When Stephen McGarva and wife Pamela decided to move to Puerto Rico because of her job, he jumped at the chance to explore the sun-soaked island. On their first week in the lush resort community in Humacao in October 2005, McGarva — an artist, extreme-sports addict and professional free spirit — went exploring remote Playa Lucia beach for a killer wind gust. “I noticed what I thought was a pile of coconut husks,” he told The Post. “When I got closer, I said, ‘Oh, my God, it’s a dog.’ ”

When people ask me, “What’s the best place in the world to see wildlife?” I generally say, “Wherever you happen to be right now. Just look.” They nod politely. After a second they add, “OK, and if I want to travel?” The obvious possibilities come to mind—the rainforests of Costa Rica, Tanzania’s Serengeti National Park—along with a few quirkier ones, such as Los Llanos in Venezuela and the Himalayan foothills in Bhutan. In the end though, I always answer, “The Okavango Delta in Botswana.”

There she blows! A humpback whale, dubbed Jerry by researchers, showed that some summer tourists come by sea, as the magnificent creature surfaced off the coast of the Big Apple. Jerry got a gorgeous glimpse of the Empire State Building, and surely must be heading to Broadway to take in a performance of “The Little Mermaid.” Scientists describe Jerry’s behavior as spyhopping, a move that’s much like humans treading water and allows the massive marine mammals to take a look at their surroundings.

According to The New Zealand Herald, Kiwi made headlines five years ago when she lost her own baby, named Squirt, after getting stranded in a muddy inlet. Rescuers were able to return the mother to the ocean, but Squirt, which was nowhere to be found, was believed to have been eaten by an orca during the separation.
