Dear Friends, I was very excited to read about a seven-year old girl named Skylar who is making necklaces to help save endangered animals. Skylar, who has raised over $1,000 to donate to the World Wildlife Fund, wants to be a Marine Bioligist and save endangered animals. You can read more about Skylar on WFSB. com. I know that there are children all over the world who love animals and are doing things to help protect them. If you are one of those kids, I would love to hear from you. You and your parents or teacher can write to me about what you are doing and I will post your story on my blog. Each of us can make a difference in the world, and your story might inspire other children to do things in their own communities to help protect wildlife. (Photo Source: WECT) If you want to be inspired by other Eco-Wonder kids and heroes like Skyler, watch this video IF I WERE A FISH about children in Belize who are helping to protect the ocean: [object type=application/x-shockwave-flash data=http://www.youtube.com/v/lVEmqT32fMI width=425 height=344] [param name=movie value=http://www.youtube.com/v/lVEmqT32fMI /] [param name=wmode value=transparent /] [param name=quality value=best /] [param name=scale value=noscale /][/object] While you're here on our blog, you can watch more Eco-Wonder Kids music videos to see what other children are doing to care for the earth.

Sad News about a Killer Whale named Rhapsody

Category: Animal Facts and Photos

Published: Tuesday, February 24, 2015

Dear Friends, I am writing to share the sad news of the death of Rhapsody, the killer whale we sing about in our song, Orcas. Rhapsody died in December 2014 at 18 years of age. It is believed that Rhapsody and her unborn calf died of starvation due to the declining population of their primary food source, Chinook salmon. What makes her death particularly tragic is that Rhapsody was one of the few remaining Southern Resident orcas of child-bearing age. It was hoped that Rhapsody would help grow the population of her endangered community of Orcas aka Killer Whales. (Photo-left- Rhapsody courtesy of The Whale Museum) Rhapsody's premature death has helped me more deeply understand the connections between our everyday actions (e.g. the food we eat) and the survival of the animals with whom we share our planet. When I asked my friends at The Whale Museum (on San Juan Island) what we could do to help these endangered killer whales, they recommended we stop eating Chinook salmon aka King salmon. They also asked me to share the informational postcard below with the fans and friends of Birdsong and the Eco-Wonders. Please take a few minutes to read it. I will always remember Rhapsody and I ask you to join me in remembering her the next time you listen to Orcas (from our CD EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED and Other Animal Songs for Kids). Thank you. Click here to listen and sing her song. Rhapsody's remaining family members are her aunt, Oreo and her cousins, DoubleStuf and Cookie of the Southern Resident JPod. -Learn more about Killer Whales when you watch our animal song video for kids, Orcas on a previous blog post. -WANT TO LEARN ABOUT OTHER ANIMALS WE LOVE? -Check out our fun animal song music videos for kids: octopus, dolphins, worms, butterflies, gray whales, wolves, tide pools, sea turtles, and pinnipeds and even more on Birdsong TV.

The Big Blue Whale and its tiny food source, Krill

Category: Animal Facts and Photos

Published: Tuesday, February 10, 2015

The Blue Whale and Its Position In The Food Chain The blue whale is the largest animal currently living on the planet, and is thought to be the heaviest animal that has ever existed. Blue whales are truly magnificent creatures, and the list of records that they top is truly mind boggling. Their hearts weigh as much as a standard car, their tongues weigh as much as an elephant. Despite their whopping size, however, the blue whale feasts on some of the smallest marine life in the food chain: krill. Krill are tiny invertebrate that are just 6cm long and bear an uncanny resemblance to shrimp. Every day the blue whale will eat an awe inspiring 3,6000kg of krill which they hunt by diving to depths of up to 500 meters and using their mouths as a unique tool to catch them. The whale's mouth is an amazing feat of mechanical engineering: Immediately inside its mouth is has a row of plates fringed with bristles designed to help to filter the krill from the water it intakes. At the end of each of these fringed plates is what resembles a moustache of long bristles to help it to hold on to its miniscule prey. The Blue Whales mighty mouth can hold up to 5,000kg of water and krill in any one hunting drive. Fascinating Krill Although they are small and not particularly interesting to look at, Krill have a massively important place in the food chain and without them almost all of the animals in the Antarctic (including the blue whale) would starve, and then simply disappear from our waters. Krill can live for up to ten years: an incredible feat given how heavily hunted they are, and during certain times of year, krill congregate in swarms so dense and widespread across the Antarctic ocean that they can actually be seen from space. Scientists estimate that there are so many krill in the Antarctic that the total weight of all the Antarctic krill in our oceans right now is more than the total weight of all humans on Earth. Because of this, it is massively worrying that since the 1970s, the numbers of krill living in the Antarctic has dropped by a huge 80 per cent. It is thought that this drop in numbers is because of the effects that global warming is having on the region: the Antarctic is thought to be the continent most dramatically affected by climate change. Climate change is causing much of the Antarctics ice regions to melt, leading to a drop in the numbers of ice-algae in the region. Ice-algae is krill's primary food source and without it, there simply won't be the numbers of krill available to sustain all of the animals that rely on it as their own food source and the focus of their survival.
