  •   motherearth1981 How can I start the ban in my city? 1w
  •   amceron We already have that in order I think. Non of our stores have plastic bags. You can buy paper bags or the material reusable bags. That's most of the valley except North Hollywood, Arleta and parts of Van Nuys. 1w
  •   amceron None* 1w
  •   innerconflicts @amceron we do have a plastic bag ban in LA County. I think is to go statewide with the ban. 1w
  •   cmbaj03 You are all nuts! Fires, drought, high taxes, unemployment, but you are doing a great job against the evil plastic bags! 1w

healthebay These by-the-wind-sailors (Velella velella) are all washed up!

Cousins of the Portuguese man 'o war, these #cnidarians float on the open #ocean, preying on plankton. Harmless to humans.
Normally found in warmer waters, they're arriving in droves along the Pacific coast, from #SantaMonica to #Oregon.

healthebay Our #seahorses were really hamming it up this morning.
We think they're a little jealous of all the #SharkWeek love.

Come visit ALL of our #Aquarium critters when you attend a shark feeding today at 2:30 or Sunday at 3:30!

healthebay This is what #water quality testing in our lab looks like
Our #scientists put samples in these vacuum-sealed packs and shine UV light on them to illuminate any contamination
The brighter the #blue, the dirtier the sample.
We can't tell you where this sample is from...but you can guess!
