This winter has been particularly cold, especially in our warmer southern coastal states. Unfortunately, it can be quite devastating for our fun loving sea creatures! In particular the Sea Turtle. Hundreds of them get paralyzed, essentially, stunned by the cold. At that point they become casualties of boats and or develop pneumonia. Learn about the sea turtle HERE! And let's celebrate those that rescue them and help keep our sea turtles safe!
While the fires continue to burn in the North Bay, I can't help but send my deepest gratitude to those that are keeping everyone safe. That goes to the fire department, police and countless volunteers that have helped their neighbors evacuate.

This is no magic act, it's called Global warming! The sea level rising has forced communities to relocate to higher ground.

In the Arctic the ice is a safe place for many sea creatures, including the Narwhale, Beluga and Seal. With the ice receding Orcas are able to move further north to get to their favorite tasty foods.
Local fishermen have seen the prey of Orcas act in fear as they approach, one example is the Seal. As a pod of Orcas approached a Seal would rather jump into a fisherman's boat than face the Orca.
