 Denmark stepped in to stop them

Warm pool wins sea lion's heart

A fun-loving young sea lion waddled through two sets of automatic doors, a reception area and a cafe to "swim laps" in a Dunedin public pool yesterday.
Stunned St Clair Hot Salt Water Pool staff and about 100 swimmers couldn't believe what they were seeing, but swimmers initially remained in the main pool after the laidback sea lion decided to sun himself near the toddlers' pool. Everyone left the water after the 1.5m animal took a dip mid-afternoon.
Department of Conservation conservation services manager David Agnew said the sea lion arrived at the pool's entrance in the morning and had a sleep.
"As the sun went around and it ended up in the shade it got up to move and the [pool entrance] doors opened. It let itself in."

Japan’s credibility for justifying their bogus scientific research whaling took another blow with recent statements issued by one of their “experts”
Especially amusing was this statement: “The expert attacked the criticism of his country's whaling programme claiming that the criticism is unfounded.”
Why it is amusing is that the “expert” is a man by the name of Glen Inwood and he is neither Japanese nor is he a scientist. He is in fact a New Zealander and a hired public relations flack. And he is not new. He’s being working for the Institute for Cetacean Research (The front group of the whaling industry) for over a decade.

New Baby Gives Imperiled Orcas a Happy New Year’s Surprise

Happy birthday baby!

Orca researchers monitoring an endangered population in the Pacific Northwest stumbled upon a happy surprise to kick off the new year when they discovered the birth of a calf.
The newborn was spotted on December 30 by Ken Balcomb and Dave Ellifrit from the Center for Whale Research, who were out observing members of the J pod off the Gulf Islands in British Columbia.
The birth has again raised hope for the future survival of this group of orcas, otherwise known as the southern resident killer whales, who live in three distinct pods (J, K and L).
The calf doesn’t have a name yet, but has been as designated J50 and was reported to be healthy and energetic.
