thepolishwho I was that kid that put on animal planet, back in the day when it was educational, most kids put on spongebob or cartoons, I grew up watching Steve Erwin, Jeff, and a bunch of others. After awhile it started to become the same old stuff so I gave up on it, I came back a couple years ago when I started watching #whalewars I have donated towards the cause. I am soooo grateful and excited for this! It is one less hurt towards are beautiful whales, from growing up watching free willy and watching blackfish the intelligence these creatures have are remarkable, their emotions are raw like ours and they are just amazing creatures! This is definitly something to celebrate! 4d

xisyklopsix Well this is embarrassing but I'll post it for #transformationtuesday the pic on the left was 1 yr ago. I was still working out but I ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted and even though I was bigger(230's) I actually looked smaller. The picture on the right is exactly 1 yr later (209 Lbs) after cutting for a couple of months I'm seeing the results. Notice where I tagged you all LoL! Losing some strength but I am 100% #focused and #committed to maintaining the #fitlifestyle #fitfam #fitness #gettingthere #whalewars #imcomingforthatsixpack #nodaysoff #maybeonedayoff #GMSI 5d

aquaticfanatic1 Less that 15 hours and I will be free of exams and free of any more studying on my degree! That will then give me time to be more active on this account, and to read all these books and watch all these DVDs! I'll post about everything and anything that I think you might find interesting, and try to do a "cetacean of the day" educational post about different species (my bowhead whale post got more likes than any, so I assume people enjoy those posts) . I can't believe it's nearly all over, yet the end seems so far with all my revision piled around me. If anyone can recommend any other books or documentaries then I would be very grateful. As you can see, I'll have a look at pro-captivity and well as anti-captivity books, even though I don't believe in wild animal captivity, I'm still open to see both arguments . Thanks again for sticking by me. These past few weeks/months have been so stressful, but somehow I managed to gain 100 followers!

freelolita Sea Shepherd Conservation Society is pleased to announce it has entered into a partnership agreement with the government of Mexico’s National Commission of Natural Protected Areas (CONANP) and the Federal Attorney for Environmental Protection (PROFEPA) to protect the world’s most petite porpoise, the critically endangered vaquita, and other marine species. As part of the partnership, Sea Shepherd will be involved in patrolling of marine fauna, surveillance, and research and scientific monitoring for the purposes of conservation, the organization announced today.
CONANP announced the partnership on their website on Thursday, April 30, immediately following working meetings between veteran Sea Shepherd crew member Oona Layolle, Captain of Sea Shepherd’s research sailing vessel, the R/V Martin Sheen, and representatives of CONANP and PROFEPA. The parties agreed to a strong collaboration in order to patrol the protected Reserve de la Biosphera, a marine reserve in the Gulf of California, from poaching that has brought the vaquitas and other marine species to the brink of extinction.
A press release issued by CONANP stated Sea Shepherd “is an ally in the task of protecting this species and others that exist in the Sea of Cortez and Mexican territorial waters,” and cited Sea Shepherd’s experience working in collaboration with the Government of Ecuador to stop illegal fishing in that region.

Representative of CONANP, Alejandro del Mazo Maza, held a working meeting with Sea Shepherd representative Captain Layolle, and agreed to work in cooperation to protect the vaquita and other marine species such as the seahorse, the croaker and sea cucumber among others. Others in attendance at the meeting were Joel González Moreno, Director General of Inspection and Monitoring of Marine and Wildlife Resources Coastal Ecosystems of PROFEPA; Mariana Bellot Rojas, Director General of Institutional Development and Promotion and Oscar M. Ramirez Flores, Director of Critical Species Conservation, both of CONANP. CONTINUED BELOW

  •   freelolita Since Sea Shepherd’s launch of Operation Milagro in March of this year, Captain Layolle and crewmembers aboard the R/V Martin Sheen have maintained a presence within the marine refuge, monitoring and documenting the issues facing the vaquita. Sea Shepherd crew has been concerned to see the extent of illegal fishing and deadly presence of gillnets within these protected waters.
    Despite a small volunteer crew, heavy winds in the region, and limited opportunity to come into port, the crew has to date had a very successful campaign, having recently spotted and filmed an elusive vaquita — the first time a vaquita has been spotted since 2013. The vaquita, the smallest cetacean in the world, is native to this region and is known only to occur here. According to reports from CIRVA (Comité Internacional para la Recuperación de la Vaquita), a committee that includes government agencies, marine biologists and NGOs, the vaquita population is declining by a shocking 18.5 percent each year – and if measures are not taken to halt this downward spiral, it is believed that the species could be extinct by the year 2018. Of an estimated 97 remaining vaquitas, only about 25 of the endearing porpoises are believed to be females of reproductive age. In addition, since the vaquita has a slow reproductive rate, giving birth to just one calf every two years, these animals are being wiped out faster than they can possibly reproduce. 2w
  •   freelolita Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto recently unveiled a plan demonstrating the government’s firm commitment to conserving the vaquita – an announcement that has inspired hope for these marine mammals. A two-year moratorium enacted by Mexico on gillnet fishing in the vaquita’s habitat has just taken effect and the country is taking other critical steps to protect the endangered cetacean. The Mexican government’s partnership with Sea Shepherd is further testament to its commitment to saving the vaquita.
    “We are thrilled to be partnering with the Government of Mexico to protect the critically endangered vaquita and other marine animals in these territorial waters,” said Captain Layolle. “Together we will work hard to make miracles happen for these imperiled species.
