing fear is that these dolphins are headed for extinction.
The Cove exposes the slaughter of more than 20,000 dolphins and porpoises off the coast of Japan every year, and how their meat, containing toxic levels of mercury, is sold as food in Japan and other parts of Asia, often labeled as whale meat.

(FREE MORGAN) AMSTERDAM — Animals belong in the wild where they are free to flourish and demonstrate their natural beauties. However, a court decision calls for the orca named Morgan to be sent to Loro Parque rather than to be returned home safely.

(DOLPHIN NEW On December 16, Sea Shepherd volunteer Erwin Vermeulen was arrested in Taiji, Japan for &ldquoushing” a Japanese hotel employee. The Dolphin Resort Hotel employee was supposed to be keeping people away from the area because the hotel was transporting dolphins from cages in the ocean into the hotel. The employee claims Vermeulen shoved him in the chest while taking pictures of dolphins. Vermeulen says he didn’t have to push anyone to get better pictures, because he simply walked right past the employee who was busy talking on his cell phone. DNA evidence conducted during the trial proved Vermeulen had no physical contact with the employee. Yet Erwin Vermeulen has spent 56 days in Japanese prison, and continues to be held.

(ANIMAL WELFARE) INDONESIA — Dolphins have always been regarded as one of the most intelligent and complex creatures in the sea. Their ability to communicate, learn, and socialize has captivated people. Capitalizing on the natural fascination people have towards the unique and human-like qualities of dolphins, three groups on the Indonesian island of Java continue to capture them from the ocean and train them to perform in traveling circuses. — Global Animal
