Hello! My name is Megan, an 18-year-old ocean activist living in Miami, Florida. Going to a school across the street from an amazing view of the ocean, I have found myself ever-so enthralled in its seemingly infinite beauty. I've also realized the desperate state the ocean is in from society's poor choices--things like over-fishing, illegal whaling, and, you guessed it, pollution.

Most people these days are concerned with "going green" and are determined to make their lives more eco-friendly. What many fail to realize is that while being green is admirable, something far larger is at stake from mankind's poor choices than the soil on which we walk, and that is the ocean. Perhaps we should all change our way of thinking and try on an outfit of a different color--blue.

After all; if the oceans die, we die.

After a peaceful protest on a Gazprom oil platform to protect the fragile Arctic, 30 Greenpeace activists have now been detained in Murmansk, Russia. The preliminary court hearing is scheduled for 9 a.m. local time on Thursday morning.

Who else totally admires the group Flippers Japan, a new Japanese group voicing their opinion and opposing their own country&#8217;s dolphin slaughter in Taiji?! Change is happening! &lt;3

I absolutely loved my first day of college!

In case you don’t know, I’m studying Zoology and Marine Sciences at University of Florida. I’m on the pre-vet track. :)

This semester I’m taking Wildlife Colloquium, Wildlife Biodiversity, Forests for the Future, Geography of a Changing World and Intro to Oceanography - how awesome is that?! I really think I am going to enjoy college since my classes will reflect my interests. My Oceanography professor broke my heart today, however, when he informed us that the class didn’t cover whales nor the adventures of Jacques Cousteau… haha, bummer! :p

I’ll try to get back to blogging regularly since I’ll be having quite a bit of spare time. I’ve missed you all!
