Happy hump(back ) day! This little humpback calf is frolicking next to its mom in the calving grounds off Gabon, West Africa. SnotBot collected valuable data about this population, about which not much is known,, during an expedition in 2018. #SnotBot #sUAS #conservation #innovation #research #humpday #humpbackday #humpback #whale #drone #dronesforwhaleresearch #dronesforgood #oceanhealth #marinemammals #momandcalf #Gabon #Africa #WestAfrica

🤰🏻Mamãe Homo sapiens 🤱🏻 E para fechar a semana do "Matriarcado", nada melhor que uma homenagem às mamães humanas que têm suas reações instintivas afloradas desde o dia da descoberta de que em seu ventre se desenvolve uma vida. E que loucura!! Um laço físico e emocional no qual não existem palavras para expressar o tamanho do sentimento e das emoções envolvidas numa gestação e, principalmente no ato de parir. Desejamos amor transcendental a todas as guerreiras que colocam sua vida em segundo plano para suprir as necessidades de seu filho. Nosso sincero parabéns! #happymothersday #mothersday #diadasmaes #amormaterno #matriarcado #issoemardeideias #partonatural #instintomaterno #maternalinstincts #momandcalf #mae

🐳 Mamãe baleia franca 🐳 Depois de fazer uma longa jornada da Antártica até águas brasileiras, as mamães baleias francas (Eubalaena australis ) procuram por águas tranquilas e mais quentinhas (ou menos geladas!! ) para ter seus filhotes. A migração das francas dura alguns meses, e mesmo grávidas, as fêmeas não comem nada durante todo o período de migração, parição e amamentação. São mais de 6 meses sem comer nadinha! A gordura armazenada por ela é convertida em leite para nutrir o filhote. A gestação dura 12 meses e o bebê nasce com cerca de 4,5 toneladas e 5 metros. Nasce somente um filhote por vez e a cada três anos. Sendo assim ele requer muito leite para crescer forte e saudável. Filhotes chegam a mamar cerca de 50 litros por dia. Todo esse alimento faz com que fiquem aptos a voltar com sua mãe até a Antártica no final da temporada reprodutiva (jun – out/nov ) onde será a vez dela se alimentar. Além do longo e exaustivo trajeto que a mamãe grávida faz até escolher o local ideal para parir, ela passa por muitos obstáculos como redes de pesca, barcos e ainda pode encontrar machos inoportunos que tentam acasalar com ela. Mães e filhotes frequentemente permanecem em áreas próximas a costa, onde encontram mais sossego. Nestas águas rasas, a mamãe ensina saltos, batidas de nadadeira caudal, peitoral e outros movimentos que irão auxiliar o filhote na migração junto com a ela, deixando-o forte e preparado também para os possíveis obstáculos que encontrarão no caminho de volta para Antártica. Uma mãe exemplar, que dá show na criação de seu baby! Dedicação, amor supremo, força e cuidado parental sem igual! Que belo matriarcado! E os machos? Bem, enquanto elas dão duro criando o filhote, os machos buscam freneticamente as fêmeas solitárias e disponíveis para deixar os próximos descendentes. Um papel também importante no ciclo de vida da espécie. #southernrightwhale #baleiafranca #baleiafrancaaustral #issoemardeideias #conservac ̧ão #natureza #nature #conservation #wildlife #momandcalf #rotadabaleiafranca #baleia #lovewhales #whalebaby #mothersday

Couldn’t ask for a better mama cow. While the others eat, she patiently watches over newborn calf. Great work mama!! . Calves are now being born each day here at the ranch. I’ve been busy shipping beef out today but hope to get y’all some more calve footage later this week!! . #calvingseason #momandcalf #goodmama #farmranchlife #ranchlife #birthtobutcher #blackangus #coloradobeef #betterwithbeef #eaglerockranch .

#Repost @savethewhalesca @download .ins --- Repost from @brianskerry - Photo by @BrianSkerry A Humpback whale calf plays alongside its resting mom in the waters of the South Pacific. Humpback moms invest a lot into their offspring, with a gestation that lasts nearly a year and then spends the first year of the calf’s life teaching it all the skills it will need to survive in the sea. These bonds are strong and are an important element of whale culture. It is a privilege to be in the water and experience a scene like this. The tenderness and depth of feeling between mom and calf is palpable. Our planet is filled with such moments, we simply have to look ... #whales #humpbackwhales #pacific #momandcalf #whaleculture #crocettiomareditore #coe

That’s right y’all! It’s #whalewednesday again!!! There’s nothing quite like being in such close proximity to these absolutely incredible animals! The mom is about 35/40 ft and this baby is probably about 15ft! The baby will drink about 100-150 gallons of milk a day according to the smithsonian. . . . . . #humpback #humpbackwhale #whale #momandcalf #silverbank #whalesofinstagram #babywhale #silverbank #inspirational #ocean #oceaninspired #beautiful #takemeback

This whale decided to go right next to/under my kayak. It was an incredible and intense experience as I could have reached out to touch the mother. My heart still flutters when I watch this video. #hawaiianpaddlesports #guidelife #ilovemyjob #closeencounters #cantwaittogetbackoutthere * * * #hawaiiwhales #mauikayakadventures #mauiwhales #humpbacks #humpbackwhale #momandcalf #whaletail #hawaiilife #whalelove #whalewatching #whales #wildlife @hawaiianpaddlesports

Photo by @brianskerry | A humpback whale calf swims above its mom as two male escorts follow along in the waters off the Cook Islands. They had spent a few days in the shallow, protected waters around the islands and were heading out to open sea. Humpback moms invest a lot in their offspring, with a gestation that lasts nearly a year. A mom spends the first year of the calf’s life teaching it all the skills it will need to survive in the sea. These bonds are strong and are an important element of whale culture. This population of humpbacks feed in Antarctic waters during the summer, then migrate to the South Pacific in winter to have their calves. Being allowed into the world of these animals is a privilege and never ceases to be exhilarating for me! Coverage from my ongoing project for @natgeo .

Calf time! He seems to be ready for his close up. The two aren’t on exhibit for the public just yet, but he’s spending each morning in the yard with mamma Mikki before the Zoo opens. We are getting closer! Stay tuned here and our website for all things calf including when you can see them for the first time and a naming contest. #mikkiandcalf #mikkisjourney #calf #momandcalf #endangeredspecies #wearelouzoo #louisvillezoo #louzoo50

Photo by Brian Skerry @brianskerry | A sperm whale calf swims below her mom in the waters of the eastern Caribbean Sea. With the largest brain of all animals on Earth, they are also our planet’s largest predator. They were portrayed as monsters for centuries, but researchers today are learning that these animals and their societies are far more complex than ever believed. Sperm whale families share unique dialects, parenting techniques, and other elements of culture.
