Dolphin Megapod Orgy, Solo Osa Costa Rica, Orgía Megamanada

clock February 20, 2014 21:35 by author BlueEcoBlog

Why is it called a dolphin orgy? See in this video from offshore Osa peninsula, Costa RIca. These dolphins need an area free of nets and lines to continue to mix their genes and grow culture. Osa may be the biggest dolphin orgy spot in the world. Let the dolphin festival swim on, no canned tuna, no shrimp, protect dolphin waters from the nets and lines that crash their party every day. Only Offshore Osa

Por qué se llama una orgía delfín? Vea en este vídeo de la península de de Osa, Costa Rica. Estos delfines tienen un área libre de las redes y las líneas a seguir para mezclar sus genes y hacer crecer la cultura. Osa puede ser el más grande punto orgíade delfines en el mundo. Que viva el festival de delfines, nada atún en lata, sin camarones, proteger las aguas de delfines de las redes y líneas que se estrellan su fiesta cada día. Sólo Marino en Osa, Costa Rica

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.

Oceanic ‘Avatar’ Playing in Costa Rican Seas

clock August 6, 2012 11:00 by author BlueEcoBlog

To Costa Rica’s local tribes of whales and dolphins, the onslaught of fishing nets and longlines might seem like an oceanic version of the blockbuster movie “Avatar.” The film follows a clan of indigenous aliens on a fantasy planet as they defend themselves against big scary machines and greedy creatures from somewhere else. The tribe lives fully connected to local natural ecosystems, helping to perpetuate them into the future. The outsiders want to destroy ancient systems for quick and large profits. Sound familiar? If you were one of Costa Rica’s dolphins or whales, it would.

Head out to Costa Rica’s blue-water pelagic ecosystem offshore of Caño Island Biological Reserve and Corcovado National Park if you want to see really cool-looking, intelligent creatures fleeing for their lives from their ancestral haunts, where giant machines are destroying their self-sustaining world for a few tiny pieces of it. Shrimp nets are like giant bulldozers razing the otherworldly forests of Costa Rica’s deep-sea bottoms. Longline fishing hooks kill magical and fantastic beasts every day, right here. Giant, floating ships assault and indiscriminately kill chiefs and children alike. The only chance this world has is help from the people of planet Earth.

Shrimp trawling and other forms of deep-sea bulldozing must be banned. The ancient groves of mysterious life on the deep-sea floor might as well be another planet for many, but not for shrimpers. They know that if they raze the timeless and intricate deep-reef ecosystems to mud and sand, they can make a tidy profit on some shrimp.

Nobody knows the scope of what’s being destroyed down there, but we do know that countless animals are thrown back to the ocean dead from every net haul. The lines of dead sea life often stretch for kilometers behind each shrimp trawler.

Longline fishing, in which a kilometers-long line with numerous hooks along it floats around catching lots of fish, kills strange-looking billfish and much more every day. Billfish, prized by sportfishers for their fight, stand no chance against long-line hooks. You can find them one after the other, dead and dying, along lines that stretch out of sight. The image of man dominating billfish with a smile, known as the trophy shot, has recently fallen from hunter vogue because taking the fish from the water for the photo can be the death blow to a fish that just had one of the worst days of its life. A new version for Costa Rica might be a shot of the big hunter trying to resuscitate dying trophy billfish that are suffocating from being caught on a long-line hook for too long. There are countless photo ops.

The photo opportunities provided by huge tuna ships are not shots most people want to see. In fact, the ocean dozers will stop operations if cameras are around. The reason is that the tuna ships perpetuate massive dolphin tragedy. If not stopped from dragging their city block-sized nets through dolphin pods, tuna ships will continue to kill and harass some of the largest dolphin congregations known on earth, congregations that are crucial for mixing genetic diversity and thus survival of the dolphin tribes.

The cetaceans of planet Earth are fighting for their lives against greed and myopia. You do not need a sci-fi avatar to hang out with them. Put on a mask, snorkel and fins and head out to the Osa Peninsula’s blue water, and you become a crude dolphin avatar.

And you may then know that protecting the cetacean tribes of Costa Rica from deep-sea trawling, longlines and tuna dozers is something worth working very hard for.

Dolphins-Should we swim and sing with them or put hooks and nets in with them?

clock July 20, 2012 14:00 by author BlueEcoBlog

Dolphins from this pod still being killed in July 2012.
Should Costa Rica kill them for tuna?
The video in the link below is Shawn Larkin freediving and singing with the spinner dolphin superpod of Osa, Costa Rica. Some people net dolphins, some people put lines and hooks in the water with dolphins. Some people sing and swim with them. What do you think is the right answer?

Why does KETO Costa Rica and Mar Viva and PROMAR,do nothing to help these spinner dolphins? They will take your money though and praise themselves for dolphin conservation, but what about our largest dolphin pod?.


Why do so many Costa Ricans cry about Faeroe Island and Japan and Greenland Cetacean kills, yet do NOTHING YEAR AFTER YEAR, to help their own resident spinner dolphin superpod from being killed in net and lines?

Why have so called Costa Rican dolphin conservation organizations not said one word about our Osa spinner dolphin superpod, the biggest resident dolphin superpod IN THE WORLD!
why?

$$$$ and corruption
Thats why.

Sharks are getting a lot harder to fish in Costa Rica, as the thieves have hardly left any.
The money now is in tuna that swim with dolphins, and its a lot more profit if you Ticos keep looking the other way por favor.

At least the other countries try to defend their sick atrocities. We Costa Ricans try to hide ours by whining and directing attention to others.

Pelagic Parks For Everyone!

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.

Billfish Foundation Fails to Stop Australia From Making Worlds Largest Marine Protected Area

clock June 18, 2012 13:12 by author BlueEcoBlog

Billfish Foundation Fights Agaist Marine Protected Areas and Loses in Oz.

The voice of the vast majority of ocean users is heard and they are not catch and release billfishers.

Fishers should always have access to most of the worlds oceans, not just for sport but to eat! But the world does need some places in the ocean to be free of nets and lines. Catching and releasing endangered billfish is not sport fishing and not as many people do it as some would have you think.

The crazy well funded, massivly sponsered, internationally super influencial Billfish Foundation took a big wave over the bow when the Prime Minister of Australia, backed by the people of one of the most ocean savy nations on earth, said our oceans are for a lot more than just catch and release billfishing. The Billfish Foundation has waged a campaign against marine protected areas, encouraging members to come out and help stop creation of marine protected areas

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.
