Former Marine Wants To Adopt Her Retired Military Dog

Filed under: InspirationDogAmazing

Megan Levy is a former marine with two tours of Iraq under her belt.

She became a handler for bomb sniffing dogs.

But when she retired, her dog, Rex, didn't.

After serving some more, Rex eventually came down with a condition that would lead to him having to be put to sleep if he couldn't be adopted.

So Megan has been fighting through the bureaucracy and red tape to try and get her dog to her.

Due to the power of this story (and the fact she received a purple heart) a senator, the owner of the Yankees and many others have stepped in to try and get her dog to her.

So amazing!

Dolphins Have Unique Catchphrases

Filed under: Science!DolphinsAmazingCrazzzzy

dolphin-uniqe-cathphrase.jpg

Two marine biologists studying dolphins have found that when a new group of dolphins meets another they have a signature whistle they use as a greeting.

Sort of like a: "Hello, I am Delphino, of the clan Swimsalot."

And then the other group responds with their whistle like: "What's up, yo."

LOLz!

It's just one dolphin that does the whistle, like their leader.

The whistle was only used if they were specially interacting with another group of dolphins, not just near by others.

So this really is a "hello!"

So cool.

A Cetacean biologist who read the study said this could open up all sorts of possibilities.

She said:

"We know dolphins learn to copy each other's signature whistles. What if they use a signature whistle to refer to a 'third party' or a dolphin that isn't there?"

Dolphins can talk smack on each other!

They're just like humans!

LOLz!

World Bank has launched a new partnership to try and raise an astounding $1.5 BILLION for the world's oceans.

They aim to double marine protected areas and rebuild fish stocks.

The world's oceans are overfished, heavily polluted and increasingly warming.

None of these are good for the earth, climate change or any of earth's inhabitants. (That means people too).
