Campbell cleans up

Eco News
 
divers are prepared to spend time and money on holiday to clean up the reefs

“divers are prepared to spend time
and money on holiday to clean up
the reefs”

British champion freediver Sara Campbell joined a team of 22 scuba divers on a Red Sea liveaboard to help clean up Egypt's reefs. The week was part of a month of subsidised clean-up safaris that tour operator blue o two has been running throughout 2009 to support the HEPCA's (Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association) Hayah campaign.

Hayah (meaning life in Arabic) is a broad initiative aimed at educating the tourists and people working within the diving industry to protect the marine environment while supporting sustainable income for the local communities.

'I've always had a close connection with the environment, and am delighted that I can use my diving to reach a wider audience to help protect not only the Red Sea, but all water environments,' said Campbell. 'I was on the fourth Hayah/blue o two clean-up week and we brought up around 30kg of rubbish, mainly glass, cans, plastic wrapper and fishing lines. The amount of waste that ends up in the sea is shocking - it not only looks horrible, but it destroys the reefs and particularly in the case of fishing lines and nets, can create the most awful devastation to the wildlife.'

Guests on board the liveaboard the following week, picked up more than 100kg of rubbish including used oil and diesel filters, according to blue o two.

HEPCA project manager Natalie Tyler said: 'Simply by seeing that divers are prepared to spend time and money on holiday to clean up the reefs makes a big impact on the boat crew and encourages them to adopt more environmentally friendly ways of living at sea, from waste disposal to cleaning materials they use. We can't pinpoint the waste problem at one group - everyone is responsible for looking after the future of the sea.'

For more information about the Hayah project see www.hepca.com or for details about the subsidised clean up trips see www.blueotwo.com.

Earth Hour @ Bordiehn’s

Dear guests of Bordiehn’s Restaurants, friends and business partners:

From melting glaciers to increasingly intense weather patterns, we know that climate change is already impacting life on our planet. On Saturday, March 28, 2009, at 8:30 pm, Bordiehn’s Restaurants and our employees will take part in Earth Hour—the world’s largest global climate change event.

By simply turning out all non-essential lighting for one hour at our company buildings and in our own homes, we will join tens of millions of concerned citizens throughout the world in calling for action to save our planet for future generations. We’d like to invite you, our valued business partners, to join us in the important effort.

Earth Hour is an event led by the World Wildlife Fund. In 2008, more than 50 million people in 370 cities around the world took part, as the lights dimmed at Sydney’s Opera House, Rome’s Coliseum, the Empire State Building and the Golden Gate Bridge. Even the Google homepage went dark for the day….

Spotlight on…. Red Sea Diving

Dive focus
Pufferfish, eagle rays, groupers and napoleonfish dot the reef

Pufferfish, eagle rays, groupers
and napoleonfish dot the reef

Ras Ghazlani - Ras Mohammed National Park

With no mooring and a generally strong current, Ras Ghazlani is done as a drift dive, which is the perfect way to appreciate the tranquillity of this dive site.

The preservation of its delicate beauty is thanks to site having been closed off to divers for many years.

One of the treasures of Sharm El Sheikh, it is by far one of the healthiest and most diverse coral sites in the Sinai region.

Located at the mouth of Marsa Bareika, this site consists of a steep slope covered by coral heads. Dropping down to 15 metres, the reef wall descends gradually as you go deeper with abundant fish life all across the reef. Pufferfish, eagle rays, groupers and napoleonfish dot the reef, and keep your eyes on the blue for some pelagic action.

Whatever marine life exists in the Red Sea, you can be sure to find it scuba diving here in the Sinai Peninsula.

Ras Ghazlani Reef Basics: Drift diving
Depth: 16 - >40m
Visibility: 10 - >40m
Currents: Strong
Surface Conditions: Generally calm
Water Temperature: 22 - 28°C
Experience Level: Intermediate - advanced
Number of Dive Sites: 1
Diving Season: All year round
Distance: 8 km north of Sharm El Sheikh, 500m offshore
Access: Daytrips and liveaboards

Ten Tips to Get on the Yoga Mat

Lifestyle
Practice of Yoga poses increases flexibility, helps fitness, and promotes a healthy and natural lifestyle

Practice of Yoga poses increases
flexibility, helps fitness, and
promotes a healthy and natural
lifestyle

Yoga is a great way to relax your body and mind. It provides many benefits and is a cost-effective exercise that can be practiced anywhere. Through different stretches and Yoga poses you can find greater control over your spirit, body, and mind. Yoga is quite effective in relieving stress and with proper breathing is a great way to relax and release tension. Continued practice of Yoga poses increases flexibility, helps fitness, and promotes a healthy and natural lifestyle. There are many different variations including Bikram Yoga, Yoga Pilates, Hot Yoga, Ashtanga Yoga, Hatha Yoga, and more. Below you can find tips for starting or enhancing your Yoga experience.

1- Free Yoga Instructional Videos - Buying a ton of Yoga DVDs is not necessary. A simple search on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/results?sear...) and other similar video web sites returns thousands of free instructional Yoga videos. Many of them are entire Yoga workout sessions. Select entire play lists and those videos with the highest ratings and most views. You can also check with your library for Yoga instructional videos. Remember to listen to your own body first over the advice of any instructor or video.

2- Pick a Good Yoga Mat - Make sure your Yoga mat isn't slippery. It should be comfortable and maintain a good temperature. It should also be flexible enough to work for both sitting and Yoga poses where you will be lying down. Use anti-slip inserts or an anti-slip material for your Yoga mat. Experiment with different combinations and get recommendations from your friends and Yoga instructors.

3- Pick the Right Yoga Poses - Beginners should start with more basic Yoga poses. Even those experienced in Yoga should first warm up with simple Yoga poses and slowly move to more advanced ones during the course of the workout. Become comfortable and confident with those Yoga poses. As the flexibility of your body increases you can then advance. Then learn specific poses that fit with your body or strengthen desired areas. Some of the more basic Yoga poses include:

-Mountain Pose
-Downward Facing Dog Pose
-Tree Pose
-Fish Pose
-Warrior Pose
-Cobra Pose
-Triangle Pose
