Whales + Dolphins - mammals in our oceans

More and more RECORDs are broken! Earth needs an environmental balance!
Whales - Dolphins - Cetaceans
Cetaceans are marine mammals
Whales are NO fish - they give birth.
Whales have to breath in air
Whales can hear much better than humans
Whales use different languages
Whales care for each other
Whale babies have to learn the language
Whale mothers are very good care takers
Whales hunt together
Conservation education online: baleen whales are the giants among the whales cetaceans. Baleen whales filter the food using baleen plates as sieves
Baleen plates of a cetacean
Humpback whales Megaptera novaeangliae, a marine mammals known for their majestic and alluring underwater mating songs and acrobatic breaches, have shown that they can adapt to changing prey variability by passing on new hunting techniques to each other. Photo shows Humpback whale breaching in the northern Atlantic. Whales and dolphins are part of BSB Nature Conservation + Nature education program, many whales are endangered mammals of the sea

Whales and dolphins belong to the order Cetacea. Cetus is Latin, but the Greeks have given the name ketos meaning, "large sea animal". Marine biologists who study whales, porpoises and dolphins, work in Cetology.
Cetaceans are marine mammals, not fish, best adapted to aquatic life. The body of a cetacean has flippers, flukes, the mouth baleen or teeth. Cetaceans are nearly hairless, but are well insulated by blubber, a fatty substance under the skin.
Below we show you a few slides out of our 200-slides-lecture
Whales + Dolphins
It is a 55 minute lecture with all the facts about Whales + Dolphins
The more we know about ocean life the better we can understand the problems of over-fishing.

BSB ocean education online on Whale conservation: Earth's largest animals are sometimes born with a leg or two. This is startling genetic reminder of the time, about 50 million years ago, when whale's ancestors walked on dry land. All marine life including whales and dolphins are part of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation education programs
Conservation education on sea mammals: More than 80 living species of mammals are classified as whales =  cetaceans -from ketos, the Greek name for sea monster or huge fish. What did the first whales look like? A series of fossil discoveries has unveiled   whales distant past. Paleontologists can trace the most colossal animals ever to appear on Earth step-by-step back to whale beginnings early in the Eocene epoch, often referred to as the dawn of the age of mammals, which lasted from 55 million to 34 million years ago - many mammals belong to the cetaceans - animals that need to breath in air, no fish - we need cetacean to balance our oceans. B+S+B tries to protect all marine life including marine mammals as whales and dolphins with nature protection, nature conservation, nature education classes, lectures and presentations
80 species of mammals are classified as whales:
There are whales with teeth = toothed whales - all dolphins have teeth
and there are baleen whales

Our oceans and the whales that live in there are endangered.
If our oceans die, many humans will also die. Even now, whales are still being slaughtered, even now dolphins + whales still end up in dragnets. Greater impurification = pollution reduces the numbers of ocean creatures, reducing the sources of nourishment which multitudes of humans have utilized for many thousands of years.

To be sure, most of the nations of the Earth united in asserting an international prohibition of whale-hunting, although Japan, Norway and the Russians persist in their practice of slaughtering whales.
Also yet today in Denmark's Faroe Islands, year after year Grind-whales are still slaughtered in great numbers.
Iceland also continues whale-hunting under the cover claim of science during which time 14000 whales were killed 'for purposes of scientific research..'

What is happening in Europe?

Ever more fishing fleets are outfitted with malicious drag-nets, in whose meshes the mammals *drown*, because they cannot swim up to the surface to breath in air.

Six hundred Italian ships put to sea each year in the Mediterranean to catch swordfish - but only 18% of the animals killed in their nets are swordfish. 82 % among which 8000 striped dolphins per year constitute so-called "by-catch" or 'collateral damage'.
These mammals, found hanging either dead or critically injured in the nets, are simply tossed back into the ocean.

International Nature conservation organizations are attempting to close ranks into a global network against this senseless murder of our oceans.

We try to give nature-lovers the chance to visit whales and dolphins in their "home" habitat -in our oceans.

Whales and dolphins have developed their brains for thirty million years - much longer than humans.
Let us pose the question:
What damage have whales during the thirty million years of their "conscious" existence on earth caused?
Were it not for humans, would the seas still be as they once were - populated by beings - living alongside one another in a natural balance.

Ships' radar and channel-tunnels, hydrofoils and Echo location systems, which disturb the sensitive orientation systems of whales, contribute heavily to the stranding of many whales and dolphins which are often crushed by their own weight.

Humans have long reported encounters with dolphins which, if unexplainable, are undoubtedly abundant. Repeatedly and persistently, reports are heard from diverse witnesses that they have experience feelings of overall emotional turmoil, joy, elation, and/or mortal sadness --
however, in all cases 'different' after such an encounter.

It is indisputably true that an extraordinary affinity has existed, indeed since darkest prehistory,
between dolphins and humans.
There have even been intense friendships recorded between individual, free-living dolphins and humans.

There have been countless reports from mariners who were warned of reefs or otherwise rescued from other dangers.

Well-known also are many cases from all over the world of drowning humans carried to shore by dolphins.
It has also been attested that dolphins behave totally differently with pregnant women or mentally-impeded children than with otherwise 'normal' humans.
And in the long history of relations between dolphin and human, it has never been reported that a human was attacked by a dolphin, or was killed by one.
Dolphins have a special intelligence, one which we humans have until today not comprehended, since "intelligence" is purely a human concept which primarily has to do with human understanding, with human "thinking."
Humans can communicate with dolphins and whales, especially dolphins are learning fast, but, unfortunately most humans don't try to understand these air-breathing occupants of the sea.

Fin whale, a big baleen whale swimming in the Pacific ocean. Marine mammals as whales, dolphins are part of Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation programs. The order Cetacea includes the marine mammals commonly known as whales, dolphins, and porpoises. Cetus is Latin and is used in biological names to mean whale; Ancient Greek any huge fish or sea monster.  Cetology is the branch of marine science associated with the study of cetaceans. Cetaceans are the mammals best adapted to aquatic life. The body of a cetacean is fusiform. The forelimbs are modified into flippers. The tiny hindlimbs are vestigial; they do not attach to the backbone and are hidden within the body. The tail has horizontal flukes. Cetaceans are nearly hairless, and are insulated from the cooler water they inhabit by a thick layer of blubber. Some species are noted for their high intelligence

Did you know?
The biggest rental truck a is typically 26 feet and has a max load of 7,400 lbs. A newborn Blue Whale, the largest baby in the world, will just barely fit as their average length is 25 feet and average weight is 6,000 lbs. they gain an average of 200 lbs. a day and will double in size in about 7 months! An adult blue whale weighs up to 200 tons and can be over 100 feet long!
Whale calls are often in the 155 to 188 decibel range. A big diesel moving truck is about 100 decibels. A jet engine from 100 feet away is 130 decibels. If you were to stand directly near a jet engine at full throttle, it would be about 155 decibels and would cause major hearing damage and perhaps permanent hearing loss.

Think about and see how wonderful our Earth was created..
Learn to understand = having a better life!

Spain offers little to inform people how to keep earth beautiful - - - Indonesia cuts down a lot of trees. Missing nature conservation education leads to deforestation, water contamination, erosion problems because of deforestation, endangering marine life and humans - - - China has a growing population, more energy, more food, nature conservation education is very low on the to do list - - - India is a country full of potential. With a better education system and less corruption India could become number 1 in Asia - - - German schools offer conservation education, but a lot of people are too busy to learn new things
Peter Bonenberger + Marianne Bonenberger provide fun-filled multimedia lectures about earth's natural environment

Better in-depth knowledge helps us preserve
and not to destroy Earth - as we know it -

A good environmental education helps us to understand Nature
and to deal with coming changes + challenges.
