Whale and Dolphin Behavior - Understanding Whale and Dolphin Behavior
Whales, dolphins and porpoises, are difficult to observe in the wild. They spend most of their time fully submerged. But on occasion, cetaceans do pop out of the sea for a moment or two and a whole vocabulary has emerged to described the things they do during these brief surface visits.

A Guide to the Cnidarians: Basics and Beyond
Cnidarians are diverse and come in many shapes and sizes but there are some basic anatomical features that most members of the group share in common.

Cnidarians - Radial Symmetry
Cnidarians are radially symmetrical. This means that their gastrovascular cavity, tentacles, and mouth are aligned such that if you were to draw an imaginary line through the center of their body, from the top of their tentacles through the base of their body, you could then turn the animal about that axis and it would look roughly the same at each angle in the turn.

They feed on fruits, mushrooms, nuts, ants and flowers. Although little data has been collected about their wild population trends, conservationists fear the species is declining as a result of habitat destruction and hunting for bushmeat. Page 4.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
In early November, female Adelie penguins lay two light-green eggs and the parents take turns incubating the egg and foraging for food in the sea. Page 2.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
Adelie penguins are known to form large colonies, sometimes consisting of more than 200,000 pairs of birds. They breed on rocky coasts and islands where each mating pair constructs a nest made out of stones. Page 9.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
The Adelie penguin is the most familiar of all Antarctic penguin species. The Adelie was named after Adélie d'Urville—the wife of French polar explorer, Dumont d'Urville. Adelies are on average smaller than all other species of penguins.

Adelie penguins inhabit rocky coasts, ice floes, and islands along the coastline of Antarctica. They forage in the waters surrounding Antarctica. Their distribution is circumpolar. Page 7.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
Adelie penguins feed mostly on Antarctic krill but also supplement their diet with small fish and cephalopods. Page 6.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
Since the Adelie population is dependent on the abundance of krill in the seas surrounding Antarctica, scientists use these birds as an indicator species to gauge the health of the waters around the earth's southernmost landmass. Page 5.

Adelie Penguin Picture - Picture of an Adelie Penguin
The Adelie penguin population is considered stable and is perhaps increasing. Birdlife International estimates that there are between 4 and 5 million adult Adelie penguins. Page 10.
