According to a news report on Chinese media, the hottest new fad in China involves selling a live fish, or a Brazilian turtle or a young giant salamander sealed up in airtight plastic bags as key rings. Each packet is about 7 centimeters in length and filled with colored water along with the imprisoned animal.
The street vendors claim the water is nutrient rich, but they are not. Without oxygen and food the animals get to live for only a few days, if they are lucky. The most depressing part is that the whole thing is legal.

Ocean Story is transforming into an Ocean Conservation Co-operative, building projects propsed by and voted for my our members. Every voice counts and together we can create a Powerful Wave of Transformation.
We are taking an 80ft sailing vessel, converted into an Emissary of Peace, Unity and Ocean Conservation around the world. The boat will be transformed into a work of art (with her hull and sails to be turned into a mosaic of people’s art, songs, poems etc) and a crusader, carrying a crew of teachers, creative storytellers, musicians and conservationists working in unity for ocean awareness and positive change.
Setting sail on a campaign voyage with a mission to inspire and educate, the project is creating material to be distributed throughout existing education media channels in schools, internationally. The campaign centres around, not just conservation facts, but also the greater realisation that each person is a wave maker, with the freedom and power to make beautiful waves on the planet.
