New Marine Park Planned
legaleagle - 8/06/2014 7:48 AM
Right now, the US government is receiving public comments on whether or not to create the world’s largest network of Marine Protected Areas in the Pacific Ocean. President Obama is under enormous pressure from an influential fishing lobby to water down the plan and leave most of this area unprotected. We can’t let that happen coral reefs are dying, and fish are disappearing from our seas. Scientists say the best solution is to declare large areas off limits to all exploitation so that marine lif...

jbali - 10/04/2013 4:17 PM
The Journey It began the morning of September 7th 2013, my attempt to being the first person to scuba dive the highest named lake in the Continental United States; Pacific Tarn Lake, 13,420 feet above sea level. We arrived before dawn to Spruce Creek Trail-head. My destination was less than 2,400 feet above us, but little did I know how far away that would soon seem. Leaving the trail-head, I adjusted my backpack for the last time and began my journey alongside my hiking partner, Mike Renner. Mi...

Divers assist a dolphin in need while night diving in Hawaii Divers assist a dolphin in need while night diving in Hawaii
Blade - 1/26/2013 4:02 PM
Earlier this month, while on an nighttime swim with manta rays off the coast of Hawaii, a group of divers were surprised to see a single Bottlenose dolphin approach and linger among them, though it appeared unable to swim normally. Only after the dolphin continued to circle near around him so insistently did diving instructor Keller Laros begin to realize the animal wasn’t merely being curious — it was actually asking them for help. The dolphin’s movements were restricted because it had become e...
