Mercury is a metal found naturally in the environment. Human activities, such as farming, burning coal, and using mercury in manufacturing, increase the mercury cycling through the air, water, and soil. In water, mercury changes its form and becomes methylmercury. Fish absorb this mercury. When you eat fish containing mercury, you absorb the mercury, and at high levels it can be harmful. #WeDontEatShark #WeDontEatMercury #GotMercury @turtleislandrestorationnetwork @nakaweproject @nakawe_mexico Art by our Nakawe team member @mikepaulart
A Mercury-awareness (and shark) infographic I recently did for the Nakawe Project and the Turtle Island Restoration Network as part of their Got Mercury Campaign.
I drew a gorilla on too large of a canvas and couldn’t think of anything else to draw on the other side, so I wrote a quick poem to go with it. 😀
