Tags: Bird's Head Seascape, conservation, Biodiversity, diving, tourism
Description: There is no equal to the Bird’s Head Seascape in numbers of fish and coral species, habitat diversity and overall marine biodiversity. The Seascape shelters fringing reefs, lagoons, bays, mangroves, deep drop-offs, sea-grass beds and black sand critter sites. So far scientists have documented 1,629 fish species, 569 coral species (10 times more than the entire Caribbean), the Pacific Ocean’s most-utilised leatherback turtle nesting beach, dependable manta ray and whale shark aggregations, World War II wrecks and a whopping 57 species of mantis shrimp.

Conservation In Raja Ampat And The Greater Birds Head Seascape 1395250992
Author(s): Mark V. Erdmann and Maurine Shimlock
Tags: conservation, diving, MPA, underwater photography
Description: Since 2004 Raja Ampat and the surrounding areas of the wider Birds Head Seascape (BHS) have been the focus of comprehensive, long-term conservation initiatives. The area’s
priority in the world of marine conservation is justified, considering that the Birds Head is home to more marine species than any other area its size on the planet. For example, more than 70% of the world’s hard corals are represented, as are more than 1700 species of fish. Regional dive operators agree that their guests see more fish surrounding healthier reefs than they did a decade ago.

Description: Burt and I first heard about Triton Bay from Dr. Gerald Allen, an old friend and one of the world’s leading ichthyologists. In May 2006, Gerry, along with Dr. Mark Erdmann, senior advisor to Conservation International’s Indonesian Marine Program, and several other scientists also working for CI, traveled beyond the southern limits of Raja Ampat into the unknown waters of the Fak Fak Regency. The Conservation International team concentrated on Triton and Etna Bays where they hoped to discover a “hot spot,” an area of maximum species diversity and endemism similar to what they had found in Raja Ampat five years earlier.

Raja Ampat: Bigger Fish Now Thriving 1395251467
Author(s): Maurine Shimlock and Burt Jones
Tags: Raja Ampat, conservation, diving
Description: The most amazing thing about these new sites was the fish. It’s hard to imagine what Raja’s reef were like about 10 years ago when the first tourist divers saw them, but believe it or not, there’s a lot of evidence that fish counts have risen steadily during this time... Why Raja Ampat? Why have conservation efforts been successful
here? In our opinion, one major factor has been the NGO’s attempts to involve local people in their programs.

abundance and diversity, sheer drop-dead, scenic beauty and the variety of diving conditions and topography. But the question remains: Can Raja Ampat be protected?

Sasi and Marine Conservation in Raja Ampat, Indonesia 1606171034
Author(s): Elizabeth Mcleod, Rodney Salm, Brian W. Szuster
Tags: Raja Ampat, marine conservation, Sasi, customary marine tenure
Description: Raja Ampat, Indonesia, possesses the greatest diversity of corals and reef fishes on the
planet. The area is a priority for marine conservation for the provincial government,
local communities, and major international nongovernmental organizations such as
The Nature Conservancy and Conservation International. Traditional marine resource
management practices in the region, referred to as sasi, have the potential to support
conservation objectives. This article contends that while traditional marine resource
management systems may support conservation, they must be reinforced by a supportive
social structure and governance system to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world.
Two villages in Raja Ampat were studied to gain a better understanding of sasi and
how this practice has been affected by cultural, political, and economic change. These
villages illustrate how the role of religious authorities, access to alternative livelihoods,
proximity to urban centers, and capacity for monitoring and enforcement may influence
the effectiveness of marine resource management systems. Our research suggests that
the continued relevance of sasi in marine resource management relies on the support
of influential local leaders and businesses and government regulations that reinforce
traditional resource use practices.

Elysium Heart Of The Coral Triangle Expedition Report V Final 1615921300
Author(s): Michael Aw - Project Director
Tags:
Description: The Elysium Heart of the Coral Triangle expedition stems from its explorers’ shared understanding that climate change is intimately related to ocean change. The oceans play an essential role in regulating global climate and regional temperature, and are crucial for controlling the carbon, oxygen, and water cycles of theplanet. The oceans are a vital part of the complex geophysical and biochemical systems that support life on Earth.
The exchanges of cold and warm water that take place in the Antarctic’s Southern Ocean and the seas of the Arctic are key drivers of thermohaline circulation throughout all the oceans across the globe, and thermohaline circulation in turn plays a fundamental role in controlling the world’s climate. There is strong evidence that, due to impacts on our atmosphere stemming from the emission of greenhouse gases, significant changes are taking place in the chemical composition of the oceans. Those changes are affecting the oceans’ pH levels and productivity, and are impairing the ability of ocean life to survive and thrive. Impacts on the well-being of ocean life are beginning to affect other forms of life as well. These issues arevital signs, telling us that our planet is in distress.
Human impact on the ocean is increasing every year with global climate change and acidification reducing ocean productivity, overdevelopment and pollution contaminating the sea, and an increasing demand for food causing over-harvesting of the world's fisheries. Addressing these issues requires a combination of exploration and quantitative analysis to understand the underlying processes controlling diversity and productivity of marine life.

Residency and Use of an Important Nursery Habitat, Raja Ampat's Wayag Lagoon, by Juvenile Reef Manta Rays (Mobula Alfredi) 1655231134
Author(s): Edy Setyawan with Mark Erdmann, Ronald Mambrasar, Abdi Hasan, Abraham Sianipar, Rochelle Constantine, Ben Stevenson, And Fabrice Jane
Tags: coral reefs, movements, home range, satellite telemetry, passive acoustic telemetry, photo-identification, spatial ecology, Marine megafauna
Description: The behaviour and spatial use patterns of juvenile manta rays within their critical nursery
habitats remain largely undocumented. Here, we report on the horizontal movements and
residency of juvenile reef manta rays (Mobula alfredi) at a recently discovered nursery site in
the Wayag lagoon, Raja Ampat, Indonesia. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, we provide
further corroborative evidence that the lagoon serves as an important M. alfredi nursery.

Although nursery areas have been identified for a variety of elasmobranch species (Heupel et al., 2019), few studies have specifically examined the benefits of nursery areas for newborn and juvenile elasmobranchs, such as improved fitness and increased survival. Many elasmobranch species, including manta rays and other mobulid rays (Mobula spp.), use shallow and sheltered
habitats like lagoons as nursery areas for newborns (Heupel et al., 2007; Stewart et al., 2018b). Reef lagoons provide several benefits for juvenile elasmobranchs, such as calm sea conditions, protection from large predators, reliable food availability, and opportunities for
social interaction with conspecifics (Guttridge et al., 2011; Jacoby et al., 2012; McCauley et al., 2014; Rojas et al., 2014; Heupel et al., 2019). Occupying sheltered nursery areas may also contribute to higher chances of newborn survival by enabling individuals to grow in a safe environment and become better equipped to later escape predators and find diffuse prey (Branstetter, 1990).

Manta population abundance estimation/Population estimates of photoidentified individuals using a modified POPAN model reveal that Raja Ampat’s reef manta rays are thriving 1668709008
Author(s): Edy Setyawan and others

Description: Population estimates of photo identified individuals using a modified POPAN model reveal that Raja Ampat’s reef manta rays are thriving.
The 6.7-million-hectare Raja Ampat archipelago is home to Indonesia’s largest
reef manta ray (Mobula alfredi) population and a representative network of nine
marine protected areas (MPAs). However, the population dynamics of M. alfredi
in the region are still largely unknown. Using our photo-identification database,
we fitted modified POPAN mark-recapture models with transience and per
capita recruitment parameters to estimate key demographic characteristics of
M. alfredi from two of Raja Ampat’s largest MPAs: Dampier Strait and South East
(SE) Misool. A total of 1,041 unique individuals were photo-identified over an
11-year period (2009–2019) from Dampier Strait (n = 515) and SE Misool (n =
536). In our models, apparent survival probabilities and per capita recruitment
rates were strongly linked with El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) events.
Our models also estimated high apparent survival probabilities and significant
increases in (sub)population sizes in both MPAs over a decade.

Reef manta rays are in decline globally – but new research finds one place in Indonesia where these 1669669814
Author(s): Edy Setyawan
Tags: Raja Ampat, conservation, MPA Network, Manta Ray, marine conservation, Marine protected areas, Reef Manta Ray, coral reefs, Mobula Alfred, Oceans, Citizen Science
Description: Raja Ampat archipelago in West Papua is home to Indonesia’s largest population of reef manta rays, Mobula alfredi. They are not mammals, but cartilaginous fish that are related to sharks. This species is characterised by late maturation and extremely low fertility, which make their populations especially vulnerable. Males start to sexually mature at 9to 13 years old, while females require 13 to 17 years to mature. A female gives birth to only one pup every 2 to 6 years after about one year of pregnancy.
Their populations have been depleted due to overfishing in many regions in Indo-Pacific.

Riset buktikan populasi pari manta karang terus tumbuh di Raja Ampat, buah dari kebijakan dan upaya 1669670019

Description: Kepulauan Raja Ampat, Papua Barat, adalah habitat bagi kebanyakan pari manta karang di Indonesia, Mobula alfredi. Satwa laut ini bukanlah mamalia, melainkan ikan bertulang rawan yang masih berkerabat dengan hiu.
Populasi pari manta karang rentan terganggu. Pasalnya, mereka bertumbuh
dewasa sangat lambat dan memiliki tingkat kesuburan yang sangat rendah. Pejantannya baru menjadi dewasa secara seksual pada umur 9-13 tahun, sedangkan betina butuh waktu lebih lama lagi – sekitar 13-17 tahun. Pari manta karang betina juga hanya melahirkan satu individu saban 2-6 tahun, dengan masa kehamilan mencapai setahun.
Di kawasan Indo-Pasifik seperti Nusa Tenggara Timur, Sulawesi Utara, Filipina, dan Papua Nugini, populasi pari manta karang menyusut karena penangkapan berlebihan. Tren yang sama juga terjadi di Mozambik di Afrika Timur.
