Hi Everyone. I want to raise funding for Grey nurse sharks which are critically endangered. And I also want to grow the pot of funding for threatened species recovery. We all have a role to play fighting extinction. So I want Edge Pledge to take off as a new crowd-funding mechanism for Australia's endangered animals and plants. Please support me by voting for one of my challenges.
Calling all Earthlings to help me help mantas out: I'll cycle to work dressed as a manta, photograph sunrises helluva early, or do a sea-themed cover of a Ray Charles tune.
Together with my bestie Angus, we've chosen 3 challenges - we'll film us completing the one you vote for! Do you wanna see us handcuffed together for 24 hours (yes even toilet breaks), run 300 km in 1 month, or get matching nose piercings?
I'm either going to 1) Bleach hair white to look like bleached coral 2) Spend a day tangled in fishing wire or 3) Wear a woollen jumper for 24 hours in summer to experience an extreme heatwave.
I'm either going to 1) Clean out a frog exhibit at the zoo, 2) Survive on a froggy diet for a whole weekend eating only insects and water, or 3) Wear yellow and black striped budgie smugglers during a segment of Weekend Sunrise
I'm going to either 1) Be referred to as "Myrtle The Turtle" in five very public ways, 2) Crawl out of Bondi Beach surf in a turtle suit, or 3) Make a dish out of sea cucumbers, shellfish and seaweed and make the Weekend Sunrise team eat on air.
