Gift-giving Ideas for Antarctic Conservationists
From the folks at GIANTmicrobes, a useful gift for those interested in Antarctica. Behold the plush krill! It is often difficult to get people as excited about krill as they are about seals, whales, and penguins because krill are not cute, do not appear to be dressed in formal wear, or engage in impressive water acrobatics. Nevertheless, krill are vital for the survival of their more lovable Antarctic compatriots. This stuffed animal will show the cuddlier side of this very important marine organism. Send one to the arm of your country's government that deals with Antarctic marine resources issues to remind those policymakers that krill are just as worthy of attention.
