  • We thought your #Monday needed some baby polar bears. 💙 Did you know that female polar bears typically give birth to twin cubs? These cubs weigh no more than a few pounds at birth! Young cubs stay with their mothers for more than two years to learn the survival skills of the harsh environment in which they live. But polar bears need our help now more than ever.

  • Safe travels, baby turtle! Did you know that many species of sea turtles travel extremely long distances during their lifetime? Where do YOU want to travel to this summer? Let us know in the comments.

  • Take a look at the uniquely beautiful spotted eagle ray. Spotted eagle rays live along the open coast in warm waters throughout the world, though they are often associated with coral reefs and sometimes enter protected bays to feed or mate. They are generally considered a coastal species, but the worldwide geographic distribution implies that some individuals must migrate far distances over deep water. #FishyFriday

  • It’s #FishyFriday! What’s a better way to celebrate then to spend the day highlighting these colorful ocean inhabitants? We’re kicking things off with arguably one of the most iconic coral reef species – the common clownfish.

#DidYouKnow that, like all clownfishes, this species changes sex throughout its lifetime? While sex change is not particularly rare, most species change from female to male, the clownfish actually changes from male to female. If anything happens to the female clownfish while protecting her eggs, the reproductive male will change sex to become the dominant female. Learn more interesting facts about clownfish in our encyclopedia at OCEANA.ORG/MARINE-LIFE .

  • #URGENT: Gray whales are dying in near record numbers on North American shores this year. In 2019 alone, 152 gray whales have been found dead since beginning their annual spring migration north. The crisis is already so severe that NOAA has declared it an unusual mortality event. Sadly, many of these whales are emaciated, which is a clear sign they could not find enough food to survive their 10,000-mile migration.
