Meeting, Greeting and Stoking a Dolphin Megapod, Offshore Osa, Costa Rica Avivando Delfines

clock February 21, 2014 17:28 by author BlueEcoBlog

 Avivando delfines. Dolphin Stoking. How to meet, greet and stoke a dolphin megapod. People and Dolphins come together in the big blue offshore Osa peninsula, Costa RIca. Offshore Osa is the only place where this kind of thing is known and these dolphins need protection from nets and lines and hooks. Right?


Bienvenido delfines. Echar leña al fuego de amistad delfín. Como conocer, saludar y avivar un Megamanada delfín. La gente y delfiens se dan cita en el gran azul península de Osa, Costa Rica. Marino en Osa es el único lugar donde se sabe que este tipo de cosas y estos delfines necesitan protección de las redes y sedales y anzuelos. ¿Cierto?

Are tourists keeping Costa Rican dolphins awake?

clock August 30, 2012 09:28 by author BlueEcoBlog

Are tourists keeping Costa Rican dolphins awake?

Dolphins need protected areas and times.

Recent research on Hawaiian spinner dolphins indicates that they need protected times and places. Surprise! One bay is visited by as many as sixty swimmers at a time who try to play with a small group of dolphins. Seems the dolphins rest in the early daylight hours, and that’s when many swimmer tourists head out. Less dolphins may come into the bay and the dolphins might leave earlier than usual when too many people show up. Spinners in Hawaii rest in small groups near shore in shallow sandy bays near deep water. Scientists say these places need protection. Clearly tourists should be told to leave the dolphins alone in the early daylight hours and fishing and extraction should be stopped in the bays. Costa Rican dolphins should have it so good.


Costa Rican spinner dolphins deal with giant nets towed by ships, helicopters dropping bombs, long lines full of hooks, shrimp trawlers bulldozing the bottom, surprise drill ships making a big mess, big banging seismic surveys, cargo ships blitzing by, sport fishers plowing through the pod with lines and hooks, tourist boats gawking, and even some divers in the water. How do you think that effects their beauty sleep?


Don't forget here in Costa Rica spinner dolphins have no protected place at all.


Costa Rican spinner and spotted dolphins, who also rest in the early daylight, need tourists to leave them alone at this time. Sport fishing boats need to stop fishing in the dolphins as they particularly like the early hours of the day. Many hotel managers want tours to leave early to get everyone out of the hotel, but this is the wrong strategy if you are concerned about dolphins. Tourist operators like divers and fishers should put up on their web pages that they leave the dolphins alone in the am. Guests of Costa Cetacea over the years will recall that all tours leave late and respect the dolphins rest time, much to the frustration of some hotel managers. The interactions here in Costa Rica are much more interesting in the PM anyway.


Aloha to the Hawaiians for once again being the world ocean leaders. Lets hope Costa Rica follows.

Communication with Dolphins

clock June 23, 2012 13:54 by author BlueEcoBlog

 Communication with Dolphins on video. Listen to the spinner dolphin super-pod sing human notes. Shawn Larkin is into his second decade of interacting with this resident spinner dolphin superpod and as you can see they will swim right over to people who have been respectful and creative consistently. This offshore open ocean dolphin pod has been attacked and netted for many decades. This video shows that a different relationship is possible with the dolphin super-pods, one that may prove to be much more valuable than killing them as bycatch for easy tuna fishing.

Stop putting lines in the water before you argue against people in the water, duh! otherwise you have no moral high ground. Just obvious greed.

Learning how to interact with the super pods of dolphins is the best chance on earth to understand alien society and intelligence, and how we can interface. We need to learn how to meet and greet all over the worlds oceans. This is crucial practice for the human race. What if we are the helpless species trying to beg a more powerful one to stop killing us as bycatch or for consumption?

Music is a part of the the start to the crucial dialog. And gear and boats and computers and technology and people.

Stop the netting and start swimming.

Make money from creation not destruction.

Help the human race advance.

Play with dolphins.

They will teach you.

Thank you to Denise Herzing for many years of ideas.

Dolphins Dancing For Laura Chinchilla Again!

Dolphins Dancing For Laura Chinchilla Again!

Costa Rica To Conserve Ten Percent of Oceans.

Latin America's greatest ocean hero, Laura Chinchilla, granted future Costa Ricans a much better chance of sustainably utilizing our Oceans into the future.  The sad free for all of too powerful special interests will now be controlled with vision directed to the people and the future by a new Vice Minister of Aguas and Mares.  Wow!  No thats how you do it!  Seems now the voices of all groups of ocean users, not just the most connected screaming special interests, will have a say.  Now is time for Costa Ricans to speak up about what they know about our oceans, and help conserve it.  Have you heard about the largest dolphin pod in the world, the spinner dolphins of the Osa peninsula and Cano Island?  Aaaa, happens to be they need a park!  They live near to famous protected areas Corcovado National Park and Cano Island Biological Reserve, BUT, they live in waters attacked by nets and lines.  This Park or protected area, needs to be south and west of Cano Island to at least a distance of 30 nautical miles to help these spinners.  NOT just 8 miles from the island as some are saying!  8 miles is not enough to protect the biggest dolphin pod in the world and Golfito and Puerto Jimenez need to make a lot money in the long run from conserving these dolphins, not killing them for short term collapsing profits. 

Three blue cheers for the awesome president of Costa Rica.

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.

Will the Sea-lebraties help these Costa Rican whales and dolphins that Captain Paul Watson fights for? Free Paul Watson and free the Costa Rican spinner dolphin superpod of Osa with a pelagic park

clock May 20, 2012 19:21 by author BlueEcoBlog

What happens when you sing underwater to wild dolphins? They sing back. Listen to this wild spinner dolphin swim over and repeat the muscial call of Shawn Larkin as they swim together in the blue water pelagic of the open ocean of Osa, Costa Rica. This is true communication with dolphins. Wild dolphins do not speak English or Spanish or Russian, they speak music. This is close encounters of the third kind right here on earth, wild dolphin musical communication. Songwriting with dolphins.

 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8emfSE88ipI

These dolphins that write songs with humans are under attack from nets and lines. Unlike Paul Watson, Costa Ricans really have given our own dolphins the death sentence. While everyone should be outraged at the injustice of hunting sea mammals like Paul Watson for defending his own, do all the Sea-lebrites care about the dolphins and whales that the Captain fights for? Time to free Paul Watson and make a Pelagic Park, only then can Costa Rica begin to attone for our oceanic sins. Our dolphins need a pelagic park here in Costa Rica before it is too late.

Stay tuned for much more vibes from
