you need some more "attracting" exhibits

It's all glowy and i think we need more glowy things in the world.
Virginia,
United States
Do this thing!
Washington,

Because we don't hear about all the little things disappearing, whereas seals and turtles get some attention cause we can see them.
Maryland,
United States
I think it would be cool and interesting
Wisconsin,
United States
Because it looks cool
Ohio,
United States
I think the fact that it can be seen in the dark may interest young children, who may feel affraid of the dark.
North Carolina,
United States
If the base of the food web is eliminated the rest of the chain will soon be next.
Maryland,
United States
It looks very mysterious. I would enjoy seeing this one.
Virginia,

Climate change affects even the smallest creatures! People need to know.

Deep ocean is important because things may vanish before we even have a chance to observe them
Mexico
I think this photo deserves being exhibited because this beautiful being is almost unknown and it shows the delicate balance that is being destroyed. Big animals depend on smaller ones to survive
Virginia,
United States
I think it looks cool and that not many people know about it. I think it would be very cool to learn about.

The mystery, the unknowns of the ocean are many. Entire species are dying before we even have a single photo, or even awareness of their existence. This creature is part of a food chain we need. We are killing the ocean that sustains us all.

Pteropods are not well known yet part of our ecosystem... they are fragile and yet they light the way in the dark...

they sya if all life on earth was killed by a meteor or other natural causes, deep sea creatures like this would survive

These beautiful Sea butterflies also nicknamed as ‘Sea angels’ as they live up to it, swims around the ocean lighting up the dark unknown depths of the blue while unknown by them faces the threat of extinction, not probably or might in the future but NOW if we don’t take precautions. As they swim around with their transparent illuminated bodies unprotected without a shell needing Cliones for protection which by any chance not found their chances of facing a certain doom being higher and as mentioned above due to the changes in ocean chemistry the Shelled Pteropods that the Sea butterfly consumes being destroyed affects fish and squid that depend on the Naked sea butterfly makes it an excellent choice to be exhibited at Portraits of Planet Ocean for a ‘ Vanishing World’.
