Dolphins Dancing for Julia Gillard, Prime Minister of Australia.

clock June 14, 2012 19:50 by author BlueEcoBlog

Julia Gillard, by directing the island continent of Australia to declare around one third, that is 33 percent, of her national waters to be conserved, becomes the greatest hero of the sea the world has ever known.  While some countries whine and stall about conserving even 1 percent of their ocean, Oz has set the bar for the blue planet.

Why?

The coolest minister on earth, The Hon Tony Burke MP, Minister for Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population and Communities of the great nation of Australia, says

"This new network of marine reserves will help ensure that Australia's diverse marine environment, and the life it supports, remain healthy, productive and resilient for future generations."

A good day indeed for the world.

Starry Ocean by NASA's van Gogh team. Awesome Video from MIT, NASA and JPL.

Must see ocean video of the worlds SURFACE currents. Can't wait for the one that shows the deep as well. There is a longer 20 min version that is worth the download time as well.

Satellite Could Fall On Costa Rican Dolphins

clock September 22, 2011 19:43 by author BlueEcoBlog
Dolphins say they are not worried.

Pretty big chunks of burning metal will likely fall from the sky within twenty four hours. Thinking is that the most likely place to be hit is the oceans! We have no idea what the odds are of the satellite hitting a dolphin. Maybe no one would ever even find out.

However, we do know the odds are pretty good that the tuna fleet will be killing multiple dolphins today, as they do most days.

To bad falling satallites are the least of Costa Rican dolphin problems.

Costa Rica may abolish marine parks! Let the extraction begin!

clock August 24, 2011 17:11 by author BlueEcoBlog

A new bill would open up national parks to take things from them.

A small group of people from a port and commercial fishing city on the Pacific coast of Costa Rica want to open all Costa Rican parks to fishing. They say that there is fish in there that poor local people need to catch right now. Plus imagine all the hammerheads you could catch at Cocos Island National Park. Why not?

There is some good money to be made in a quick clearing of the shelves of our national parks. When the all the big fish are soon gone then the local communities could start getting little ones!

In Gandoca Manzanillo National Wildlife Refuge on Costa Rica's Caribbean coast, a marine protected area where people fish anywhere they want, any long time diver or fisher can tell you that most of the big reef fish are long gone. Sons know they will no longer catch as much as their fathers but so what, there are still a few little fish to see and eat. Its not over yet!

Cocos and Caño Island protected areas, where there are large no take zones, are full of big fish and lots of other marine life. Time to take care of that!

Why not duplicate this all over? It could be be fun. When very few people can make a living fishing and diving and with support restaurants and hotels, because most of the fish are gone, and marine tourists go to Panama, everyone should be able to find new jobs quickly, even if you have to go to Panama. Panama has a totally different plan: keep the tourists and fish in Panama and send the commercial fisherman to Costa Rica before the crazy firesale is over.

What       are they thinking?

Dolphins from Costa Rica speak again

clock August 19, 2011 14:45 by author BlueEcoBlog
Another dolphin statement translated.

After a period of silence mourning the contamination of their ancestral waters, some Osa dolphins swam right up to us and said, we think,

“That really sucks that these big ships can just show up by surprise and make a big mess and big noise in our feeding, mating, birthing and superpod waters. We thought Costa Rica was better than that. Plus none of the so called conservations organizations and foundations did squat. But they are telling you they watch out for us dolphins. HA. The tuna boats are still slaughtering us too. Lighten up people.  Will anyone really help dolphins here in Costa Rica. We only have fins you know.”

An alternative translation is,

“Do you really like the taste of canned tuna?”

We are awaiting more word from the dolphins of Osa Costa Rica.

Demi Lovato's Superstar Dolphin Buddy

clock November 8, 2010 21:38 by author BlueEcoBlog

Costa Rica's most famous dolphin shows up on BBC, Demi Lovato Joe Jonas videos, Disneynature movies, You Tube, newspapers and websites. A Blue Eco Blog exclusive.

The Tico Times newspaper broke the story last Friday that Sharkbite is the name of the Costa Rican dolphin of greatest international renown. Costa Rica's leading English language newspaper reported the spinner dolphin showing up in Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas's music video “Make a wave”, as well as in the epic Galatee Films Disneynature movie Oceans.

Today, Blue Eco Blog, upon perusal on the most excellent online animal archive at Arkive, found Sharkbite spinning for the cameras again! for no less than the BBC on the Blue Planet shoot.

Check out frames at 1:28 of the eastern spinner dolphin footage and you will see the dolphin missing a chunk of its underside. This is Sharkbite. Sharkbite is a charger. You can also see more Sharkbite photos here.

Sharkbite and his tribe are under assault from tuna dozers that kill countless dolphins in Costa Rica in sight of Corcovado National Park and Cano Island Biological Reserve. They need a park to spin free.

Costa Rica has no plans to protect Sharkbite´s tribal home. Tuna dozers are allowed to drag their massive nets right through it, even though it is probably Costa Rica's number one most important dolphin domain. Thousands of dolphins live here. They all need help.

Talking with Dolphins

clock November 7, 2010 15:22 by author BlueEcoBlog

News Splash from Costa Rica's Blue Eco Blog- Echoing Eco for Oceans and Waters.

A conversation with a bunch of dolphins.  Really communicating with dolphins.

After many years of very serious study Blue Eco Blog has translated some things from dolphins! Yes we have achieved inter species communication. Thank you. We have had many amazing beautiful mysterious incredible wonderful fantastic overwhelming awesome TOTALLY COOL encounters where they swam right up to us and said, we think, :

We the denizens of the deep want hotels and dining and businesses and people to treat waters with respect. Cut the shit. We like permaculture not monoculture. We ask could you let up already on the giant nets and lines that are collapsing our living room ecosystem? We, ah, beg you slow spewing carbon into the air,  its making acid in the water. Mucho mas marine protected areas would be really cool. And really, enough plastic, thank you very much.

We were also wondering if anyone knows a good place to get wasabi underwater?”

This is a rough translation, Blue Eco Blog will keep at it.

What do you think the dolphins and the denizens of the deep want to say?    Please no chicken of the sea jokes.
