Fellow Crew Member!
Addie and Tiffer and we need you to do something difficult, something
really tough. You might even call it "death-defying".
We need you to go shopping.
see, if the Sea of Cortez is going to defy death, we need to work
together to save it. One way is to boost eco-tourism in the region.
Eco-tourism is when people visit a place just to experience how
beautiful and wonderful it is. And then they go shopping.
follow along with the script from Episode Three ("Don't Get
Crabby, Get Shopping!") and click the links you see. Each
will give you more information and show you exactly what we learned
as we researched this important topic.
you have any more questions, please, please, please email us (firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will personally zap you an answer.
for watching -- and for reading -- and welcome aboard the voyages
of the KiSSEA Crew!

In northern Mexico, the average family
makes just $7,700 per year. Jobs in tourism (like being
a salesperson at a shop, being crew on a boat, being staff
at a hotel, being a server at a restaurant, etc.) are much
better jobs than scavenging sharks.
LOVE San Carlos

Welcome back to the Sea of Cortez! Today we’re going shopping!
Hey, you were supposed to push me in?!
Come on girls! (Addie, Mom and Allie push Tiffer in)
There is so much to do here in the Sea of Cortez. There’s
stuff like snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing, fishing and
... shopping! That’s our secret subject today.
It’s secret because we need your Moms and Dads to bring
you down to places like San Carlos. San Carlos is a beautiful
little town that loves tourists. And the more tourists who come,
the more jobs there will be for FORMER fishermen. That’s
right, FORMER fishermen. The real issue in saving the Sea of Cortez
is creating jobs in industries that protect the sea. Like tourism.
That’s why I’m being forced to shop today. Like I
told my Dad, the more I spend, the more tourism jobs I make and
the more the Sea of Cortez is protected. Pretty cool, huh?
Snorkel with sea lions! Swim with dolphins!
An Ecotour is a GREAT way to help save the Sea of Cortez.

And it’s not just shopping. I’m being forced to go

the Sol y Mar (Sun and Sea) condominiums along the San Carlos
golf course. Mom loves their kitchens AND washer-dryers! (Click
