A sea otter pup trapped in a single use plastic bag! Fortunately mum was able to remove it before her baby suffocated and drowned. PLEASE recycle and make sure plastic is disposed of correctly. Take part in local clean up operations (whether you live on the coast or not) This will help prevent dreadful entanglement issues such as this one.

No one knows for sure but scientists think over six million tons of marine debris may be entering our ocean every year. One of the reasons Project AWARE is collecting marine debris data from divers is to help build a clear picture of the underwater trash that threatens ocean life. With this knowledge, we can make more effective decisions when it comes to waste management policies.

Naked sea butterfly! There is no road to the White Sea Biological Station, which sits at latitude 66° N on the cusp of the Arctic Circle. Inside the station is an unlikely photo studio where Alexander Semenov, 25, is sharing his stunning photographs of arctic sea creatures with the global online community.

Sea angels are a large group of small, swimming sea slugs classified into six different families. The foot of tis gastropod has developed into wing-like flapping appendages to suit its free-swimming oceanic life. The largest species of sea angel reaches only 5cm. These organisms have a wide geographic range, from polar regions, under sea ice, to equatorial (tropic) seas. They are carnivorous, feeding only on other pteropods. /via wikipedia/

The whale trap ~ THE craggy coast and wild seas that give Tasmania's West and North-West coasts their beauty also make the region a deadly trap for whales and dolphins. The latest beachings just over a week ago resulted in 82 dolphins and pilot whales dying in two separate mass strandings on King and New Year islands.

Forecast: Hotter Climate Models Likely Right ~ More than two dozen major climate models are being used to forecast global warming from rising greenhouse gas emissions—notably how much warming will occur when atmospheric carbon dioxide doubles from preindustrial times. At current rates that unhappy milestone will be reached well before 2100. So which models are more accurate?

his photograph, acquired in February 1984 by an astronaut aboard a space shuttle, shows a series of mature thunderstorms located near the Parana River in southern Brazil. With abundant warm temperatures and moisture-laden air in this part of Brazil, large thunderstorms are commonplace. A number of overshooting tops and anvil clouds are visible at the tops of the clouds. Storms of this magnitude can drop large amounts of rainfall in a short period of time, causing flash floods.

This false-color composite (processed to simulate true color) image of Hawaii was constructed from data gathered between 1999 and 2001 by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper plus (ETM+) instrument, flying aboard the Landsat 7 satellite.

Cumulonimbus are the devil This photography was taken by an astronaut aboard the space shuttle in February. It shows several cumulonimbus towers and anvils over Brazil. Due to the tropics climat, cumulonimbus towers can grow to be 12 miles tall.

Did you know that one living reef shark in Palau is worth $1.9 million each year, but one sold at market is worth just $108, once? Using peer-reviewed research, this graphic paints—by numbers—why it’s important to save sharks and promote global shark conservation. It comes at a time when several nations –including Fiji –around the globe are considering new or greater protections for sharks. #volunteerabroad #goeco

Meet Jack and Daisy. These two harbour porpoises have amazing survival stories to share with you. They were both found as very young animals stranded on beaches, Jack in 2011 in Horseshoe Bay and Daisy in 2008 off the coast of Vancouver Island. No one knows how or why they were stranded but the Vancouver Aquarium Marine Mammal Rescue Centre was called in on both cases to help right away.
