Just as we have celebrated pollinators in our series that includes the Honeybee, Monarch Butterfly, Dragonfly, and Hummingbird, we are beginning to celebrate other beloved creatures that are endangered by climate change and pollution caused by humans. This latest addition to our tiny menagerie curated from the world's magnificent diversity is meant to nudge us to think of the oceans and what we can do to minimize our plastic trash and to keep what we do use out of waterways.
