Monarch Butterfly

Monarch Butterfly

 

Hello everyone.

     As you know, I am writing a new animal song called  I Almost Kissed a Butterfly.  I started writing it after seeing a beautiful butterfly while i was taking a walk.  Most of my  animal songs are about an animal I have met or an animal I find interesting.  I think that butterflies are beautiful creatures and whenever I see them I feel happy inside.  My feeling of happiness and my love for butterflies are what made me want to write a song about them.

     I am still working on the song and If you have any ideas to add to the song, i would love to hear from you. Our fan Sierra has sent us this: 

        Purple, blue, yellow and orange too  the colors of the butterfly

           are beautiful and look like a rainbow in the sky   Thank you Sierra!

Thank you for listening!

Sincerely,

Birdsong

p.s  Here are the words, or “lyrics” to the chorus of “I Almost Kissed a Butterfly:”

 It was a near miss but I almost kissed a butterfly.

It was a near miss but I almost kissed a butterfly.

It flew out of the sky above,

And I gave that butterfly some love.

It was a near miss but I almost kissed a butterfly.

Dear Friends,

Did you know there is a section of the Pacific Ocean twice the size of the continental United States that is called the Great Pacific Garbage Patch? My friends at the Surfrider Foundation say that “100 million tons of plastic” swirl in that patch. There is so much plastic in the water that it outnumbers zooplankton by six to one! The bad news is that this plastic ends up in the stomachs of my friends, the marine birds and ocean animals. In fact, one million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals around the world die each year due from swallowing or getting tangled in plastic.

Plastic is made from petroleum and it lasts almost forever. Every piece of plastic ever made is still in existence. That’s why it’s so important to me that all people try to greatly reduce their use of plastics, especially plastics we use only once and throw away.  You can make a difference and help protect the ocean, beaches and my friends who live in the sea. Here are some things that you and your families can do:

1. Use reusable bottles for water and other drinks. (By using just one reusable bottle, you will keep 167 single-use plastic bottles from entering the environment.

2. Bring cloth or reusable bags to the grocery store to carry your things. (For each reusable bag you use, it will save approximately 400 plastics from being used).

3. Reuse or recycle the plastic bags you already have. (For every thirteen plastic bags you don’t use, you will save enough petroleum to drive a car one mile).

4. Learn more and share ideas with others on how to reduce plastic use.

5. Don’t litter. Ever. (But you knew that already)

Thank you for helping to keep the ocean clean.  After all, the ocean is my home.

Sincerely,

Oxford the Octopus
