We are concerned for the manatees that shelter in our bay to have and raise their young. Too many people in too many boats go too fast, and many manatees are wounded or killed by propellers of boats.
We residents worry about the dolphins, pelicans and other seabirds trying to live and survive in a hostile environment of our making. What can reasonable people do?
As an educator, I am convinced that education is the answer. Children, and sometimes their parents, need to be enlightened about the danger and damage such thoughtless actions cause. In fact, the theme this year of World Oceans Day is: Youth: the Next Wave for Change.
We must share this planet and have to be respectful of all life. As we get close to Oceans Day , let us not only give thought but action to helping preserve the oceans and all that call it home.
