  • Humpback whales are known for their magical songs, which travel for great distances through the world’s oceans. These sequences of moans, howls, cries, and other noises are quite complex and often continue for hours on end. Scientists are studying these sounds to decipher their meaning. It is most likely that humpbacks sing to communicate with others and to attract potential mates 🐋

  • 💧Back in Hawai'i. How often is your heart in one place and your head is in another? I’ve been working on being completely immersed in each day - the rule is wherever I find myself is wonderful. No comparing to what others are doing or what might have been. And sometimes, like this day with @silkymerman and @nash.howe where we ended up exceeded all expectation. -

  • Wildlife photographer Greg Sherman went nose to nose with a humpback whale and the resulting image will take your breath away.

  • ⚠THIS IS NOT A WONDERFUL SHOT⚠
The sharks in Oslob are fed for tourist enjoyment - it damages their health and disrupts migratory routes essential to keep a diverse gene pool. The use of a single type of cheaply avaliable krill for feed means the sharks do not get a varied diet and are lacking in essential minerals. This is a form of animal exploitation and has been condemned by various international wildlife organisations as unsustainable !
There are other places in Philippines where sustainable shark tourism is taking place - if more people know about this it might pressure the locals in Oslob to change their behaviour 🦈

  • That’s a Lot of Damage!🦈

This 3.5m female has endured heavy damage to her gills, but doesn’t let that slow her down!
The damage is hypothesised to be from another shark, as evidenced by the bite marks visible at the top of the scar.
Amazingly, despite being down to three full slits from five, and with the branchial arches being visible, she seems to have fully adapted to the decreased oxygen supply!
The regenerative and endurance of these magnificent animals is phenomenal!
