Something slightly different in support of my amazing brother, but a hugely relevant topic - Please take some time to have a listen. There are some extremely interesting points in relation to how it affects our diet, along with how our diet is affecting both us and those we share this amazing planet with  Sustainability is hot on the agenda in terms of our planet and how we can look after our home with the real issue that is climate change.  Check out my brother @alexmccormac on his podcast debut for a view of an Earth Scientist - Idealpult with Kevin Fleming on Spotify and Apple Music 🌍  Forever beaming with pride at this one!! Yas bro 💪🏼 .  And a cheeky shout out to the amazing @searchingforchinook 🐳  A huge reminder of how the smaller changes to look after ourselves can have a greater impact 💡 - Listen to find out more  https://open.spotify.com/episode/2N2Dc6ecRlyKNZpEkFNdOm?si=_H3XO55UT1C-tI4osy6RYA  #climatechange #ecowarriors #sustainability #planetearth #vegan #searchingforchinook #earthscience #diet #dietawareness #earthscientist

#repost @themarinedetective  Upon hearing this yesterday, the truth of it gutted me. If we lose the Southern Residents, it will be the first time in human history that we let a population vanish having studied them for so long that each individual is known, most since their birth. Currently at 75 whales, we know what has depleted the Southern Resident population. We know the current threats they face (and how these are synergistic). We know that the threats will be intensified due to a changing climate. We know enough to provide a life history on every individual that dies - their age, their lineage, their culture. This captures so powerfully how we are participants in their demise. There is no surprise here. There is even acknowledgment by Canada's National Energy Board of how precarious their survival is and how the shipping that would result from a proposed pipeline "is likely to cause significant adverse environmental effects on the Southern resident killer whale". And yet the recommendation is, to proceed with the Project.  Please take the time to reflect on this, to help share the reality but not to give in to despondency. Rather rise to a roaring "HELL NO". NOT on our watch. NOT with our knowing. I will say it again, the whales are barometers of our value systems and indicators of environmental health. How we treat them will ultimately be a measure of how we treat ourselves.  We have to do better in understanding this and seeing the GAINS in weaning off fossil fuels, disposables, excessive consumerism and governments that wield fear and short-term economic arguments at the potential cost of . . . so much loss.  Care more. Consume less. Vote for future generations. For more detail on the National Energy Board decision I reference above, please see my blog (link in bio). Thank you @alexmorton4salmon for this wisdom, shared yesterday by Dr. Paul Spong of #orcalab.  Photo: L-Pod in Blackfish Sound in 2009 ©Jackie Hildering. #orca #killerwhale

Post 1/some.  How can salmon 🐟, trees 🌲, and wolves 🐺 be so closely linked? - It’s no surprise that I’ve fallen hard for the PNW and its amazing biodiversity 🍂🐿- biodiversity which is in danger. I want to share with you the complexity and delicacy of its ecosystems and it gets COOL! - First, let’s see how salmon FEED FORESTS. The trees surrounding the rivers and streams that host yearly salmon spawning depend on these fish to survive. Why? 🤷🏼‍♀️ - After spending 2-4 yrs in the ocean getting nice & fat (and acting as a food source for orcas 🐳, remember), chinook salmon for example return to their home streams in the PNW where they mate and….die. - BUT, this is amazing news for their babs annnd trees because they have returned full of nitrogen and other nutrients which are deposited into the soil. On top of that, poop from predators, e.g. 🐻 and 🦅, adds even more nitrogen to the soil which is sucked up by trees through their roots. - According to science, up to 70% of nitrogen in the surrounding vegetation is from salmon! And sitka trees actually grow 3x faster when ‘fertilised’ by salmon! If these salmon were lost we’d see a cascade of impacts through the entire system. 🐳 🌲 🐺 🐤 - Not only are salmon vital for orcas, but they’re vital for the forests!  Can you guess where wolves play a role in this?? - @coextinction @one.species @pnwprotectors #salmon #chinooksalmon #searchingforchinook #pacificnorthwest #pnw #srkw #southernresidentkillerwhales #ecologyrules #wildlifeconservation #wearetheorca #wildlifefacts #animalbehaviour #womeninwildlife #wildtherapy #wildlifeecology #treehugging #salishsea #coexistence #conservationistkrissy #breachthedams #salmonruns #wildlifedaily #conservationblogger #environmentalactivist #saveourfuture
#repost @pnwprotectors (@get_repost) ・・・ 🔱Orca Action of the day🔱: .  Let’s all write handwritten letters to protect our 75 Southern Resident Orcas from extinction. . ✍🏼Breaching the lower four snake river dams is the ONLY way to save the dwindling Chinook Salmon and 75 Southern Resident Orcas. These dams need to be breached IMMEDIATELY!🐟🐬. . . . . 🔹Snake River Chinook Salmon Facts: . •1. Historical Chinook Salmon numbers for the Snake River range from 10-16 million per year. . . •2. In 2018 Chinook Salmon were forecasted at 100K, the forecast fell way short and only 67K actually returned. . . •3. In 2019 the Chinook Salmon forecast is 48K. Only 8,200 of those Chinook are wild salmon. . . . . 🆘 Breaching the Lower Four Snake River Dams is the ONLY bold, sustainable, realistic, intelligent, reasonable solution to save our Southern Resident Orcas and the Chinook Salmon from extinction. . . . 🔺Governor Jay Inslee🔺: 416 14th Avenue SW Olympia, Wa. 98504 . . . .  Beautiful Orca Photograph by our friend:📷@slatermoorephotography . . . .
@govinslee failed to take any bold actions to save the SRKWs from extinction. Trying to run for president at this point is comical. A true leader finds and follows through with viable solutions to save the orcas, the declining chinook salmon, and the thousands of innocent seals and sea lions that are being mindlessly killed by your inactions. Be a leader and breach the lower four Snake River dams and only then will people take you serious for president. Don't be remembered as the horrible governor who lacked the compassion and balls to help save them all. . Please watch a short film on the importance and benefits of breaching the useless and costly lower four Snake River Dams to save the Southern Resident Killer Whales from extinction. ✨LINK IN PROFILE 👉🏼 @orcalover21✨ . . #freethesnake . . . #searchingforchinook #orca #killerwhale #wasnow #endangeredspecies #extinction #documentary #orcas #killerwhales #srkw #salishsea #salmon #fish #savetheorcas #film #wearetheorca #natgeo #patagonia #seals #sealions #washington #seattle #respect #ocean #waves #river  #healingvibrations #bethechange  #extinctionisforever

@sophie.greeneyes  Goodmorning folks! Today is a great day to help the orca's and salmon out: you can write to @govinslee to implore him to breach the lower 4 snake river dams this year! It is vital that this gets done asap so the salmon can return to the salty waters of the Salish Sea again. Orca's, salmon and other wildlife will thrive within a year!!! Lets make this happen, together we are one strong voice! Thank you!

Transient orca get a kill in the gulf Islands. Please excuse my squeeeeing like a little girl.
New Zealand killer whale culture is amazing. They are known to play with the locals at the killer surf spots. Public involvement and awareness is also much better overall in New Zealand. During our time down there with the Orca Research Trust, sighting reports were being made by adults and children who would know which individuals they were reporting by name and they would know to include direction of travel, individuals present, time of day and behavior.

🐳 How do you ID a whale?... . . With patience, persistence, help and this handy guide from @centerforwhaleresearch 🤣... . . But really; • individuals have distinctive eye patches, saddle patches and dorsal fins!... We practiced as best we could over the summer and learned to ID a handful of the whales without having to check the guide but the pros at this are definitely @seahumansphotog and @hysazu 📷 ... . . #searchingforchinook  #whale  #killerwhale  #orca  #photography #wildlifephotography  #documentary
