This is J37 Hy’Shqa at Point Robinson today, according to Melisa Pinnow. So we had part of J pod with K pod in Puget Sound today, even if we couldn’t see them all while they were spread out in the huge waves whipped by ferociously icy winds!

I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
I’m telling you, orcas are smarter than us. And yet some people see no problem in treating them like circus clowns.
reason #710 why I love whales
Deceased captive Northern Resident Orca Kenny.
Heeeey you :D I hope you had a good week ~
I became involved in the movement about a year and a half ago or so. It was around the end of August 2012, early Sept. I have always been interested in sea life and the ocean, growing up in Southern California. I was on Tumblr looking at pictures of sea life and came across the blog shamudictionary. I had no idea we had names for whales living in the wild. When I came to Lolita’s story in particular.. I knew this wasn’t right.
My mom before she died this year became anticap herself. She never knew these places were bad. She believed the stories. She took me when I was little. She is the reason why I love animals. <3
