We can learn a lot from nature. Organisms and ecosystems accomplish mind-blowing feats every day. By watching, learning, and mimicking their success, we can help Keep Tahoe Blue.
Have you ever seen a humpback whale go fishing? Well, they don't use a pole and bait. They blow “nets” made of tiny bubbles to corral their prey.
HOW IT WORKS: A whale locates a shoal of fish and swims upward in a spiral, emitting streams of tiny bubbles from its blowhole that encircle the fish and drive them to the surface. Once the fish are trapped, other members of the whale’s hunting party swim up through the bubble net for a delicious meal.
