If our oceans were clean, this type of thing wouldn't happen. But of course, things can't change overnight. Luckily, there are people on boats who just so happen to be in the right place at the right time. From a dolphin tangled in a rope to a pelican suffering from a fishing hook around its beak, Christopher Brennan has seen it all. Thanks for keeping an eye out for these helpless creatures, you're making the world a better place.

Even Those In The Animal Kingdom Need One Another

By the looks of this video, elephants are the kind who stick together, and thank goodness that's the case for this baby elephant. Tourists visiting the Addo Elephant National Park in South Africa witnessed the heart stopping moment a young elephant fell into the waterhole after leaning down to take a drink. It seems the small thing comes close to drowning, but the herd won't let that happen. Moms can all relate to this polar bear's struggle to keep her cubs under control. Filmmakers André and Anita Gilden captured some remarkable moments of this polar bear family in the high Arctic. Watching it, doesn't it feel as if you're actually there?! Not many of us will have the chance to see something like this in our lifetime, so thank you Gildens' for sharing! Bobcats are typically solitary creatures but for whatever reason, these two are perfectly fine with being incredibly close. What are they doing exactly? AND IN SOMEONE'S FRONT YARD!? At times it almost looks like they are looking into a mirror and seeing their own reflection. View Now

Gayle On Film: 'Solo: A Star Wars Story'

Let's face it, Alden Ehrenreich has VERY big shoes to fill. He's cast as young Han Solo in the titular character's origin story, and on the surface he does an adequate job of it. "Solo: A Star Wars Story" is directed by Oscar-winner Ron Howard ("A Beautiful Mind," "Willow"). Does he look like Harrison Ford's Solo? Not much, until he gets a big Cheshire Cat grin on his face and you might think they're related. View Now
