New Coral Reef Breeding Nursery on Bonaire

A brand new, innovative floating coral fish breeding nursery is being tested at the Dive Friends Sand Dollar location on Bonaire.  This project, led by the startup company RoffaReefs, hopes to improve local coral reef fish populations to enhance the overall coral reef health for the Bonaire National Marine Park.

Coral reefs are extraordinarily dynamic yet fragile ecosystems.  From the microorganisms working to build the reef’s foundation to the more recognizable reef inhabitants at the top of the food chain, this diverse ecosystem faces an incalculable number of threats. It is widely known that globally, reefs are struggling to keep up with the changes due to climate change and increased human activity. Sander van Lopik of RoffaReefs has a unique approach to help strengthen coral reefs in the future.

Floating Fish Nursery

As part of the larger World Wide Fund for Nature the Netherlands (WWF-NL) “Dutch Caribbean Marine Strategy”, RoffaReefs has designed a system to breed marine fish larvae both in controlled aquarium environments and in the wild. Founded in the Rotterdam Zoo Diergaarde Blijdorp, RoffaReefs will begin testing its fish breeding system in the Bonaire National Marine Park through the use of a floating fish nursery. The goal of this project is to strengthen the overall health of the coral reefs by bolstering the local fish populations. Reef fish help maintain balance throughout the coral reefs as herbivorous fish graze on algae which would otherwise smother the coral while carnivorous fish aid in keeping overall populations in balance.

The floating fish nursery is being tested at the Dive Friends Sand Dollar location along the western coast of Bonaire. Throughout the pilot study, data will be collected to aid in improving the breeding system for the next series of trials. This research is a collaborative effort involving WWF-NL, the Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA), STINAPA, TU Delft, Diergaarde Blijdorp and KKV lijn in water B.V.

DCNA-office lab

During the project, the researchers have their laboratory set-up at the DCNA office on Bonaire. Here, they are bringing fish eggs to determine the species. The goal is to develop an automatic imagery recognition tool to recognize the species with the ultimate goal to develop a “fish spawning calendar” so we know when and where fish species reproduce during the year.

Future

Projects, such as the RoffaReefs fish nursery, can contribute to healthier coral reefs which is important amongst others for local fisheries, tourism, and to mitigate the effects of sea level rise and worsening storm conditions.

First mosquito survey for the ABC islands in nearly 75 years

Dutch and Papiamentu below

Kralendijk, Bonaire – 10th of November – In 2018 , Naturalis Biodiversity Center conducted the first mosquito survey for the Dutch Leeward Islands (Sint Maarten, Sint Eustatius and Saba) in more than 70 years. In November, they plan to repeat these surveys, this time for the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. The team will consist of five researchers and two students from different institutes and universities, and will be executed in close collaboration with the local vector control units of each island.

In addition to being a household nuisance, mosquitoes can spread a number of human and livestock pathogens which are responsible for causing diseases such as dengue, chikungunya, malaria, Zika, Rift Valley and West Nile Fever. In the last decade, the Caribbean has seen a series of mosquito-borne disease outbreaks including the 2014 chikungunya outbreak, the 2016 Zika outbreak and several dengue outbreaks with the last one documented in 2020.

Mosquito Surveys

A new study, led by Naturalis Biodiversity Center from Leiden, the Netherlands, will assess the current mosquito biodiversity across the islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao. The aim will be to visit each island for 7-10 days, setting 10-16 traps to inventory adult mosquitos. In addition, the aquatic larvae will be sampled from various potential mosquito breeding sites. These surveys will take place between November 13th and December 6th, starting in Aruba. The aim of the expedition is to gain knowledge on mosquito diversity and establish identification tools to help public health research on the islands.

Human Health Implications

Often during an outbreak, the only way to slow down the spread of a disease is to control the specific mosquito population responsible for its dissemination. Therefore, effective management requires updated information on both local mosquito populations as well as their distribution across the islands. As environmental conditions continue to shift due to climate, paired with an increase in human population for the islands, we can expect to see changes in insect populations (such as mosquitos) in the future.

This expedition is part of the Mobocon Program, which focuses on capacity building for mosquito borne disease control in Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba. This program already started in 2017 and is funded by the Dutch Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport

EERSTE MUGGENONDERZOEK OP ARUBA, BONAIRE EN CURAÇAO IN BIJNA 75 JAAR

Kralendijk, Bonaire – 10 november – In 2018 voerde Naturalis Biodiversity Center het eerste steekmuggenonderzoek uit op de Bovenwindse Eilanden (Sint Maarten, Sint Eustatius en Saba) in meer dan 70 jaar. In november worden deze onderzoeken herhaald, ditmaal op Aruba, Bonaire en Curaçao. Het team zal bestaan ​​uit vijf onderzoekers en twee studenten van verschillende instellingen en universiteiten. Het onderzoek wordt uitgevoerd in nauwe samenwerking met de lokale eenheden voor vectorbestrijding van elk van deze eilanden.

Steekmuggen zijn niet alleen vervelend, maar kunnen ook allerlei pathogenen overbrengen bij mensen en landbouwdieren, die bijvoorbeeld kunnen leiden tot ziektes als dengue, chikungunya, malaria, zika, riftdalkoorts en het westnijlkoorts. In de afgelopen tien jaar zijn er in het Caribisch gebied diverse uitbraken van door muggen overgedragen ziektes geweest, onder andere chikungunya in 2014, zika in 2016 en meerdere dengue-uitbraken, waarvan de laatste is gemeld in 2020.

Muggenonderzoek

Er komt een nieuw onderzoek onder leiding van het Leidse Naturalis Biodiversity Center om de huidige muggenbiodiversiteit op de eilanden Aruba, Bonaire en Curaçao in kaart te brengen. Het doel is om 7-10 dagen naar elk eiland te gaan, waarbij 10-16 vallen worden geplaatst om volwassen muggen te inventariseren. Daarnaast worden de larven in het water bemonsterd op verschillende mogelijke broedplaatsen van steekmuggen. Deze onderzoeken vinden plaats tussen 13 november en 6 december, te beginnen op Aruba. Het doel van de expeditie is kennis opdoen over de diversiteit van steekmuggen en het maken van hulpmiddelen voor de determinatie van steekmuggen ter  ondersteuning van het volksgezondheidsonderzoek op de eilanden.

Gevolgen voor de volksgezondheid

Bij een uitbraak is het beheersen van de specifieke muggenpopulatie die verantwoordelijk is voor de verspreiding van de ziekte vaak de enige manier om de verspreiding te vertragen. Daarom is er up-to-date informatie nodig over lokale muggenpopulaties en de verspreiding daarvan over de eilanden om ziektes effectief te beheersen. Aangezien de omstandigheden als gevolg van het klimaat telkens verschuiven en er steeds meer mensen wonen op de eilanden, zijn er in de toekomst veranderingen in de insectenpopulaties (zoals die van muggen) te verwachten.

Deze expeditie maakt deel uit van het Mobocon-programma, dat zich richt op capaciteitsopbouw voor de bestrijding van door muggen overgedragen ziektes op Bonaire, Sint Eustatius en Saba. Dit programma is al in 2017 gestart en wordt gefinancierd door het ministerie van Volksgezondheid, Welzijn en Sport.

DCNA Launches Bionews Kids – A New Magazine to Empower Youth in the Dutch Caribbean

Nederlands, Papiamento and Papiamentu below.

 

 

Kralendijk, Bonaire –The Dutch Caribbean Nature Alliance (DCNA) released the first edition of Bionews Kids. Bionews Kids is a free printed and online nature magazine for children of ages 9-11 on the six Dutch Caribbean islands. It was designed based on increasing reading, sparking curiosity and educate kids about the extraordinary nature and its threats on the six Dutch Caribbean islands. This in support to the nature education programs of the Protected Area Management Organizations on Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, Sint Eustatius and Sint Maarten. The first Bionews Kids edition includes a drawing competition and DCNA encourages all kids to participate.

 Supporting Nature Education and public awareness

DCNA’s mission is to support the Protected Area Management Organizations on the six islands of the Dutch Caribbean. One of DCNA’s goals is the promotion of educational outreach and public awareness. Hence, the creation of the first issue of Bionews Kids, which is a branch of Bionews (for adults). Bionews is a free monthly digital newsletter that gives updates on the latest nature news with a focus on research and monitoring, events and overall activities concerning the members of DCNA.

Multilingual nature magazine for kids

Bionews Kids is a magazine comprising of various elements that is made freely available to youth between 9 and 11 years old on the islands of Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao, Saba, St. Eustatius, and St. Maarten in the languages of English, Dutch, Papiamento, and Papiamentu. The magazine will be made available through the nature education programs at the Protected Area Management Organizations. The aim of the magazine is to promote reading on the islands with a magazine that is applicable to the experiences of the children on these islands with the nature they can find in their own backyards. DCNA introduces their new marine mascot of the magazine, Tara the Turtle, who will make a reappearance in future issues.

Theme: sea

For this first issue of Bionews Kids, the main theme is the marine environment. Kids can read amongst others about coral reefs, tidepools and mangroves that are particularly specific to some of the islands and about many creatures that they may or may not encounter. The magazine also includes activities such as coloring pages, beach journal, and puzzles. Besides these activities, readers can begin grasping environmental words and use the photo ID of sea animals continuously.

Drawing Competition

To create stewards of the sea surrounding the readers’ island, kids can participate in a drawing competition that is found in Bionews Kids. It is centered on the theme “Why I love the ocean and why I want to protect it.” Readers can become creative in their drawings and the chosen drawing will be featured in the next Bionews Kids magazine. This magazine hopes to encourage reading and learning of nature on the islands to empower our children and continue the investment of nature education.

To participate in the drawing competition, the reader needs to include their name, age, island, and phone number and upload it on the Bionews Kids page on the DCNA website at BioNews Kids Online: https://dcnanature.org/bionews-kids/. You can also hand it in to the local park organization education officer on their respective island (https://dcnanature.org/nature-education/). Deadline for the drawing to submitted is March 18th, 2022. Announcement of the winner will be found on the DCNA website and social media by April 1st, 2022.
