Shrimp n' Lobster are thrilled to be taking part in the Night of Ideas event at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles. "The theme, "facing our Time" will be exploring challenges around ecological and climate change through the lenses of science, nature and art." Look for Shrimp n' Lobster in the Nature Lab on the ground floor! They will be hosting a Color-It-In Sea Creature workshop as well as a photo booth where you can pose with your salty BFF's, Shrimp n' Lobster! Don't limit your experience to just one area, as much as we love seeing our creative and Eco-conscious friends, be sure to diversify yourselves and experience the beautiful language of French in the booth just next to us! Not to mention there will be a beautiful array of speakers, music and even a vegan fashion show!

Look under the Ocean surface and you will find thousands of golf balls littered on the ocean floor near famed Pebble Beach Golf course. This is a stark reminder to think twice before you send a hard drive out to sea. Golf balls are plastic and release toxins, not to mention micro plastics into the ocean as they slowly break down. Luckily hero's like Alex Weber are picking up these toxic eyesores! Check out his story HERE!
Why is Joshua Tree National Park so amazing?! It's the trees that this glorious park is named after! These prickly wacky stubs average lifespan is 500 years, but the oldest is calculated to be around 1000 years old. That's 1000 more reasons to love and continue to protect them!
If you pass through Joshua Tree while the government is shut down remember to pack out what you pack in. Leave no trace behind! And please, leave the trees alone, they've been there a long time. Make that a general rule of thumb. The trees and the Park Rangers will thank you for it.

This film was SCARY! And we love Steven Spielberg for creating such a fishy-foe. But let's talk about the real threat! And that's humans to sharks. Sadly numbers have declined due to over fishing and the demand for their fins. If you don't know what shark finning is check it out HERE!
