Save the Seas!

A few nights ago, I met up with two friends from Paris in San Diego. We decided it would be fun to go to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center to catch an IMAX film. The only thing they had playing was this dolphin movie, which was cute I guess.

Cute until the part where it showed dolphins dying in fishing nets like this!!!

Today I just read an article about a fishing boat that killed 22 dolphins of an extremely rare breed. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080319/ap_on_sc/new_zealand_dolphin_danger;_ylt=AjjNfU4Gq6BBX8jllBD0_fUPLBIF

22 was a a devastating blow to the breed, which is straddling the fence of extinction. Dinosaurs and dodo birds, I can deal with. They were stupid animals to begin with. I like to refer to them as Earth's hiccups, like Lindsay Lohan. Dolphins are smart. I think if they had opposable thumbs they would build an ocean empire and enslave mankind. We deserve it. In the IMAX movie I learned that dolphins feel emotions. I also saw a discovery channel special a few years ago that was talking about how they also have recreational sex and (as I like to call it,) "fond-flippering".

Would you kill something that could feel up someone it loved?


A few days prior to stumbling across these, My mom, sister, and I went to the aquarium in San Fransisco. It was kind of a shitty one. There were kids crying and people crowding. The starfish were pretty neat though. It was nothing like the aquarium in Monaco (how pretentious, right?).

Anyhoo, Audrey and I got these little cards that I've seen a few times before:
The image is poor, but check out
for more extensive information on what fish to eat in order to support sustainable fishing that won't turn our oceans into a toilet.

I like dolphins guys. That's why you have to kill fishermen.
That's right. This is a call to arms against fishermen, sailors, immigrants, pirates, anyone that sails the seas. If you're not gutsy enough to take immediate action (MURDER), just chip in a few bucks to organizations, don't throw fishing line, bottles, plastics, etc into stormdrains, and make sure you buy good fish!

On a more important note, DON'T FORGET TO VOTE FOR ME EVERYDAY AT
you can vote once every 24 hours! Spread the word. I'm doin' prreeeeeetttty well!

thanks guys.

It's an Oceanographic Museum & Aquarium in Monaco.

Also Jacques Cousteau was the curator, so basically it's going to be better than most Aquariums.
