Flirt With Edgar

Flirt with Edgar for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s day. This is the day you have to forget your insecurities and step to to be a man /or a woman and  ask that hottie to hook up. This is THE day that being sensitive and expressing your feelings IS cool.

But that being said just stepping up to someone and asking them out on  a date is not so easy so that’s why I made my new T-shirt. The great thing about it is everyone loves Turtles so just wearing a T-Shirt with me on the front is a great conversation starter and when you tell them that for every t-shirt sold there will be a donation to a turtle preservation fund then they are happy too.

So just to help you along on that date I will also give you 5 turtle facts that every turtle lover should know.

  1. Turtles can live to be more that 100 years old. The oldest recorded turtle was 180 years old found in Tonga,
  2. Turtle species have been on this earth for more than 200 Million years
  3. Turtles have good eyesight and a good sense of smell
  4. Turtles are found on very continent on earth excepting Antartica.
  5. Turtles have been to space. In 1968, the Soviet Union launched a space probe carrying a number of animals, including two turtles.

So what more to be said. YOLO get on with it and Fliirt With Edgar!  Buy your T-shirt here.

Edgar’s blog: International Penguin Day 2016

International Penguin Day 2016

Penguins in the southern hemisphere are facing real issues with their habitat and global warming. Let’s remember them on this International Penguin Day. It has taken a long, long time to get the attention my flightless, feathered friends deserve even though 75% of all humans claim penguins to be their favourite animals.

To help my arctic friends some UK scientists have asked for some help with the study of photo images so that they can gain insight into how climate change is really affecting penguin populations.

Seventy five cameras have been installed near penguin territories in Antarctica and its surrounding islands to figure out what’s happening with local populations. Each of the cameras takes hourly photos and the amount of adorable photos produced is too much for the scientists to get trough.  This is where you come in. Sign up for PenguinWatch 2.0

Just logon. Look at the photos and identify adult penguins, chicks and eggs on each photo.

By helping with this work you will not only help my friends the penguins but you will also be helping the scientists to understand the effects of climate change on the whole area. This is because the penguin populations are a good “marker” for the vitality of the area in general.

I just love penguins, they are adorable. Penguins are cool! Logon and do your bit for your fellow Earth Citizen.

Edgar’s blog: Nessie in the River Thames?

Could Nessie be Edgar?

Nessie normally lives in the cold dark waters of Loch Ness in Scotland. This last week in UK several videos have been posted of a large figure floating or swimming in the River Thames.

There is much speculation regarding these images.

The YouTube clips, show a long dark shape which appears to have two humps emerging from the river. After a brief glimpse it disappears back beneath the murky waters in front of The O2 in Greenwich. What could it be and has Nessie indeed moved to a new location on the River Thames?

Whales, seals and the like are known in the River Thames. In fact more than 2,500 whales and dolphins have been spotted in central London during the last 10 years. One suggestion is that the images may show a pod of Dolphins moving along the river.

Another intelligent person thought it may actually be one of my relatives, a fellow turtle just finding his way.

Whatever it is, Nessie or not it has reminded us all yet again of the mystery of Loch Ness and it’s monster. Are you a believer? Do you not yet know the Story? Check it out and remember, if you have evidence of the real Loch Ness monster, please call.

Cheers,

Edgar.

Edgar’s blog: cool accommodation for Glastonbury festival

Cool, a tent made of cardboard. Students at the University of Delft have developed a festival tent that is made of cardboard. Totally bio-degradable. How chill is that? Inspired by a picture of the Glastonbury festival after it had finished. These two students decided go ahead and market the idea one of them had for his last year design project at Delft TU.

This tent has been described as the “The Ferrari under the cardboard boxes”.

It saddens me that this tent is needed and that the responsible peeps just can’t take their rubbish home with them. But hey, hats off to these lads who have found an easy way out for a lot of those lazy peeps out there.

Just one more step before you all have the chance to have your house with you all the time like me. How cool is that 😉

Edgar’s blog: Let’s work together and save turtles

Hi Peeps,

Just got back from a fantastic biz trip to the island known as “the jewel of the Indian ocean”, Sri Lanka.

It is hot! Lot’s of exciting things going on down there. I could tell you loads but I wanna just zoom in on something which is very important to me. A team of peeps who are doing great work.

That is the team of Santha Fernando at the Kosgoda Turtle Care Program. Sea turtles are endangered species world wide due to human lifestyle and activities. Santha and his team work hard as the Kosgoda centre. Their aim “to protect sea turtle eggs and improve hatching rates”.

They work hard not only saving the turtle eggs but also helping turtles which have become tangled in fishing nets and the like.

The work at Kosgoda Turtle Care Program is all privately funded.

If you feel as much love for turtles as I do and want to help this super team of humans, then when you buy my products, type in “Kosgoda” as your purchase coupon and I will make a donation for every purchase made by you to our friends in Kosgoda.

And don’t forget, if you are on holiday in Sri Lanka, drop in and see the work they are doing.

If you have time, donate a couple of days and help them out.

Let’s work together and save the turtles.

Cheers to you all,

Edgar
