Triops are regarded as a living #fossil with records dating back to 300 million years ago.
Found in small and temporary freshwater pools, #triops are used in #japan to consume weeds in rice paddies and being used against the West Nile virus, the same genus of the Zika & dengue virus, which they consumed the Culex mosquito larvaes.

The "we've always done it this way" pattern of thinking has taken us to a very dangerous place folks.
Let us lay it out for you.
According to WWF Living Planet Index (LPI) data projections, world wildlife population decline of the LPI approaches 90% by 2025.
The masses then say, "This won't stop us from eating our meat and dairy. We've always done it this way!" We then present to them the hard truth that the leading cause of global deforestation and rainforest depletion is global animal agriculture. "That science probably isn't right. And by the way, we've always done it this way," they respond.
We plead with them because a mass extinction of species is now underway- we remind them that up to 200 species are going extinct every day.
We need their help.
And the last response we hear them say, "Sorry, we've always done it this way."

MAKE EARTH GREAT AGAIN!
A beer that’s a force or nature and a force for good. BrewDog’s Imperial Saison with Glacier water and Arctic Cloudberries is certainly a kick in the right direction!
Boundless spice and citrus on the nose with soft caramelised banana on the palate. Hints of tartness ebb and flow with a classic dry Saison finish. And you’ll feel even better knowing that all proceeds go towards 10:10 Climate Action (A charity running programs to tackle Climate Change)
Available now to have in or takeaway!
