【オキゴンドウの赤ちゃんが誕生しました！】 2月13日にオキゴンドウの赤ちゃんが誕生しました。現在、親子で寄り添いながらマリンウェーブで暮らしていますが、授乳はまだ確認できておりません。 今回、母親のオキゴンドウには育児を学べるよう、子育て中のバンドウイルカの親子(母親と10月11日生まれの赤ちゃん)と同じスペースにいる時間を設けました。オキゴンドウの飼育下での繁殖は大変難しく成功例は少ないですが、アドベンチャーワールド初となるオキゴンドウの育成につなげられるよう取り組んでまいります。 出生日：2019年2月13日(水) 午後0時15分誕生 性 別：不明 全 長：推定170cm 体 重：推定50㎏ ※赤ちゃんは現在マリンウェーブでご覧いただけます。(動物の体調により変更する場合がございます。) 親情報：父親 2003年12月搬入(推定20歳 野生個体) 母親 2006年9月搬入(推定16歳 野生個体) 詳しくは http://www.aws-s.com/pressrelease/pdf/190214_2.pdf ...

Dolphinaris announced Friday that preliminary necropsy results gave no indication on what caused the death of Khloe, the third of four dolphins that died in the company’s care since 2017 . Bodie: The male bottlenose dolphin died on Sept. 23, 2017, from a "rare muscle disease," the facility said. Alia: The female bottlenose dolphin died on May 22, 2017, from an "acute bacterial infection" that "spread quickly through her body," the facility said. Khloe: The female bottlenose dolphin died on Dec. 31, 2018. "Khloe came to Dolphinaris with a pre-existing chronic health condition caused by a parasite called Sarcocystis, which weakens an animal’s immune system. While we wanted the necropsy to tell us more, sometimes tests are not definitive. In fact, it is common that tests never pinpoint exactly what caused an animal’s passing, particularly one like Khloe who had lived with a health condition for six years," the facility said. Kai: The male bottlenose dolphin was euthanized on Jan. 31, 2019, after he showed signs of "difficulty swimming, eating and breathing" and his health continued to decline, the facility said. A necropsy (an animal autopsy) is pending and the results have not been released. The most recent death was reported when Dolphinaris announced that 22-year-old bottlenose dolphin Kai had to be euthanized on January 31. ... See more
Most of us who’ve seen killer whales have observed their behavior above the water, but what do the whales do below the surface? A new study from the Northwest Fisheries Science Center tracked the diving patterns of Southern Resident killer whales and discovered some surprising details about their foraging habits. Scientists were surprised to learn that males hunt more often than females, and that not all dives are successful in terms of catching prey. This study will help us better understand how much energy this endangered species spends on hunting for food, and how vessel noise might disturb foraging. #WhaleWeek This visualization of their data shows individual dives as colored lines on each of the depth/time charts. Blue lines represent successful attempts at catching prey and orange lines indicate an unsuccessful dive. https://www.nwfsc.noaa.gov/news/features/killer_whale_males/index.cfm ... See more
Amity, an Australian humpback dolphin, died on February 9, 2019 at Sea World Gold Coast (Australia). Captured in 1966, Amity was estimated to be 55 years old at the time of her death. She had lived at several marine parks in Australia including Marineland Australia and Jack Evans Pet Porpoise Pool (Tweed Heads) before moving to Sea World in 1979. "Sea World icon Amity died from old age on Saturday night, a Sea World spokesperson confirmed yesterday. ...Once believed to be an Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphin, Amity contributed to research that led to the discovery she was in fact an Australian Humpback dolphin." https://outline.com/yxRAJJ https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6698417/Heartbreak-Sea-Worlds-oldest-dolphin-Amity-dies-aged-55.html ...
