Iceberg – Symbol of All that is Pure and Wild

Russian scientists have been following what is the world’s only known All White Male Orca, most recently found in the North Pacific, east of the Kamchatka Peninsula near the Commander Islands.  He is male and his name is Iceberg. “In many ways, Iceberg is a symbol of all that is pure, wild and extraordinarily exciting about what is out there in the ocean waiting to be discovered”; Erich Hoyd, Far East Russia Orca Project.

In the mid-1940’s there was an all white female named Alice who lived for about 10 years around Race Rocks, off the coast of Victoria in BC.   Here is a clip of the lighthouse keeper at Race Rocks, Kurt Cehak, who watched her.  Here he shares a piece of his wonderful story of Alice.  It must have been a real treat for him to be so close to her and enjoy her visits.

The project currently undergo is called  FEROP, the Far East Russia Orca Project.  Iceberg is 16 years old, has a 2 meter white dorsal fin and most recently, has been traveling with a pod of a dozen normal black and white orcas. The team have not yet determined whether Iceberg has pink eyes, which would indicate whether he is true albino, or simply, a Pure White Orca.

This article explains how these genetics are possible for Orca albinos:

Just Love The Nature of Nature, Plastic Eating Pacman

Don’t you just Love The Nature of Nature?!  Wish we had discovered this little fella about a 150 years ago!  Biochemistry professor Scott Strobel, adventured to the jungles of Ecuador. Where his team discovered The Fungi, Pestalotiopsis microspora.  This Fungi is the first Fungi ever recorded discovered that can survive on a steady diet of polyurethane alone and…….do it in an anaerobic (oxygen-free) environment that is close to the condition at the bottom of a landfill.

This is The Greatest waste issue News we have Learned about in a long time!  Go Mother Earth!

Here is the Fella who apparently invented polyurethane, well, one of the Fathers of Modern Plastic anyway – Alexander Parkes….and what a string of a mess since then.

Buying items that do not have plastic packaging is a great start if you are new at being friendly to Mother Earth and Her inhabitants.  And recycling all else is good too.  When at the grocery store, bring your own cloth / cotton grocery bag and say goodbye to the other.  Some stores now offer biodegradable shopping carriers, and kitchen refuse.  You can buy them at Sobey’s outlets, Pharmasave, Zellers, and Thrifty Foods, but the Best buy is at The Soap Exchange where you can buy all kinds of other goodies too! http://www.victoriasoapexchange.com/products/garbage-bags

We ask you to purchase biodegradable only, and clean up our Oceans, Rivers and Lands.

Thanks!

 

340 Baby Penguins Released!

Thank you to The New Zealand Team of Compassionate Volunteers!  350 Tonnes of oil were spilled when a cargo ship ran aground last month off the coast of New Zealand.  A team of volunteers helped these little darlings and cleaned them off, releasing them today back into the wild waves of the Great Mama Ocean.  Here is a great video of the babes:
