We had a great year - Photo from Bikini Island Club, Merizo
really many asian here like korean, japans, chineses as well but also westerners are here too and all the staff are kind, kindly i did navy pack 1 programme it was great! I' ve made sunbathing, snorkelling, dolphin cruz and jetski! Did you go to the Bikini Island Club?

GUAM, our house is not only a unique place for natives and those who were borne and grew up on the island. In the last 6 EIF Season we have been bringing more than 60 DJ' from all over the globe and Asia to convey the Hafa Adai adventure in the island's secret jewel GUAM.
EIF 2018 DJ from Tokyo, DJ TORA, recorded his journey to the island that has conquered his hearts and which he wants to pass on to our supporters and the area. Watch DJ Tora's EIF........ p.s. OUR 2018 after movie will start soon. Stick to Choon and keep your feet wet for now, Guam!

When the world's avian population declines, will the Earth become the planet of spiders? Scientists on Guam, a 30 mile long US island about 3,800 nautical mile to the western side of Hawaii, found that the arachnids' population had grown 40-fold as a result of whole kinds of insectivorous flocks of insectivorous trees that had fallen into obscurity from invading bay tree snakes.
Biologists suspect that the spider is also reproducing in other areas where migratory animals are declining. The Guam book is a book about what can occur to avian life when an eco-system is destroyed by invading fishes. It took less than half a centurys after the introduction of tree snakes in the 1940' s before they all but two of the island's dozens of indigenous wildlife were exterminated.
However, as the ravines of the voracious nightly carnivores were descended by the raptors, the population of the raptors grew. And has the case of the bird led to the ascent of the arachnids? According to research conducted by Rice University, the University of Washington and the University of Guam, the jungle of Guam has up to 40 fold more cobwebs than in neighbouring isles such as Saipan, according to the Open Accession magazine plus one (PLOS ONE).
"It is impossible to run through the jungle in Guam without a cane in your hands to defeat the cobwebs," says Haldre Rogers, Huxley Fellow in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at Rice and principal investigator of the recent survey. "These results are some of the first to investigate the effects of the tree snake on the Guam ecosystem," Rice University said in a press release on research.
Researchers cross-referenced the densities of the cobwebs in Guam with those in the Mariana Mountains near by. Roger said that the discrepancy between the number of cobwebs she and her fellow workers on Guam and three neighboring islets that still have bird life was "much more tragic than what any small experiment had found before.
"As I was out there looking for serpents, I was spending a great deal of my life reflecting on the distinctions between the woods I walked through and the woods in Guam," Rogers said. "Cobwebs were just a different story. When Rogers registered at the University of Washington in 2005, she had a series of environmental study proposals to measure and explain the disparities she had seen, Rice said.
"We were the first to see the unbelievable number of cobwebs in the Guam jungle, but we were the first to measure the differences between Guam and the neighbouring islands," Rogers said. They and trial co-authors Janneke Hille Ris Lambers and Josh Tewksbury of the University of Washington and Ross Miller of the University of Guam found that the number of moths were between two and 40 time more abundant on Guam than on neighbouring isles, Rice said.
"It was a surprising result because the results were many more than expected from a simple figure from small exclusion studies," said Rice. Roger is planning to carry out exclusion trials on neighbouring islets that still have woodland species and comparing these results with those observed in Guam to identify the precise correlation between the loss of woodland species and the increase in the spiders populations.
Bird pollinators are pollinating our harvests, controlling parasites and, it seems, preventing the explosion of spiders population, Fenwick wrote in a press release.
