Pretty much nothing.

But… April is right around the corner (hopefully so is spring) and I recently learned that April is World Habitat Awareness Month. That means this month I will be celebrating the Earth’s diverse natural habitats, but also learning more about them and their fragile nature. That includes where Plankton live and thrive.

April 10 is also National Sibling Day. My sister, Kate, is currently studying Biology at the College of William and Mary and trying to raise funds to continue her research on Plankton. You can help her research her funding goal by donating any amount!

If you can’t donate at this time, please considering resharing this post.

To celebrate these two holidays, Beagles and Bargains will host a week’s worth of PLANKTON TRIVIA!

Look out for a new question every day posted on the blog and Facebook.
