Okay so, I kinda feel like I'm cheating, since I drew the other one during the transition of the yesterday becoming a today, so I'll also upload this one for #Ilustagram, because I made it today u w u .
If it's #inspiration we're talking about here, then @ninizies is also a perfect fit for this!~♡ She's also one of my closest friends and greatest inspirations as an artist and animator! She's a great person and someone I really look up to! • v • So yeah, here it goes, a drawing of nursing dwagons with Anini!~♡

Home to 25% of all marine life and a breeding ground for around 1/4 of all fish species. Considering they cover less than 2% of the ocean floor, we should without question protect these diverse underwater cities! 🐙🦀🐡🐟🐠

*Corals have long been popular as souvenirs, for home decor, and in jewelry, but many consumers are unaware that these beautiful structures are made by living creatures. Coral reefs are some of the most biologically rich and economically valuable ecosystems on Earth, but they are threatened by an increasing array of impacts—primarily from global climate change, unsustainable fishing, and pollution. Strong consumer demand for coral, heightened over the holiday season, is another factor that is contributing to the decline of coral reefs. Each year, the U.S. imports tons of dead coral for home decorations and curios.
*Did you know that corals also help to protect life and property? The coral reef structure buffers shorelines against waves, storms, and floods, helping to prevent loss of life, property damage, and erosion. When reefs are damaged or destroyed, the absence of this natural barrier can increase the damage to coastal communities from normal wave action and violent storms.
*Corals grow very slowly, are extremely long-lived, and take years to reach maturity. It takes corals decades or longer to create reef structures. Once coral is harvested—especially when it's extracted at a young age—surrounding coral beds often do not recover. That's why it's best to leave corals and other marine life on the reef. Remember: corals are already a gift. Don't give them as presents.
