Saving Indonesia's Most Bio-diverse Ecosystems by Andrew Miner

The Last Resort: The fight to preserve Indonesia's most important tropical paradise

When Andrew Miners first arrived in the Indonesian island village Babitim he was struck by two things: the tropical paradise surrounding him, and the corpses of the mutilated sharks strewn around the beach.

Now Andrew's efforts have been fulfilled as "the worlds most bio-diverse marine habitat" is officially protected by a 425 sq/km "no-take zone", barring anybody but locals to fish inside the perimeter. Featuring astounding underwater footage of marine wildlife set against the brutal realities on board the shark-trawlers, conservationists and natives cooperate to create a model for ocean preservation that "could inform the way we manage oceans around the rest of the world." See Misool Eco Resort.

Dead Zones by Oceanographer Jack Barth of Oregon State Univ.
Static Preview

Ocean "dead zones" along the Washington and Oregon coasts are threatening critical U.S. fishing areas. These oxygen-depleted regions, that loose virtually all of their marine life in the summer, are expanding, and new ones are appearing in the Pacific Ocean. Oceanographer Jack Barth of Oregon State University says these new ocean dead zones are different from most of the 400+ others known around the world. While the majority of those are caused by excess nutrients in river runoffs, his research is the first to tie these new dead zones to climate change. With support from the National Science Foundation, Barth is also using an impressive new tool, an unmanned underwater glider that provides round the clock monitoring of these zones.

What's a Marine Reserve? by GreenPeace
Static PreviewFor too long, marine life has been largely open for the taking by anyone possessing the means to exploit it. Rapid advances in technology have meant that the unsustainable ability, reach and power of vessels and equipment used to exploit marine life now far outweigh nature's ability to maintain it. If left unchecked, this will have far reaching consequences for the marine environment and for people who depend on it. More information.

End of the Line - Movie Trailer
Static Preview

The End of the Line is a powerful film about one of the world's most disturbing problems - over-fishing. Advances in fishing technology mean whole species of wild fish are under threat and the most important stocks we eat are predicted to be in a state of collapse by 2050. The film points the finger at those most to blame, including celebrity chefs, and shows what we can do about it. This is not just a film, it is also a campaign - for sustainable consumption of fish, for marine protected areas to allow the sea to recover, and for a new ethic of responsible fishing.
