The Pacific

Biodiversity and the Protection of Coral Reefs

Streaming Video - 2010
Rate this:
Virtually every reef system in the world is endangered, and the island nations of the South Pacific provide some of the most troubling examples. This program examines the uncertain future of tropical offshore ecosystems using the French collectivity of New Caledonia as a case study. Viewers accompany lagoon protection crew members as they patrol fragile marine reserves by boat; an itinerant researcher who describes frequent legal conflicts between tribal interests and environmental regulations; and outreach personnel working with Kanak and Melanesian leaders to reduce traditional hillside burns, which lead to high sediment levels in lagoons.
