I feel like hell today. I woke up exhausted, and I haven't been much more productive than I was yesterday. At least 224 people have signed my petition to save the Coulston chimps. If you haven't signed, and you're passionate about animals, you can check out the cause at: http://animals.change.org/petitions/view/save_chimp_survivors_of_the_coulston_foundation
I've accumulated a fair number of "coins" with change.org, for my efforts and activism, and can use those coins to send helpful gifts to various causes (a-donation-has-been-made-in-your-name-kind-of-stuff). I don't correspond with many people via email, and since email addresses are needed to send these gifts out, I have a lot to give, and not a lot of people to give to, so if you're passionate about animals, hit me up. I'd like to spread the love.
I let dishes and such pile up on my stove, and I didn't really clean up the entirety of the mess before cooking with my oven last night. The result? A plastic bowl with a huge whole in it, and some other delapitated items that now look like a piece of modern art. I pried these items free, while cleaning today, and may use them is some sort of collage, haha.
As far as today's activism goes, I've decided that today's animal is the vaquita porpoise – the world's most endangered marine mammal. The following information was plucked from a petition on Change.org: "The vaquita is a small porpoise (whales, dolphins, and porpoises are called cetaceans by scientists). It is one of only six species of true porpoises, and is the only one that occurs in warm waters of the eastern Pacific Ocean. It is found in a tiny area in the extreme northern Gulf of California, in Baja California, Mexico. It is a unique species, with a body shape and color pattern unlike that of any other. It has a tall dorsal fin (for a porpoise) and a beautiful color pattern on the face, with dark eye rings and lip patches that look like an application of “goth” make-up. There is only one small population, and if the species goes extinct, they will be gone forever."
