Three Abaco Parks Proposals

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Did some video this week with Loggerhead Productions generating more
information on the three new proposed Abaco conservation areas: South
Abaco Blue Holes Conservation AreaEast Abaco Creeks National Park Proposal,
and Cross Harbour Conservation Area (a summary of all three here).  All three
are examples of “bottom up” conservation planning, with local NGOs, fisherpeople,
and community members from various walks of life coming together to identify
and plan for protected area development.  A lot more coming this week on
research in the Cross Harbour area on bonefish.

Craig Layman
My lab’s interdisciplinary pursuits provide for a multi-faceted understanding of environmental change in the coastal realm. We are ecologists, asking questions that span population, community, ecosystem and evolutionary sub-disciplines. We often use a food web based perspective, exploring top-down (e.g., predation) and bottom-up (e.g., nutrient excretion) mechanisms by which animals affect ecosystem processes. All of our efforts are framed within a broader outreach framework, directly integrating science and education, using approaches such as this website.
