pete g. allinson spends four days to a week trying to photograph the sperm whales off the coast of dominica. there are about 150 whales living in the area, and allinson uses a hydrophone to find their general location, and then waits patiently for the whales come to the surface to breathe and socialize.

allinson, giving the whales plenty of space and using a snorkel so as not disturb the animals with the bubbles of a scuba tanks, then gets into the water in the hopes that they will approach him.  

notes allison, “when they interact with us they approach us very closely, rolling over again and again, trying to get us to rub their abdomens and bodies. when you start getting close to them you feel nervous and intimidated, and then as they interact with you, you feel intense pleasure. you realise they are intelligent.”  

he adds, “they are truly beautiful creatures and i photograph them in the hopes of helping to save the whales. the more people who understand these wonderful animals the better”  

sperm whales have been hunted for the last three hundred years by those seeking the oily white spermeceti found in their heads, which has been used in everything from lamp oil to cosmetics to pharmaceutical compounds, and which gives the whales their name.

currently listed as a vulnerable species, sperm whale numbers have rebounded thanks to hunting bans, though this still puts them at a fraction of their pre whaling numbers.

At least 3 dolphins in Las Vegas at the Mirage are showing signs of being infected with a pox virus. The trainers themselves told us they will NOT treat them because “it just causes spots”.

"The sea is to dolphins much as the air is to birds—it is a three-dimensional environment, where they can move up and down and side to side. But dolphins don’t stop to perch. They never come to shore. Dolphins are always swimming, even when they "sleep." They are always aware, and always moving.

Understanding this, it is difficult to imagine the tragedy of life in captivity for these ocean creatures.”-HSUS

An orca calf cries as its taken away from its mother to be sold to a marine park. Think of this sound when you’re standing in underwater viewing feeling like that whale loves you and wants to be around you. Wild orca captures are still very real.

Reblogging for new followers because I feel this is so important.
This is what Corky, Ulises, Kasatka, Katina, Kanduke, Kenau, Tilikum, Lolita, Hugo, Gudrun, Kiska, and all the other wild-caught orcas went through when they were young. It is traumatizing. It is violent. It still happens. And supporting any park that holds these animals captive ensures that it will continue.

Oh my god I can hear it’s little voice shake, it’s actually crying like how when we’re upset and we try talking we shake and crack. I feel like it’s human almost, I may have cried.

So Dr Naomi Rose (scientist and anti captivity advocate) went to the St. Petersburg Dolphinarium in Russia. This is what information and photos she gathered:

Here are a few photos of the St. Petersburg dolphinarium - and if it looks like an Olympic swimming/diving pool facility to you, it should, because that’s precisely what it is. When the Moscow Olympics were over in 1980, this facility was standing more or less idle, so it was turned into a dolphinarium - Olympic logos, swimming lanes, diving boards and all. This is considered one of the best dolphinariums in the country . It is dark, noisy, and the infrastructure is slowly deteriorating, because of course it was never meant to hold saltwater mammals.

She has more info that will be posted soon.

These are the even darker sides of the cetacean captivity industry that you support when you decide to throw your money at any aquarium or marine park that houses cetaceans. 

Oh my god.

This is completely disgusting. And apparently one of RUSSIA’s top facilities. I hate to see what a low facility looks like. Thank-you Russia for setting us back in our hard work to end cetacean captivity. Grrrr!!!

The Turkish company Pugedon has recently introduced a vending machine that’s an innovative way to help both the environment and our furry friends. It releases food for the city’s stray dogs and cats every time a plastic bottle is deposited, and it allows people to empty their water bottles for the animals as well.

This wonderful service operates at no charge to the city because the recycled plastic pays for the cost of food. So, with a little financial investment, the simple machines do a lot of good. They provide a steady source of sustenance to the animals, many of which rely on caring residents to regularly feed them. It also encourages people to make a habit of recycling and help conserve our environment for future generations.

Put these everywhere

Please keep an eye on black cats (all animals really, but ESPECIALLY BLACK CATS) this halloween. People hurting the precious babies of the night isnt edgy or excusable. Thank you.

All-white cats as well, they are also used for sacrifices by sick scumbags.
