It is my belief that the sea and all of its creatures have the profound right to claim the earth. We are the intruders and came here as an invasion of their privacy. We should be so grateful and careful in what we do to the oceans and their creatures... Yet, we still persist in destroying all that was created to be shared. Mermaids, mermen, mer-children, I do believe are there, and belong. I think that they have lived in the sea for eons and know much more about the depths than we will ever grasp. There have been creatures caught in nets of fishermen ,over the centuries, fish with broken spear heads found, and even photographs made of these mer-people. So much experimentation in the seas and the secrecy maintained that we probably never will understand completely the secrets the oceans have to tell us.
