Seacology Proudly Introduces Three New Videos Highlighting Our Important Work
11/07/08

Seacology: Conserving Island Environments & Cultures

The following video is an introduction to Seacology, highlighting the origins of the organization, the work we do now to conserve island environments, as well as our exciting travel program.

 

Seacology's Madagascar flying fox project

Because of hunting for bushmeat, uncontrolled fires and logging, many roosts of the Madagascar Flying Fox, which are important pollinators, have disappeared. In Madagascar's Mangoro Region, a close network of 12 small forest fragments holds up to 4,000 of these bats. Seven nearby communities are working with local organizations Arongam-panihy - Culture, Communication and Environment (ACCE), and Lamin'asa Fiarovana Ramanavy sy Fanigy to implement a dina, or social contract, to protect the roosts. In exchange for this agreement, Seacology will provide funding for badly-needed repairs to each of the seven community municipal offices and 20 primary schools near the roosts.

 

Seacology's southern Madagascar project

The Manafiafy Forest in Southeast Madagascar's Sainte Luce area is one of the last remaining stands of littoral forest in the country and is home to critically endangered palms, birds and the rare brown collared lemur. Azafady, an organization based in the U.K., has been asked by villagers in the Sainte Luce area to facilitate the transfer of control over the 1,730-acre forest, in which the community wishes to ban all commercial exploitation. Members of the community who patrol the area and act as guides are forced to spend up to six hours per day getting to and from the forest, and do not have a base from which to coordinate their activities. Seacology is working with Azafady to construct four forest stations within the protected area.

 

The Second Annual Glorious Glass Pumpkin Harvest in Marin
08/29/08

Marin's Glorious Glass Pumpkin Harvest October 25 & 26, 2008 This is a very special invitation to Save the Date! Seacology’s second annual trek to Marin County to participate in their Glorious Glass Pumpkin Harvest is just around the corner. Please join us in welcoming autumn in style at the Falkirk Cultural Center, downtown San Rafael, for this wonderful community event. Hand blown glass pumpkins of every size, color and whimsy fan out across the Falkirk’s expansive lawn creating a spectacle of amazing color and artistry. Thousands of fanciful glass pumpkins – each one an original work of art – will be on display as if they had magically sprung up on the center’s grassy slopes. Come and talk to the artists and watch in rapt attention as they demonstrate their glass blowing skills. And don’t leave without procuring a pumpkin! Proceeds from this weekend event will benefit Seacology and San Rafael's Falkirk Cultural Center, a beloved community landmark and 19th century country estate listed on the National Historic Register.
