Yellow underside of a starfish. It really makes me wonder why sea creatures are so colorful despite the fact that they are mostly underwater. It turns out, according to an article that I read, that communication signals, mating, camouflage, territory and other factors are used for color information and fine spatial information to encode species identity.
And at the rate the ocean degradation is happening, these shallow water colorful sea creatures won’t have much protection from mostly humans who them more harm and damage. So please, put back these starfish and other sea creatures in the water if you are done taking their photos. As much as possible, leave them where they belong: to the sea.
Green fish swimming. Except these are not real fish but empty plastic 1.5/2 liters Sprite green bottles. This was done by the eldest child and her classmates with the Greenpeace Volunteers.
What a lovely way to recycle. Or reuse. Huh? I’m confused.
I remember going to a min-concert of a folk singer half a lifetime ago, he said something like this while holding up a bottled water: “This is a healthy thing to do, drink water. In a politically incorrect non-biodegradable container.”
Everyone should learn how to reduce, reuse and recycle (not sure if this is the correct sequence, lol). We start them young in doing the three R for our trash. This reduce, reuse and recycle applies even or especially to people with Surgical Technologist jobs, doctors, teachers, and parents.
We do this at home, segregate our trash. Little things do matter when it comes to caring for the environment.
