Shark Stanley Needs Your Help

Shark Stanley and his friends were playing on the reef,
When down came a net that swept them away. 
But at last when they escaped, they saw to their grief, 
Their home had no sharks! Leaving it barren and grey. 

Now Stan and his buddies are searching the ocean 
From Bali to Brazil and Bangladesh to Belize
For friends to stand up and cause a commotion 
Because the world needs sharks to help save the seas! 

“Hello friend! My name is Shark Stanley and I am traveling around the world to find friends who will support shark and manta ray protections at the upcoming Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) meeting in March.  If you would like to help me with this mission, you can print a picture of me - or my friends Manta Reina, Pierre le Porbeagle, and Waqi Whitetip - cut us out, and take a photo with us anywhere you wish. Then please send us this photo along with your name and where you are from!  My supporters are compiling your photos from around the world to share on their blog and web pages, and sending them to governments voting at CITES to get their support!  Help us reach our goal of finding 50 organizations and celebrities to partner with me, and to collect at least 5000 photos from all 177 CITES countries!”

Not only him but each and every creature dwelling in the wild and in this world needs our help. We, as steward of nature, should definitely fulfill this simple act of caring as a courtesy to other dwellers here in our world.
