#FunFact: starfish, aka sea stars, can regenerate their limbs or, in some cases, their entire bodies! They can do this as most of their vital organs are housed in their arms.
Some starfish require their central body to be intact to regenerate, however, some species can grow an entirely new sea star from part of a limb! ⭐️
Now that’s #mondaymotivation!

#HappyHumpDay or #HappyHumpbackDay?!
Did you know that female humpback whales appreciate friendship as much as us humans do? They meet up annually in the same place to eat together and have some much-needed girl time!

#DidYouKnow that Jellyfish do not have a brain, head, heart, ears, feet, legs or even bones?! These beautiful members of the Cnidaria phylum are 95% water, and their skin is so thin they can breath through it. #tuesdaythoughts

A copper rockfish explores its seafloor home in the Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary surrounded by anemones, urchins and sea cucumbers.
.
Our research expedition with @deepmare in May revealed lively moments like this and much more. Right now, our Marine Biogeographer Dr. Sam Georgian is with MARE and NOAA scientists exploring the deep sea in the Greater Farallones National Marine Sanctuary and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary. We can't wait to share more glimpses of this otherwordly realm and continue our work to protect its unique wildlife!

#FunFact: Seahorses have neither teeth nor a stomach- therefore food passes through their digestive system really fast! This means these ocean stallions must eat continuously to stay alive, consuming up to 3,000 brine shrimp per day!

#DidYouKnow that puffins, nicknamed sea parrots, are not only excellent flyers but great swimmers too? They can use their webbed feet as a rudder and dive up to 60m underwater in search of their favourite food! #tuesdaythoughts

Shark Week may be over, but #MakoMonday is here to stay. The shortfin mako shark, seen here, may be the fastest shark: it can reach speeds of 42 miles per hour! Swimming that quickly is one way to make Monday race by 🦈

#SharkWeek is coming to a close, but sharks still need our help: according to the IUCN Shark Specialist Group’s analysis of sharks, rays, and chimaeras in 2014, a quarter of their species are threatened with extinction. Fishing and habitat loss are among the biggest threats to sharks, and research shows that losing these predators has a big impact on ocean health.
.
One way to help shark populations recover is to create strong marine protected areas (MPAs) that give these species refuge from human-caused threats. We'll keep working to build and improve MPAs through our #GLORES and #MPAtlas initiatives so that future generations have the same opportunity to appreciate these amazing ocean creatures 🦈 🦈
