  1. Thanks for your blog on Namibia seal hunt. We have shared it on our Facebook page. If everyone was writing and tweeting these issues people would become aware and outraged a lot faster. Regards. Pat Dickens, The Seals Of Nam

      Thanks so much for the share! I really wanted to write about it after reading Hunting the Hunters and becoming more aware of the situation. I hope more people can understand what is going on.

    I would like to print one of your photos and use it in a printmaking gallery show on water. It is the photo with the plastic bottle holder in the foreground, highlighting garbage underwater. May I have your permission to use the image?

      Hi Cas,
      Unfortunately, this is not my image but if you would like to ask permission for it, I have found a number of links with the image that might be able to direct you to the right person to ask. Try http://www.rdmag.com/news/2015/02/researcher-calculate-plastic-waste-ocean and http://www.news.ucsb.edu/2015/014985/ocean-plastic

      Thank you for visiting my blog. Good luck with the show.

      Penny Banham
