To celebrate the International Day for Biological Diversity, I'll share my favorite humpback whale picture. This was a memorable day, with this adult and a calf breaching one after another. The day was gray during the whole morning and the whales were not collaborating... Then, the sky opened to this light blue and the whales start to pop in the ocean! Amazing!!!

The most stunning place in the Planet!!! #LeSoleal went south of the Polar Circle, with this incredible cold day, blue sky and brash ice, to amazed everyone on board, navigating slowly (because of the ice, and because of the landscape). A day to remember!!!!

Who doesnโ€™t love a Manatee?!! #Repost @savingthewaves with @get_repost ใƒปใƒปใƒป ๐ŸŒ€ What is that smell?? ๐Ÿ‘€๐Ÿ‘ƒ๐Ÿ‘ƒ โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€”โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€”โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€”||โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€”โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€”โ€“โ€“โ€”โ€” ๐Ÿ”˜ #SavingTheWaves โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ€จThe #manatee is a #marine mammal, like a #seal or a #whale, but is unique in many ways. Like all #mammals, manatees have #lungs and breathe air. Therefore, they must hold their breath while #diving, and need to surface for air periodically.โ€จโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Breathing occurs through a pair of #nostrils located on the top of the #nose. The manatee can close off its nostrils when diving in order to keep #water out.โ€จโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ € Manatees normally breathe every 2 to 5 minutes, but can stay #submerged for as long as 20 minutes if necessary. Like other marine mammals, when diving, a manatee may slow its #heart rate to as little as 20% of its normal rate, in order to #conserve #oxygen. โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ€จ- Don't wait for change, Be the change -โ€จโ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ €โ€จ๐Ÿ“ธ: @martin.strmiska
