The Bocas Research Station celebrated Earth Day by more than just putting cool ecological memes on Facebook: they celebrated with action! Beach clean-ups were organized on Carenero, Bluff and Las Cabañas, along with an Earth Day Parade featuring all of the schools on the island. Kudos to Marlon Smith, the Bocas Research Station, Smithsonian, Sea Turtle Conservancy, School for Field Studies, and all volunteers and school children involved. Way to show that you love Mother Earth by taking action!
Nicholas Corea is the owner and editor of the Bocas Breeze. He wasn't born in Bocas, but he got there as fast as he could. Just one of the many foreigners who became enamored with the enchantment of the islands, his mission is to share the majesty of Bocas del Toro with the world. Nicholas (aka Nick / Nico) has been known to love literature and live music concerts. Nothing makes him happier than when others are interested in this entertaining and informative community newspaper. Mr. Corea would like to send his gratitude to all who read and support the Bocas Breeze; for it takes a village to publish a community newspaper!
