    Manta Ray Bay is hosting a unique citizen science symposium in special cooperation with Manta Trust. Guests will participate hands-on during field research with leading manta ray and shark scientists on an upgraded dive package including workshops, activities and evening entertainment.

    The week-long symposium will be lead by Manta Trust researchers where guests will learn about Micronesian manta ray behavior, animal identification as well as conservation data. This best of Yap dive package will include a shark feed, mating mandarin fish and outer reef night dive with educational and party components.

    Research dive plans will include extended dives at the manta sites while participating in animal ID photography and measurements, side-by-side with scientists. Afternoon workshops will be held as well as nightly media presentations at the Crow's Nest open air bar by Manta Trust members.

    The week's itinerary is complete with a private beach BBQ as well as a cultural tour in Kaday Village. There's nothing missing from this event, there's everything Yap and all things Manta.

    How To Stop Church Gossip

    Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church's morals, kept sticking her nose into other people's business.

    Several members did not approve of her extra- curricular activities, but feared her enough to maintain their silence.

    She made a mistake, however, when she accused Frank, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town's only bar one afternoon.

    She emphatically told Frank (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing!

    Frank, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing..

    Later that evening, Frank quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house .. walked home .... .and left it there all night.

    (You gotta love Frank!)

    All that's missing is you...

    This is the time of year that we wind up the summer events, prepare for the fall season and holidays, which are typically busy for us.

    Coming up in this season is the start of manta ray mating then ringing in a new year.

    Big animal diving, exotic culture and interesting lifestyles are what you'll find.
