I  think they  need to  stop thinking  about  it  and   start doing it.  As  it is  this  poor  thing   stands  a good  chance  of  dying  just  from the  contaminants  in the  water. The  longer it  takes  the  more  at   risk  it is .   What the hell is  so hard  to  understand  about that? 

If  it  were a  person it  would have  been a  done  deal already…….I  mean  they  have  an  Aquarium  that has   marine  experts   , they  have  choppers .  So  what’s the  hold  up?

I  have a  sneaking   suspiscion  it  has  more to  do  with  money  than an  actiual action plan.
