860-287910 - Pod of Sleeping sperm whale (Physeter macrocephalus) Researchers first saw this unusual sleep behavior in sperm whales in 2008. The scientists in that study found that sperm whales dozed in this upright drifting posture for about 10 to 15 minutes at a time, Vulnerable (IUCN). The sperm whale is the largest of the toothed whales. Sperm whales are known to dive as deep as 1,000 meters in search of squid to eat. Dominica, Caribbean Sea, Atlantic Ocean. Photo taken under permit n°RP 16-02/32 FIS-5.

857-86262 - A researcher holds a Barn Owl (Tyto alba) after it was captured from Vancouver International Airport. The bird will be relocated to an area 100km away from the airport in hopes that it will not return, Langley, British Columbia, Canada
857-32785 - Jennifer Carroll, oyster hatchery manager and researcher at Center of Marine Biotechnology, Baltimore MD.She is holding a diploid Asian oyster C. ariakensis in the "algae kitchen" in the biosecure laboratory. She is studying reproduction to determine whether to introduce into the bay.
857-37193 - Research assistants and technicians from the University of Ghana collect dust samples from the living rooms and bedrooms of children in Accra, Ghana. The samples will be analyzed for the presence of dust mites, fungus', and animal allergens to help researchers better understand why children in wealthier homes have higher rates of allergies and asthma than poorer children. The leading theory is that higher rates of helminth (parasite) infections among poorer children are affecting the immune system in a way that offers protection from allergies and asthma. The study aims to find out what the worms are doing, isolate the beneficial effect and replicate it.

988-169 - Harbour porpoise (Phocoena phocoena) caught in herring weir (fish trap). Porpoises trapped in herring weirs often die as a result of efforts to remove them (by 'seining' the weir as shown here) but latterly cooperation between fishermen and researchers has improved the situation. Five porpoises were trapped in this weir and none were thought to have survived this operation. Grand Manan, Bay of Fundy, Canada
988-168 - Minke whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata) caught in creel line. Minke whales are occasionally caught in the lines connecting lobster pots (creels) and will drown if not released promptly. This creel fishermen helped researchers untangle this dead whale from another fisherman's gear. Hebrides, Scotland
