When starting a puffin family, our colourful feathered friends dig out a burrow using their sharp claws and beak, usually in a grassy bank or rocky crevice. At the back of their burrow home, they build a nest lined with feathers and grass where the female lays her egg. Both parents take it in turn to incubate the egg for the next 36-45 days before the baby puffin hatches! ✌ 🌊

Happy World Whale Day! 💙 🐋 Giants of the ocean are celebrated on World Whale Day, which aims to raise awareness of these magnificent creatures. The annual holiday was founded in Maui, Hawaii, in 1980, to honour humpback whales, which swim off its coast. It’s the main showcase of the Maui Whale Festival. ✌ 🌊

Every year, crowds flock to the island to join in the free all-day event, organised by the Pacific Whale Foundation. The fun starts with a parade including floats, costumed characters and children’s events, plus music from Hawaiian and international stars. 📸 : Clément Brun

Scientists believe the colour pattern of killer whales may help them sneak up on and attack their prey. Their backs are black, and their stomachs are white. Animals looking down on this powerful predator from above, such as a seal on a chunk of ice, might not see it because the whale’s dark back blends with the water below. The killer whale’s white underside blends with the light streaming down into the ocean from the surface, making it hard to spot from below. Such amazing camouflage means prey like fish, penguins and seals are likely to miss the danger heading their way. Canny, eh?! 📸 : Clément Brun

Did you know turtles have an incredibly long life span? The oldest ever recorded, named Tu”i Malila, of Tonga Island, passed away at the grand old age of 188! 🐢 😍

The humpback whale diet includes a large amount of krill. Krill are a tiny marine animal, comparable to shrimp. It takes quite a lot of krill to make up the amount each whale needs on a daily basis – almost 1.5 tons! 📸 : Clément Brun

Mothers and their young swim close together, often touching one another with their flippers with what appear to be gestures of affection. Females nurse their calves for almost a year, though it takes far longer than that for a humpback whale to reach full adulthood. Calves do not stop growing until they are ten years old. ✌ 🌊 📸: Shutterstock

Elephants are excellent swimmers like all other mammals. The only mammals that have to learn to swim are humans and the primates. The pachyderm’s massive body, very surprisingly, gives them enough buoyancy to float easily. They swim completely submerged, with their head above the water and their mouths below, and use all four legs to paddle. The biggest advantage that elephants have above all other mammals is their trunk. A very versatile proboscis, they use their trunk like a snorkel. This enables them to breathe normally when swimming and allows them to swim long distances. ✌ 🌊 📸: Shutterstock Big thank you to all the incredible elephant charities protecting these wonderful animals!

Taeniura lymma, or bluespotted ribbontail stingray as it is most commonly known, is  a favorite for many divers, but don’t let the bluespotted ray fool you with its cute looks, its large yellow eyes peeping upwards from its oval-shaped body and angular front snout. Not mere decoration, those bright blue spots are meant to warn off predators and indicate that it’s venomous. The ray’s short tail, a little less than twice its body length, features blue stripes running along either side, and towards the end it features a stinging spine. It’s this feature that transforms this animal from an initial impression of a cute little ray to a fierce predator of the sea.✌ 🌊

The jellyfish itself provides a tasty meal for other ocean creatures, particularly sea turtles, who like to guzzle them up regularly. In some cultures around the world, people eat jellyfish, too. In China, they are considered a delicacy, and are also used in Chinese medicine. ✌ 🌊

Did you know? Humpbacks are known for singing loud, complex “songs” – lasting up to 30 minutes long! The sounds they make are the most varied in the animal kingdom, ranging from high-pitched squeals and whistles to low, rumbling gurgles. Only males “sing” and experts think they do it to attract females and to let other males know they’re in the area. 📸 : Clément Brun

For a hungry barnacle, the rim of a Humpback whale’s nostril isn’t a bad place to be. When the whale swims through a cloud of tasty plankton for a snack, the barnacle - which also feeds on the tiny, floating organisms - gets free room service. All it has to do is extend its feathery, filtering arm and wait. 📸 : Clément Brun
