Think seals are cute? How about swordfish? Think they’re awesome? Well Chile is taking an aggressive step to protect these and all ocean life in the largest marine reserve to date, Nazca-Desventuradas Marine Park.  The area, almost as big as Italy, is home to species seen nowhere else in the world.

This new reserve triples the amount of protected waters in Chile as it gives scientists the opportunity to study and learn how the ecosystem is supposed to function naturally. “With the creation of this marine park around Desaventuradas, we’re also becoming a leader in marine conservation,” said Alex Muñoz, vice president of Oceana in Chile.

It’s a step in the right direction as the world try’s to meet the United Nations’ target to protect 10 percent of the Earth’s oceans by 2020.  Way to lead the charge Chile!

Donald Trump Kissed a Latina During an Event and then Things Got Creepy

So, a weird thing happened during a Donald Trump rally in Las Vegas.

Trump was speaking when he pointed at someone in the audience…

It appears Trump was looking for someone carrying an issue of People magazine with his family on the cover.

The he walked over and plucked a woman from the crowd…

When they arrived to the podium, Trump asked her: “Where are you from?”

She replied: “I am from Colombia!”

Then Trump, trying to prove it wasn’t a set-up, asked, “Is this a set-up? Have I ever met you before?” The woman replied:

And technically, she didn’t answer his question.

Trump, apparently satisfied with her answer, kissed the woman.

Then he started grabbing the woman’s waist with a creepy smile on his face. WTF?! What is he doing?

Then he lifted her arms in celebration like she was a newborn.
