How do you track shark populations without getting TOO close? Try Baited Remote Underwater Video or "BRUV". Monitoring sharks across a variety of habitats in Raja Ampat is very important to develop baseline data on shark populations and assess the impact of conservation efforts - such marine protected area management efforts and its recent declaration as a shark sanctuary. | Baited cameras are very effective at attracting scavengers - and the sharks that prey on them. It is a non-invasive way to get data about a number of marine species in an area. And since it doesn't take any fish or other creatures out of their habitat, it offers a low-impact way of understanding changes in fish numbers and diversity over time. Footage shot in February 2014 in Raja Ampat, West Papua by a team of CI staff using the GoPro Hero 3. Bahasa: Video ini dibuat pada bulan Febuari 2014 di Raja Ampat, Papua Barat oleh tim staf CI yang menggunakan GoPro Hero 3. Tujuan dari Baited-Remote-Underwater-Video (BRUV) adalah untuk memantau hiu di Raja Ampat di berbagai habitat untuk mengembangkan data dasar tentang populasi hiu dan menilai dampak upaya pengelolaan MPA dan deklarasi yang baru sebagai tempat perlindungan ikan hiu. Kamera yang telah dipasangi umpan sangat efektif dalam menarik pemakan bangkai dan predator, dan merupakan metode non-invasif yang menghasilkan kelimpahan indeks relatif untuk sejumlah spesies laut. Sebagai teknik non-ekstraktif, ia membawa dampak yang rendah untuk lingkungannya dalam memahami perubahan jumlah dan keragaman ikan dari waktu ke waktu.

Dulce — A Short Documentary

In the coastal village of La Ensenada, Colombia, where digging for shellfish is a way of life, everyone must learn to swim eventually — even little Dulce. But as the effects of climate change begin to threaten the village's livelihood, the carefree swimming lessons led by Dulce's mother take on a sense of urgency.
