The Coral Sea Islands Territory is an external territory of Australia which comprises a group of small and mostly uninhabited tropical islands and reefs in the Coral Sea. The only inhabited island is Willis Island. The territory covers 780,000 km2, most of which is ocean, extending east and south from the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. 2. Willis Island is the only permanently inhabited island in the Coral Sea Islands Territory. The Willis Island weather monitoring station was established in 1921 and equipped with a radio transmitter in order to provide a cyclone early warning service for Queensland. There are usually four weather observers. 3. In 2004, the Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands was declared as a sovereign state as a symbolic political protest by a group of gay rights activists based in Australia in response to the Australian government's refusal to recognise same-sex marriages. The Kingdom was dissolved on 17 November 2017 following the decision made by the Australian people to legalize gay marriage. 4. Australia's Coral Sea is one of the last places on Earth where ocean giants—sharks, tunas, marlin—still abound. Yet less than 1 percent of the Coral Sea is permanently protected from fishing, oil and gas exploration and seabed mining. 5. The Great Barrier Reef, a part of the Coral Sea just off of Australia’s northeastern Queensland coast, is the world’s largest coral reef. The reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, can be seen from space and is larger than the Great Wall of China. 6. There are about 30 separate reefs and atolls, twelve being wholly submerged or drying only during low tide, and 18 others with a total of about 51 islets and cays (18 alone on the atoll Lihou Reef), some of which are vegetated. 7. The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought from 4 to 8 May 1942, was a major naval battle between the Imperial Japanese Navy and naval and air forces from the United States and Australia, taking place in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. The battle is historically significant as the first action in which aircraft carriers engaged each other, as well as the first in which neither side's ships sighted or fired directly upon the other.

The Territory of Ashmore and Cartier Islands is an uninhabited external territory of Australia consisting of four low-lying tropical islands in two separate reefs. In July 1938 the Territory was annexed to the Northern Territory, then also administered by the Commonwealth, whose laws, ordinances and regulations applied to the Territory. When self-government was granted to the Northern Territory on 1 July 1978, administration of the Territory was retained by the Commonwealth. 2. Due to its proximity to Indonesia, and the area being traditional fishing grounds of Indonesian fishermen for centuries, some Indonesian groups claim Ashmore Reef to be part of Rote Ndao Regency of East Nusa Tenggara province. However, the Indonesian government does not appear to actively contest Australia's sovereignty of the Territory. Australia's sovereignty is backed up by the fact that the Territory was not administered by the Netherlands (Indonesia's former colonial power), but by the British before it was transferred to Australia. 3. In 1983 the Territory was declared a nature reserve. The Reserve comprises several marine habitats, including seagrass meadows, intertidal sand flats, coral reef flats, and lagoons, and supports an important and diverse range of species, including 14 species of sea snakes, a population of dugong that may be genetically distinct, a diverse marine invertebrate fauna, and many endemic species, especially of sea snakes and molluscs. There are feeding and nesting sites for loggerhead, hawksbill and green turtles. It is classified as an Important Bird Area and has 50,000 breeding pairs of various kinds of seabirds. A high abundance and diversity of sea cucumbers, over-exploited on other reefs in the region, is present, with 45 species recorded. 4. There is no economic activity in the Territory, Ashmore and Cartier Islands being uninhabited. The area has been a traditional fishing ground of Indonesian fishermen for centuries, and continues. In the 1850s, American whalers operated in the region. Mining of phosphate deposits took place on Ashmore Island in the latter half of the 19th century. Today, all the wells in the Territory are infected with cholera or contaminated and undrinkable. 5. At the southern edge of the reef is a shipwreck of the Ann Millicent, an iron-hulled barge of 944 tons wrecked in 1888. The remains of an RAAF Beaufighter can also be seen at low tide. Formerly used as a bombing range, access to the island is prohibited because of the risk of unexploded ordnances. The area is still a gazetted Defence Practice Area, but is no longer in active use. 6. Today, the Territory is administered from Canberra by the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, which is also responsible for the administration of the territories of Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, the Coral Sea Islands, Jervis Bay Territory and Norfolk Island. 7. As Ashmore Reef is the closest point of Australian territory to Indonesia, it was a popular target for people smugglers transporting asylum seekers en route to Australia. Once they had landed on Ashmore Island, asylum seekers could claim to have entered Australian migration zone and request to be processed as refugees.

Indo-Pacific: The world of the Sulu Sea
 
50:28
The heart of the Indo-Pacific region, the Sulu sea, separates the north-ern coast of Borneo and the west coast of the Philippines. The coasts of the relatively small ocean, are home to inhabitants with a colourful culture and abundant animal life invites nature lovers for a visit. The island of Omadal is home of the Bajau. This nomadic tribe lives on wooden vessels or ashore in pile-dwellings. Harvesting seaweed generates them the money that is needed to buy all other goods on the market. The underwater world of the Sulu sea is dominated by intact colourful reefs. Beautiful coloured mantis shrimps hunt with spears or their legs. Harlequin prawns always hold a starfish in standby to eat of. The Mimic Oktopus, a squid, camouflages himself as a flounder or as a starfish. Only rarely will he be seen in his real shape, as an octopus. The National territory of the Philippines covers 7000 islands, build from volcanic activities. The Mt. Pinatobo was considered to be extinct. But it just was dormant. When he woke up in 1991, the most powerful eruption of the 20th Century buried whole areas underneath his volcanic ashes. At the last location of this journey the camera crew got goose-flesh thanks to a very special tradition of the Ibanoi people on the island of Luzon. The team was allowed to film how these natives mummify those who passed away and bury them in tiny wood coffins.

Contested territory wrangle renews after Red Sea island handover
 
02:47
(20 Apr 2016) LEAD IN: Egypt's decision to hand back two Red Sea islands to Saudi control has led Sudan to make renewed calls for the return of their disputed territory. The Halayib Triangle, containing the areas Halayib and Shalateen, is the territory in question. STORY-LINE: The Sudanese Government issued a warning on Sunday regarding the sovereignty of the disputed regions of Halayib and Shalateen. The Halayib Triangle, contested land next to the Red sea, has been the subject of territorial wrangling for over 50 years, and Sudan's repeated calls for Egypt to relinquish control have been largely ignored. The recently signed agreement between Saudi Arabia and Egypt in reference to islands of Tiran and Sanafir, has stoked up the claims. If land can be handed back, has a precedent been set? The Sudanese Foreign Minister, Ibrahim Ghandour, plays down any tensions with their northern neighbours. "It is not an escalation and Sudan does not want escalate this issue, and could have done it long time ago if wanted to, but Sudan would look forward to resolving this issue in the framework of a brotherhood," he says. However, Ghandour raises the issue of documentation, and would like to see Egypt's paperwork. His department issued a statement on Sunday night which called for Egypt to clarify what had been agreed on with the Saudi deal "doesn't touch the legal, historical Sudanese sovereignty of Halayib/Shalateen." Yossif Elgalal, Chief Editor of Sudanese news organisation Assayha, says that the Sudanese government want Egypt to hold direct negotiations or move towards international arbitration - using the return of Taba from Israel to Egyptian sovereignty in 1989 as the example.

What does China want? | The Economist
 
04:07
An animated infographic depicting China’s territorial disputes. Is China trying to expand its territory? Click here to subscribe to The Economist on YouTube: http://econ.trib.al/rWl91R7 ONE reason China’s spectacular rise sometimes alarms its neighbours is that it is not a status quo power. From its inland, western borders to its eastern and southern seaboard, it claims territory it does not control. In the west, China’s border dispute with India is more than a minor cartographic tiff. China claims an area of India that is three times the size of Switzerland, the state of Arunachal Pradesh. Further west, China occupies Indian claimed territory next to Ladakh in Kashmir, an area called the Aksai Chin. China humiliated India in a brief, bloody war over the dispute in 1962. Since 1988, the two countries have put the dispute on the backburner and got on with developing commercial ties, despite occasional flare-ups. More immediately dangerous is the stand-off between China and Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, known as the Senkakus in Japan and Diaoyu in Chinese. Japan says they have always been its territory and admits no dispute, claiming also that China only started expressing an interest when it began to seem the area might be rich in oil and gas. A new and much more dangerous phase of the dispute began in 2012 after Japan’s government nationalised three of the islands by buying them from their private owner. China accused Japan of breaking an understanding not to change the islands’ status. Ever since, it has been challenging not just Japan’s claim to sovereignty over the islands, but its claim to control them, sending Chinese ships and planes to patrol them. Raising the stakes is Japan’s alliance with America, which says that though it takes no position on who owns the islands, they are covered by its defence treaty with Japan, since it administers them. Especially provocative to America and Japan was China’s unilateral announcement in November 2013 of an Air-defence Identification Zone, covering the islands. The worry is less that big powers will deliberately go to war over these desolate little rocks, but that an accidental collision at sea or in the air might escalate unforeseeably. Similar fears cloud disputes in the South China Sea, where the maritime claims in South-East Asia are even more complex, and, again, competition is made more intense by speculation about vast potential wealth in hydrocarbon resources. Vietnam was incensed in May 2014 when China moved a massive oil-rig to drill for two months in what it claimed as its waters. This was near the Paracel Islands, controlled by China since it evicted the former South Vietnamese from them in 1974. To the south, China and Vietnam also claim the Spratly archipelago, as does Taiwan, whose claim in the sea mirrors China’s. But the Philippines also has a substantial claim. Malaysia and even tiny Brunei also have an interest. But it is with Vietnam and the Philippines that China’s disputes are most active. The Philippines accuses China of salami-slicing tactics, stealthily expanding its presence in disputed waters. In 1995 it evicted the Philippines from Mischief Reef, and in 2012 from Scarborough Shoal. This year it has tried to stop the Philippines from resupplying a small garrison it maintains on the Second Thomas Shoal, and appears to be building an airstrip on the Johnson South Reef. The United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea—UNCLOS—is one forum for tackling these disputes. But UNCLOS cannot rule over territorial disputes, just over the waters habitable islands are entitled to. And China and Taiwan point to a map published in the 1940s, showing a big U-shaped nine-dashed line around the edge of the sea. That, they say, is historically all China’s. This has no basis in international law, and the Philippines, to China’s fury, is challenging it at an UNCLOS tribunal. In fact China often fails to clarify whether its claims are based on the nine-dashed line, or on claims to islands, rocks and shoals. That lack of clarity alarms not just its neighbours and rival claimants, but the United States, which says it has its own national interest in the freedom of navigation in a sea through which a huge chunk of global trade passes Also alarming is that if these arguments over tiny specks in the sea become so unmanageable, what hope is there for resolving the really big issues? And the biggest of all is the status of Taiwan, still seen by China as part of its territory, but in practice independent since 1949. For now, Taiwan and China have a thriving commercial relationship. But polls suggest that few in Taiwan hanker after unification with the mainland. And China’s rulers still insist that one day they will have to accept just that.

Watch the three-part Britain's Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00). This mini-documentary explores the wildlife and heritage of the Pitcairn Islands - the only UK Overseas Territory in the Pacific Ocean. The Pitcairn Islands comprise four islands (Pitcairn, Henderson, Oeno and Ducie), although only Pitcairn is inhabited. Pitcairn is home to many unique animals and plants, as well as introduced animals, such as a giant Galapagos tortoise called Mrs. T and spectacular fig plants. Among Pitcairn's unique plants is a unique abutilon, which is extremely rare, but being propagated in a conservation centre on the island. Offshore, the reefs are exceptional. The remoteness of Pitcairn has allowed exquisite coral gardens to survive. These are exceptionally rich and home to vast numbers of reef fish. On Henderson Island, large seabird colonies abound, including populations of four unique birds that occur now where else on Earth. This film is one of forty mini-documentaries made from the footage not used in the broadcast series. Visit http://www.BritainsTreasureIslands.com to view all 40 mini-documentaries free of charge.

Undiscovered islands in Atlantic Ocean - Wildlife Secret Animals (2018 Documentary)
 
43:24
The vast ocean separates continents meanwhile it also boasts hundreds of small island. From sandy beaches to remote and untouched nature Scattered across all 7 seas and from the tropics to the Antarctic are the UK's Overseas Territories some of the most remote places on the planet. This Documentary we explore this natural wealth of life in locations so remote that few have ever visited. Thousands of miles from the nearest anything these islands scattered across all 7 seas from the Antarctic to the tropics are amongst the remotest places on earth. But life here isn't lonesome. They teem with life from huge penguin colonies to the world's richest coral reefs. Because many are so remote they have acted as laboratories of evolution shaping life in unexpected and dramatic ways. Thrushes that once fed on seeds have evolved a taste for meat. Turtles have become extreme navigators and seabirds nest on single islands and nowhere else in the world. These islands all have one thing in common they are all British overseas territories.... Undiscovered islands in Atlantic Ocean Islands born of fire run from the equatorial Atlantic down to Antarctica. Many are now home to unique species and all have intriguing stories to tell. From huge penguin turtle and seabird colonies to the world's richest coral reefs discover the UK's remarkable distant isolated territories.

Watch the three-part Britain's Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00). This mini-documentary explores the marine life of the coral reefs of the British Indian Ocean Territory. These reefs lie within the largest fully protected marine reserve on Earth, and due to their remoteness, they are widely regarded as the most intact coral ecosystem on the planet. The lack of commercial fishing allows the survival of the greatest densities of fish in all of the Indian Ocean. And the natural diversity is staggering, over one quarter of all reef fishes worldwide occur in the British Indian Ocean Territory, as well as endemic fish and coral species that occur nowhere else. http://www.BritainsTreasureIslands.com Please note: although complementary to the BBC FOUR series, the 40 short mini-documentaries are not commissioned or editorially overseen by BBC.

Protecting the Environment of the British Indian Ocean Territory
 
23:22
The wildlife and environment of the British Indian Ocean Territory (BIOT) are exceptional. The Territory has the greatest marine biodiversity in the UK and its Overseas Territories, as well as some of the cleanest seas and healthiest reef systems in the world. BIOT is home to the world’s biggest arthropod, the coconut crab, which can reach up to one metre across, with densities on Diego Garcia amongst the highest globally. The outer islands and atolls are colonized by internationally important numbers of seabirds, with many thousands of pairs of sooty terns, brown boobies and red-footed boobies regularly breeding there. Endemic species of coral and reef fish inhabit the c. 4,000 km² of shallow coral reefs, which also support over six times the amount of fish that are found on any other Indian Ocean reef. This film is aimed at those working in or transiting through the British Indian Ocean Territory. In addition to showing the natural treasures of BIOT it shows and how those in the Territory can help protect and preserve the environment. This project was made possible with funding from the EU BEST initiative, and is aimed at raising awareness on protecting species and habitats in BIOT. BEST is a voluntary scheme for Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services in EU Outermost Regions and Overseas Countries and Territories. The BEST initiative seeks to promote the conservation of biodiversity and the sustainable use of ecosystem services including ecosystem-based approaches to climate change adaptation and mitigation in the EU outermost regions and overseas countries and territories.

This mini-documentary explore the wildlife of the British Indian Ocean Territory - seven huge coral atolls that include about 60 islands across a vast sector of the Indian Ocean. This UK Overseas Territory is home to unsurveyed waters, an unnamed island and the most pristine coral reefs on Earth. The underwater world of the British Indian Ocean Territory is like peering back through time to see a glimpse of the world before the impact of mankind. About one quarter of all of the reef fishes of the world live here. Unlike so many other parts of the globe, the reefs of the Territory are largely intact and represent the healthiest on earth. On land enormous colonies of sea birds abound; red footed boobies, brown boobies, sooty terns and many others. And in the forests that cover the island, there lives the coconut crab - the biggest terrestrial invertebrate alive today.

Watch the three-part Britain's Treasure Islands documentary series on BBC FOUR, starting Tue 12 Apr 2016 21:00. (repeated Wed 13 Apr 2016 20:00). This mini-documentary explores the wildlife, history and cultural heritage of the Turks and Caicos Islands, a UK Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. The Turks and Caicos Islands are famed for some of the most beautiful coral reefs on Earth, home to sting rays, eagle rays, hundreds of species of reef fishes and humpback whales. Great numbers of sea turtles visit the beaches of the Turks and Caicos Islands to lay their eggs, however have been threatened in recent years due to unsustainable fishing. We follow the story of a successful conservation project to safeguard the turtles and an innovative farm to save another of the Territory's rare animals, the Queen conch. Across the Turks and Caicos Islands, we find historic ruins from many centuries, including old plantations from slave-powered cotton farms, and vast salinas where salt crystals were once farmed. But the now abandoned salinas offer a refuge for countless migratory birds and flamingos today. http://www.BritainsTreasureIslands.com Please note: although complementary to the BBC FOUR series, the 40 short mini-documentaries are not commissioned or editorially overseen by BBC.

Of Rats and Reefs: How rodents are harming tropical coral
 
04:09
Scientists have discovered an unusual link between rats on tropical islands, and the health of nearby reefs. It's all down to invasive rodents setting off a chain reaction that can starve marine ecosystems. The research suggests that rodents may have a bigger impact on reef growth than previously thought. The authors are now urging governments to consider pest control as a strategy to protect corals from climate change.

South China Sea dispute: Vietnam begins dredging on Ladd Reef in disputed waters - TomoNews
 
01:32
LADD REEF, SOUTH CHINA SEA — Satellite images taken by a U.S. based firm revealed suspected dredging work on Ladd Reef, a coral reef controlled by Vietnam in the South China Sea. Ladd Reef is about 450 km from Vietnam’s southeastern coast and is completely submerged at high tide. It has a 42-meter-tall lighthouse, which is operated by a small number of Vietnam soldiers and worker. Analysts told Reuters that such dredging work could be the precursor to more extensive construction on other reefs, and Ladd Reef might be used to boost access for supply ships and fishing boats. It could also help defend the nearby Spratly Islands, where Vietnam has expanded its airstrip. Vietnam is one of the many nations that claims the South China Sea as part of its territory. China, the Philippines, Malaysia, Brunei and Taiwan have also made claims in the region. Vietnam has become China’s main rival in the disputed South China Sea. According to Reuters, the mobile rocket launchers installed on several islands controlled by Vietnam are capable of striking China’s runway and military installations. ----------------------------------------­--------------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Full Documentary. Komodo Dragon | Land of Dragons  - Planet Doc Full Documentaries
 
50:24
Land of dragons is a full documentary that shows us the Komodo dragon, one of the animals most feared by man who lives in the jungle of indonesia. SUBSCRIBE! http://bit.ly/PlanetDoc Full Documentaries every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday! FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://bit.ly/Full-Docs 02:15 During the glaciations of the Pleistocene era, the polar icecaps increased in size, and the level of the sea fell. Some islands, now known as Indonesia, remained isolated while others became joined to the continent. Java was one of these. Once the glaciation was over, the sea returned to its original level, and Java once more became an island, cut off from mainland Asia. 08:25 Isolation gave rise to many endemic species, and incredible biological diversity. In some cases, the species are exclusive to the archipelago, or may be even be restricted to a single island. This is the case of the second largest bovine in the world, the banteng. This is the case of the second largest bovine in the world, the banteng. Unlike man, few predators would even attempt to fell a prey of this size. Their main enemy lies hidden in the depths of the jungle, where it is virtually invisible. It is the largest predator on the island, an animal feared and venerated by man since ancient times, the tiger. 11:36 It was precisely on this island, Java, that the first explorers found one of the most mysterious animals of the archipelago. The Javan rhinoceros is one of the rarest mammals on earth. 16:05 In the coral reef coexist many species. The marine fauna and flora have here found conditions favourable to life. The clown fish, for example, does not rub against a plant, but rather an anemone, an animal of the polyp family. 20:56 Beyond the coral reef, lie the open waters of the ocean, one of the environments most feared by man since ancient times. The seabed is lost in the dark depths, and all that can be seen is the so-called Great Blue, the immensity of the ocean. This is a world almost without colour, dominated by the great sea predators, the territory of the most feared ocean animal, the shark. 23:03 The fiddler crab is another species that live in the archipelago. It’s name comes from it’s enormous claws, almost equal in size as the rest of its body. This outsized claw serves two basic functions: to mark his territory, and attract the females. 24:21 The male can only use one of his claws. The other is so big that it is useless for collecting mud. The females don’t have this problem. 27:30 The mudskipper is one of the few species of fish in the world capable of living out of the water. 28:01 Courtship also takes place on land. The male shows off his dorsal fin to the females. 31:32 The Komodo dragon is the largest living lizard in the world. It can measure 3 metres in length, and weigh 70 kilos. It’s sight and hearing are not very well-developed. To hunt, it relies on smell. 34:17 Such is the voracity of these animals that the adults do not hesitate to attack the young of the species. To avoid being detected, these cover themselves in faeces to disguise their natural smell, and climb up into the trees, where they will remain until the predator has moved off. 35:44 The inhabitants of Komodo leave the dead bodies of their cattle for the great predator, as payment for the use of the meadows. The more deaths there are, the less likely it is the reptiles will collect the debt by attacking the live cattle. 39: 47 Man has lived alongside the giant lizards since time immemorial. Over generations, children and adults who strayed from the settlements have disappeared in the jungle, leaving no trace. 40:17 Today, about 2,500 people live on Komodo and Rinca, two of the four islands on which dragons are still extant. 47: 49 Competition between the dragons and man has brought them to the verge of extinction. Just four years after they were discovered, they were already a protected species but, despite this, numbers continue to fall. It was only 31 years later, in 1936, that the government understood that protecting them would be useless if they didn’t also conserve their natural habitat. The islands on which they still lived were declared sanctuaries and their ecosystems protected. 49:20 The archipelago is, at one and the same time, myth and reality, the place where science and fantasy meet. The movement of the continental plates created it. The glaciations and the sea gave it life, and evolution and isolation have converted it into a legend.

Crocodile Island [Australian Crocodile Documentary] | Wild Things
 
52:00
Crab Island, off the tip of Northern Australia, is the world's most important breeding ground for the distinctive flatback turtle. But its tranquil beauty belies a hidden danger; for here the crocodile is king. In this film, Australian marine expert, Ben Cropp goes in search of these deadly creatures, and captures unique footage of the crocs feeding on turtles as they wait in silence for their dinner to scramble past. Using the latest in infra-red technology he captures this aggressive behaviour in never before seen detail. Cropp also investigates a mixture of other species located around the island; using pole cameras he goes underwater with dangerous predators such as Tiger sharks and Bull rays, and swims amongst the coral to film scenes of beautiful serenity. The documentary also includes dramatic footage of a tiger shark attempting to get back to water after chasing a tern chick onto the shore, and fascinating scenes of Dean Cropp getting up close and personal with a huge Grouper. Ben also follows the islands indigenous hunters as they capture and cook mud crab, whilst observing how the creatures behave in their natural habitat.

TRT World - World in Focus: South China Sea Territory Dispute
 
02:26
Tensions rise as China expands in South China Sea On an issue bringing attention for decades, the Spratly Islands dispute comes back rising tensions after China builds a runway on Fiery Cross Reef. Countries claiming territory raged when Beijing conducted its first flight test on the disputed region. Analysts say China’s military presence in South China Sea could result to a Beijing-controlled air defence zone. China tries to control almost all of South China Sea while it often holds drills as part of its navy's annual training. The territory is believed to have huge oil and gas deposits. Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) member-states Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia and Brunei claim parts of the sea. China’s intense presence at Spratlys causes reactions This comes after Vietnam said Beijing violated its sovereignty when it landed a plane on a runway Beijing built on Spratly islands. "China's test flight in Kagitingan Reef definitely has raised tension, and this is one of the causes of concern for countries in the region. First of all, there was the creation of artificial islands, and then they were able to land their aircraft. We fear that eventually China will be able to take control of the South China sea, and it will affect the freedom of navigation, freedom of overflight plus the unimpeded flow of commerce," Philippine Foreign Affairs spokesperson, Charles Jose said. Which country claims what Beijing claims most of the Paracel and Spratly islands territory, a place that Taiwan also hopes for. However, Vietnam says it was the first to dominate the islands holding documentation proof. Philippines and China both claim Scarborough Shoal (Huangyan Island) whereas Malaysia claims a small part of Spratly islands. Brunei also claims territory in South China Sea but not any of the disputed areas. China completed building a new airfield late in 2015 in the Fiery Cross Reef where as experts support, China could accommodate most Chinese military aircraft.

China hits back at US comments on South China Sea "international territories"
 
01:09
China has hit back at US comments on South China Sea islands as "international territories". Chinese Foreign Ministry replied that China has indisputable sovereignty over the Nansha Islands and their adjacent waters. The ministry also said US is not directly involved and should watch its words and actions.

Crabs & Shrimps at Night - Reef Life of the Andaman - Part 27

Crabs & Shrimps at Night. Part 27 of my DVD, "Reef Life of the Andaman", available at http://www.bubblevision.com/marine-life-DVD.htm or view the whole 2-hour video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ncUVddkK3Q Night diving offers the opportunity to see many crustaceans that are typically hidden in the reef during daylight, but are highly active under the hours of darkness. This video features 13 species. At Koh Doc Mai, near Phuket in Thailand, and in the Similan Islands, we see banded coral shrimps (Stenopus hispidus) plucking plankton from the water to eat. Rock cleaner shrimp (Urocaridella sp.) are busy cleaning a large snapper and a fimbriated moray eel (Gymnothorax fimbriatus). Space is at a premium on the reef. In the Mergui Archipelago in Burma (Myanmar) we see a fimbriated moray sharing its home with a variable coral crab (Carpilius convexus). Female crabs carry their eggs under their apron for a few months while the embryos develop. We witness the dramatic sight of a spendid round crab (Etisus splendidus) releasing her brood. As she pumps her lower body, thousands of tiny larvae are released and drift away in the current. At Thailand's Boonsung wreck, a crucifix crab (Charybdis (Charybdis) feriata) tries to appear as large and intimidating as possible by spreading its claws, before escaping into the shelter of the wreck, while at Western Rocky Island we see a tiny bull crab (Naxioides taurus) crawling across a gorgonian sea fan. The flat rock crab, Percnon planissimum, is a common sight in the Andaman Sea, as is the swimming crab, Charybdis sp., which we see defending its territory by fighting off a passing common decorator crab (Schizophrys aspera). This decorator crab has large claws and covers itself with other marine organisms such as stinging hydroids for camouflage and defence. The horrid elbow crab (Daldorfia horrida) becomes completely encrusted with growth, while the spider decorator crab (Camposcia retusa) covers itself with sponges which continue to grow while on the crab, and enable it to blend in with the reef. The sponge crab, Dromia dormia, carries a large spone with its rearmost legs. We see one fling itself off the edge of the reef in an attempt to escape our lights. Hermit crabs live inside empty snail shells in order to protect their soft abdomen. We see white-spotted hermit crabs (Dardanus megistos) in a variety of different shells. Anemone hermit crabs (Dardanus pedunculatus) carry live sea anemones on its shell as an extra defence. At Honeymoon Bay we a pair of them, perhaps in a dispute over territory.

Coral reef diving | Reef fish documentary | Most expensive corals in Pacific
 
01:29
Healthy coral reefs are among the most biologically diverse and economically valuable ecosystems on earth, providing valuable and vital ecosystem services. Coral ecosystems are a source of food for millions; protect coastlines from storms and erosion; provide habitat, spawning and nursery grounds for economically important fish species; provide jobs and income to local economies from fishing, recreation, and tourism; are a source of new medicines, and are hotspots of marine biodiversity. They also are of great cultural importance in many regions around the world, particularly Polynesia. Coral reef declines will have alarming consequences for approximately 500 million people who depend on coral reefs for food, coastal protection, building materials, and income from tourism. This includes 30 million who are virtually totally dependent on coral reefs for their livelihoods or for the land they live on (atolls). As part of the Micronesia Challenge, five nations and territories in the Micronesia region, including the US territories of Guam and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, have committed to conserve at least 30 percent of their near-shore marine resources by 2020. Caribbean nations and territories are following suit with a pledge to conserve at least 20 percent of their marine and coastal habitats by 2020. In the US, coral reefs are found in the waters of the Western Atlantic and Caribbean (Florida, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands) and the Pacific Islands (Hawaii, Guam, American Samoa, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands). They are also found along the coasts of over 100 other countries.
7 Facts about Mayotte

France gained colonial control over Mayotte in 1843. It is the most populous of the four Comoros Islands in the Indian Ocean off Mozambique in Africa. Mayotte chose to remain a French dependency rather than join the other Comoran islands in declaring independence in 1975. Comoros laid claim to Mayotte shortly after independence and continues to do so. In July 2000, 70% of voters opted to accept greater autonomy but to remain a part of France. In a 2009 referendum, voters approved accession to the status of department by a large majority. In fact, 95% voted in favor of departmental status. On March 31, 2011, Mayotte became an overseas department 2. Dzaoudzi is a commune in the French overseas department of Mayotte, in the Indian Ocean. The commune of Dzaoudzi (sometimes called Dzaoudzi-Labattoir), made up of the twin towns of Dzaoudzi and Labattoir, is located on the small island of Petite-Terre (or Pamanzi). It was previously the capital of Mayotte, but the capital was relocated in 1977 to Mamoudzou, on the island of Grande-Terre (Maore), the main island of Mayotte. 3. Mamoudzou is the capital of the French overseas region and department of Mayotte, in the Indian Ocean. Mamoudzou is the most populated commune (municipality) of Mayotte. It is located on Grande-Terre (or Mahoré), the main island of Mayotte. 4. Mayotte is surrounded by a typical tropical coral reef. It consists in a large outer barrier reef, enclosing one of the world's largest and deepest lagoons, followed by a fringing reef, interrupted by many mangroves. All Mayotte waters are ruled by a National marine Park, and many places are natural reserves. 5. Despite its domestic constitutional evolution from the status of an overseas collectivity to that of an overseas department, effectively becoming a full constituent territory within the French Republic, with regards to the European Union, Mayotte remained an 'Overseas country and territory' in association with the Union and not a constituent territory of the European Union in the same way as the other four overseas departments. However following a directive of the European Council in December 2013, Mayotte became an outermost region of the European Union on 1 January 2014. This successful agreement between the 27 member states follows a petition made by the French government for Mayotte to become an integral territory of the European Union. 6. The official currency in Mayotte is the euro. In 2015, the GDP of Mayotte at market exchange rates was €2.25 billion (US $2.5 bn). In that same year the GDP per capita of Mayotte at market exchange rates, not at PPP, was €9,477 (US $10,516), which was 14.5 times larger than the GDP per capita of the Comoros that year, but only 44% of the GDP per capita of Réunion and 27% of the GDP per capita of Metropolitan France. 7. Approximately 26% of the adult population, and five times as many women as men, report entering trance states in which they believe they are possessed by certain identifiable spirits (Djinns) who maintain stable and coherent identities from one possession to the next.

But, rich in resources and claimed by six countries, could they be the trigger for the world's next major conflict? "We call our Kalayaan Island group the submerged Saudi Arabia of the Philippines." Eugenio Bito-Onon is mayor of a seemingly innocuous islet municipality, home to just 150 residents. But with the region crosshatched by important shipping lanes, the undersea bed replete with oil and gas, and the marine life furnishing vast fishing grounds, the surrounding waters are simmering with tension. China, the Philippines, Vietnam, Malaysia, Taiwan and Brunei all lay claim to a portion of the territory, in a little-known diplomatic contest that for decades has regularly brought the area to the brink of war, and put it firmly off-limits to Western media. "China is doing a lot of things besides bullying our fishermen and small navies", explains the mayor as he points out a Chinese development on a small atoll known as 'Mischief Reef'. Here, the only way to secure the land is to occupy it. So as competing claimants continue to build, could this high-stakes game of island Monopoly erupt into a fully fledged conflict?

Ashmore and Cartier Islands Facts & Anthem & Flag accordion music played by Jan Oravec
 
02:04
The Territory of Ashmore and Cartier Islands is an uninhabited external territory of Australia consisting of four low-lying tropical islands in two separate reefs, and the 12 nautical mile territorial sea generated by the islands. The territory is located in the Indian Ocean situated on the edge of the continental shelf, about 320 km (199 mi) off the northwest coast of Australia and 144 km (89 mi) south of the Indonesian island of Rote. The territory is administered from Canberra by the Department of Infrastructure and Regional Development, which is also responsible for the administration of the territories of Christmas Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands, the Coral Sea Islands, Jervis Bay Territory and Norfolk Island. There is no economic activity in the Territory. As Ashmore Reef is the closest point of Australian territory to Indonesia, it was a popular target for people smugglers transporting asylum seekers to Australia despite its only wells being infected with cholera or contaminated and undrinkable.Once they had landed on Ashmore, asylum seekers could claim to have entered Australian territory and request to be processed as refugees. The use of Ashmore for this purpose created great notoriety during late 2001, when refugee arrivals became a major political issue in Australia. As Australia was not the country of first asylum for these "boat people", the Australian Government did not consider that it had a responsibility to accept them A number of things were done to discourage the practice such as attempting to have the people smugglers arrested in Indonesia; the so-called Pacific Solution of processing them in third countries; the boarding and forced turnaround of the boats by Australian military forces, and finally excising Ashmore and many other small islands from the Australian migration zone. Two boatloads of asylum seekers were each detained for several days in the lagoon at Ashmore after failed attempts by the Royal Australian Navy to turn them back to Indonesia in October 2001.

Weird Coral Colors - a Warning from Nature?  Doug Allan investigates
 
02:58
Filmed very recently in April 2015 off the Chagos Islands, British Indian Ocean Territory. A remarkable change caught on camera as coral heats up. Doug Allan is a world famous wildlife cameraman specialising in underwater work and explains why it is happening and what it means. Part of the Khaled bin Sultan Living Oceans Foundation mission to study the state of the world's coral: http://www.livingoceansfoundation.org To our knowledge this is exclusive - few have ever documented in the wild, and in such detail, the exact moment that corals begin bleaching and how they change colour - blues , pinks and yellows depending on species. These colours are thought to be pigments trying to protect the corals against temperature rises in the sea. Eventually, within a couple of weeks they will go white and die - but this is the moment caught on camera when they start to turn. Such images are really important because they document climate change hundreds of miles away from any other man made pollution - proving that it's affecting the whole planet. While we were there the water temperature was 30 centigrade in the water all the way down to 40 metres.

Nelson Island – The isolated oceanic reef
 
01:33
In 2006 coral scientists started a decade long monitoring project to document the changes to this reef in the Chagos Archipelago of the British Indian Ocean Territory. Nelson Island – The isolated oceanic reef Nelson Island forms part of the Great Chagos Bank, which is amongst the Atolls that lay claim to being “the largest Atoll in the world”. So large is the Great Chagos Bank, that many of its islands are in fact great distances from one another. Nelson Island is the most isolated of all of the islands in the Great Chagos Bank, and is thus highly influenced by the oceanic water masses moving through this northern part of the Atoll. Many of the islands of the Great Chagos Bank have been particularly badly affected by warming and subsequent bleaching events, and Nelson Island is a key example of this. It continues to host large fish populations and large schools of pelagic fish appear to use the reef as a feeding site, however the corals and the large table Acropora have essentially been all but killed off by the unusually warm sea-surface temperatures of the last decade. The shark populations of the Chagos Archipelago frequent seamounts and reefs like Nelson Island, which interrupt the deeper waters in areas of the Great Chagos Bank. Silver tip sharks are commonly seen cruising in open waters off the reef edge, whilst nurse sharks and grey reef sharks are more closely associated with the reef itself.

Bird Island, Seychelles
 
11:48
Bird Island is a small coral cay island, situated on the farthest northern end of the Seychelles. The beauty of its deserted beaches is beyond anybody’s imagination, but as the name implies, the island is paradise to a variety of innumerable birds, among which white fairy terns and black noddy terns keep flying around you all through the day. At the foot of many cedar trees, you will find nests of the beautiful white-tailed tropical birds, not at all scared of human beings peeping inside. But the most spectacular sight on this island is the colony of millions of sooty terns, covering the northern end open grass land during the nesting season from May to September, with their thundering chirping noises. On the ground roam the giant tortoises who will lift their heads for you to caress their chins. The beautiful lagoon on the east side is home to many sea turtles who seem very happy to welcome you to their world. The island’s beach accommodates hundreds of their nests each year. This video is a collection of souvenirs of my stay in May 2015 (except for the recording of the sooty tern colony which is from my previous stay in May 2013).
