These wonderful mammals, these Manatees, these amazing Sea Cows really can “Sooth the Savage Breast”
Offset 16 Tons Of Carbon By Planting Sea Grass For Manatees
Help restore critical marine habitat and offset your carbon footprint.
Seagrasses grow in shallow coastal regions of every continent on Earth except Antarctica. These hidden meadows are incredibly important ecosystems, providing crucial habitat for thousands of species of fish, plants, and invertebrates, as well as providing food for animals like sea turtles and manatees. They also play a critical role in the fight against global warming: an acre of seagrass can store more than twice the carbon stored by an acre of pristine rainforest, and seagrass habitats are up to 45 times more effective in their carbon uptake and storage abilities.
Unfortunately, because these beautiful underwater fields are hidden from our view, the disastrous destruction of seagrasses worldwide has gone largely unnoticed by the general public. Scientists estimate that we lose a seagrass meadow the size of a soccer field every 20 minutes–a rate faster than global deforestation. Most of this loss is caused by human activities such as coastal development, boat groundings, and propeller scars. The damage a boat propeller can do in five seconds can take five to fifty years to heal.
SeaGrass Grow!, a program of the Ocean Foundation, works to restore damaged seagrass, plant new seagrass, and increase public awareness to eliminate destructive human behavior and conserve our coastal meadows. Your support protects and restores threatened coastal seagrass, offsetting carbon emissions, providing habitat that supports global fish populations, and supplying a critical food source for large sea mammals like the manatee.

My favorite words are sarcastic and the phrase “Go to Hell”. I am not a happy person but can at times be funny. I laugh so I will not cry. Thank you for this truly amusing post.
1. Support. From family, friends, groups, or bras – support is important. Why? We all have saggy moments, even the world. I admit to feeling shaken and stirred – too much time in the shallow end, let’s dive in deep, let’s talk about ‘s’ baby…
2. Salt, people have been using it for like 10,000 years, slightly longer than I’ve been alive. As a baby I had a saltlick in my crib. I wander the streets following salt trucks. I envy cats, dogs, and giraffes – they can freely lick humans for salt. I know it’s bad for me…my precious. I’m slowly desalting.
3. Selling. Everything seems to be for and/or on sale now. The new genius? Stephen Hawking selling cars.
