Happy Earth Day ๐ŸŒŽ

โ€œPeople ask: Why should I care about the ocean? Because the ocean is the cornerstone of earth's life support system, it shapes climate and weather. It holds most of life on earth. 97% of earth's water is there. It's the blue heart of the planet โ€” we should take care of our heart. It's what makes life possible for us. We still have a really good chance to make things better than they are. They won't get better unless we take the action and inspire others to do the same thing. No one is without power. Everybody has the capacity to do something.

-Sylvia A. Earle

We do our part to help all living things by reminding our patrons that the ocean is not infinite. It is not this vast nothingness where itโ€™s ok to dump or forget trash. All the trash remains there. Especially balloons!

- we encourage our customers to think about where balloons go when they are let go. They donโ€™t magically disappear- they end up somewhere on earth and much of that somewhere is the ocean. Once there- they easily are ingested by animals- like the Mola Mola pictured here. We pick a few up- but we cannot get them all. So we ask that you do your part- and make good choices- think about alternatives for decoration that do not fly away from you.

There is something each and everyone of us can do to help Whales and Dolphins, which helps the ocean, which in turn helps all living things on Planet Earth. Over 50% of the worlds oxygen comes from the worlds oceans. Every time you refuse, reduce, reuse, or recycle โ™ป๏ธ you are helping dolphins and whales and our Mola Mola friend, you are helping the ocean- YOU ARE HELPING YOURSELF

Be good to the Earth ๐ŸŒŽ ๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿ‹๐Ÿงœ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ


Hoppy Easter from the Crew of the Cape May Whale Watcher and the Stewart Family!
