. Farewell Spit (New Zealand), 13/02/2015.- A handout picture released by the New Zealand Department of Conservation (DOC) on 14 February 2015 shows stranded pilot whales at Farewell Spit, a narrow sandbar at the northern tip of the South Island, New Zealand, 13 February 2015, after they had beached there. DOC staff and volunteers were trying to save dozens of whales from a pod of nearly 200 stranded pilot whales on 14 February, the New Zealand Department of Conservation said. More than 100 of the 198 whales had died on Farewell Spit, where they had beached early 13 February. Currently the remaining live whales are all upright and in good position for the refloating attempt at high tide later on 14 February. EFE/EPA/New Zealand DOC/Matt Nalder

    Pup Rescue: Sea Lion Strandings on the Rise in California Sea lions are an institution in California. Tourists delight in their antics at San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf, hikers are rewarded with views of thousands of them in the wild at the National Park Service’s Channel Islands, and every spring good Samaritans call to report stranded sea lions in need of rescue. But this year, those calls are coming earlier and more rapidly. Only five weeks into 2015, more than 350 sea lions have been rescued. Marine biologists are worried that this year’s rescues could be on pace to match and maybe even exceed those 2013 when the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) declared an Unusual Mortality Event (UME). More than 1,300 sea lions were rescued between January and May that year — five times the average rate. “During that year, we had rescued 19 California sea lions in January,” Sea World San Diego Senior Veterinarian Hendrick Nollens told NBC News. “This year we already rescued 87 pups in that same month. So this event seems to be much larger.”

    Sea lion flash mobs prey on fishermen’s catch (with video)  FEBRUARY 10, 2015 Veteran commercial fisherman Derek Morton describes it as an oceanic “flash mob,” a sudden swarm of California sea lions that descends upon commercial seine boats as they haul in their herring catch in the Strait of Georgia. “That’s what it’s like. They show up fast, they’re there, and when it’s done, they’re gone.” What makes the experience so extraordinary is the fact the sea lions have learned to slip in and out of the seine nets to exploit the herring catch at will. “I think it’s in their genes now,” says Morton, who has fished various stocks on the B.C. coast for four decades. “They just hop over the cork line. They’ve got it down pretty good. Hundreds and hundreds of them.

    The Marin County Marine Mammal Center has been receiving about ten additional sea lion pups per day. At that rate, the treatment center will be full in just a few weeks. Don Ford reports. (2/4/15) (CBS 5 Screen Capture)

      Pod Of Pilot Whales Stranded Off Everglades Nat’l Park December 4, 2013 HIGHLAND BEACH (CBSMiami) – Marine experts are trying to figure out what’s causing a pod of whales to beach themselves along Florida’s Southwest coast off Everglades National Park. The pod of what’s believed to be short-finned pilot whales is swimming in shallow water about three-quarters of a mile off the shoreline of Highland Beach in Monroe County, about 1 and a half to two hour ride from the nearest boat ramp.

      In this Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013 photo provided by the National Park Service, pilot whales are positioned in shallow waters just off a beach in a remote area of the western portion of Everglades National Park, Fla. Federal officials said some whales have died. The marine mammals are known to normally inhabit deep water. (AP Photo/National Park Service)

Nearly four dozen pilot whales are stranded in shallow water in the area. Four of the whales had to be euthanized Wednesday, and six others already had died, said Blair Mase, the marine mammal stranding network coordinator for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Necropsies were being preformed on Wednesday. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky)

Scientists say nearly half of all the sea lion pups born in island rookeries off Southern California this season have died and hundreds of starving pups are washing up on beaches between San Diego and Santa Barbara. Southern California rescues have become so overwhelmed, they have had to start sending starving pups to Northern California. And biologists say it is so bad on the beaches that rescuers have had to leave the worst of the pups behind while saving the strongest ones. (AP Photo/Pacific Marine Mammal Center)

              White whale calf spotted north Queensland September 30, 2011, 7:11 am A rare white whale calf has been seen in waters of Whitsundays in north Queensland. Marine experts believe the whale was born in the north only weeks ago. Tourist Wayne Fewings was on a boat when he took a photo of the white humpback calf. Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority spokesman Dr Mark Read says the picture indicates the whale is at least couple of weeks old.

He is the king of the celestial musicians.

                Did ‘Happy Feet’ Penguin Become Happy Meal? Mon Sep 12, 2011 11:59 AM ET Scientists tracking Happy Feet, the wayward penguin who became a worldwide celebrity after washing up on a New Zealand beach, said Monday they had lost contact with the giant bird. Researchers said they had received no transmissions since last Friday from a satellite tracking device that was attached to the penguin after he was released into the icy Southern Ocean on September 4. Happy Feet may have been eaten by predators, or the tracking transmitter may have failed or fallen off as the penguin swam in the sub-Antarctic waters where a New Zealand research vessel dropped him off, researchers said.

                Happy Feet after release, swims back to New Zealand September 05, 2011 6:22AM The wayward emperor penguin was released in sub-Antarctic waters south of Stewart Island yesterday more than two months after coming ashore on Pekapeka Beach near Wellington. However, according to a tracking device, he is swimming the wrong way and heading back to New Zealand.

                This image, taken in 2002, about one mile deep near a huge underwater volcano near Monterey Bay, provided by NOAA shows this strange marine animal, thought to be a new species that has yet to be described or named. It is a type of mollusk, called nudibranch, that sheds its shell early in life. Scientists think there are millions of species, like this one, that have yet to be named or even discovered.

                  New Species Of Crustacean Discovered Near Canary Islands ScienceDaily (Aug. 25, 2009) — During a cave diving expedition to explore the Tunnel de la Atlantida, the world’s longest submarine lava tube on Lanzarote in the Canary Islands, a team of scientists and cave divers have discovered a previously unknown species of crustacean, belonging to the remipede genus Speleonectes.

                  They swim through the complete darkness of submarine caves, constantly on the lookout for prey. Instead of eyes, predatory crustaceans of the class Remipedia rely on long antennae which search the lightless void in all directions. Like some type of science fiction creature, their head is equipped with powerful prehensile limbs and poisonous fangs.

                  Scientists: New species of worms release ‘bombs’ August 20, 2009 WASHINGTON – Thousands of feet beneath the sea live worms that can cast off green glowing body parts, a move scientists think may be a defensive effort to confuse attackers. Researchers have dubbed the newly discovered critters “green bombers.”

                  “They have a very strange way of using bioluminescence,” Osborn explained in a briefing. They have appendages, some round, others oval or long, which they release when they are disturbed, she said. Once release the appendage, it glows bright green. “They drop one or two at a time and if you keep harassing them they will keep dropping them,” she said, adding that the worms are able to regenerate the body parts.
