Posted 1 year ago with 21 notes The weedy seadragon (Phyllopteryx taeniolatus) uses leaf-like appendages as camouflage to hide from predators. This protection works so well that adult seadragons have no natural predators. However, they are still threatened by habitat destruction. They live in coastal waters and feed on small crustaceans and zooplankton. Like seahorses, seadragon males are the fertilized eggs, which remain under their tails for about two months before the young hatch.

Please please please sign this petition. it takes around 15 seconds to complete if you know the very BASIC information. The level of ignorance I see from people around the world for our oceans is getting greater all the time. The lack of education means that people are missing the point that if our oceans become severely affected, the world will begin to be severely affected. We live in a very carefully balanced eco-structure and it’s already being smashed to pieces for ridiculous profits. We all need a little profit to live, but it’s the greed and negligence of the big corporations and banks which are holding our future at a ransom so they can play an insane game of ‘my dad’s bigger than your dad’. 

Please sign this, and reblog it once. Cast aside the picture re-blogs of the things you want, and do something really worth while. I’d like to see at least 50 re-blogs if possible, and i hope that many of you who follow this blog will take the initiative to do something good today. This is your good deed. And if this post TRULY offends you enough to unfollow me then go take a long hard think about what it is you stand for. 

Thanks everyone.
