Howl‬‏ing Beagle Puppy

“This is Copper at only 8 weeks old when he had just discovered the fact that he could howl. When I got the camera out, he wanted to show it off to us. My two-year old son was helping out by howling with him in the background.” — ggreen216

Underwater VW Beetle Sculpture

A life-size and eight ton cement replica of a classic Volkswagen Beetle has been lowered into the sea as part of an underwater sculpture museum. Artist Jason deCaires-Taylor created the faux car as part of his amazing underwater installation at Cancun and Isla Mujeres National Marine Park. Now sitting 8m underwater, it’s specifically designed to house marine life, and is made with a ph neutral marine cement which promotes coral. It even has a variety of special compartments inside so lobsters can make it their home… just don’t ask what does it does to the gallon!” w/ photos

317 Pieces Of Plastic Found In Turtle

A green sea turtle has been found dead on a New South Wales beach with more than 300 pieces of plastic in its digestive system. The turtle was found washed up at Ballina, in the state’s north, earlier this month. Australian Seabird Rescue spokeswoman Rochelle Ferris says it is the most shocking case she has seen in 15 years. She says there is no doubt the plastic killed the animal. “We see 40 or 50 sea turtles each year that are suffering from plastic ingestion,” Ms Ferris said. “This is definitely an extreme of that, but we’re only looking at 155 miles of coastline. “There’s a million turtles out there on the Barrier Reef of this species and I have no doubt there are more out there in this condition.” w/ photos
