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


Brief Description:
The project goal is to conserve Carriacou’s 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’s 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 población de tortugas marinas que anidan en Carriacou y las aves migratorias, residentes y endémicas de los humedales y su hábitat en el punto caliente de la naturaleza de Petit Carenage, mediante un monitoreo constante, estrategias de conservación y el desarrollo de la capacidad de los grupos comunitarios en la conservación relacionada y la generación de ingresos ecológicos. -actividades turísticas sostenibles (ej .: observación de aves, producción de bolsas de la compra con residuos reciclados, etc.). Sin estas actividades, la población de tortugas marinas que anidan en Carriacou, la biodiversidad de la isla y las especies de aves raras y en peligro de extinción sufrirán pérdidas críticas. El proyecto desarrollará 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 hábitats en Carriacou. En el sitio web / blog del proyecto se incluirán fotografías y videos de calidad profesional de las tortugas y aves que anidan, tomados por un fotógrafo profesional.
