Secret Life in a Micro Empire

Like underwater microscopic creatures? The Secret Life of Plankton is a fascinating, fish-narrated (sort of) TED-talk video you might be interested in. Want something a little less educational with a lot more style? Then Micro Empire could be just your thing.

In the UK we already have the Conservative Party, so placing this product could be a bit of a struggle this side of the pond...

It's helpful to see the pretty little planktons and hear, in this context, that there could be a million living things in a teaspoon of ocean. It helps me understand why the great pacific garbage patch with all its microscopic plastic bits is such a big deal.
