I have plans for new monofilament receptacles to be places soon! I’m working with TWRA on new places to put them and strategize where and when to empty.
All the fishing line collected goes to Berkeley fishing and is recycling led and turned into fish habitats to better our waterways instead of threatening it with improperly disposed of fishing line that wreaks havoc on our wildlife.
Check back to see where these new receptacles will be places! I can’t wait.
My friend, Ella, and I started our own YouTube channel to educate and inspire kids. People sometimes tell us not to worry about the planet or that 1 plastic cup, or straw. Don’t worry that our planet is dying and we are slowing extending her misery. Don’t worry that the ocean, which basically gives us life is being killed at an unbelievable rate. We do worry, kids worry. We know we want change, we know we need change. We are a small population but we are all part fit what future so we can and will create change. We can better be planet if you let our voices be heard. Let us work, let us care, let us be the change for our planet. Last week we talked about the Amazon and how important it is to take care of. This week we will address single use plastics as well as talk to a very special guest. Tune in, check it out and give us a follow. It’s important! It’s time! Time for kids to make a difference and be heard! It’s time for our worry to feel real and let’s address it with some real solutions!
Last week we went fossil hunting in Myrtle beach, SC. Doesn’t sound possible right? I mean, we were literally walking in the beach like any other day but looking for something thousands of years old. It was crazy to just look around and shark teeth are everywhere! How do we not see this? Why do so many people go to cheap gift shops and buy shark tooth necklaces when you can just go to the beach and find one and make your own? Why?
Because it’s easier! But it’s actually terrible for the environment. The shark tooth necklaces you buy in gift shops have fresh white shark teeth while the ones on the beach are black. Do you know why? The white ones are from sharks harvested strait from the ocean either by illegal fishing or by catch. We NEED sharks in the ocean. We need them for healthy ecosystems. We need to learn they are more important where they belong than in a bowl of soup or a cheap novelty necklace. We need more amazing ecotourism options for people to go in the ocean and see these great predators in their own environment.
