-From Today’s New York Times, a piece about Orcas in captivity.  I am pleased to see increased awareness about this important issue.  These beautiful and intelligent apex predators belong in the ocean, not at Sea World.  For more reading on this topic, check out Death at Sea World by David Kirby.

-A fascinating video from a deep ocean ROV showing a bizarre, membranous sea creature.  What in the world is it?  Care to guess?

While it looks like a creature from a Star Trek episode, it is really a type of jellyfish called Deepstaria Enigmatica.

-Don’t forget to check out my Pinterest page for loads of beautiful underwater photos, info on remote Pacific Islands and Atolls, dive and snorkel travel ideas (fancy a visit to a private island?) and ideas for the conservation-minded.
