Before the season of sun and fun is in full swing, why not spend a gorgeous springtime weekend getting your favorite beach ready for summer? There's no need to wait for International Beach Cleanup Day--which is September 17th--to get your shoreline in tiptop shape.

March 28, 2016DEAR FRIENDS, On March 10th, SHARK was at the Minnesota Horse and Hunt Club in Prior Lake, MN, to protest and document a 2,000 bird live pigeon shoot fundraiser on behalf of Ducks Unlimited (DU). These innocent birds were shot, wounded and killed, all so DU could make some money.We are now releasing video from that shoot, which you can watch HERE[1]. We will be releasing a second video on Wednesday and a third on Friday. These videos will expose DU for being nothing but unethical animal serial killers.

Please be polite and respectful and let us know if you receive any response. References^ HERE (sharkonline.us7.list-manage1.com)...

But in the 1970s, scientists discovered a place called the Cave of Sleeping Sharks near Mexico, where reef sharks could lie motionless. High levels of oxygen and low levels of salt in the water keep the sharks alive.
