CIEE Announces November Public Lectures

CIEE has announced their next three public lectures for the month of November, and a wide variety of topics are included.  Everyone is invited to attend, and entrance is always free.

Tonight, the title of the presentation is “FORCE Project: Future of Reefs in a Changing Environment” by Stacey M. Williams, PhD, Marine Biologist Consultant, FORCE.

Next Wednesday, November 9th, the presentation will be, “Dispelling Jaws: Sharks Can Be Selective Feeders” by Steve Newman, PhD, School of Marine Science and Technology, Newcastle University.

Dr. Williams and Dr. Newman are both on Bonaire conducting research on how climate change may affect the reefs on Bonaire.  FORCE (Future of Reefs in a Changing Environment) project is an integrated research project which takes an ecosystem approach, linking social and ecological aspects toward managing Caribbean coral reefs in the face of climate change.  The project is a joint research endeavor between social and natural sciences to help sustain the services provided by coral reefs on which so many people depend. The ten projects include research into ecological and social processes that affect coral reef health; linking the ecological and social processes underpinning reef health, and the creation of tools to aide practitioners, stakeholders, and governments plan for more effective coral reef management.

The third public lecture will be held on Tuesday, November 15th and is entitled, “Archaeological Research at Tanki Maraka, With Development Potentials for Bonaire” and will be presented by Jay B. Haviser, PhD.  Dr. Haviser is an archaeologist who has conducted and participated in extensive archaeological work in St. Martin. A well published expert on ancient Amerindian archeology, the USA-born Dr. Haviser has served as vice president of the International Association of Caribbean Archeology (1993-1997), editorial review board member of the Latin American Antiquity Journal, a member of the Curacao Historical Society, Society of Africanist Archeology, and Society of Professional Archaeologists. Dr. Haviser is a graduate of Florida State University, USA, and the Royal University of Leiden, The Netherlands.
