Comments Off on Mesmerizing white humpback whale spotted off the coast of Australia

Jump, Migaloo! In recent months, we’ve seen photographs of white giraffes and even a white moose . Now, footage has emerged of a rare white humpback whale, and nature enthusiasts can’t contain their excitement. The whale, named Migaloo (after the Aboriginal word meaning “white man”), was recently spotted off the coast of Sydney, Australia , – and he is just as majestic as you may expect. Migaloo was first spotted in 1990 and is believed to be around 30 years old. As National Geographic reports, it is unknown whether or not he has leucism (a condition which results in white or patchy skin, but the eyes remain dark) or is a true albino , meaning he doesn’t produce any pigment at all. According to Brian Clark Howard in National Geographic, three white males — including Migaloo — have been spotted off Australia in recent years. He wrote, “One has been dubbed Migaloo Junior’ or the ‘son of Migaloo’ – although no one knows whether this smaller whale is actually related to Migaloo. A third white humpback with black spots on its tail has also been spotted.” Related: Hundreds of people come together to save beached whale in Brazil Due to commercial whaling , humpback whales were once close to extinction . A mere 100 remained in the oceans. Since legal protections were put in place, however, their numbers have recovered. The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) says there are approximately 20,000 humpback whales that migrate to Australia each year. Fortunately, Migaloo remains one of them.

Comments Off on What small suppliers need to know about inclusion and diversity

Citi has focused on supplier diversity since the seventies, said Javette Hines, the company’s head of supply chain development, inclusion and sustainability.”But as we globalize, we want to make sure we have a more inclusive title and role,” she said.  That is why the word “inclusion” was added to her job title in 2016. “It’s ‘inclusion,’ not diversity because it makes us inclusive of all diverse aspects” of the communities that Citi serves,  such as Aboriginal people in Canada and Afro-Brazilian populations in the UK, she said.

There are now just three northern white rhinos on Earth, after the passing of 41-year-old Nola at the San Diego Zoo this weekend.

Zoo officials said in a statement that Nola had surgery on November 13 to drain an abscess from the bacterial infection, and her condition deteriorated in the days following the procedure. Nola is survived by three other elderly rhinos , all living on a preserve in Kenya.
