Hello friends from the underwater world!🐬
We are a new community that will continue to do our best to showcase and bring quality posts that highlight the importance of our underwater world🐟. We appreciate your posts! It has been very pleasant to read in detail all the information it contained. Curations are handpicked on behalf of the Aquatic Sentinels Community.
The aquatic environment offers us a totally different world from the one we know normally. Only in the sea we find thousands of described species and possibly there are many others to discover.
Aquatic and marine life offers us multiple topics of interest:
👉Relationship with human beings
👉 ...and many others!
Remember that the Aquatic Sentinels Community Purpose is:
"Share the underwater world with everyone🦀"
That is, working together, where both Aquatic Sentinels and our subscribers can share quality information in favor of aquatic species and their ecosystems.
We are pleased to present the publications that have received curation in this past 3 months, the authors have done an incredible job sharing with us very valuable information:

"I have seen dolphins, turtles, snakes and fish as well as various other marine life. but one day a few years back i came upon a dead animal i did not recognize, though perhaps it may be some type of eel. it was well over a meter long. i was wondering if anybody here might help identify what it is.."
👁🗨Aquatic Sentinels made the final identification: Neophocaena phocaenoides (Indo-Pacific finless porpoise)🐬

"Las estrellas de mar, son muy conocidas y al mismo tiempo no, la razón son objeto de admiración y en ocasiones sacadas de sus aguas para tomarse fotografías con ellas, pero muchas personas desconocen tanto de ellas, lo primero es que erróneamente se les cree un pez cuando en realidad son equinodermos.

"I always thought its fun to watch them when they would all burrow under the sand with just one step and crawl their way out again and "run" once they wouldn't feel any movement anymore. As I grew up I never really bothered what they specifically are, all I knew was that they were just "crabs" and boy, I was wrong. I did a little of research and got to know more about these little crustaceans scientifically known as Mictyris longicarpus but I think its best to stick with its common name: Light-Blue Soldier Crabs.

"Innovation in different areas could help change plastic use patterns in the future, however, they are not a solution to spreading waste, while prevention, waste management and public awareness are, and more so now that one of the most serious environmental effects of the pandemic is the sudden increase in demand and use of plastic products, and plastic waste production is expected to increase after the pandemic due to hygiene concerns and the recovery of economic activity.

"Many animals need the oceans to fulfill their biological cycle, for example seabirds like pelicans, gulls need these waters to fish and feed! other animals such as poliferos are permanent inhabitants that serve as a habitat for other animals!😨😨.
