  • I love this photo because of the friends in it @cgmcd69 and @fragmentedsky— I look ridiculous. Tho, my expression reminds me of my fierce and wonderful niece, Sammie. But mostly I love that there’s evidence of me, Caitlin and Carley together (they even saved me a seat) and our friendships, which have spanned two decades. .
.
I also love that we were in a bookstore, IRL! A BOOKSTORE! And - yeah -  the event we were at was very cool, the launch of @steinkedarcy ’s new book, _Flash Count Diary_ that explores menopause as yet another biological milestone women pass through without adequate help, information or respect. Steinke navigates her own way by becoming obsessed with killer whales (among other things), because they are the only other mammal to go through The Change. .
.
(Another cool thing about this book: she read 500 books to write it! 500!)
.
.
Fun subject matter? It’s feminism 4.0, folks. FUN doesn’t describe it. URGENT. NECESSARY. F*&#$- YEAH — these words come closer.
.
.
Fun was trekking out to Midwood on a Monday night because these are the friends I survived grad school with; we’ve seen each others’ relationships (and jobs) come and go, and we’re all still writing. We’ve had our ups and downs, but I’ve always felt honored to be in their company. Their successes still make me feel like celebrating and like I can do it, too. .
.
The friendship - like the poetry - never goes. Nor does the feeling of urgency when facing all the necessary things. Love you two.

  • #chinooksalmon from the Fraser River are an important food source for the #orca in the #salishsea. We sent a big shipment of #flexibaffle to British Columbia, Canada this week. They will be installed into two culverts to improve habitat connectivity for salmon in the Fraser River. The #flexibaffle creates hydraulic conditions similar to a #fishladder to improve #fishpassage. They flex during the high flow so they do not affect the hydraulic capacity of the culvert. The #flexibaffle is an inexpensive tool to quickly improve passage issues at culverts and other fish passage barriers. #chinooksalmon from the Fraser River are an important food source for the #orca in the #salishsea.

  • @virginholidays have said they will end the sale and promotion of tourism attractions that involve captive cetaceans, such as whales and dolphins.
🐬🐳🐋
SeaWorld said it was "disappointing to see Virgin Holidays succumb to pressure from animal activists". That would be animal activists AND animal welfare scientists, SeaWorld...
🐳🐋🐬
As good as it is to hear that this move has been taken by Virgin holidays, it will be even better to see them extend this to Walt Disney World.
🐬🐬🐬
Did you know that there are currently three dolphins in captivity at Walt Disney World’s Epcot Centre? And it’s just down the road from Sea World. With all the outrage that is rightly directed at Sea World, Disney is still able to offer this ‘attraction’ with little damage to its reputation.
🐳🐋🐬
Cetaceans are highly intelligent, social and sentient beings. Orcas for example are among the most intelligent animals on Earth; they have advanced cognitive, social, and communicative capacities, and display a range of complex behaviours indicative of social intelligence.
🐳🐋🐬
They are highly dependent on echolocation and other sensory modes and in their natural environments, live in large family groups and are known to swim vast distances and dive great depths on a daily basis to hunt for food.
🐳🐋🐬
Confinement in oceanaria and use in commercial activities cannot be considered ethically or morally defensible given our current understanding of their sentience and intelligence.
🐳🐋🐬
You cannot recreate an ocean in a theme park and defending the captivity of these incredible beings under the guise of scientific research is deplorable.
🐳🐋🐬
Thank you Virgin Holidays for taking a step in the right direction, please don’t stop there!

  • She’s a real ballerina 🐋💙
Video by @dolphindronedom

The humpback whale has baleen plates that have bristles attached to them that capture small prey like small fish, krill, salmon, herring and mackerel.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Humpbacks have from 270 to 400 darkly colored baleen plates on each side of their mouths.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Humpback whales live in both hemispheres so they are found in all major oceans and seas around the world.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Making them to cross over the other side of the world during the feeding and breeding seasons. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
