#throwbackthursday to my unforgettable experience at #vancouveraquarium as part of the marine mammal rescue team. I can’t believe it was eight years ago, I was just starting on the lifelong journey that brought me to where I am today. Eight years later and the harbour seals (or common seals as they’re called here in the UK) are as cute as on day one. ❤️

Lucky me... I get to volunteer at The Marine Mammal Center caring for orphaned or otherwise stranded harbor seals (one of the multiple Marine Mammal species TMMC works with). Pictured are 🌊administering meds (to the chosen seal) via a hand-fed “med fish”, exactly what it sounds like. 🐟 ➕💊
🌊tube feeding a “fish milkshake” to neonate pup who hasn’t learned to eat whole fish yet,
🌊Giving an antibiotic injection to help support a smooth and speedy recovery & release.

Look like something you want to learn to do? TMMC offers great training to volunteers. 
You can apply to volunteer on the web-  http://www.marinemammalcenter.org/

This is the friend I was making for my chubby seal! 💧

Little seal is so forward, holding the plumpy walrus' hand already haha! 🤭🤭🤭 Tag a friend who you think is totally weird when you met him/her! 😋

And here are some pics of little Coal - so happy to have spotted this special soul and to know he’s safe -and stubborn - being stubborn ain’t always bad when it comes to survival 😈 😇 🤣 #seals #stubborn #pup

Went on a weekend photo adventure with @crisp_image_photography and we found this little seal pup on some cliffs at low tide. He was absolutely adorable, but kept letting out some pretty intense squeals that almost sounded a human child. No mom in sight 😰 We were worried about him as he seemed stranded with no way to get back to the water. None of us had any real experience with seals, so we couldn’t figure out what to do. The little guy ended up falling down between some boulders getting stuck under there 😱 After that we were really concerned and called @marinemammalrescue to get advice. We gave them the coordinates and they ended up picking up the pup! Turns out he was in trouble - underweight and seemingly without a mom. Now he is in good hands in Vancouver being nursed back to health! YAY!!!! 😃👏🙌Photo by @michaelaagaardphoto :

After countless hours, many sleepless nights, and more than 30+ failed projects, I FINALLY finished something that I started  3 years ago! My own version of the chubbies seal pup!! I struggled with this for so long because I really, really REALLY hate irregular increases.  It is hard to gauge how the form will look like.  One or two extra stitch here or there can throw your project off completely.  I also didn't want to do a generic seal that "anyone can do". NOT saying that the ones already out there are bad or anything, but I always strive to make plushes that are as unique to my brand as possible. .
.
Sooo!  If you're one of the many people who ever asked me why I haven't made a seal yet (since I donate to the @marinemammalrescue to help rescue seals!), this is why.  It's not that I didn't want to, it's just been an endless ongoing project that gave me the worst headaches.  I sincerely hope you'll like this newest addition to the Croochet world though!  Lastly, I can't think of a name for this little one, can someone start throwing out suggestions?! ❤️

WARNING ⚠️ graphic pictures. I called to get help for these seals from Marine Mammal Rescue several times, and finally I was able to get ahold of supervisor. They explained that they are tied up trying to get federal permits and the seals are inaccessible because they are on a floating dock. The one with rope wrapped around it may be saved by using a long pole with a loop knife to cut it off from a distance. Pray 🙏💚🌍that their suffering ends. #seals #marinemammalrescue #oceanprotection #santacruz #santacruzsurf

Seal pups vocalise calling for food, they’re still dependent to be fed and as you can see - with so many mouths to feed @marinemammalrescue is doing an incredible job!! COAL is number 99 so yes - there’s A LOT of calls for a food delivery 📦😆 #seals #marinemammalrescue #pups

He was so bitey! But, my first rescue under my belt! #BDMLR #MarineMammalRescue
This little beauty was rescued from here in Rye back in June. Our colleagues at @nationalmarinelifecenter have been working to stabilize her health and teach her to eat fish. We are hopeful she’ll keep making progress and be released back into the ocean when she’s strong and able to fend for herself.

Meet Piscataqua (Cat). Cat is an abandoned, maternally dependent harbor seal pup who was rescued from Rye, NH by our friends at the @seacoast_science_center. Having been separated from Mom she was thin, and lethargic and had been following around an older, healthy weaned pup when she was spotted. Unfortunately all rehab space was full so the Seacoast Science Center rescue team took her vitals, administered fluids, and tagged her hind flipper to easily identify her if she was spotted again. Luck was on her side as she was spotted again a couple of days later with an available hospital space for her! •
•
Cat is now in stable condition and has started to eat small pieces of herring on her own just this week! This is a great step in her rehabilitation and eventual release back to the ocean.

If you would like to “adopt” Piscataqua or another pup in our care you can follow the link in our profile.

• Сегодня отмечается Всемирный день китов и дельфинов!
.
По такому случаю у нас есть хорошая новость - официально подтвердилась информация о том, что на капитана рыболовецкого судна "Обь", пытавшегося скрыть факт гибели афалины в его трале, завели административное дело. Капитан зол, а ведь решается еще и вопрос касательно вылова видов, занесенных в Красную книгу.
.
Очень важно учесть то, что нам удалось добиться этого только благодаря сделанным фотографиям (смотрите предыдущий пост). Однако, если бы погибшая афалина приняла внутри мешка другое положение, мы никогда бы и не узнали о том, что она там вообще была. На руку сыграло также и то, что сейнер поднимал сеть с кормы. Средние рыболовецкие траулеры, которые тоже во множестве работают в нашей акватории, поднимают сеть по слипу сзади, а в таких случаях увидеть дельфина внутри сети невозможно.
Для того, чтобы фиксировать и контролировать выгрузку сетей на сейнерах и не пропускать множество аналогичных случаев, мы решились начинать осуществлять съемку с воздуха - в одном из следующих постов запустим обособленный сбор средств на приобретение дрона.

• ПОДВОДНОЕ ВЗАИМОДЕЙСТВИЕ ДЕЛЬФИНОВ С ОТЦЕЖИВАЮЩИМИ СЕТЯМИ
(А также немного новостей о Балаклавских попрошайках)
.
Не без экстрима прошло наше недавнее патрулирование Судакско-Новосветской акватории, в ходе которого мы много часов следовали за малым рыболовным сейнером и наблюдали за поведением афалин, собравшихся, как обычно, в большое стадо в погоне за ним. Впервые нам удалось подойти вплотную к активно движущейся сети и понырять в опасной от нее близости, чтобы запечатлеть на камеру поведение дельфинов в эти моменты. Спускаясь с лодки в воду и находясь буквально в нескольких метрах от волочащегося трала, мы могли видеть, как плотное скопление афалин следовало за конечной кромкой мешка, жадно подбирая выпавших мертвых рыб, некоторые животные пытались вытаскивать их пастью прямо из ячеи (что, кстати, достаточно рискованно, ведь за сеть можно зацепиться зубами). Кое-кто из дельфинов умудрился даже "прокатиться" на ней сверху. Проникать внутрь самой сети никто из них в этот раз не стал, хоть они и делают это достаточно часто (обычно заплывают в более крупные тралы, однако мы отмечали заходы и в подобную сеть, причем с летальным исходом).
После того, как судно остановилось и рыбаки принялись за выборку сетей, мы смогли подойти к ней под водой еще ближе. Большие светящиеся пузыри, выдуваемые дельфинами, столбами шли с глубины на поверхность; нырнув вниз, мы увидели, как основная часть группы собралась возле уже раскрытого и выгруженного мешка, просовывая носы внутрь и вынимая остатки шпрота. Среди афалин показалась одинокая белобочка, идентифицированная нами раннее, и раз за разом бесстрашно проплывала мимо нас на расстоянии вытянутой руки.
.
Все это действо сильно напомнило ситуацию с дельфинами в Балаклаве. Рыболовство "развратило" животных до такой степени, что, даже понимая и видя опасность, они продолжают ходить за приспособлениями людей, вместо того, чтобы самостоятельно искать и ловить рыбу.

She will go months without eating so that her pup gets all the nourishment it needs to survive. She will fight off big males twice her size or other females who might try to steal her pup. Yes, this is motherly love! #elephantseals #elephantsealpups #sansimeon #breakwaterscuba #scubadiving #wildlifephotography #elephantsealadventure #marinmammal #marinemammalrescue

Waking up early isn't so bad when you help these babies out #drool #sealpup #marinemammalrescue 💙
Glad to hear he's getting better.

This little grey seal came ashore in Brigantine a few weeks ago. He dragged himself out of the ocean and collapsed. Our staff immediately came to his aid and brought him in to carefully remove the net from around bis neck. It's so sad to see animals caught in humans trash. He is healing nicely and will go back to sea in a few weeks. You can help with his medical and food needs. Www.mmsc.org.

SSC Marine Mammal Rescue team leader Ashley made several trips to Rye Harbor marsh today to try and herd a gray seal away from busy Route 1A and back toward the water. This 100-lb female seal had probably swum up the channel at high tide but was resisting the idea of heading back out. Gray seals are generally larger and more aggressive than harbor seals, as evidenced by her opposition to human approach. Never approach a seal of any size. If you see one on land in NH or northern MA, call our hotline at 603-997-9448 so we can send an experienced responder.

Tuesday mornings are for releasing dolphins! Fortunate enough to be part of the Marine Mammal Rescue and Research Team for @action4ifaw and working alongside a few of my ocean steward favorites!
“Cape Cod is known as one of the greatest hot spots for marine mammal strandings in the world. Yesterday, IFAW’s marine mammal rescue team responded to a mass stranding of fourteen Atlantic white-sided dolphins in Wellfleet, Cape Cod. Ten dolphins were successfully released back into the Cape Cod waters off Provincetown. One dolphin was satellite tagged and will be monitored in the next upcoming weeks to follow the animal’s post-release progress. Remember! If you find a stranded dolphin, call a trained rescue team. Dragging or moving the animal could result in serious injury to you and them.” - @action4ifaw .

If you find a stranded seal or dolphin, you can help – but not the way you’d might think:
–––
1.  Maintain a safe distance (greater than 150 ft!) #DYK? Your presence can help ward off gulls, potentially saving a life!
–––
2. Call your local stranding response agency. (noaa.gov) If you're on Cape Cod, IFAW is the designated response agency. You can call our hotline at 508-743-9548

FWC asks the public to report stranded marine mammals immediately: Don’t Push Them Back!
Keep a safe distance and call the FWC Wildlife Alert Hotline: 888-404-3922, press “7” to speak with an operator.
Stranded marine mammals can be sick or injured, pushing an animal back to sea delays, and may hinder, the chance for experienced rescue teams to assess and provide treatment.
Marine mammals are federally protected and should not be touched or harassed and may be capable of powerful and unpredictable moves.  #fwcresearch #fwc #dontpushthemback #marinemammalstranding #stranding #wildlifealert #marinemammalrescue

Look who's beaten the odds of being bitten by a shark (you can see one of the open wounds in her side in this early photo) and is now ready for release. Gray seal weanling Millie has been in rehab at @nationalmarinelifecenter since our team responded to her on March 27 and tonight at 6pm, she'll splash back into the sea with two of her fellow "graduates." We are thrilled to have another response-to-release success story from our program!

このすごい太いアシカくんはバンクーバー水族館に助けられた。銃に撃たれた(なぜか知らない、魚ファームを守ることって)から、とても盲目になった。水族館の動物病院に一年間住んだけど、今海に必ず死ぬでしょ、ここで引っ越した。
