Coral Reef Preservation Paramount at Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives

Coral Reefs at Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives

Marine conservation efforts are a priority at this island resort.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, April 30, 2020 / — Grand Park Kodhipparu Maldives was Green Globe Certified for the first time in 2020.

Marine conservation efforts are a priority at this island resort. Peter Pringle, Resident Marine Biologist at Grand Park Kodhippar details some of the key environmental initiatives at the property.

Since opening in 2017, Grand Park Kodhipparu, Maldives has established several coral gardening projects, where coral pieces from the House Reef are attached to purposely built underwater structures.

Upon arrival at the marina area, guests are welcomed by an artificial reef installed below the reception deck. This tunnel-shaped metal frame had several small pieces of coral attached to it during the first year of hotel operations and is now attracting additional marine life such as juvenile fishes, some already around twenty centimetres in diameter, that have developed into large colonies.

Coral nurseries have also been installed in areas of the natural House Reef. The largest of these is a mid-water rope nursery, containing 100 pieces of attached coral, that was built up over 2019 and is set in deep water near the overwater villas. Rope nurseries effectively lift attached coral pieces to grow several feet off the sea bottom, away from fine sand and competitor organisms that might normally prevent their optimal growth and survival.

Many coral nurseries use fragments taken from colonies living on the reef, removed from the ‘donor’ colony and attached in a different area to grow into a new colony (similar to how cuttings are used to propagate plants). However, as Maldivian reefs are still recovering from mass coral die-offs experienced in recent marine heat waves, we prefer to leave the surviving colonies on the reef completely intact. Instead, fragments broken off by strong waves are used for the feeding activities of marine animals or other actions. Collecting these “corals of opportunity” enhances the long-term survival prospects of each coral. We remove corals that are covered by sand and likely to die and transfer them to the mid-water rope nursery.

The resort has also devised a new interactive educational reef activity. A different style of nursery, consisting of frames holding coral fragments attached to cement pieces, was recently established and allows guests to actively participate in coral gardening. Coral fragments are attached to cone-shaped cement pieces above water using a special waterproof glue. Participants are able to swim their ‘baby coral’ out from shore to place it in the nursery. According to Peter, participants can better understand how coral colonies live and grow from the physical action of planting a coral, something not always easy to explain by simply using diagrams and pictures.

Ultimately, after several years growth in the nursery environment the corals are ready for transplanting. While coral gardening is certainly not a replacement for conservation actions needed for the continued survival of coral reefs, such as reducing carbon emissions to lessen climate change effects and improving water quality, it is constructive in increasing awareness of reef conservation and coral biology.

Single Cover

What Music

During the current global pandemic crisis, Dr James releases his debut EDM single to spread hope to millions and combat fear throughout the world.

BOSTON, MA, USA, April 10, 2020 / — Missionary and founder of WhatTV, Dr James Sideras, releases his first music single on Fri April 10th. He is the first Christian missionary in the world to become an EDM artist. Based in Boston, his goal is to inspire a generation by combining dynamic electronic music with a clear message of hope. This message is especially relevant with the global threat of pandemic Covid-19 that is frightening billions of people all over the world. His single, ‘Name Above,’ is part of a five-song EP that’s being released on May 8th. The EP was written and co-produced with Lukus Simari, who gained two no. 1 hits in Africa, and has worked with Grammy award winning artists.

According to PRS for music, EDM is the fastest growing festival genre in the world, representing 40% of the world’s top 100 album sales. Since there are relatively few Christian artists in the EDM space, Dr James’s EP fills a niche in the market. His message is that faith overcomes fear, and only by calling on the name of Jesus can we save both ourselves, and our crisis-stricken world. His music is being released by WhatMusic group, a brand-new Christian label based in Boston, MA. Their mission is to produce and distribute gospel-centric EDM music that brings healing and transformation to everyone who hears it.

As a missionary and entrepreneur, in 2019 Dr James started a new TV network called WhatTV. It has already become one of the largest Christian TV networks in the world, with channels in English, Arabic and Hindu. New channels planned for 2020 include the Philippines, Greek, and Brasilian speaking nations. All videos are on demand, and streamed through YouTube, Amazon Fire, Roku, Apple TV, iOS and Android apps. Content includes, vlogs, podcasts, challenges, cooking, gardening, gaming and more.

Why Gardening is a Great Hobby to Pick Up while Social Distancing

Water feature in a garden landscaping

The sky is the limit with how you want your garden to look!

Reasons why starting a garden is beneficial to your life for during and after COVID-19

Encourage…to play outdoors — it’s great for physical and mental health…”

— The Centers for Disease Control

MORRISVILLE, PA, US, April 6, 2020 / — It is obvious to everyone that the recent COVID-19 events have us all stressed. Everyone had work, school or plans that are now canceled. With all this new free time you may be wondering…what do I do now? While it’s nice to catch up on all those shows you’ve been meaning to watch it is also very important to be active and get outside as well. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) actually recommends going outdoors to stay physically and mentally healthy. So now you might be asking…what can I do outside that is still inline with social distancing? Simple: start a garden!

Gardening is a productive use of your new-found free time that will not only make your social distancing time more bearable but also continue to be a benefit after it's over. You are probably in your house anyway, so why not help yourself and your property at the same time? First, let’s talk about how gardening benefits your personal health.

– Being outside and working in the dirt is a proven mood-booster! How? Well, being out in the sun, even on less sunny days still increases your exposure to Vitamin D. This vitamin is exactly why those who suffer from seasonal depressed feel much better once winter ends. The soil has natural and safe bacteria that act as anti-depressants. Also doing the physical work of gardening is similar to going for a workout, it helps relieve stress and gets your endorphins going!

– Gardening helps boost your immune system! Having a strong immune system is important now more than ever. The same vitamins and soil bacteria that help boost your mood are also known for boosting your immune system! The fresh air certainly doesn't hurt either and even when feeling bad, getting fresh air can help you get better faster. The same physical activity is going to help your body feel its best and thus is better at fending off illnesses.

– Bummed that your gym had to close? Well, gardening can be your new workout! Spending at least an hour outside working on your property can count as an extensive aerobic exercise. As your working out your body, you are also working out your mind! Gardening has been known to be mentally stimulating and if often recommended to decrease your risk of dementia. You can double up on the mental stimulation but listening to a podcast while you work!

– Depending on what you decide to plant can also open up other benefits. If you plant fruits and vegetables then not only will you encourage yourself to eat healthier but also means you have less to buy at your next grocery visit! Making your shopping trip that much shorter decreases your risk of catching COVID-19. If you decide to grow flowers then that opens up other hobbies for you to try such as… flower pressing crafts, herbal recipes, photography or floral arrangments.

– Gardening can benefit your property and the environment in general as well! Planting trees and many other plants help improve outdoor air quality. Flowers can encourage helpful pollinators to pay your home a visit. Not only will it be fun to see them but also pollinators help keep the environment alive. Gardens have been known to help improve soil and water quality as well. Some plants can even deter pests such as mosquitoes and ticks! Imagen how much more you’ll enjoy your own property when you don’t have those bugs to worry about.

Best part? All these benefits don’t end when social-distancing does. So longs as you continue to care for it gardens can beneficial for a lifetime. Right now while you have the free time is the best time to get it started because getting it set up is the hard part. Be sure to get advice from your local gardening community if you’re completely new to the process. If you can’t handle all the really heavy work but would still like to garden then consider calling your local landscaping company. Landscapers are still open and working at this time because their work doesn’t break the social distancing protocol. Get ready to get your hands dirty (in a good way!) and reap the benefits of that garden you sowed! Stay safe and healthy out there!

Volunteers of the Clearwater Community Volunteers band together to create educational "how to" videos from home to help local nonprofits grow.

CLEARWATER, FL, UNITED STATES, April 2, 2020 / — Volunteers of the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center have resolved to help their community from home by creating informational Facebook videos to help local nonprofits or to share good news with their neighbors.

Upcoming videos include demonstrations on utilizing social media to increase a nonprofit’s reach into the community by Markets for Makers founder Natalie Nagengast, to growing organic vegetables with limited space using “tower gardening” with Master Gardener, Jai McFall.

“Our volunteers are looking for creative ways to help others.” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “Truly, we could not do what we do for our community without their support and determination to make a difference.”
