Oceana altered it's followers with a plea to help them stop the sale of Manta Ray Leather. That's right, along with their shark cousins, they're body parts are being ground into "medicine" and tanned into boots. I was unaware that these gentle, slow developing giants, were being threatened like their shark cousins. Help Oceana tell this online retailer to stop selling Manta Ray leather. 

It was a very windy sunset. The wind parted the sand, revealing treasure troves of plastic packaging. 

Fresh tracks at sunset on this stunning beach, but do we see all of what's around us?
