Savannah Mermaid's Parade Day is to protect the sea goddess and her creatures by embodying and celebrating all things mermaid.
When big oil companies search for where to drill in the ocean they use underwater sonar. Dolphins and whales use their own kind of sonar to communicate.
The kind the oil companies use is very harsh to them and it is such high decibels that it hemorrhages the dolphins and whales brain and internal organs and kills them. Since hearing this news I have not really been able to stop crying inside.
When you actually have the chance to hear the way dolphins talk and see the look in their cute eyes, how curious and playful, intelligent and adaptable they are you would fall in love with dolphins too and my deepest wish for every human in the world is to get to know wild dolphins in the magical and beautiful habitat in which they live.
Besides the torture these beautiful animals endure, is the fact Right Whales (Named centuries ago by whale hunters as the "Right" whales to hunt) have been protected since the 70's but are currently still going extinct and there are only 400 left in the world. Here off the coast of Georgia is where they spawn.
Also, once the oil companies have killed all the sea life, and they start drilling for a source of energy soon to run out, it has a chance of spilling into the ocean and making it so toxic that people can't even swim let alone eat the fish, which will all be dead. So bye bye fishing industry for the local economy.
There are many levels to this horror.
Sea Life is the primal source of all life, it is where we all crawled out of in the first place (thus the legend of Atlantis) and when the children of the Sea Goddess die human land lubbers are next. People are not exempt from Ocean Environmental Care.
This environmental cause is the one I am helping in particular and I just wanted to be extra clear. I know you understand my purpose in life to serve the goddess with everything I can. I dedicated myself to this cause.
The state of the world can be so overwhelming, many of us are inert, frozen because we do not know which way to turn. I am not frozen. I am the positive change I want to see in the world, and making a Mermaid Celebration for others is what I personally can do to help spread a serious message in a fun positive way.
My dear friend Beverly Hollingsworth created the "no drilling for oil" page and told me about the evil plans of the oil companies, and now the game is on and I will fight to the death with my trident and sea shell shield.
