Did you know that lobsters can live to be 100 years old?!
Like dolphins and many other animals, lobsters use complex signals to explore their surroundings and establish social relationships. Just as we go on vacation, they take long-distance seasonal journeys and are known to travel 100 miles or more each year!
One of the most common ways to kill and cook lobsters is by boiling them alive in a pot of water. Don’t let people fool you about lobsters—scientists have determined that lobsters do feel pain and can often be seen scratching frantically at the side of the pot trying to get out.
So now that summer has begun, please remember never to eat lobsters or any other animal, and tell your family and friends to do the same!

I'm 15 years old. I love to juggle, bowl, do stage crew, play the piano, and run. I also love to help people out, and give back to the community as much as I can. I am part of a juggling organization that teaches children with disabilities, cancers, and those who are blind how to juggle. I volunteer at an animal shelter in Princeton. I am currently a sophomore in high school right now. Extracurricular activities that I do are: Winter/Spring Track, Stage Crew, and Cross Country. I have a pet dog, his name is Dash, and he is a long-haired Dachshund.
