Melon-headed Whale (Peponocephala electra) — at first glance this squad looks like small False Killer Whales pod but the dorsal fin is tall with a pointed tip—reminiscent of its relative the killer whale and the whale's head is a rounded cone giving the animal its common name, on all of that you can add the white lips to confirm the identification of this small Blackfish. They aren’t seen often by humans because they prefers deep water, we saw them on a shelf from 200 to 1000m deep. . . . @canonportugal @sealegacy @seashepherd @canon_photos @canoncollectiveofficial @canonfrance @canonbelgium #stopwhaling #whaling #lifeforthestory #stopkilling #seashepard #stopplastic #stopplasticpollution #greenearth @canonespana @canonuk @canoniceland #conservation #stopculling #love_animals #animalofinstagram #whale #stopicelandwhaling #stopicelandicwhaling #lifeforthestory #peaceearth #earthdying #oneplanet #oneearth #wildlifephotographer #wildlifephotography #underwaterphotography #catamaran #boattrip #amazing_animals #cetacean #blackfish @_cleansea

Watching, waiting. Deciding if partial blindness due to staring into the setting sun is worth it. Cheers @nukarulu for the shot. The second photo is what I got once my vision returned.

I donated this piece to the @handsonchildrensmuseum here in #olympia for auction at their upcoming annual Gala. The proceeds will help support the incredible free and reduced-fee programming offered by the museum. Cheers to big bidding in the name of education and community! . . The piece is a double-bladed English rope (aka “sunfish”) knife. I engraved it in honor of the vintage schooner Meghan D, which was acquired by the museum and is currently being restored on the grounds as part of the new Schooner Exhibit.

Let me take you on a quick tour of the panoramic “sky” of the New Bedford #BasketballCourt ! As I’ve mentioned, this piece aims to align the deep mysteries of the sea and sky. We’ve hidden messages via the #nauticalflag alphabet that say “Consider them both, the sea & the sky” (Melville) + “What’s up? What’s down?” (Unique) + “As Above, So Below” (chant of a seawitch!) . I considered orienting the court’s sky ( #ocean wavelengths turn to clouds just beyond the sidelines) to the half court line as a horizon that the clouds would rise from. But since there’s a rich history of panorama painting in New Bedford- many of the old houses like the #OctagonHouse we stayed in have them painted around their cupolas & crows nests- we decided to wrap the court in #clouds facing inward . A bit about #PanoramaPainting in #NewBedford from a @hyperallergic article on #WhalingVoyage Panos: . “Before the dawn of film, motion picture entertainment was often literally a moving picture. From the late 18th to 19th centuries, entrepreneurs traveled the US & G Britain with colossal moving panoramas in tow. The large-scale paintings would be rolled between two huge spools for an audience, revealing a narrative through a succession of images. . Among these mostly lost wonders is America’s longest painting. The 1848 ‘Purrington-Russell Grand #Panorama of a Whaling Voyage Round the World,’ owned by the New Bedford Whaling Museum in #Massachusetts , stretches 1,275 feet in length and stands eight and a half feet tall. To put that in perspective, the museum has a graph comparing its length to 14 blue whales or 28 school buses. While the panorama had numerous exhibitions around the country in its heyday, including an appearance at the 1964 New York World’s Fair, it hasn’t been displayed in over 50 years. A restoration project, supported by a 2016 award from the New Bedford #Whaling National Historical Park, aims to return it to view . Our b-ball court panorama is far less narrative but it gets activated by people who occupy the space. Much as the history of #whalingship artists in interesting, we also prefer paintings that uplift the Whale rather than depict its misery . #stopwhaling #playbball

Herman Melville’s pew in the Seamen’s Bethel in New Bedford, Massachusetts. A good part of “Moby-Dick” is set in New Bedford, and the sermons Melville heard from this seat in 1840 shaped Father Mapple’s famous sermon about the prophet Jonah in the ninth chapter of “Moby-Dick.” In the novel, Fr Mapple preaches from a pulpit shaped like a ship’s prow, but the original pulpit in the Seamen’s Bethel was a very ordinary one. Tourists began flocking here especially after John Huston’s 1956 film adaptation of the novel, which recreated the pulpit in a Hollywood studio. Due to the demands of reading and movie-going tourists that reality meet expectation, the Seamen’s Bethel replaced the original pulpit in 1961 with one resembling the one in Melville’s imagination. - #newbedford #massachusetts #melville #hermanmelville #mobydick #whaling #photography #blackandwhite #fujixt3

I've been on fire with my picks lately. You really never know what's lurking down in the bottom of that bin or toolbox. . Such as this handsome 2 foot folding rule made by A. Gifford of Westport, MA. This rule is as big as it is beautiful. When closed, it's about 1/2" wider than your average Stanley. Its fully brass bound with large hardware. Its size and heft give it a nice feel. It's honestly putting my other rules to shame, making them feel flimsy in comparison! . Anthony Gifford was a whaling captain in the 1830's. He hung up the captain's hat by the 1840's to become a rule maker. His small enterprise only made rules for a couple decades before closing, and thus are quite rare in the wild. This rule is stamped with the Gifford trademark surrounded by decorative starbursts. I believe it dates to the mid 1850's judging by the binding style and hardware. . #markupmonday #foldingrule #foldingruler #madetomeasure #boxwood #boxwoodrule #westportma #whaling #rulemaker #vintagerules #brassbound #vintagerule #1800s #toolmaker #antiquetools #vintagetools #stanleytoolcollection #toolsofthetrade #handtoolsonly #timetestedtools #handtoolwoodworking #woodworkingtools #woodworkingtool #toolporn #rosewood #stanleytools #vintagewoodworkingtools #rulecollector #stanleyrule #mwtca

🐋 The wrought-iron shanks of the harpoons whalemen used to catch whales were made to be malleable, in order to catch better in a whale’s flesh and to prevent the harpoon from snapping as the animal moved to escape. After a successful hunt, bent irons were recovered and straightened for reuse by the ship’s blacksmith, although occasionally a twisted iron was retained as a souvenir. These harpoons pictured were probably mangled due to conflict with a mighty whale, but could possibly have been looped in order to demonstrate their malleability. Our first image shows a double-flued whaling harpoon made by Nantucket blacksmith George Swain Jr. He had a smithy on New North Wharf (now Steamboat Wharf) for over 50 years, where he made tools for whaling and horse shoes. In 1815 he made a whaling voyage on the ship Winslow of New Bedford and was a able to see first-hand how his harpoons were used. The second image shows another double-flued harpoon, this one used on board the Nantucket ship Norman. The third image shows a mangled American Darting Gun Toggle style Harpoon. 1992.0160.001 1998.1111.001 1998.1101.043 #harpoon #ackhistory #nantucket #whaling #history

Japan under pressure over past hunting of endangered whales Japan insisted Friday it no longer hunts endangered sei whales in international waters, but faced accusations of still violating a wildlife treaty by allowing commercialisation of meat from past catches. The standing committee of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) last October ... found that the hunt was primarily commercially motivated, and thus constituted international trade in a protected species and a clear violation of the treaty. Japan told the committee meeting in Geneva on Friday that it no longer permits taking sei whales on the high sea and is therefore in compliance with CITES ... But committee members from a range of countries, including the European Union, Israel, Niger, Peru and the United States, disagreed.

#Repost @oceanswithoutborders. Photo by @markziephoto . . Did you know, that just like we do, whales accumulate ear wax that can tell us a lot about the history of our oceans? Much like tree rings can tell us about seasonal conditions on land, whales deposit ear wax at different rates according to the annual seasonal cycle. These deposits in the ear canal, which appear as a tapering plug of light and dark coloured bands, allow us to determine how old they are. Perhaps more significantly, however, a recent study published in the journal Nature Communications found that stress hormones and other chemicals also accumulate in these plugs. When the scientists looked at the levels of stress hormones in these deposits in whales going back to last century, they found a surprisingly close relationship between stress levels and commercial whaling intensity (see slide 2). Interestingly, when whaling rates dropped during World War 2, stress hormones in whales spiked again… presumably because of the impacts of a sharp rise in the intensity of shipping and naval warfare. Commercial whaling largely ceased in the 1960s & 70s corresponding with a sharp decline in stress levels but have since risen again significantly. Scientists suggest that this may be due to the increase in commercial shipping, seismic testing, ocean pollutants and other environmental changes. We don’t know yet for sure, but this new technique offers some fascinating options and great potential for understanding the lives and impacts of environmental changes on these majestic giants of our oceans.

Picture of the jaws of real life moby dick, Mocha dick who was a white sperm whale, and sources say inspired the creation of moby dick. Moch was a massive whale who destroyed mmany ships trying to capture his during his time and easily evaded most captors, became a seeked prize and legend, Sadly died trying to protect a mother and her calf from a whaling ship, but managed to destroy several ships efore he was brought down. #unsungheros #whale #spermwhale #mobydick #marinemammal #whales #whaling #ocean #marinelife #oceanlife #sealife #legends #love #photooftheday #spermwhale #natgeo #nationalgeographic #sad #superman

This is infuriating!!! 😡 Earlier this year, Japan has once again resumed commercial whaling after 30 years.⠀ ⠀ Japan claims that they are trying to prove that whale population is large enough to return to commercial hunting. In previous years, they slaughtered almost 1000 whales a year 🙏😔 Whether or not the population is large enough, actions like this should not be tolerated and must be stopped! 🚫⠀ ⠀ Here are a few words from the head of Japan's Small Type Whaling Association: ⠀ - "Today is the best day"⠀ - "It was worth waiting for 30 years."⠀ ⠀ How absolutely DISGUSTING! 😠⠀ ⠀ Join the movement! 🌍👫👇⠀ ⠀ We ask that you share this video with an insta friend in order to help us raise awareness of this issue 🙏The best way to get the word out is through social media and together we will #changetheworld ⠀ ⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ •⠀ #grindadrap #whales #whalewatching #whaleseason #whalewatch #savethewhales #savethewhale #savethewhales 🐳 #savethewhalez #bethechangeyouwanttosee #bethechange 🌎 #bethechangeyouwishtosee #bethechangeyouwant #bethechangeyouwanttoseeintheworld #bethechangeyouwishtoseeintheworld #japanwhaling #stopjapanwhaling #whaling #stopwhaling #antiwhaling #stopkillinganimals #stopkillingwhales #savethereefs

Við Áir whaling station. Built by the Norwegians in 1905. A total of 4,454 whales came in at the station in the period 1906-1984. 3,155 Fin whales, 524 Sperm whales, 509 Sei whales, 124 Minke whales, 62 Blue whales, 30 humpback whales and 410 unlisted whales. And one exploding sperm whale in 2013.

“As Japan recently resumed its whale hunting mission, we want to look at the overall importance of whales for the world’s oceans. Why does the planet need these majestic animals to survive? • First of all, whales help to regulate the flow of food by maintaining a stable food chain. Through this, whales ensure that certain animal species do not overpopulate the ocean. For example, a blue whale can eat around 40 million krill per day so imagine the impact of blue whales becoming extinct. Krill would be able to thrive uncontrollably and would overpopulate. This, in turn, could destroy populations of other species that they feed on. That means that whales play an important role in maintaining the balance of the ecosystem. • Secondly, whale poop plays a large role in the environment by helping to offset carbon in the atmosphere. Studies have shown that nutrients in sperm whale poop, for example, help to stimulate phytoplankton growth which actually pulls carbon from the atmosphere. It is estimated that as much as 400,000 tonnes of carbon are extracted from the air each year due to these whales! And the fact that whale poop stimulates the growth of phytoplankton means that other species that feed on plankton have more to eat too! Phytoplankton feeds many fish which allows them to thrive and reproduce and fish feed many other species so it ultimately keeps the food chain stable. • As you can see everything is interconnected and our very survival depends on the survival of whales!” • • 📸 by Philip Thurston | @thurstonphoto Caption from Nakawe Project | @nakaweproject • • • #japan #whaling #banwhaling #ecosystem #whale #whales #bluewhale #spermwhale #climatechange #plankton #phytoplankton #saltlife #marinelife #saveourseas #sustainability #ocean #nature #conservation #respect #education #wildlife #nextgeneration #oceanconservation #community #awarenessoverdue #photography #photooftheday

It’s now the biggest rusty playground in the Faroe Islands...with a lot of history from the commercial whaling days.

Still round the corner there may wait A new road or a secret gate, And though I oft have passed them by, A day will come at last when I Shall take the hidden paths that run West of the Moon, East of the Sun. - J.R.R. Tolkien There is a place in my soul that swells upon spotting a secret garden. A glimpse of someone’s masterfully created paradise. Their intentional design for a place of comfort and peace. I relate to the desire and need for this space and feel connected in an odd way to the mystery person behind those hidden gates. 💛 . . . #secretgate #walledgarden #tolkien #nantucket #ivy #hydrangea #northeast #summering #onisland #ack #secretsofnantucket #whaling #latergram #westofthemoon #eastofthesun
