the mermaid has been very busy lately researching with landfolk sages. the mermaid’s dictionary tells her that they call themselves ‘earth scribes’. through them, the mermaid has heard of a petition that landfolk can sign to stop other landfolk from scraping clear the oceanfloor for the purpose of fishing. there are some practices that are acceptable to merfolk for feeding oneself, but such large-scale exploitation is certainly not.

here is a link to the petition: 48 HOURS TO END OCEAN CLEAR-CUTS
