Close to Freedom: Rescued Dolphins Prepare for a Wild Life After Rehabilitation

Close to Freedom: Rescued Dolphins Prepare for a Wild Life After Rehabilitation | Indigo Scuba | Scoop.it

Throughout their rehabilitation programme, improving the dolphins’ health has been a top priority for Born Free’s veterinary consultant John Knight. John said, “As a welfare and conservation organisation Tom and Misha’s wellbeing has always been at the top of our agenda. To this end we have monitored them daily, with veterinary intervention and prophylactic care given as required. An important aspect of this monitoring process has been the regular collection and examination of blood and other samples. Taken together, this has allowed us to follow their health and welfare in great detail, and ensure that their release poses no risk to other wildlife in the area.”

Has this been forgotten already? The Gulf oil spill, two years later

Has this been forgotten already? The Gulf oil spill, two years later | Indigo Scuba | Scoop.it
The incident was even more costly to the environment. While the Gulf is home to numerous dolphin and whale species, many of theses dwell in deeper waters and are believed to have limited exposure. However, the bottlenose dolphins have been more susceptible to the effects of the Deepwater Horizon disaster since they can often be found in all of the coastal habitats.

The man is said to be working aboard a long-line tuna boat. Longline tuna operations use metal hooks to catch its target species, which is yellowfin tuna. The usual by-catch are shark but never dolphins. This is because dolphins never bite metal hooks as they sense this through their sonar.

Worried about diving with Sharks? It's all in your body language…

Worried about diving with Sharks? It's all in your body language… | Indigo Scuba | Scoop.it

So it seems like with dogs, Sharks bite and eat (you) depending of your body language based on Mike Rutzen a top diver (and a pretty brave guy) that dives with great white sharks without a cage. How cool is that? While he isn’t the first to do it, he’s taken shark diving to a previously unimagined level. He does it not for fun, to win bets or for the adrenaline rush, but to prove a point. And the point is that great white sharks have a gentle side to their nature.It’s largely to campaign for the removal of the nets that that Rutzen wants to change the image of sharks.

Although I would not be able to dive with a white shark sneaking up from behind, I suspect a large amount of suspenseful emotions involved.
