    An animated introduction to the EU's Marine Strategy Framework Directive and the Celtic Seas Partnership project. European marine policy is developing and changing rapidly. In the last 5 years there have been a number of new policies and changes to existing policies. Reading and understanding these policies can be time consuming and challenging. The language is often scientific and technical making it difficult for anyone outside of the policy environment to fully grasp. Through our website we aim to provide up-to-date and clear overviews of the key pieces of European marine policy.

      • The Lamu Archipelago | The Story of The Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (English Version)

        from Jahawi Bertolli / Added

        The Lamu Archipelago lies 2 degrees south of the Equator along Kenya’s coast. The archipelago is a chain of islands separated from the mainland by a narrow channel bordered with dense mangrove forest and protected from the Indian Ocean by coral reefs and large sand dunes. Lamu Island has been a port of call for travellers for centuries. The many historical sites are proof of the area’s long and rich history which, when combined with all the natural attraction of its tropical setting, culminated in Lamu being added as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2001. For the last 22 years the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust (LaMCoT) has been working in the Lamu Archipelago. What started as a turtle conservation project has successfully grown to now encompass a patrolled community marine conservancy amongst other projects. The core belief of LaMCoT is that it must be a community led organisation and therefore having the understanding and support from the local community is important to the continued success and future projects of the trust. This short documentary aims to showce the beauty of this unique archipelago and the great work the marine conservation trust has been doing, but also highlight what could be lost due to unchecked and unsustainable development and modernisation. Not only does this documentary cover what happens on land but it also dives underwater filming never before filmed reefs and marine ecosystems along with artisanal fishing practices. For more information on the Lamu Marine Conservation Trust please go to www.lamcot.org Dedicated to Lars Korschen

          • The Coral Triangle: Nature's Greatest Secret - A Movable Feast Vimeo

            Nature’s Greatest Secret – The Coral Triangle A true sense of adventure, the grandeur of blue-chip cinematography, and the expertise of some of the world’s leading chroniclers of the marine environment join forces in this three-part landmark documentary series. Located deep in the volcanic central Indo-Pacific Ocean, the Coral Triangle is a region of unrivalled richness, beauty, and biological importance. Transported back to the romantic age of sailing in a traditional Indonesian schooner equipped with the latest diving equipment and state-of-the-art camera technology, we travel to the hidden and forgotten worlds above and below the waves, and discover the greatest concentration of marine life found anywhere in the world. The exploration and management of the Coral Triangle may well hold the key to the survival of marine species from all over the world that depend on its existence. The Coral Triangle is the major junction of three great oceans; a veritable highway for great ocean travellers, such as the leatherback turtle, whale sharks, and blue whales. Through the tracking and study of migrating marine mammals by Dr Benjamin Kahn, we follow the movements of these great whales to understand what draws them to this region, and why it is a critical path in their journey. While Dr Mark Meekan tracks his whale sharks from Australiaʼs Ningaloo Reef to the heart of the Coral Triangle, in a quest to find their undiscovered breeding grounds. Episodes: 1. A Deep Secret 2. A Moveable Feast 3. Paradise Under Pressure Journey into the central Indo-Pacific, to the epicentre of the world's marine biodiversity as we reveal why the Coral Triangle holds a vital key to the future of the oceans and of human sustainability. In the tropical seas of Southeast Asia is a triangular shaped area of such rich and vibrant marine life that scientists have named it an epicentre of global marine biodiversity. Encompassing thousands of tropical islands fringed with abundant coral reefs and crossed by surging ocean currents, the Coral Triangle is the "Eden of the Oceans", the "Nursery of the Seas". 120 million people depend on the bounty of the Coral Triangle for their survival. The people of the region are as diverse in culture, religion and language as the fauna of the oceans they are so intimately connected to. Pressures such as abject poverty and rapid economic growth are putting a heavy burden on the Coral Triangle biome. This is a place where ancient beliefs and indigenous ways of life are being tested by depleting fish stocks, floating plastic debris and the unknown future of climate change. For Schools and Universities: Natures Greatest Secret: The Coral Triangle is an amazing resource for the cross curricula themes of Sustainability and Asia and Australia’s engagement with Asia. The films are appropriate for geography, social studies, environment and conservation studies, Earth and Biological Science, Asian Studies and Marine Studies. The study guide draws explicit links with The Australian Curriculum for Year 6 Science and Geography and Year 9 Science and Geography as these years have a particularly strong Asia focus. There are also activities for Senior Biology Unit 3, heredity and continuity of life.

                Set up in 1977, Sea Shepherd started out as small dedicated team lead by founder, Captain Paul Watson. Now in 2014 this small organisation has expanded world wide into a global movement, with a mission to protect the bio-diversity of our oceans, primarily with direct action. Sea Shepherds clients range from whales, right down to plankton, however our mission is of the outmost importance to all humanity, because if the Oceans Die, We Die. Check out this wonderful video which shows where Sea Shepherd stands today as a movement to save life on planet ocean, to save the earth.

                    I recently returned from a 1 month internship with GVI Seychelles conducting a Marine Conservation Expedition. I thought it would be interesting to put together a short film displaying my time spent there including all the adventures I had related to the conservation and community work. It's a fun tribute to GVI for their fantastic work carried out globally concerning conservation and community awareness. May the conservation within the Seychelles continue allowing the reef and marine biodiversity to thrive for future generations.
