    This seems like it might be something that TONMO can poke the Oz government about. ?

    Anyone know what species this would be, or is it a group thing?

    By the time all the cuttlelfish have flipped over, underside of their mantle up, it'll be too late to say "Ooops, we screwed up." What a great world we live in.

    I'd be all over that. Once it's together, submit it via the media for added exposure. :wink:

    I definitely think we should pull together as a community do to something about this. A simple online petition to start, maybe write some letters and make them available online, see if its possible to get some form of promotion on TONMO front page. More thoughts (and action) later. :roll:

    Cheers!
