Hundreds Of Whale Sightings Reported Of The Coast Off NYC Due To Cleaner Waters

Finally some good news! In 2010 there were a total of 5 whale sightings off the coast of NYC. That's right, five. Last year, the number of whales spotted was a staggering 272! That is a 540% increase in just 8 years! And almost all of the whales spotted have been humpbacks! This is such a wonderful triumph. And we have environmental policies such as the Clean Water Act, the Endangered Species Act to thank for that. 

Paul Sieswerda, once a curator at the New York Aquarium for over 20 years before starting Gotham Whale, says lessening the pollution in the Hudson River has also played a large part in this whale restoration. According to Pew Charitable Trust's Mid-Atlantic Conservation Project, the most important fish in the sea is the fish Menhaden - due to how many other sea animals eat them (including the humpback whale). And the Menhaden are attracted to tiny green algae, which the cleaner water at the Hudson river was able to provide. 

Sieswerda had this to say about the majestic giants of the sea, "The sheer size alone is incredible. They're like buses, and to think that's a living animal and to think that has the power and grace to completely jump out of the water when they breach is a spectacle that I think is unique to the animal kingdom."

Wildlife Photographer Photographs A Mouse Rescued From A Cat's Mouth (17 Beautiful Pics)

Meet Hannah Assil, wildlife photographer extraordinaire! As a biologists daughter, her path was clear, she was a bird and wildlife addict from the very start. And while her main focus is on birds, she couldn't help taking some pics of little Fridolin! Hannah gave a little insight to Fridolin's back story, "Fridolin didn't have the start a little mouse could wish for. Before he was even able to open his eyes, he and his mother found themselves in the mouth of a cat." And unfortunately, the mom didn't survive, but as luck would have it, little Fridolin was dropped by the cat and scooped up by a kid who witnessed the act. Thanks to that small act of kindness, Hannah Assil continues, "Fridolin grew fast and made the best of his second chance at life."

"I want people to focus on the beauty of our world in all of its aspects. Especially in times like these, where nature gets destroyed and extinctions of biological species happens, it's important to evoke the passion for nature in the hearts of humans," she told ICanHasCheezburger and some good solid advice, "Be like Fridolin: Enjoy the little things in life and take some time to smell the flowers."

If you're interested in learning more about Hannah Assil or want to purchase any prints, all info can be found on her website (it is in German but that's what 'Google Translate' is for)! Or follow her on Instagram and/or Facebook.

Thank you, Hannah, for sharing your art with the world! Hannah was able to take photos of little Fridolin twice, and the results were pure magic. See the beautiful photos below:

The non-traditional family trio is caring for three little baby eagles that hatched in a nest along the Mississippi River near Fulton, Illinois. Stewards of the Upper Mississippi River Refuge, set up the webcam in 2011, allowing the world watch the incredible interactions between the three, two males and a female, which is incredibly rare to see as males tend to be territorial. 

The eagles have also been named, the males go by Valor I and Valor II, and the female is named Starr. 

According to the Stewards of the Upper Mississippi Refuge, these birds have quite a back story, as well. The original trio was formed in 2013, when the female then chose a new mate, Valor II, and Valor I decided to stay throughout the breeding season. The original female was killed by another eagle in 2017, yet the two males stayed together and courted a new female after their first mate died. That female was Starr. And Here we are, two years later and three baby eaglets receiving extra love and care from a total of three parents.
