CONSERVATION IN MAURITIUS AND RODRIGUES


By Mike Maunder

Isolated oceanic islands contain some the world's most threatened ecosystems. These unique communities are the home to many species found nowhere else on earth and provide a real challenge to conservationists. However, the main phase of environmental destruction for a number of islands has passed, and the opportunity now exists to both restore degraded habitats and reintroduce lost and threatened species.

Mauritius and Rodrigues in the Indian Ocean are recognized as centers of endemism for vascular plants, birds, reptiles and molluscs. The islands contain some of the world's rarest plant and animal species. Between 800 and 900 plant species occur on Mauritius, including 8 endemic genera. Three hundred species of plants are only found on Mauritius, of these about 80% are threatened with extinction.

The future of conservation on Mauritius and Rodrigues lies with developing collaborative conservation programs linking national ministries with local non-governmental groups and international conservation agencies. This allows a broad base of expertise to be utilized. In recognition of this need a cooperative agreement was signed on the 5th of December at the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust headquarters between conservation agencies and the Mauritius government. Signatories from the Jersey Wildlife Preservation Trust (JWPT), the Mauritius Wildlife Fund (MWF), the Fauna and Flora Preservation Society (FFPS), and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (RBGK) joined the Minister of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the Hon. Keertee Ruhee, Government of Mauritius. Through established patterns of collaboration the partners are supporting habitat survey and management, species re-introduction and captive propagation, professional training and capacity building. This agreement builds on the long involvement of JWPT and MWF in promoting conservation on Mauritius, such as the successful recovery of the Mauritian kestrel, once described as the rarest bird in the world. The organizations involved will provide the required skills in the horticultural and conservation management of threatened plants and habitats (RBGK), island restoration, vertebrate captive breeding and introductions (JWPT), training and institutional strengthening (FFPS). Three priority areas include: the relictual areas of forest on Rodrigues; the remnant lowland forest community on Ile aux Aigrettes; and the highly degraded but recovering Round Island.

Tha Mascarenes are not unique with regard to the extent of environmental degradation and to the large number of critically endangered taxa. A massive initiative in island restoration will be required in many island areas, such as the Caribbean, Polynesia and the Philippines, to ensure the survival of threatened biotas and essential landscape services such as the retention of watersheds. The conservation work underway on Mauritius is a model of integrated conservation management.

LEATHERBACK TURTLE TAGGING


The leatherback turtle (Dermochelys coriacea) nests on two major sections of beach along a 60-mile stretch of the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. Tagging studies have revealed that many Costa Rican leatherbacks do not show strong nesting site fidelity. Individuals tagged in southern Costa Rica have been encountered in the northern part of the country and Panama. Because individual animals may use widely separated nesting beaches, conservation efforts need to focus on as many beaches as possible in order to adequately protect the resource; otherwise, individuals protected at one beach may be disturbed or killed when they visit another.

During the 1995 leatherback nesting season, February through June, the Caribbean Conservation Corporation (CCC) will coordinate turtle studies on two stretches of beach north of Puerto Limon. The Endangered Wildlife Trust (UK) will monitor a 4-mile stretch of beach within the private Mondonguillo Nature Reserve, south of Tortuguero National Park. CCC will monitor a 20-mile stretch of beach at the northern end of the leatherback nesting range, including all of Tortuguero National Park. Research and monitoring activities will consist of daily beach surveys, tagging, collection of biometric data and determination of clutch survival. These activities will be directed by CCC Scientific Director, Dr. Jeanne A. Mortimer.

The CCC seeks individuals willing to participate in the leatherback program as paying volunteers. Eight and fifteen day openings are available costing $1,470 and $1,790 respectively. Volunteers will be involved in all aspects of the leatherback project. The fee covers round-trip airfare from Miami, food, accommodations and the cost of the research project.

Scientists and volunteers will be housed at the CCC's Tortuguero Biological Field Station. Tortuguero is a remote roadless area on the coast, at the edge of a wet tropical rain forest that is criss-crossed by rivers and streams. Access is by boat or plane. The field station is located adjacent to the small village of Tortuguero and the 20,000 hectare Tortuguero National Park. In addition to working with the turtles, volunteers will have the opportunity to meet people typical of a Caribbean coastal community and go on day trips organized by the field station to explore the rain forest of the National Park and other ecosystems of the northern Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

For more information and group rates, please contact: Caroline Reiners, Tortuguero Coordinator, Caribbean Conservation Corporation, P. O. Box 2866, Gainesville, Florida 32602-2866; Tel.: (904) 373-6441; Fax: (904) 375-2449; e-mail: creiner@ccc.org.

Many wildlife species are undergoing serious population declines throughout their ranges due to habitat fragmentation and other anthropogenic effects. State and federal agencies are subject to increasing pressure to identify important habitat features for impact assessment, mitigation, and conservation initiatives. Until now, no methodology existed that allowed agencies to predict potential habitat for wetland-dependent amphibians, reptiles, and mammals. Funded by the New England Transportation Consortium and the Federal Highway Administration, WEThings: Wetland Habitat Indicators for Non-Game Species (Wetland dependent amphibians, reptiles and mammals of New England) serves as a methodology to meet this need in the New England states. The WEThings method is based on an extensive literature review of measurable habitat characteristics conducted for 22 amphibian, 15 reptile, and 22 mammal species, many of which are listed as rare, threatened, or endangered in at least one of the six New England states. Detailed summaries of the literature were compiled for each species and serve as the basis from which predictive models were produced. The models may be used individually but also have been combined into a software package that provides a composite habitat predicting model for all species. The two volume set costs $75.00, including postage. Order Publication 94-1 from the Environmental Institute, Blaisdell House, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA 01003- 0820.
