Great White Sharks are not ssen too often in the Pacific Ocean near San Francisco, that is until now. This year, the US Coast Guard found a school of 20 sharks 100 yds offshore of some popular beaches. Their presnece this far North is probably due to warmer than normal sea temperatures, which are changing the fish distribution extents in the Pacific.

The new Canadian Federal government will be great for Canadian Ocean Science and Conservation as the Liberal majority in power has promised to restore Canada's Oceans, Climate, and Environmental protection policies to the Internationally lead policies they once were - before the Conservation government scrapped them all for oil and gas favoured policies.

In today's episode, I discuss an article by the Tiffany & Co. Foundation describing how it has donated $10 million to various Ocean Conservation projects. The author of the article, Anisa Costa, encourages other businesses to take the initiative and conserve the Ocean in their own way.

Blue whales are massive and extraordinary marine mammals. They are the largest marine mammals on the planet and with that title comes the burden of exerting energy to feed vs keeping your energy to move. Researchers have recently found that Blue Whales only exert energy to feed when krill (their food source) patches are dense and choose not to feed when krill are found in small numbers.
