Photo Sunday, 7/30/17

These are not my photographs, but ones I got from Monterey Bay Aquarium. I liked them and thought you might, too.

And while we are looking at marine life, just a reminder:

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced this week it would formally reopen the public comment period on a federal review of 11 marine sanctuaries and monuments, including Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary, that could open the areas to oil and gas exploration.

The comment period originally ended Wednesday, but the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration announced that day it would reopen from Monday through Aug. 14 after Rep. Jimmy Panetta and 19 of his colleagues in Congress asked for an extension. Comments can be made at bit.ly/2w1zcUr. A total of 68,176 comments were received so far in 30 days.
