Endangered Seashells

Sea shells sold in tourists shops

cannot be yours or mine,
and neither for gold nor art
shall beauty depart."

I'm with you all the way. We should not be taking animals and killing them so we can sell their shells to tourists as souvenirs. It is very sad. No different than killing animals to make fur coats. I volunteer at the Monterey Bay Aquarium where we have lots of beautiful live animals, and the shops right across the street sell shells and dead sea stars (starfish) that don't even come from this area; I think that many come from the Phillipines.
