Biodiversity Conservation in Carriacou through Nesting Sea Turtles and Wetland Bird Monitoring - CLME+ HUB

    Biodiversity Conservation in Carriacou through Nesting Sea Turtles and Wetland Bird Monitoring

Brief Description:
The project goal is to conserve Carriacou鈥檚 nesting sea turtle population and migratory, resident, endemic wetland birds and their habitat in the Petit Carenage nature hot spot, by consistent monitoring, conservation strategies and developing the capacity of community groups in related conservation and income generating eco-tourism sustainable activities (e.g.: bird watching, grocery bags production with recycled waste, etc.). Without these activities the Carriacou nesting sea turtle population, the island鈥檚 biodiversity and endangered and rare bird species will suffer critical losses. The project will develop a database and yearly report on biodiversity, including nesting turtles, birds and other wildlife species recorded in their habitats in Carriacou. Professional quality photos-video of nesting turtles and birds taken by a professional photographer will be included in the project website/blog.

El objetivo del proyecto es conservar la poblaci贸n de tortugas marinas que anidan en Carriacou y las aves migratorias, residentes y end茅micas de los humedales y su h谩bitat en el punto caliente de la naturaleza de Petit Carenage, mediante un monitoreo constante, estrategias de conservaci贸n y el desarrollo de la capacidad de los grupos comunitarios en la conservaci贸n relacionada y la generaci贸n de ingresos ecol贸gicos. -actividades tur铆sticas sostenibles (ej .: observaci贸n de aves, producci贸n de bolsas de la compra con residuos reciclados, etc.). Sin estas actividades, la poblaci贸n de tortugas marinas que anidan en Carriacou, la biodiversidad de la isla y las especies de aves raras y en peligro de extinci贸n sufrir谩n p茅rdidas cr铆ticas. El proyecto desarrollar谩 una base de datos y un informe anual sobre la biodiversidad, incluidas las tortugas anidantes, las aves y otras especies de vida silvestre registradas en sus h谩bitats en Carriacou. En el sitio web / blog del proyecto se incluir谩n fotograf铆as y videos de calidad profesional de las tortugas y aves que anidan, tomados por un fot贸grafo profesional.
