Enrichment

Enrichment

When animals are recovering, they need certain things to help feel “at home”. Whether it’s a branch, hamster wheels, a hollowed-out tree, or a pool of ice, our patients need things to keep them occupied and enhance their skills. This presentation discusses what the CROW team does for enrichment and why this is important. One of CROW’s Animal Ambassadors will be present.

Speaker Series: Grouper Moon Project

Since 2002, REEF's Grouper Moon Project has researched Nassau Grouper conservation in the Cayman Islands. During full winter moons, Nassau Grouper travel great distances to meet as spawning aggregations and reproduce. This species has suffered dramatic declines in populations due to fishing on spawning sites. This project aims to study this social and ecological cornerstone of Caribbean coral reefs in partnership with the Cayman Islands Department of Environment and academic scientists. Learn about how scientists and researchers are protecting and monitoring Nassau Grouper and practices we can implement as individuals to promote sustainable fisheries.
