Perhaps you would consider adding this to a mission: http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1607...

Thanks! I was on my first Field Expedition last summer in Baja, Mexico for my Global Field Program Master's Degree through Miami University in Ohio. We got to snorkel with it. It was awesome! thanks for the welcome. I can't wait to show this site to my fourth graders!
