Kangaroo Island / Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch

Ah...the irony of it.......

While we celebrate, once again, maintaining a stance against Japanese whaling in the IWC as a country, we are ready to consider allowing a Japanese corporation to set up a woodchip export facility in an emerging Biologically Important Area for Southern Right whales and an important habitat to other threatened and endangered species in stunning, pristine waters.....????

Will we hear the ring of Japanese laughter at our hypocrisy when the IUCN task force visits Australia in 2020 to establish Important Marine Mammal Areas?

#southernrightwhales #endangeredspecies #smithbay #northcoast #kangarooisland #criticalhabitat #IUCN #marinemammalprotectedareas #pleasehelp #thetimeisnow #whyarewehavingthisconversation #why ??????Looks like we got it right first.

Here comes 80,000 tonnes of woodchips at Smith Bay......and is that a B-double?

Kangaroo Island / Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch

It was a beautiful day to join THE BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS - Southern Ocean Adventure Tour ... and it didn't hurt that the previous tours earlier in the day had multiple sightings of dolphins ... and the dolphins didn't let us down this time.
After seeing the Australian Sea Lions and Long nosed Fur seals sunning themselves on Seal Island and West Island ... we came across a large pod of Bottlenose dolphins ... including calves ... on the return journey ... near Wright Island.
They were spread out over a large area ... fishing, tail slapping, spyhopping and bowriding ... what a fantastic display.
A big thank you to THE BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS SS Ian and Crew Maddie (welcome Maddie and fantastic job today) for a great tour .... and for your ongoing support.

Kangaroo Island / Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch

Even though the weather was pretty ordinary leading up to the survey ... the morning of the survey wasn't to bad ... and we got back to dry land before it started to rain
It was quiet a sightseeing tour with a lot of different animals sighted along the way - a pod of bottlenose dolphins fishing of Oliver's Reef, Australian Sea lions and Long-nosed Fur seals on Seal Island and West Island ... a beautiful White-bellied Sea Eagle on West Island and a pod of common dolphins surfing the waves of the Bluff .
You never know what you are going to see when you go out on the BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS ... and we certainly saw a beautiful mixture of beautiful animal that call Victor Harbor/Fleurieu Peninsula home ... all in our backyard.
A big thanks to everyone who participated in this survey that started NATIONAL SCIENCE WEEK .. and of course to the BIG DUCK BOAT TOURS SS Ian and crew Rupert for a great trip.

Kangaroo Island / Victor Harbor Dolphin Watch

BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN RESEARCH INSTITUTE - BDRI
Dolphins playing with a blue whale off Galician coast (NW Spain). Our research team was recently lucky to caught what we described as an "incredibly magic aquatic moment" when a group of common dolphins start to ride a blue whale. Riding a whale may serves multiple purposes for dolphins, but that does not preclude dolphins having fun also. By showing these beautiful moments with all of you, our aim is to encourage our governments to apply conservation measurements and adequate management of human activities in these waters.

Fabulous night at the SA Whale Centre learning more about our whale population of Southern Right Whales along the Encounter Coast, and about Blue Whale research. The evening reinforced how precious our Marine Park is and how we need to protect it. A huge thank you to The Whale Centre Volunteers and to VH& KI Dolphin Watch for organizing this event.#moira4mayor ...
