His job was to watch the strainers and save any sea turtles or sea wildlife that would get caught in them..He said he loved it..

Working for something you truly believe in is THE BEST and you have my heartfelt best wishes. I truly hope you have an impact an can divert his surreal plan to cope with the energy crisis to something that's more imaginative and sustainable.I worked in conservation for a few years, loved every minute and then started to get disillusioned with the fact that most people simply don't care. Even those that say they do are rarely willing to make even the smallest changes or sacrifices in their own lifestyle to make a difference.Still, I'm with you all the way - go for it, good luck and God(ess) bless.Noods

P.S. I've already done the petition - let me know if I can help in any other way.

Just to interject... if you like animation and want to see something that talks pretty powerfully about the environment, try to track down the series Earth Girl Arujuna (or is sometimes spelled Arjuna).I don't think it has officially been brought over to the US from Japan yet, but I've seen fan subtitled versions of the first four episodes on places like Hotline.Captain Planet has always kind of irked me in that it seems like a good idea that could have been done sooo much better, and is hard to take serious at all the way it is. On the other hand, Arujuna seems more of a personal journey and the choices that everyone has to make in their lives...Anyway, congrats N8! I can only hope to do something that important some day.
