|ALL deviations - photographs and illustrations - submitted to this group are definitely favourites! Do enjoy each and every one!|
|Incredibly fantastic cetacean shots submitted by members of this special group that truly care about cetaceans and their welfare!|
Welcome to the group! As you can see from the name, as well as from the avatar, the main focus is on cetaceans – whales, dolphins, and porpoises – that live in their natural habitats. Those of you that truly care about cetaceans are most welcome to share your interest by submitting photographs and/or news accounts of what you’ve seen and heard about wild cetaceans. Since there are so many species that live in the oceans, rivers, lakes, waterways, estuaries, and other large bodies of water, our knowledge and understanding of whales, dolphins, and porpoises will definitely be enhanced through this group.
You are strongly encouraged to pass on visual/written information not only about cetaceans in their respective home environments, but regarding cetaceans that strand on beaches, shallow waters, or other areas where they cannot truly free themselves back into their habitats. Sharing photographs and/or progress reports on small cetaceans that are in rehabilitation and/or ready to be released back into the open waters is also encouraged. Since there may be some cetaceans that are in such bad shape to be rescued, the dissemination of information on these precious cetaceans will be greatly appreciated.
Most of all, this group is open to those of you that truly treasure cetaceans that live in the wild and are interested in their welfare!
You are most welcome to join as members and/or watchers. I will definitely look forward to hearing from many of you as I continue to make progress here as a Founder!

I would like to introduce myself. My name is Laurice, and I founded this group. Let me share a little bit about my background.
I must admit that my interests are so varied that I enjoy them all so very much!
One of the things that I truly love to do is photograph landscapes and seascapes. There are plenty of photos in my main dA gallery for you guys to look through. You will be able to get a good feel for all the photos that I've taken, as well as all the favorites that I've collected!
I have such great compassion for the welfare of marine wildlife, particularly cetaceans, sea turtles, sea birds, and penguins. I have been advocating on their behalf since they've faced all kinds of human threats that are quite harmful to their health and habitats. The on-going fight for their lives and their beautiful home environments will never end, and I am doing the very best I can as an ardent advocate. Cetaceans and other marine wildlife truly deserve to live their lives to the fullest and with a great deal of meaning.
I am dedicating this very special group, CetaceansFromTheSea, to all wild cetaceans that go about their lives in the open seas. My hope is that you will enjoy the photos and illustrations of the most precious creatures!
P.S. I also founded another group, SaveWildCetaceans, that is dedicated to all wild cetaceans and other sea life that never cease to be bombarded by all kinds of human threats that are quite disastrous to their lives and habitats. Members that are a part of this group lend their 'voices' through their photos, illustrations, and/or writings and participate in the fight against such human threats.
Please do check it out! I will be very happy to have you join my other group if you are interested.
