    GOLDEN MIC winner: Visiting Palm Island and the Tobago Cays

    in Travel

    WINNER of the GOLDEN MIC from the Caribbean Tourism Organization.   On today’s World Footprints we’re traveling through the southern Grenadines and will share the beauty and magic of this special part of the world. Our show originates from the beautiful Palm Island at the Palm Island Resort.  Palm Island is a private tropical paradise comprising only 135 acres in size.  You’ll meet Chris Ghita, a transplant from Grenada, who has found his place as General Manager of this remarkable resort.  He’ll entice you to escape the hassles of the world with a visit to this tiny paradise. Then, we’ll introduce you to Palm Island’s most colorful character and resident artist and doctor, Patrick Chavellier.  This wonderful man and his extraordinary studio is worth the visit alone.  Patrick is one of the world’s finest undersea artists and we’ll learn about his art and his life in paradise. Finally, we’ll travel by powerboat to the Tobago Cays Marine Park—a protected wildlife preserve of five isles bordered by a giant horseshoe reef.  This aquamarine blue and green waterscape serves as home to wild sea turtles and is a underwater haven for scuba divers and snorklers alike.  Here’s we’ll talk to Park Ranger Lesroy Noel who will describe the natural beauty surrounding us.

    Discus Euphoria: Pre Requisites To Having Discus In Your Aquarium

    in Pets

    Discus is arguably one of the most famous and well-liked freshwater tropical fish highly sought after by all hobbyists. At of point, not long after their initial introduction sometime around the late 80’s when the first wild caught discus were introduced to the fish keeping community and made their way to the home aquarium tank, the whole thing actually generated a lot of buzz until people do not have doubt about paying few thousand dollars just to acquire a fine specimen. In fact until today, they were considered to be the type of fish that belongs to the elite and exotic group and maintains this status as more and more colorful variants were introduced. They are appreciated not only because of their nice well-defined shades and unique patterns but also due their graceful movements that swim slowly in the tank and all these will never fail to catch the attention of aquarist. Most noticeable appearance which makes them so easy to identify compared to the other fish is their shape whereby there is no other fish species in the world that shares the same feature and characteristics.
