"Connecting the Caribbean with Seabird Conservation" is a 27-minute documentary about the need for seabird conservation in the Caribbean. Transboundaried by nature, seabirds depend on a range of habitats and territories and connect the Caribbean. This documentary presents important information about seabirds, explores some of the threats they face and the efforts to deal with these threats across the Caribbean, and how The Nature Conservancy has tried to protect one of these bird species, the Masked Booby on the Pedro Cays. It features two workshops in the Pedro Cays that bring together scientists and conservationists from across the Caribbean.
A film by Esther Figueroa, Vagabond Media, produced for The Nature Conservancy Jamaica Programme.
Caveat: Please note that this film was released in 2012 and portrayed recent successes in conservation management of the Pedro Cays. Soon after the film's release, TNC stopped funding conservation on the cays, and though others like the Jamaica Environment Trust have tried to continue conservation the problems of human waste, sanitation and environmental management remain. New efforts by TNC and others are about to resume, their probable outcomes remain to be seen.
