CNN: Successful trial of 'coral IVF' gives hope for Australia's Great Barrier Reef

"There's a very clear outcome, the higher the numbers of larvae that you put into the reef system, the more coral recruits you get," Harrison said. "The pilot studies at small scales are giving us hope that we will be able to scale this up to much larger reef scales." The 2,300km-long (1,500 miles) Great Barrier Reef -- a UNESCO World Heritage Site -- lost around half of its coral in the past few years after two mass bleaching events in 2016 and 2017, a pattern repeated on coral reefs around the world.

"by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish..."



This video puts the plastic crisis in stark terms.

anti-gravity or aerial yoga

Rebecca, a yogi from Colorado, was scouting Roatan for a place to bring an aerial yoga retreat. Wikipedia states: "Anti-gravity yoga or "aerial yoga", is a new type of yoga, originating in New York but now being practiced in several countries, which combines the traditional yoga poses, pilates, and dance with the use of a hammock." Rebecca loved Paya's Ananda Pavilion and may very well lead a retreat here in the next several months. Stay tuned.

bamboo maintenance

This week, as part of our ongoing maintenance program at the resort, we replaced the bamboo rails on the Zen Path. In addition to safety, the rails add natural beauty to the trail.
