    Dear Ms. Fakhoorian,
    I work at a Wildlife Park in Florida, and we have Duckweed on our alligator enclosure. I want to include your positive uses of Duckweed I read on the internet. May I have your permission to include it in our volunteer newsletter? I will certainly include your name and the research you do.
    Thank you,
