To investigate this, researchers from Aarhus University in Denmark analysed airgun pulses in shallow water to determine the potential effects on small marine mammals.

Bring Balance to the Bering Sea Hope Spot

Bring Balance to the Bering Sea Hope Spot | Cetacean News | Scoop.it
The Bering Sea, Mission Blue’s 19th Hope Spot, is one of the wildest regions in the world and the source of more than half of the seafood caught in the United States. Spanning more than 770,000 square miles between Western Alaska and Russia’s Siberian coast, this area is home to vast numbers of whales, seals, sea lions, sea birds, ancient deep-sea corals, and people in Alaska’s indigenous coastal communities—all dependent on a healthy ecosystem.

Why we should listen to dolphin 'Voices'

Why we should listen to dolphin 'Voices' | Cetacean News | Scoop.it

The more you learn about dolphins the more they make you smile … and cry. They are every bit the gregarious clowns we suppose them to be — joyful, leaping creatures that not only rejoice in riding boat wakes, but bring presents on dates and giggle with abandon. They also are wrenchingly selfless animals,  reassuringly touching each others’ fins and bellies when danger approaches, or clustering together to hold up a sick or injured pod mate even at great peril to themselves.

End Sales of the Little People Aquarium Visit Playset

End Sales of the Little People Aquarium Visit Playset | Cetacean News | Scoop.it

Instead of promoting dolphins in tanks we are encouraging Fisher-Price to instead encourage children to respect animals in their natural habitats. Fisher-Price has the chance to join the ongoing movement world-wide that supports freedom for whales and dolphins. Children are so impressionable, especially at the Fisher-Price age. We suggest the remarket of this toy (and others similar) to endorse animals in their native environments. Please assist us in asking Fisher-Price to remove the Little People Aquarium Visit playset from their product list and end the sale of this toy.
