  • Can you spot the frogfish? 😮

Don’t Judge this Beauty based on it’s size 🌐🌊🐠
FrogFish is a bottom-dweller that spends its life on the rocky seafloor. Despite accelerated habitat destruction and pollution of the sea, wild population of frogfish is still large and stable.
⠀⠀⠀
Frogfish is a solitary Creature. It can be found with other frogfish only during the MatingSeason. Fertilization takes place in the water (where males and females release their Reproductive cells). Female produces 40.000 to 180.000 per season.

  • Evidence of Beluga Intelligence Raises Questions about Captivity
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The ‘talking’ beluga whale who has become posthumously famous after the release of a report revealing his speech, had the same legal standing as the computer or handheld device that you are using to read this article.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After his capture from Churchill, Manitoba, in Canada, he became a piece of property, owned first by the Navy and later the National Marine Mammal Foundation (NMMF). He was used in various acoustic experiments for years and was denied the right to control any aspect of his life: the right to bodily integrity; the right to privacy of any sort; and any other right which you and I (thankfully) possess.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In both cases, as with every other captive cetacean on the planet, this removal of freedoms and designation as property is in the name of ‘education’, ‘science’ and ‘conservation’. Regardless of the validity of these statements, the question becomes whether the complete removal of rights from these individuals is ethically defensible.
The justifications given, whether stated or implied, are that beluga whales are not capable of having emotions, complex thoughts, and do not otherwise possess those human qualities which entitle us to the basic rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness.
But are these justifications grounded in scientific fact? Are beluga whales indeed lacking these qualities?
There is a burgeoning body of both scientific and anecdotal evidence suggesting that there is much more to a cetacean’s brain than the captivity industry, comprised of places like SeaWorld and the Georgia Aquarium, might care to admit.

  • Você já conhecia o super iate controlado via iPad? O Adastra impressiona por qualquer que seja o ângulo do qual ele seja visto. O iate é um trimarã de 42,5 metros projetado para levar até nove passageiros. Ele foi criado para navegar em oceano possuindo um bom consumo de combustível, apenas
20% do barco fica submerso, o que diminui a força necessária para deslocá-lo na água. Possui um interior luxuoso composto por quatro quartos e três banheiros, um salão, ante-sala e uma cozinha industrial.
