Plastic Pollution a threat to Ocean Giants
Scientists say there needs to be more research into the impact of plastic pollution on sharks, whales and rays. A study, in the journal Trends in Ecology and Evolution, says the creatures may be swallowing hundreds of tiny bits of plastic a day. Microplastic pollution has the potential to further reduce the population sizes of the large filter feeders, they say as these large filter feeders swallow hundreds of cubic feet of water each day, straining the water for plankton which is approximately the same size as much of the microplastic pollution found in our oceans today.
Evidence of Rohingya mass graves uncovered in Myanmar

People and Animals
Noel the Bobcat
Noel bobcat, hit by a car at Christmas and salvaged by intense surgery for broken bones by Big Cat Rescue in Tampa) is recovering nicely/hair growing back over surgical sites. She gets up and down without difficulty.
She’s still confined to hospital recovery cages until her bones heal and are strong enough to withstand more space. Then she will be moved to the bobcat rehab enclosures (outside) to strengthen her muscles until she can hunt. There is not yet a date for that move, but so far so good! You can see how she is doing for yourselves, and track her amazing recovery process (thank you Reiki list!) – this link is the live nest cam that shows her activity in real time.
The Good Guys
Yes, there are crises everywhere we look such that it is easy to feel overwhelmed by the suffering. But at the same time there are many, many people and organizations stepping up to provide help in specific crisis situations as well as to the ecological crises across the planet. You won’t hear much about these Good Guys on the news, but they also need our energetic support since they are working in the name of all of us who hold Compassion. When we offer Reiki and Johrei to the Good Guys we leverage our abilities and we help move the planet closer to a point of positive critical mass.
We will regularly highlight some of the Good Guys here so we can quickly and easily offer them energetic backup.

Tea Farmer in India leads the charge for organics
In the biggest tea-growing region in India, the hazards alone range from red spider mites to herds of wild elephants. Grower Tenzing Bodosa, a native of Assam, fights the former and unusually invites the latter. Tenzing’s small 13-hectare (about 32 acres) tea estate sits in the folds of the Himalayas, and borders the mountain kingdom of Bhutan to the north. Tenzing transitioned to organic farming after an incident with pesticides on his own farm convinced him he needed to change. In addition to the transition to all organic farming, Tenzing dedicated 74 acres of his estate as a wildlife preserve and spends much of his time teaching and encouraging other tea farmers how to switch to organic farming.
