PANAMA POSSE PARTNERS WITH ADVENTURE SCIENTISTS AND UNIVERSITY OF GUADALAJARA TO CONDUCT MEXICAN CORAL REEF STUDIES

 

Teams of volunteer divers will survey up to 40 coral reef sites multiple times a year for several years. Mexicoโ€™s Pacific Coast is harbor to some of the worldโ€™s most bio-diverse coral reefs. They support fishes, sharks, turtles, and other marine life. They also buffer the coastline from         intense storms and provide livelihoods from fishing and tourism. Yet these reefs are imperiled by ocean acidification, more frequent and powerful storms due to climate change, and damage from tourism.

 

Adventure Scientists is recruiting experienced Panama Posse participants  to provide Universidad de Guadalajaraโ€™s Dr. Paola Rodrรญguez-Troncoso and Dr. Amรญlcar Cupul Magaรฑa with critical data to understand how climate change and human pressure are impacting coral communities. The project will provide hard data to government partners to support policy recommendations that can protect these unique reefs into the future.

 

At each field site, certified dive teams will swim five different 25-meter-long belt transects parallel to the coast. Teams will swim each of the five transects three times to: 

 

  •     Identify fish species, size, and ratio of adults to juveniles
  •     Count abundance of sea urchin, sea stars, sea cucumbers, etc.
  •     Categorize different coral types
  •     Measure contour of seafloor

 

Panama Posse  is an international maritime organization which supports private yachts on their journeys between the US West Coast and US East Coast via the Panama Canal

 

 

Adventure Scientists is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that equips partners with data collected from the outdoors that are crucial to addressing environmental and human health challenges 

 

 

Universidad de Guadalajara  Dr. Paola Rodrรญguez Troncoso and Dr. Amรญlcar Cupul Magaรฑa are leading the study to understand how climate change and human pressure is impacting corals. 

The project will provide hard data to support policy recommendations that can protect these unique reefs into the future.
