seahorse rescue

My sister is a long term volunteer at a non-profit organization (Save Our Seahorses) that are committed to saving seahorses in the southern part of Malaysia, in the state of Johor.

There are plans to build petroleum storage around the area, and will greatly threaten the environment surrounding as well as the future of the seahorses. One of my sister's task is to educate the local people. More information can be found on the Save Our Seahorses website.

There is a online petition that my sister is hoping that they will get 5o00 signatures and the current count is 4621 (at time of posting). I'm not sure that 5000 signature will be enough to stop the harm, but I want to give my sister all the support I can get.

If you have a moment and would like to learn about the petition and maybe sign it, visit the petition link at "Seahorse in perils"

Thanks for reading.

Thanks Rebecca! I'm letting my sister know once she returns to civilization and have access to her email.
