I wanted to be a Marine Biologist and live in Hawaii. Even though I practically failed science my entire school career, this was my dream. Upon telling my parents my career decision my mom burst out laughing and said "Windsor, you've practically failed every science class you've ever taken." In the interim I worked at the Bay Area Discovery Museum teaching kids art and science with an emphasis on local bay sea life. I loved this job and discovered that the general population takes the ocean for granted dumping what ever they like into it - slowly killing it. Last week I went to the Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito to check out their new exhibit Washed Ashore. Wonderful, whimsical sculptures of sea life all made from washed up garbage - Appalling it was, but the message came across loud and clear. Locally I know that people in the Bay Area are very aware of the plight of the oceans. I am hoping that the tourist that come to Sausalito and visit the Mammal Center get the message loud and clear and spread the word. Needless to say, I didn't become a Marine Biologist, but my passion for the ocean and keeping it alive is still as strong as ever. Stop polluting the oceans and get involved!
