So this morning, I was delighted when I opened up my email to find an article about Dr. Terrie Williams studying the heartrate of marine animals up in Santa Cruz to determine how they are affected by our actions. I think it’s so cool to not only see science making strides to really see how we can improve living conditions for our marine friends, and also to see a scientist with the drive to renew peoples passions for marine conservation.
Excerpt from the article:
“Dr. Williams worries that we’ve given up on the fight and wants to renew our passion to save our seas and the billions of lives that depend on it.
“You have want it more than oil, you have to want it more than fish on the table, and you just have to want it more. But if you do, you can have it. I know it’s out there,” Dr. Williams said.” (http://www.ivanhoe.com/science/story/2011/02/819a.html)
If you’d like to renew your passion and fight to save the sea otters, and choose to do so over your desire for oil, write to your congressperson and ask them to support the No New Drilling Act (HR 261): http://www.otterproject.org/siteapps/advocacy/ActionCenter.aspx?c=8pIKIYMIG&b=33144
