It’s the last day to vote for me to win $10,000 for shark conservation research!

Today is the last day to vote for the winner of the 2011 blogging scholarship, which provides $10,000 towards research and education expenses to the winner. The final decision comes down to votes, and I need your help for the last push! Please vote for me (my real name, as it’s entered on the voting page, is David Shiffman). If I win, the money will be used to support my shark conservation research, including adopting a satellite tagged shark in the name of you, the readers of Southern Fried Science! The voting page is here – please vote for me, and please share the voting page with your friends and fellow ocean lovers! Thanks for all of your support throughout this process!
