World Wildlife Fund has an entertaining new website called WaveForward where you can “discover your inner fish” by answering a few questions about where you vacation, what movies you watch, and what you like to do at parties. You can also learn more about Sustainable Seafood and Healthy Ecosystems. Check out the feature story “Buyer Beware” in the Coastal development section.
I was totally psyched to learn that my inner fish is a Hammerhead Shark, and that I am…
… an extremely adapted predator that uses my oddly shaped head to increase my ability to find prey…. my vertebrae are especially designed for quick turns and maneuvering. I feed on fish, crustaceans and especially enjoy eating rays. …During the day I often swim in large schools, sometimes containing more than 100 fellow hammerheads, but I prefer to hunt alone at night.
Now I feel like I’m so much more in touch with myself. This helps to explain my magnetic attraction to the seafloor and my tendency to school in winter months.
So, what’s your inner fish? You can tell us all about it in the comments section. We’d love to know who is sharing our ocean out there. : )
