It's World Oceans Day today, a time to think about what the oceans mean to us and how we can help conserve them and the wonderful wildlife that lives in them. Two bloggers who i regularly read have posted excellent posts on World Oceans Day:
Beth at Fake Plastic Fish posted about the connection between our overconsumerist lifestyles and mindsets and the amount of garbage in the oceans. You can read her post here.
Angela over at A Note from Your Mother (Amazing Mother Earth) shares lots of links and some photos, including a very cute seal here.
