  5. I don't know why people can't understand this. Thank goodness there are those who are dedicated to furthering this concept of survival.
    The rest of us must look around our immediate environment and see what change/improvement we can do .... however so small.

  6. Seahorses in particular are facing extinction but life, in general, is on the road to becoming extinct. It is true that in fighting nature we are fighting ourselves. Hopefully, the New Year will see us behaving more responsibly and in harmony with the natural world.
