Save The Sawfish Video Podcast

I’m becoming increasingly aware that there are different sorts of Internet users. Those that I identify most with are text-based, looking for information through word searches, trying to piece together different sources to get a bigger picture of their world.

There are others, however, who are more social and exploratory. There are people who want to watch and listen instead of reading, people who regard the Internet more as a new kind of television, with social interactivity, than like a new kind magazine with interactive information.

Thinking of that different approach some people take to online media, I decided to follow up the article written yesterday by the Green Man about the plight of sawfish and the people of Bimini with a quick video summary, available here and on ITunes video podcast but also to upload elsewhere on social networking sites like Gather and YouTube.

Engage in a boycott of the Hilton hotel brands listed below, all connected to the company that decided to build the Bimini Bay Resort ecoblemish, and you’ll be taking action on environmental issues, local community issues, and issues of corporate accountability.

Do yourself and the sawfish a favor, and avoid the following hotels:

Conrad Hotels and Resorts
Embassy Suites
Hampton Inn
Hilton Garden Inn
Homewood Suites
The Waldorf-Astoria

    I hate to be negative, but it seems that there has been no groundswell of support. Most people don’t even know the sawfish exists, much less that it’s in trouble. And Bimini? If it’s in the Bahamas, that means that the islands exist for no other purpose but for Americans’ fun vacation getaways, which require only light-colored sand beaches and blue-colored water, with alcohol and a coconut tree.

    Sad, but that’s the American mind these days.
