           3) CyberDiver.com Shark Feeding Survey - Latest Update!

           Thank you so much for the response! The Reef Relief online
           activists (1500 strong) really get the job done!

           Last count: To Ban Fish Feeding: 432
                       To Allow Feeding:     63
           This represents a 7:1 ratio favoring the ban!

           The following quote is from the Cyber Diver Editor, just
           days after we let you know what YOU could do to STOP the
           feeding of Marine Wildlife in All Florida Waters:

           "Although normally we upload results once every day, due
           to the extremely high volume of votes that are now being
           submitted to Cyber Diver, we are trying to upload results
           on an hourly or semi-hourly basis."

           If you still haven't added your voice to the survey, the
           following link will direct you to the Cyber Diver Survey.
           There is a small text box at near the top of the page.
           Just follow the simple instructions. To VOTE, goto:
