It's Time for a Conversation - Graphic: A Mind of Their Own

Dolphins don't process high-level information in enlarged frontal lobes as we do, but they're adept at solving problems and can apparently plan for the future. Seeing With Sound Dolphins have evolved a sensory system to detect objects underwater using the echoes created by sounds. Sound travels four times as fast in the water as in the air. How Echolocation Works Click to play animations 1 Dolphins produce clicks by pushing air past structures called phonic lips, which are attached to the blowhole. 2 The beam of clicks bounces off the target and returns to the echolocating dolphin. 3 The lower jaw—like the melon, filled with acoustic fat—directs an incoming echo to the brain via the ear and auditory nerve.

Swim with Humpback Whales in the Dominican Republic. Hunt for Russian sub may have caused spate of whale and dolphin deaths. Whale and Dolphin Conservation (WDC), said the mass stranding “could be linked to a reported search by British navy warships for a suspected Russian submarine.”

Hunt for Russian sub may have caused spate of whale and dolphin deaths

It said: “Investigations following Britain’s largest mass dolphin stranding in 2008 concluded that the only realistic cause was military exercises taking place in the area at the time.” However one Naval source said the link was “pretty tenuous” because the search had not involved active sonar. How tiny plankton brighten the clouds over Southern Ocean. Researchers have uncovered findings in the Southern Ocean that reaffirm the importance of plankton to our planet's temperatures.

How tiny plankton brighten the clouds over Southern Ocean

The answer lies in the activities of plankton, tiny sea creatures more commonly associated with feeding whales than promoting climate change, according to a NASA-funded study that was released Friday in Science Advances journal. Here’s how it works: like most plants, green phytoplankton get their color from chlorophyll, a chemical that also allows them to absorb sunlight. In the process of doing so, plankton release a compound named dimethylsulfoniopropionate, or DMSP. Scientists already knew that DMSP helps clouds form by converting into tiny aerosol particles that essentially seed clouds, reported The Christian Science Monitor’s Pete Spotts.

Clouds, of course, produce rain, which helps cool the earth by catching radiation from the sun. Killers of Eden: Killers in Eden. Ric O'Barry's Dolphin Project. Des dauphins Maui au dilemme des choix étatiques. Une publication récente de notre site a attiré l'attentin de Hubert Reeves.

Thomas Bilde Below lives in Copenhagen, but travels to Greenland every year. “They have the long dorsal fin,” he says of killer whales, or orca, “so they couldn’t come into ice areas before.” Below says that this year, hunters have caught one or two orcas, but 35 to 40 have been harvested in previous years. The hunt usually begins in August and continues into October in the villages of Tasiilaq, Kuumiut, Kulusuk and Ittoqqortoormiit.

The hunters, he says, usually travel in small boats. “They’re typically after seals, and sometimes they are lucky to spot an orca pod and then they go after them slowly, very slowly.” Ocean Defender » Join Ocean Defender’s Ohana.

Stranded long-finned pilot whale on Essex river starved, says expert. The young long-finned pilot whale calf found dead in an Essex river on Thursday probably died from starvation, according to preliminary results from a postmortem by a specialist at the Zoological Society of London (ZSL). The 2.18-metre female was one of a pod of up to 40 whales that frequented coastal shallows in and near the Blackwater estuary and was seen feeding on herring earlier this week. Experts said they should have been in far deeper water. She is only the second long-finned pilot whale, part of the dolphin family, recorded as stranded since the present reporting system for UK whale and dolphin strandings was introduced in 1990.

A case in Norfolk in 1992 was the only other one among more than 12,000, indicating just how rare this week’s events have been. The calf had stranded alive before dying on a beach near the village of Goldhanger. Bonner Konvention verabschiedet bahnbrechende Entscheidungen für Wale und Delfine - WDC.

Convention de Bonn 1979 (CMS) Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals 1979 (CMS) - WDC has been working through the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS) for many years and is a Partner organisation to the Convention. Entered into force on 1 November 1983 the Convention is the sole international treaty that seeks to specifically address the conservation needs of migratory animals. The Earth’s natural resources are currently being consumed by people at rates and in ways that place unsustainable pressure on many of the world’s ecosystems and species. This unsustainable pressure comes in the form of various threats such as manmade climate change, the spread of diseases around the planet as a result of international trade and travel, the destruction of natural habitats and urban development, light pollution, noise pollution, pesticide use and the trade in wildlife.
