"These advertisements address different types of issues, but they’re all about giving a voice to the voiceless. Most of us love animals, and yet we remain ignorant of or apathetic towards the abuse of domestic or circus animals or the extinction, poaching and over-harvesting of wild populations."
I love this so much

When you have them in a concrete tank, these are very acoustic animals which means that they rely very heavily on their hearing. We rely so heavily on our vision and on our sight, we can’t really understand that. They have perfectly good vision but they’re completely sonic creatures, their echo location, their passive listening is just far superior to ours. And so to put them into a concrete environment where it is very monotone and there’s simply no variety, no texture, no substance, no depth to the environment why use their echo location, they know where the four walls are, it’s an extremely limited environment.
There’s nothing in the tank, there’s no fish, there’s no algae, there’s no anything and so, it’s not that they can’t use their echo location in a concrete tank, it’s—why use it? They know exactly the limits of their environment so there’s no point to it and I think it’s a terrible thing to take away from them.- Dr. Naomi Rose

Back flip of a wild orca (Orcinus orca) in the waters off Norway. This young female did the same breach three times close to our boat. I have never ever seen a breach like that from a wild orca. I cannot recall any picture taken of such a breach in the wild. The second time she breached, I was able to capture the reflection of the female on the still water of the sea which was like a mirror. It is one of my best memories in my photographing experience.
