Below: meet our new friend Gretchen Googe
Special thanks to our friend Gretchen Googe for her dedication to saving the nautilus! Gretchen has been supporting Save The Nautilus for more than a year now with all sorts of creative ideas. Gretchen just celebrated her 9th birthday with a potluck fundraiser and she & her friends donated all of the money to saving the beautiful chambered nautilus! Way to go Gretchen!!! keep inspiring us!!!
One of Gretchen's great ideas (that we love) is to petition Endangered Species Chcoloate to make a nautius bar to raise awareness. If you agree with us that its a great idea email them at:
