It gets me every time.
Because I live on land above water, I never really thought much about the life under the sea. Most of my focus has naturally been the nature that surrounds me every day. The nature that I Know. But since I started taking classes in marine biology, a whole new absolutely fascinating world has opened up to me. There is so much life down there! As I take the time to learn about and explore underwater nature, I am connecting deeply with it. As I connect with it I find myself caring about it. Thinking about it. Being more observant and aware about how I affect it. Yesterday at the beach as I marveled at all the colorful seashells on the shore and how each one of those was made by an animal and lived in by an animal, I found myself picking up trash and plastic bags scattering the beach. I found myself understanding that this trash kills animals in the ocean. I knew that in my head before, but now I knew it in my heart. Now it really meant something to me. That is the power of Know~Connect~Care
Now look at that beautiful sea anemone I was able to spot just by being more aware of the nature around me!
