Straight-forward and to-the-point.
Time to take reverse-action!
Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Conserve, preserve, protect...

Your child, your children... strangled, left to suffocate, die, and rot.
Mother sharks have no vote, no say about how we treat their offspring.
We are obligated to speak and do for them what they can't do for themselves.


Saving Animals (whether they know it or not!)

When ever given the opportunity to rescue an animal, I take the chance - even if it means putting myself at risk. Some folks are simply predisposed to act when an animal is in need.

Some of the animals I've rescued seem oblivious. Others are frightened. Still others seem to know that I'm helping... they relax and allow me to handle them without fighting back.

In this video the dolphin clearly seems to know that the divers are trying to help. The animal repeatedly returns to the diver and turns itself so the diver can work on removing the fishing line. The only logical conclusion for this behavior? The dolphin knows it's hurt, and knows the diver is helping. Intelligent thinking...

Even Embryos Know

Evolution is so cool.
Fishes have developed a multitude of ways to detect prey and avoid being detected by predators:
Sight, smell, taste, sound, vibration... electrical current.
Turns out even embryonic sharks have ways to sense if a possible predator is near.
Another argument to support shark conservation... We've only just begun to understand them. And clearly, there is still much to be learned.

Two Kinds of Bears

Every once and again someone creates a video that is all at once goofy, spoofy, and funny while also being educational. Enjoy!
