The Marine & Oceanic Sustainability Foundation calls to me. Someone said to me a few months ago, "You can close MOSF, but it won't leave you! It is who you are" I think he was right. We will begin posting and tweeting again... not to raise money (that's the part the killed it for us), but to share ocean & sustainability news and "Focus On The Positive!"

It is with a heavy, yet always optimistic heart, that we are announcing that the Marine & Oceanic Sustainability Foundation (MOSF) is closing it’s doors. Although we still believe in the mission and goals of MOSF, this decision has been made solely for financial reasons.

If you love MOSF’s social media posts, our Managing Director, Jen Pitzer, has started a new FB page to share cool ocean facts, photography, optimism and news. (She can’t help herself, she suffers from a VERY severe case of Ocean Addiction!) Her new page can be found at: https://www.facebook.com/CyanDreamer

THANK YOU for your love and support!

Depending on the species, a sea star's skin may feel leathery or slightly prickly. Sea stars have a tough covering on their upper side, which is made up of plates of calcium carbonate with tiny spines on their surface.

"How one cigarette butt dropped in the hills could wind up on a beach 13 miles away" An interesting article on how litter ends up in the ocean by the Los Angeles Times. http://ow.ly/L8BtM

This simple proverb beautifully states why the team at MOSF does what it does - we are getting people, just like YOU, involved in marine conservation and nurturing a love of the oceans.

The Pacific Whale Watch Association reports that the two new orca babies of JPod (a pod in British Columbia are "lively and rambunctious". Once given only a 50 percent chance of survival, the newest additions to the endangered southern resident community of orcas appear to be thriving.
