The MareCet Research Organization
As an avid supporter of MareCet's excellent efforts in marine mammal conservation in Malaysia, I decided to take up a personal challenge to raise funds for their cause. I will stop shaving for three months, beginning in February in my efforts to garner support and raise funds for The MareCet Research Organization. Besides growing what I imagine to be an attractive beard, not shaving is rather green! No shaving creams needed, which means no extra shaving cans to litter our environment. Oh, not to forget I save water! With the recent drought, saving every little drop of water is essential. I have volunteered with MareCet a number of times, and have experienced their passion and dedication for marine conservation firsthand. They conduct research on dolphins, porpoises and dugongs to gain a better understanding of the animals' ecology and the threats that they face from human activities. And I learned that these animals are indicators on how healthy (or not) our seas are. Therefore at MareCet, their work on marine mammals act as mascots for MARINE CONSERVATION. In the end, we are part of the cycle - the state of our seas will eventually affect our lives on land.
