"I love the ocean and have shared that passion with kids in my community. The potential for tourism and economic development exists here, but a focus on coastal conservation is needed to realize that potential."

Plastic Debris in Ocean Has Developed Its Own Ecology

The masses of plastic debris that float over large areas of the world’s oceans have become new ecological communities that scientists have named the “Plastisphere.” 
…[Researchers] explain that plastic has become the number one form of ocean debris, causing serious concerns about its impact on the health of ocean communities. The damaging effects that plastic in the oceans have on fish, birds and other seafaring animals have previously been described in detail by other researchers. But scientists had yet to explore what plastic does to some of the smallest ocean inhabitants.
…tiny organisms from algae to bacteria thrive on plastic debris, transforming it into rich “microbial reefs” that are distinct from communities in surrounding water. Though some inhabitants may be degrading the plastic, it still provides a relatively stable home for microbes. …The Plastisphere harbors a group of bacteria called Vibrio. Some Vibrio species can cause illnesses, such as cholera, when they come in contact with humans.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2013/07/plastic-ocean-developed-own-ecology

Audrey Hepburn

I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

Oscar Wilde 

I think it’s very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.

Writings for Winter: What I'd Do For You →

writingsforwinter:

Whenever you drink like the world’s going to end, I’ll buy you a kit

that protects anyone, human, cat, or alien, from the apocalypse.

When you’re wound up so tight that you can barely move,

I’ll take a pair of scissors and cut all your strings

but leave you just enough left to dangle at the…
