1. Shell - We Are All Winners (except the Niger Delta)


    from Jantine Baasen / Added

    Shell - We Are All Winners (except the Niger Delta). The people singing are actual Shell employees at a corporate "moral boosting event" (somehow a recording ended up on the internet). The footage is from Shell operations in the Niger Delta. ~ ~ PLEASE SHARE THIS VIDEO ~ ~ This video uses footage from various sources.

However, it’s assumed Shell stands behind its own message and thus has no problems with the song being used to illustrate images of their work in the Niger Delta.

    • C3’s Conservation Ambassadors get down and dirty in the mangroves

      In October 2011, representatives from Yaro, Ligau and Daku villages on Kia Island were selected by Community Centred Conservation (C3) staff in consultation with village elders for training as Conservation Ambasssadors. Since then they have been involved in environmental education and conservation awareness raising for together with C3, a non government organization dedicated to helping communities look after their resources for the future. Unfortunately Fiji’s mangrove forests are being destroyed. Cut for firewood, used as waste dumping grounds, reclaimed for farming and other coastal developments such as infrastructure (i.e. ports) and tourism (i.e. Nadi bay). This includes the Northern Division and in the Labasa River, dredging is destroying large areas of mangrove forest. The meeting was concluded with a trip to Kia Island’s mangrove nursery in Yalava Bay, where field methods were practiced. After a few days to review what they had learnt, the team headed over to Korotubu village on the, to put their training into practice on a real mangrove monitoring field trip. Noa Sorowaqali the village Turaganikoro directed the enthusiastic group to the newly established mangrove reserve where transect lines and plots were laid out and team members started performing their various roles. Tasks included information recording, taking photos and GPS marks, identifying different types of mangroves, measuring tree size, counting seedlings and saplings, plotting the location of trees determining site characteristics and noting impacts. Everybody worked hard in the heat and mud of the dense forest to beat the incoming tide and complete the data collection before a well-deserved late lunch. The training was completed with the presentation of certificates to all involved in recognition of their successful efforts in learning about and monitoring mangrove forests. Thanks to the Conservation Leadership Programme (CLP) for their generous funding of this fantastic work!

                • Food-Risk Tradeoffs in Mangrove & Coral Reef Fishes


                  from R.J. Dunlap Marine Conservation / Added

                  For more information about this research or the RJD Program, please visit: www.rjd.miami.edu While foraging, most animals are susceptible to predation because behaviors that enhance foraging opportunities typically also increase predation risk (e.g. increased activity levels). Moreover, habitats that contain the greatest food resources are often the most dangerous. Thus, a tradeoff often exists between foraging opportunities and the risk of predation. By sacrificing feeding rate for safety (e.g. shifting to safer but less profitable feeding patches) in response to risk, consumers can impact the behaviors and abundance of other organisms, which can initiate trophic cascades. Behavioral optimization theory and associated models provide a theoretical framework, which is applicable across taxa and systems, for studying the influence of food availability and predation risk on forager habitat use. In this project will examine food-risk tradeoffs in mangrove and coral reef fishes by conducting an integrated set of quantitative field studies. We are particularly interested in evaluating how fish anti-predator behaviors such as vigilance and predator avoidance change along mangroves-seagrass and coral reefs-seagrass gradients. 1. Does the diet and feeding intensity of mangrove and reef fishes differ seasonally? 2. How are fish diets and foraging behavior influenced by food availability? 3. Do mangrove fishes exhibit individual specialization in diet? 4. How does predation risk on fishes differ spatially with proximity to mangroves and reefs? 5. Does predation pressure on fishes differ between night and day in mangroves and reefs? 6. Do mangrove and reef fishes exhibit food risk tradeoffs? If so, what behaviors do they use to avoid being attacked by predators?
