😍🐶 Meet our newest team member - @Tuna_TheRegalBeagle
! This adorable rescue pup belongs to our research intern @ericaallen.
Here's what Erica had to say when we asked about her name: "I chose to name her Tuna as a method of education for others. I am currently a graduate student studying Marine Conservation, with a focus in highly migratory species like Tuna. What people do not know are that tunas are highly overfished and contain high levels of mercury and neurotoxins. So when people ask me why I named her Tuna I like to inform them about the commercial fishing industry, why we should care about these animals, and to choose sustainable seafood. Tuna, my dog, is helping to get the message across." 🐟 #bluespherefoundation #dogsofinstagram
