Pass On Parrotfish
A community-based conservation campaign
Candice Brittain and the team at the Island School in Eleuthera, The Bahamas are implementing a very creative community-based parrotfish conservation campaign in collaboration with the Deep Creek Middle School. Please check out the children's book that we have created abou the parrotfish. In addition, please check out the stories of the campaign implementation in The Bahamas. The campaign integrates topics of parrotfish conservation into local cultural and educational activities.
The 8th grade students at Deep Creek Middle School went out to the reef to see the parrotfish for themselves and the coral reef ecosystem in which they interact. The field experience is paired with classroom discussion of the biology and ecological functions of parrotfish
The Junkanoo is cultural celebration of Eleuthera with a carnivalesque atmosphere. Community groups compete for the best float, they show their best moves and have whole lot of fun. This year the Junior Junkanoo chose parrotfish conservation as its central topic.
