Day 12 - May 4, 2009

Life Guard Station 26, Ocean Park, Santa Monica CA

est. lbs. today - 5
est. lbs. to date - 81.5
Just a beautiful shell someone hadn't disturbed yet when I saw it. 
Are plastic bags a reason to smile? Not if you're a turtle. They eat them thinking that they are their primary food, jellyfish.
"Besides plastic bags, the turtles had swallowed fishing lines, balloon fragments, spoons, candy wrappers, and more." That's a quote from this article. If you look at the article, you'll also see an incredible slideshow of Sea Turtles (one of my all time favorite animals), and some of the pictures include people helping them. It's not all doom and gloom folks. Nope, not at all.
