administration is considering using seismic air gun blasts to search for oil and gas under the ocean seabed. Obama
The problem with this is that the blasts are 100,000 times louder than a jet engine and they'd occur every 10 seconds for months!!
There's a very good chance that 138,500 whales and dolphins will be injured and maybe even killed by these blasts.
Luckily, they have
fighting for them. He said:
Bottlenose dolphins are so crazy smart and cute we want to be friends with one!
We'd swim into the ocean and introduce ourselves, then, the craziest part is, they could introduce themselves to us: by telling us their name!!
Of course we'd only understand it if we spoke dolphinese but it's still a pretty cool fact.
A recent study published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B found that bottlenose dolphins have signature whistles and can use the signature whistles of other dolphins.
How terribly sad is this???
A bottlenose dolpin off of Dana Point, Ca is currently morning over her dead calf, and while she's filled with sorrow, she doesn't plan on letting go of her baby anytime soon, so she's been carrying her tot on her back for several days now.
The footage of the funeral procession was captured by
Captain David Anderson while he was hosting a Whale Watching Safari, and even though it was a sad sight, Anderson kept his composure and explained that he had never seen this type of behavior.
In the clip (above), you can see the mama carrying her deceased young, and we must say, the video broke our hearts.
This seems like a total joke but truth is stranger than fiction.
Ukraine's navy apparently lost three dolphins from their training ground in the Black Sea off the coast of Crimea.
These military dolphins weren't just trained to find mines or anything, they were possibly armed with knives and guns!!
Whatever happened to
Hootie & The Blowfish??
Darius Rucker, their lead singer, popped back into the limelight for a moment recently.
He was spotted down in Orlando, Florida visiting Discovery Cove.
What a magical sounding place! What did he do there??
Where are you Frankie?
Could you imagine a dolphin asking that to another dolphin?
Well, believe it buster, because it happens down in the ocean all the time.
Scientists have determined that dolphins can communicate with each other, and do so all the time.
We aren't the only mammals who like sunny San Diego!
Thousands of dolphins spanning almost seven miles were spotted near the coast of San Diego.
And authorities there are just as flummoxed as we are on what to do about the phenomenon!
A group of people on a tour boat first spotted the estimated TEN THOUSAND dolphins and experts believe that the "super pod" of dolphins is due because of the abundance of food in the area.
