Saving Marine Animals that Are NOT Cute
MARCH 13, 2010
Examples include panda bears, wolves, elephants, tigers, etc. People want to save the dolphins and the sea otters, but what about the bluefin tuna? We hear about the problem with charismatic land species. It's those species that either have a powerful personality or a cute face that endear people to them and garner news attention. It's easier to motivate people to save them as opposed to other species that are vital, but either boring or ugly. It's the same problem with marine life.
