5 more days!

As you all know, I've had a marvelous time at MICS over the last month. Thanks to them I have been able to bring stories and photographs right to your computer....judging by how many of you follow and read the blog it appears you enjoy it - thank you.

Now, I have a favour to ask. As you know, research of this nature is costly and organisations such as the Sri Lankan blue whale project and MICS are constantly looking for money and methods to fund the work. Here is a great way to support MICS - and all it costs is two minutes of your time :) All you have to do is vote for them in the 'Call for the Wild' campaign - which ends this week....Here's a note from The dear Dr. Ramp himself -

" Vote for MICS in “Call for the Wild!” Campaign!  MICS is one of five charitable wildlife organizations participating in the Call for the Wild campaign of Jamieson Laboratories, a leading natural health product provider. The campaign lasts from August 16 to September 18 and Jamieson Laboratories will donate a total of 100,000 $ among the 5 NGOs. How much MICS will receive depends entirely on you! Everyone can vote for their favourite NGO on the Jamieson facebook page (also non-facebook members), and the NGOs will receive the equivalent of the vote share. I.e. If MICS gets 5% of the total votes, we will get 5,000$, if we get 20%, 20,000$ and so on. So please vote for us! Everyone can vote once per day – so come back every day and cast your vote for MICS! You will have to enter your name and email address, so that the system can check if you've voted already. There is a box which you can tick if you want to get information from Jamieson laboratories or not. Your data will not be used or forwarded to anybody else. The link to vote for us is:

You need to enter a Canadian Postal Code, you can follow this link to find a post code http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_G_postal_codes_of_Canada, they are always 3 numbers and 3 letters. I.e. the Station is at G0G 1V0.

Please feel free to send this link to any of your friends who might be interested in supporting us.

                                                Thank you!"
