I thought some folks might get a kick out of this...

Mexican Wrestler Goes to the Mat for Endangered Sea Turtles (SciAm)



    Marine turtles are imperiled and Mexico's supreme wrestling star, El Hijo del Santo ("Son of the Saint"), is fighting on their behalf. A media magnet, he is using his influence to promote a campaign against eating sea turtles, a massive effort designed to persuade people in Mexico to protect rather than eat the turtles that visit their shores each year to spawn.

    Populations of sea turtles have undergone a steep decline in the past 50 years, even though they are protected by the Mexican government and the U.S. Endangered Species Act of 1973.

Interesting responses. I wasn't specifically thinking of the Undertaker, but yeah, I guess he's one of the main people to benefit. Although I wonder sometimes if people cheer him because he's not dead yet more than anything.
