A cup of cocoa to save our Mother Earth Here's a good start-of-the-week comeback on the post weekend question, "What did you do this weekend?" "Oh, I participated in a sacred Mayan cocoa ceremony to restore balance in our Mother Earth."  A few months back I was drawn to a handsome, long-haired young man who stood out in a crowd of guides and outfitters at a gathering of adventure travel professionals. Aaron El Leon and his partner Milena Worsham operate Running Buffalo Journeys from their home base in Atitlan, Guatemala. We hit it off as new life-long friends and they offered to hold a sacred cacao ceremony for a small group. Just by virtue of the spiritual nature of Aaron and Milena, which is what drew me to them in the first place, I knew the ceremony was more than a get together to have a cup of warm cocoa.  Indeed, we are not talking about processed cocoa or even...

Why do Macaws Eat Clay? Viewing a raucous and colorful macaw clay lick in the early morning hours is one of the highlights of a trip to Peru's Amazon. It is a spectacle prized by wildlife enthusiasts and photographers alike and one that is unique to Peru's Tambopata and Manu regions. Though Macaws range from Mexico to northern Argentina, only in Peru do they congregate in large numbers at colpas (Quechua for "salty earth") to eat clay. These are typically red earth cliffs eroded by rivers where the birds squawk, play and ingest the mineral rich clay alongside a variety of parrot and parakeet species. So why is this behavior only observed among Peru's macaws? Scientists at the Tambopata Research Center have been studying macaws since the late 1980s and have developed a theory that connects diet to reproduction and chick health. Macaw food sources in the Peruvian Amazon are naturally low in sodium compared...
