Hurry up! There are only a few hours left to buy an awesome Save the Whales/VIVA Vaquita t-shirt with the profits going to the Vaquita!
For the entire month of April, VIVA Vaquita will be the recipient of Mahalo Mondays at Hula’s Island Grill and Tiki Room in Monterey, California, so please eat and/or drink there on Mondays in April. 10% of Hula’s sales from 4:00 pm until closing on Mondays will go to VIVA Vaquita this April!
TakePart and WWF have teamed up to create a March Madness-like bracket for endangered animals! Please vote on the matchups and TakePart will donate up to $2,500 to WWF! The World Wildlife Fund is one of the biggest Vaquita supporters, so it really is important that you vote once a day until April 9!
Also, my book will soon be for sale in the Hau’ula Gift Shop on the Windward side of Oahu, Hawaii, in the Ching Jong Leong store building in Punaluu. The gift shop is run by Fawwaz Jubran, and is mentioned in this article: http://www.hawaiibusiness.com/Hawaii-Business/January-2008/Roadside-Attraction/.
If you are in the area, please join the Muskwa Club at their Vaquita table during the Point Vicente Interpretive Center’s ‘Whale of a Day’ on April 5 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm! The event promises to be informative, exciting, and simply a whale of a time. 😉
Finally, thanks to everyone who participated in the Post-a-day Challenge. I hope that many people learned about the Vaquita this month, but let’s not stop! Keep sharing the Vaquita love!
Tomorrow, Monday the 29th, is the last day to join ¡Viva Vaquita! at Hula’s Island Grill and Tiki Room in Monterey, California for Mahalo Mondays, where 10% of all sales go to ¡Viva Vaquita!. Dinner starts at 4 pm.
Please email Endangered Species Chocolate at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask them to make a Vaquita bar. It would be an enormous deal for such a big company to advertise the Vaquita!
Also, you probably noticed that I completely changed how my blog looks. I personally like it better now. How do you feel about it?
And, for the 100th News Update, I would like to end with a riddle. Submit your answers in the comments.
What is a Vaquita’s favorite model of computer?
If you live in the area, join ¡Viva Vaquita! at Hula’s Island Grill and Tiki Room in Monterey, California every Monday night in April for their Mahalo Monday fundraiser! 10% of sales will go to ¡Viva Vaquita! It is open for dinner starting at 4 pm. Hope you can come!
Also, William Whittenbury from the Muskwa Club has asked me to write the script for their informational movie that will be on their YouTube channel, possibly a local news station, and maybe even on a loop in the Cabrillo Aquarium and at a Vaquita Fundraising event at the Hawaiian Waikiki Aquarium, which is still an idea in progress that the aquarium has shown much interest in. Many more ideas are also in the works, and I will update them as soon as they become official.
