Earlier this month, a group of divers were presented with a unique opportunity to rescue a wild dolphin entangled in fishing line off the coast of Hawaii.

The Bottlenose dolphin, approached the group of underwater explorers during a night-time dive searching for manta rays and in a rare moment of mutual consent, the dolphin entrusted it’s human friends to help free it.

The footage was captured by Martina S. Wing (also known as the “Manta Woman”) owner of the touring company Ocean Wings Hawaii — explore their site further to learn more about the marine life of Kona, Hawaii.

Whilst, this story has a happy ending for many marnie animals the same cannot be said — with evermore pollution entering our oceans the risk to wildlife increases.

The treasures of the deep depend on our cooperation and consideration, please take the time to learn more about pollution and preserving our oceans.

A new bat named for its devilish appearance, a subterranean blind fish, a ruby-eyed pit viper, and a frog that sings like a bird are among 126 newly identified species from the Greater Mekong.

The subregion was formed by the Asian Development Bank in 1992 and unites the six states of the Mekong River basin: Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand, Vietnam, and the Yunnan Province of China.

However, the excitement of recent discoveries is overshadowed by habitat loss and illegal hunting which threaten the survival of all species in the area. Lost and found only to be lost once more to human pressures.

WWF and Conservation International are working to protect biodiversity and the undiscovered species of the area– so that one day, the true secrets of the Mekong may be revealed.

As dusk approaches, a different world awakens within the grounds of Melbourne Zoo.

I, Animal is a world-first interactive experience – part multi-media tour, theatrical experience, and animal encounter, designed for adults only at Melbourne Zoo.

Launching on 23 November 2012, I, Animal uses ground-breaking technology to take you on a remarkable, and surprisingly emotive, journey through the interior of Melbourne Zoo at night.

You will embark on an unexpected, provocative adventure that explores our pre-conceptions about the animal kingdom and questions the boundaries between human and animal.

Produced in collaboration with The Border Project, the experience uses an iPod touch application built specifically for the Zoo by Art Processors, the technical design team behind the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) and the ‘O’ device

Guided by your personal device, the “Zöe”, you will explore the Zoo at night, experiencing animal encounters, stories about the Zoo over its 150 years and the nature of the zoo’s most famous (and not so famous) residents, with theatrical moments that will surprise, move and delight you.

I, Animal is an exclusive, Melbourne only event held daily at Melbourne Zoo, Elliot Avenue, Parkville. Tickets cost $39 for General Admission and $35 for Zoo Members and Concession including students.
