hope: UK establishes new 322,000 square miles marine reserve in the pacific ocean

The UK is to establish the largest, continuous marine reserve in the world, around the Pitcairn Islands. The Pacific zone will cover 834,000 sq km (322,000 sq miles) - more than twice the land area of the British Isles. The intention is to protect the wealth of ocean life from illegal fishing activities. A satellite "watchroom" has been established to monitor vessel activity, and to gather the information needed to prosecute unauthorised trawling.

This is awesome news! Kudos to the Brits on this brilliant action to help conserve the wildlife of our oceans!

Other massive marine reserves that have been established and that are mentioned in the article:

repairing the seaside trail

Now that the Buccaneer Landing platform has been completed, we are continuing the post-storm repair project by tackling the Seaside Trail, also damaged by last year's Polar Vortex winter storm. So far, about one third of this awesome shore-hugging walking path between Buccaneer and Secret Cove has been reconditioned. Its strong association with the good energy of the sea makes the Seaside Trail one of Paya Bay's most spiritually impactful features. I've found that it's impossible to walk this trail mindfully and not emerge from the experience spiritually transformed in a very positive way. Facing west, this trail's energy is particularly powerful right before and during the sunset hours. I'm thrilled we're getting the Seaside Trail completely back online!

dance church

Dance Church is a freestyle dance event at Paya Bay Resort where participants are encouraged to "dance their spirit." Those who surrender to the music will soon experience the blissfulness of no longer dancing, but rather *being danced* by Spirit. Sundays, 2-3:30 PM at the Ananda Pavilion, Paya Bay Resort, Roatan, Honduras. "Dance like noboby is watching."
