Join in a Barefoot Beach Clean on one of North Devons beaches.

To send a link to this page to a friend, you must be logged in.

Three beach cleans will be held in Westward Ho!, Instow and Croyde this Saturday.

Meet at Westward Ho! Tesco Express at 9.30am; at the slipway opposite the Commadore Hotel in Instow at 11am; or at Croyde beach cafe at 10am for the clean ups.

Tom Bell, Marine Conservation Society campaigns manager, said: Our domestic habits over the last 50 years or so have resulted in dirty beaches.

We throw more stuff away than ever.

Plastic in the marine environment may take hundreds of years to break down and it washes up or is blown onto beaches in bits from micro pieces to larger chunks.

We flush stuff down the loo we shouldnt, and that ends up in our water ways and then our beaches.

Bay of Islands marine reserves long overdue

Independent conservation organisation Forest & Bird is welcoming a proposal from a local community group for two marine reserves to be created in the Bay of Islands.

Fish Forever released the proposal at a function last night (Thursday) at the Copthorne Hotel in Waitangi.

Forest & Bird Marine Conservation Advocate Katrina Goddard says the current lack of any marine reserves in the Bay is typical of the poor level of marine protection found throughout New Zealand waters.

The Bay of Islands is hugely popular with tourists, recreational anglers, and boaties, and there is an urgent need to set aside a portion of the area for full marine protection. These reserves would allow significant pockets of marine life to flourish.

Right now, snorkellers in the Bay of Islands commonly see kina barrens vast areas where the absence of crayfish and snapper has allowed kina to multiply, killing off kelp, leaving rocks bare, and starving juvenile fish of important habitats.

Easily accessible marine reserves like those proposed by Fish Forever draw huge numbers of visitors, protect biodiversity and help replenish fish stocks across the wider area, Katrina Goddard says.

More than 380,000 people visit the Goat Island Marine Reserve every year. People fishing outside the marine reserves boundaries are a common sight so its pretty clear there would be more than just conservation benefits to having no-take marine reserves in the Bay of Islands.

Less than one per cent of New Zealands total marine area is protected by marine reserves. We need marine reserves that protect all the various ocean habitats and marine life, whether in deep offshore waters, or in areas like the Bay of Islands.

We hope that plenty of New Zealanders take the opportunity to have their say on Fish Forevers proposal, Katrina Goddard says.

A 13-year study of coral reefs spontaneously recovering in the Cayman Islands offers hope of refuting often doomsday forecasts about the worldwide decline of the colorful marine habitat.

By Barbara Liston

ORLANDO, Florida (Reuters) – A 13-year study of coral reefs spontaneously recovering in the Cayman Islands offers hope of refuting often doomsday forecasts about the worldwide decline of the colorful marine habitat.

Scientists monitoring the Cayman reefs noted a 40 percent decline in live coral cover between 1999 and 2004 during a period of warmer seas in the Caribbean.

However, seven years later, the amount, size and density of the live coral had returned to 1999 levels as sea temperatures eased, according to Tom Frazer, professor of aquatic ecology at the University of Florida and part of the research team.

“People have said these systems don’t have a chance,” Frazer told Reuters. “What we are saying is: ‘Hey, this is evidence they do have a chance.’”

Coral reefs account for 0.01 percent of the marine environment. They harbor up to 25 percent of the different species of marine organisms and generate millions of dollars for the fishing and tourism industries, the report states.

“They’re kind of like the rain forest of the sea,” Frazer said.

The reefs are dying around the world. In 2012, the Australian Institute of Marine Science reported that coral coverage of the Great Barrier Reef had declined by half over the previous 27 years.

The Cayman Islands study, conducted with the Central Caribbean Marine Institute there, was published in the November online issue of the San Francisco-based Public Library of Science and highlighted in last month’s issue of the Science journal.

SURABAYA, Nov 15 (Bernama) – The Indonesian government and Germany’s Hochscule Wismar University of Applied Science are working together to develop two islands.

They are Poteran Island of Sumenep, East Java and Maratua Island of Berau, East Kalimantan, Indonesian news agency ANTARA reported.

Eko Budi Jatmiko, Dean of Marine Technology Faculty of Surabaya Institute of Technology (ITS), said Thursday the Marine and Fishery Ministry (KKP) had appointed ITS to adopt the Poteran and Maratua Islands.

A team from ITS and Hochscule Wismar University discussed various methods of taking this forward at the Sustainable Island Development Initiatives (SIDI) Week 2013 held earlier this week, and will visit the islands between Nov 15 and 17.

“The cooperation between ITS and Germany is a follow-up of an agreement signed in 2012,” Jatmiko said.

Four universities will take part in the adoption plan: ITS, Bogor Institute of Agriculture, Hasanudin University, and University of Indonesia.

Jatmiko said the focus of development will be different for both islands.

Research on Maratua Island will focus on developing the island’s tourism potential without neglecting the environmental or social aspects of the surroundings.

Poteran Island will be a place for research on tropical herbal extracts that will be used in medical products, food or cosmetics.
