Cat Lady No. 282...Salty Sanctuary

Cat Lady Calandra and her favorite cat fish Salty are delighted that their home near Ecuador has just become a marine reserve. That means that a 135,000-acre area, that has an even wider array of species than the Galapagos Islands, will be protected and preserved.

The world's largest colonies of Black Coral will be protected, as well as a multitude of fish, jellyfish, mollusks and even segmented worms. It will also protect crucial feeding territory for several species of sea turtle, plus humpback, orca, sperm and pilot whales.

For more information, visit this website: Galera-San Francisco Marine Preserve. Be sure to check out the wonderful slide show!

Thanks for visiting!
