Tiny
fish are a big deal in Texas. Wildlife biologists are trudging through the
muddy bed of the Brazos River, rescuing endangered minnows who are trapped in small pools of water—all
that remain of the river after the state’s worst drought in decades. Scientists
are taking the minnows to a fish hatchery until the Brazos starts flowing
again.

Fortunately
for the rest of us, saving fish doesn’t have to include donning waders and
slogging through muddy muck. It can be as easy as refusing to buy them from pet
stores and relegating them to a tiny bowl to die slowly from lack
of oxygen and being poisoned by their own waste. If you already have an
aquarium, make sure it is the proper size  for your fish.

And,
of course, you can save dozens of sea kittens every year simply by
leaving them off your
plate
.
