What Paul Nicklen had to say about these picture: "The only thing that needs to be changed in that post is that a leopard seal is not one of Antarctica's most vicious predators. A leopard seal is a just another animal that is part of a complex ecosystem who is trying to survive. Leopard seals eat penguins and penguins eat krill. Penguins are not listed as vicious. Unfortunately, we are the only predator who is truly vicious." Paul Nicklen's page www.facebook.com/Paul-Nicklen-Photography-128942563363/ ~Weirdest Facts Admin

REGIONAL TRAINING DAYS These new regionally-organised Diver Training Days could help you work towards or complete your Diver Grade training. The idea is that you book on the event and (when prompted) let the organisers know which lessons you need to complete. The Regional Teams will offer each student at least two open water lessons per day. It’s hoped that this will help to take some pressure off the branches that are short of instructors, or offer a catch up opportunity for students who have missed their scheduled lessons. Please note: - After booking on, when promoted, let the organisers know which lessons you need to complete. - Please make sure you take your Qualification Record Book (QRB) along with you so any lessons can be signed off. - These are training days are a new initiative to support clubs and members. Please email the Diver Resources Team with any feedback on these new days. If you have any questions about these new days please email the Diver Resources Team at BSAC HQ. Or you could call them on 0151 350 6203. Or go to link to book on: www.bsac.com/page.asp?section=4958&sectionTitle=Diver+Training+Days

This morning lawyers for BSAC member Stephen Martin were advised that all charges have been dropped by the Maltese Authorities, following a visit to the Island’s Attorney General by the British Sub-Aqua Club, last week. It brings to an end a horrific nightmare for Stephen who could have faced up to ten years in prison if he had been found guilty in Malta. Stephen was charged last July with two counts of involuntary homicide, following the deaths in Gozo in June 2014 of Larissa Hooley and Nigel Haines, despite the fact a UK inquest had concluded in February 2015 that they died due to a diving accident. Speaking of his relief today Stephen said: “I am overwhelmed. This has been an utter nightmare for me, and I am just so relieved it is over. I feel I can finally start grieving for Larissa and Nigel, I just can’t keep back the tears. “I would like to thank everyone who has supported me over the last 12 months – I have been overwhelmed by the support of divers in the UK and worldwide and for all the efforts that have been made on my behalf to get these charges overturned. “BSAC have also been really been fantastic. It’s a great example of how they look after their members, and I can’t thank them enough.” BSAC chief executive Mary Tetley said: “First of all I would like to extend our sympathies from all at the British Sub-Aqua Club to the families of Larissa Hooley and Nigel Haines. “This was a tragic accident and Stephen is among the many who are still grieving their loss. “I would like to thank the Malta Tourism Authority for facilitating the crucial meeting with the Attorney General. The decision today brings to an end the horrendous ordeal which Stephen has suffered since he was charged, and we are both delighted and relieved for him.” Stephen’s solicitor in the UK, Edward Elwyn Jones of Hodge Jones and Allen Solicitors described the charge as “bizarre” because it was not at all clear how the Maltese authorities proposed to prove that Stephen had actually caused the deaths of Larissa and Nigel. He said: “We received notification from the UK Crown Prosecution Service this morning that the European Arrest Warrant for Stephen Martin had been withdrawn “I have also received notification from the Attorney General in Malta that the intended prosecution will no longer be proceeded with. This brings to an end a long and painful nightmare for Stephen. “It is rare for an extradition request to be withdrawn. Often when they are it is as a result of lobbying outside the courtroom and BSAC are to be commended for the work they have done to highlight Stephen’s plight at the highest level.” Stephen’s MP Sir Peter Bottomley who has also been supporting his case, said: “I’m grateful to the Maltese Attorney General for meeting with BSAC and reviewing the case and to Stephen’s lawyer Ed Jones. “I also pay tribute to the British Sub-Aqua club and Stephen’s lawyer Ed Jones for their efforts in this case.”

Severe weather warnings for #snow and #wind have been issued for Friday into Saturday. A major (but temporary) change of weather type will see the winds swing into a more northerly direction, pulling down much colder air across the whole of Britain. A snow warning has been issued as wintry showers could spread to many northern areas with 1-4 cm likely at some lower levels and 5-10 cm on higher ground. A warning for wind has also been issued as wind gusts of 50-60 mph are likely. Could you be affected? Check your forecast at bit.ly/KKztCZ

BABIES!!!
... See MoreSee Less

CWR Press Release: New Calf in L pod! L122! Today there was another new baby in the L pod! L91 was first seen near Sooke, BC this morning with a very newborn calf, confirmed a few hours later by Mark Malleson off Victoria, BC and CWR staffers, Dave Ellifrit and Melissa Pinnow, and by colleagues Drs. John Durban, Holly Fearnbach, and Lance Barrett-Lennard. These latter colleagues happened to be in the area conducting a sequel to CWR aerial measurements of all of the SRKW’s (Southern Resident Killer Whales), this time with a very sophisticated hexacopter (Unmanned Aerial System - UAS, or drone). The measurements were accomplished on the US side of the border as Dave and Melissa took numerous identification photographs from the research vessel “Orca” at a respectful distance. The new calf is designated L122, and is the fifth new baby to come into the population since December, 2014. The mother and baby and other L pod whales spent the afternoon and evening in Haro Strait ‘fishing’, and by days end were joined by J and K pod members. In the forty year history of ORCA SURVEY, a long-term photo-identification study of this whale population the greatest number of calves born in a year was 9 in 1977, and there were none born that survived in 2013 or 2014. We hope this year’s ‘baby-boom’ represents a turn-around in what has been a negative population trend in recent years. The new baby photographs and measurements will be forthcoming.
