I want to make a shout out to the Shark Finatics at the Green Chimney School who were a part of the recent Ocean Hero contest from Oceana and whose teacher Robin Culler, I had the privilege to meet while she was in LA to accept her Ocean Hero Award on behalf of her and her students. They have adopted over 12 sharks, and pledge to educate people all over the world to protect what is becoming an increasingly risky future for the poor old shark.
Don't know what shark fining is?
But a warning that it is a gruesome practice of cutting off the sharks fins while still alive, and then chucking them overboard so that they drop to the bottom and drown. Hard to believe a practice like this exists, but it does...mostly to add the fins, which are high in mercury, to soup. Oh yeah, and the fins are tasteless......
Ahhhhh Nestle...maker of many things plastic. Mainly water bottles and other plastic packaging that ends up in...our oceans.
A snorkeling mask that I am sure is missed.
Hands Across the Sand is this Sat..
Want to show solidarity against offshore oil drilling?
Check out their website, find a Hands Across the Sand meeting place near you and join up against oil drilling. Wouldn't it be amazing if we make the goal of a continuous chain along the entire US coastline?? Could happen, come along.
