It's as simple as that!

    Meeting the Yellow Eyed Penguin

    “Do the penguins know we’re here?” asks the little girl. “Yes, they do,” replies Dan, our tour guide and penguin expert. “But because we’re looking at them through such a small hole in the wall, the penguins can only see very little of us and so they think that we’re smaller than them and not a threat”.

    The Birds of the Seas

    The Dolphin is one of the most beautiful and lively marine creatures on this Earth. It sings underneath the Oceans of this world and jump out of the waters to ‘see’ the world we live in. They are graceful, sleek swimmers and can reach speeds of more than 18 miles an hour. They are playful and often frolic in a boat’s wake, leaping out of the water --- mainly for fun but also to communicate and shed pesky parasites.

    Dead whale mother

    Dead whale mother

    in Western Scheldt near Terneuzen, 'doomed young'. One of the whales that were seen swimming in the Western Scheldt on Sunday was washed up dead near Terneuzen on Monday. According to SOS Dolfijn, this is an adult bottlenose whale of six meters. Her cub is still swimming around, but is also doomed.“If the calf still drinks milk from the mother, there is no chance of survival,” explains Annemarie van den Berg of SOS Dolfijn to Hart van Nederland. "The only thing we can do is keep an eye on the calf and possibly put it out of its misery." That is why there is a call to watch out for the whale cub.Rare in the Netherlands

    Mosquitos are smarter than most people realize. They have four well-developed senses (sight, smell, taste, and hearing), a capacity for making decisions, and have developed flavour preferences — yes they like some of us more than others, based on how we taste.
