There's news from the South Atlantic Gyre - and it's not so good...from a Sept. 2nd post by one of the crew members on the Sea Dragon now underway to Ascension Island:

Sea Gulls refuse to eat taco sauce from Jack in the box, although they certainly spread it around to check it out first.
Come out and party for Heal the Bay!
While they must still be bummed about the failure of AB 1998 (HTB were the sponsors) - they have many reasons to celebrate, and friends who want to throw parties for them! SO..join us!

"learn about the current environmental efforts of Heal the Bay, to become donors of the charity as well as volunteers, advocates and educators. Funds are raised through a donation of $40 per guest to attend the evening party being held, poolside, at Hotel Shangri-La, by the Pacific Ocean on September 3rd from 7pm."

My friend Danielle sent me a link to this great blog called "News from Wrightsville Beach Sea Turtle Project." They have been hard at work collecting trash, washing abandoned towels and donating shoes that are left astray on their local beach. Yay!
