Dolphins Dancing For Laura Chinchilla Again!

Dolphins Dancing For Laura Chinchilla Again!

Costa Rica To Conserve Ten Percent of Oceans.

Latin America's greatest ocean hero, Laura Chinchilla, granted future Costa Ricans a much better chance of sustainably utilizing our Oceans into the future.  The sad free for all of too powerful special interests will now be controlled with vision directed to the people and the future by a new Vice Minister of Aguas and Mares.  Wow!  No thats how you do it!  Seems now the voices of all groups of ocean users, not just the most connected screaming special interests, will have a say.  Now is time for Costa Ricans to speak up about what they know about our oceans, and help conserve it.  Have you heard about the largest dolphin pod in the world, the spinner dolphins of the Osa peninsula and Cano Island?  Aaaa, happens to be they need a park!  They live near to famous protected areas Corcovado National Park and Cano Island Biological Reserve, BUT, they live in waters attacked by nets and lines.  This Park or protected area, needs to be south and west of Cano Island to at least a distance of 30 nautical miles to help these spinners.  NOT just 8 miles from the island as some are saying!  8 miles is not enough to protect the biggest dolphin pod in the world and Golfito and Puerto Jimenez need to make a lot money in the long run from conserving these dolphins, not killing them for short term collapsing profits. 

Three blue cheers for the awesome president of Costa Rica.

Japan Tsunami Causes Damage in Drake Bay, Costa Rica

clock March 13, 2011 02:31 by author BlueEcoBlog

 The Great Tsunami Waves Produces Powerful And Unpredictable Surges On The Osa Peninsula.

The lagoon of the Agujitas River on the west side of Bahia Drake on Costa Rica's Pacific coast received various strong surges starting around 5pm on the 11th March. Arriving at intervals of of around every 45 min the surge was only noticeable in the tidal bore area of the Agujas River. Later in the night around 11PM , Bradd Johnson of Aguila de Osa Lodge saw a much larger surge wave enter the river mouth very quickly. Within seconds two boats belonging to Marleny Jimenez's Drake Bay Resort upended and filled with water. Boats belonging to La Paloma Lodge broke free of their lines, probably why they did not sink, and banged against the rocks of the lagoon bank.

Broken motors and boats is getting off very lucky compared to the poor, poor people of Japan, but it shows the great reach of the massive tsunami of the Japan quake.

Seems that enclosed harbor like areas like Crescent City and Santa Cruz marina California, and the Rio Agujas of Drake Bay Costa Rica focused the massive surges from the tsunami, whereas in many places along the Americas coast it seems to have gone unnoticed.

Even today, erratic and strangely timed, small but unusually powerful surges are arriving into the Rio Agujas tidal bore, apparently as the Japan quake tsunami continues to reverberate and bounce around the world.
