Building local capacity for aquatic wildlife's sustainable management
Patagonia’s waterways possess significant levels of biodiversity. The region is facing environmental challenges, such as overfishing, mining and marine pollution, that threaten its aquatic wildlife.
Through a series of community talks and workshops, this project will teach local communities about Patagonian aquatic wildlife on how these animals interact with their environment and how communities can manage aquatic resources more sustainably. This project will also produce a short film on management of Patagonian aquatic animals for educational purposes.
The project is led by world expert on aquatic animal habitat utilisation, Dr Adam Barnett from James Cook University.
