The Blue Planet Society (BPS) is an organization based in the United States dedicated to the spread of awareness of this world's oceans, as well as the many species living within them. It has a rather humble beginning, with many of the just 20 starting species consisting solely of smaller fish species, but it is hoped that the society will slowly branch out to become a chain of aquaria around the United States, especially in heavy tourist areas such as Orlando, San Diego, Chicago, New York City, Honolulu, and Juneau.

With the approval of the Round Table of Zoos, Incorporated, it is hoped that the first aquarium of the Blue Planet Society will break ground in Chicago, Illinois, featuring a wide variety of species, from penguins, to pinnipeds, to monsters of the deep. Once the construction process begins, we'll keep everyone updated.

All animals that were acquired pre-RTZI accreditation are now in a quarantine area as they await the construction of Blue Planet's first location. After receiving pressure from New York Aquarium, as well as SeaWorld parks, Six Flags Discovery Kingdom, and Brookfield Zoo, we have decided to set up where there are relatively few aquariums to further our goal of conservation. The first Blue Planet will be in a tropical part of the United States - Phoenix, Arizona. However, we managed to snag a spot near Cape Canaveral and will construct the first aquarium of the company there. We will continue to work with the Hawaiian Center for Oceanic Studies during this time, despite the fact that they are an independent organization. But with this quarantine, we're now opening a trade center.

We have purchased a number of small fish species as well as experienced a baby boom. Two of the capybaras - Yaniela and Jeyra, are currently pregnant. Cocoa, a California sea lion, is also pregnant. Two flamingo eggs, laid by Magenta and Ivory, are currently close to hatching while two eggs to Fuschia and Misty have already hatched. The chicks are being raised before we send any females to other zoos, males will be kept unless otherwise requested for breeding using a male other an Ferdinand (even if they are his sons, we need to establish pairs instead of a harem).

The capybaras have given birth, as well as the California sea lion. Our other two flamingo eggs have hatched, and are confirmed to both be a male and female.

Jeyra the capybara's pup has been named Jabi. It's been such a long time since I posted that he's already an adult, he'll be place in the available tab of the trade center. Jabi was born at the HQ of the Blue Planet Society, since his mother was pregnant before the capybaras were scheduled to move into Blue Planet Cape Canaveral. Jeyra has since followed Qina, Kesari, Opelia, and Jonesi.

Yaniela's pup, meanwhile, has been named Wilnelia. The pup is a female, unlike Jabi, and was also born at the HQ in Tampa, Florida. Wilnelia is also grown out, but instead of trading her, it's been decided that she and her mother may eventually either become a separate breeding population in the Amazonian Blue Planet, set to open in London, or members of Jonesi's social group in . Wilnelia was sired by Keylor rather than Jonesi, the primary capybara breeder.

Cocoa's pup, a California sea lion, has been named Cacao. The pup is male and was sired by Rocky. The pup and his mother are still with another adult female, Angel, at HQ. Rocky, Gabby, and Surf have been sent to Cape Canaveral, and will shortly be followed by Cocoa and Angel. Cacao will most likely become a performer in another location.

One of the Greater flamingo chicks is a male hatched to Magenta and Ferdinand. The chick is named Indigo. A second female chick hatched to Ivory and Ferdinand has been named Indie. Indigo, Montenegro, and Ferdinand are planned to pair with a particular female - Ferdinand with Fuschia, Montenegro with Magenta, and Indigo with Misty. Ivory will be purchased a mate with time.

Finally, we also witnessed the birth of two Northern river otter pups, both male, to the breeding pair on loan to us from Casey. The oldest is named Iriquois, while the younger sibling has been named Quebec. The brothers are currently for sale in the trade center and we're trying to get a third pup out of their parents now that both are adults.

EDIT: We just had a manatee birth at the HQ as well, the mother and calf are now joining Sanibel and Sarasota in Cape Canaveral. The calf was born to parents Skye and Bulldozer. It's a male and it has received the name, Cirrus.

I try to make the press room briefings quick, if people like to see pictures of babies, I'm sorry, but I can post images on any of the Blue Planet Society's zoos or aquariums. Problem with that is that some are at our headquarters, so the babies that are there won't really get any coverage.

Here are the baby booms we've had thus far...

Kesari, one of our capybaras, is pregnant with a presumed pair of pups sired by Jonesi.

Our rookery of California sea lions has been busy. We've had four new pups - one to each female and all sired by Rocky, our male. The oldest is Halo, a male born to Angel. Our first female pup in the organization, and our third pup ever in the organization, is Tsunami, daughter of Surf. We also had a pair born on the same day (in-game) - Cream, to Cocoa, and Gemini, to Gabby. All four pups are doing well, and due to conflicts between the now mature Cacao and his father, Rocky, he is at our HQ until further notice.

Feather, one of our Southern rockhopper penguins, as well as Hope, one of our African penguins, have laid eggs. This is Feather's second chick, her first being our adult male, Falkland. The sire of this chick is Walker. Meanwhile, Hope's chick is sired by Tux.

Our Greater flamingos have been paired up, however, rather than the expected pairing of Fuschia and Ferdinand, Fuschia has paired with Indigo, Ferdinand's and Magenta's son.

Two of our zebra sharks have had a group of three pups. All three pups will be named with time. One of our nurse sharks as well as our female Chain catshark and our female Dwarf gourami are also pregnant.

Montenegro has moved to partner with a female at the headquarters, Magenta. We're still waiting on a mate for our fourth female, Misty.

All animals have returned to the quarantine facility, due to a computer crash, Blue Planet Society Cape Canaveral as well as the quarantine facility have been lost. The quarantine facility has been rebuilt, but we do not plan on recreating our park in Cape Canaveral. Our plan is to turn our attention to Sydney, Australia, instead.
