What your life needs right now is a larger-than-life plush Giant Isopod. A common visitor to food falls, Giant Isopods are scavengers of the deep.  The DSN infatuation for this ginormous Roly-Poly is rivaled only by our beloved giant squid. DSN’s Rick Macpherson has generously donated a plush Gi…




Did you know these are the same dancers from the Chimney scene in Mary Poppins!?!

Still defining epic, after all these years.

Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area — all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef. Reblog if this outrageous decision does not represent you. This is a massive disappointment, but we cannot give up hope. Sign up here to make our movement bigger than ever and keep up the fight to ‪#‎SaveTheReef‬:

Nemo’s dead and we killed him

Please Sign the petition guys. So many creatures will be decreased dramatically or even become endangered if we don’t stop it. Also watch the video. It really gave an insight into what would happen if this went ahead.

Hey, so GetUp! is deciding to take legal action against this travesty, and you can donate to their kick starter here

All that doodling during lecture has trained me for this day lol.

This tree looks like it’s been covered in a giant cobweb - but it’s actually silk from thousands of caterpillar larvae. The army of hungry caterpillar young had stripped the tree of its leaves as they prepared to transform into moths.
