GOOD CAUSES TO SUPPORT:


Petition created by Seaspiracy:

Help us protect 30% of our oceans by 2030 from industrial fishing

More petitions to protect the ocean and its creatures:

Octopus Are Extremely Smart, But These Countries Want to Make Them Suffer

Victory: Shark Fishing Has Been Banned in Hawaii! Florida Must Follow Suit! 

Protect the West Coast of South Africa - "This is an appeal for support so that PTWC can lobby the South African Government to stop the rapidly burgeoning heavy sand mineral mining up the West Coast of South Africa that negatively impacts coastal communities, other users of the coast and vast tracts of pristine wilderness."

Some new docs to check out. Thanks. (I've been watching History Channel stuff as well as cult-like businesses and festivals. Nature would be a good change of pace.)

I haven't watched any of these, but the one on the National Park with Obama sounds very interesting.
