"Every child should have mud pies, grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles, frogs & turtles, elderberries, wild strawberries, acorns, hickory nuts, trees to climb, animals to pet, hayfields, pine cones, rocks to roll, sand, snakes, huckleberries and hornets – and any child who has been deprived of these has been deprived of the best part of his education." -Luther Burbank 1849 - 1926

Shifting Baselines paints a video picture of our oceans

Like to fish? This is the tale about the big one that didn't quite get away: Tiny Fish

Seriously, ocean health is a big issue these days and poking a little fun at the problem never hurts -- as long as we turn to the serious side of the issue and do something.

Shifting Baselines is a nonprofit media organization that's helping spread the word that we benefit from protecting our beaches and ocean. Check 'em out -- you'll have a few chuckles to share with your buddies.

Video PSA Contest

And if you create videos (or know someone who does)--they have a great PSA contest going on.

Check out their blog for more fun and ideas.

Shifting Baselines is a "media project" -- a partnership between ocean conservation and Hollywood to help bring attention to the severity of ocean decline. "We are not an action group and we do not have any membership to join. If we have done our job well and you are motivated to help protect the world's oceans, then PLEASE join one, some, or all of our PARTNER groups. They are the people really doing things. They have the "Get Involved" buttons, the Action Plans, and the Grassroots Activities. They need your help and are seeking donations. If you would like to donate to The Shifting Baselines Ocean Media Project, please contact us at"
