The Way it Should Be

  Our world is evolving at such a rapid rate, but there is hope yet for the resurrection of corporate morals and care. Dave Rastovich is one of the surf industries most passionate visionaries for this move, he explains the satisfaction of living and seeing the attitude shift to a life that is more gentle and trodden more lightly.

Dolphins on the Great Barrier Reef | Wildlife Conservation Co.

We love this amazing photo of dolphins on the Great Barrier Reef.  It was taken last week from a helicopter doing surveys in the marine park over Tijou Reef, north of Lockhart River.
