    Aerial Photo and film.Salt ponds Bonaire

    For all you future projects, Bonaire Vision Films will include aerial footage where necessary.
    Bonaire is a small island with an international airport, so the use of drones is very restricted.
    Bonaire is also the home of many bird species and has 2 main bird sanctuaries where is it prohibited to use drones.

     The use of aerial footage is also useful for research and science.
    The system will indicate altitude and distance and record High Definition footage which will record in detail subjects or find arias of natural value.
    The use of a drone can help with maintenance of windgenerators, powerlines or anything that is not accessible.Just ask for a quote and find out the immense posibilities.

    Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire

    Sea turtles help maintain the health of seagrass beds and coral reefs. As they graze on these marine plants, they prevent them from becoming overgrown and unhealthy, which in turn helps to maintain the entire ecosystem. 2. Sea turtles also help to distribute nutrients across different parts of the ocean as they migrate from one area to another. This can benefit other species in the ecosystem, including scavengers and predators. 3. Sea turtles are important predators in their own right, preying on a variety of marine invertebrates, fish and jellyfish. This helps to control the populations of these animals and prevents them from overgrazing or damaging other parts of the ecosystem. In summary, sea turtles are a crucial part of the marine ecosystem and their presence is essential for the health and well beingof many other species.

     

  • International Productions

    It all began on Sipadan Island on the North East coast of Borneoimages
    in 1995 when I worked as a dive instructor and Dive Guide
    It was Jack Cousteau who discovered an 18m deep entrance to a turtle cave filled with turtle skeletons.
    It was there that I began filming divers on their turtle tomb explorations.
    Twenty years later what started as Scuba Vision Films has now become as much terrestrial.
    Now under the new name Bonaire Vision Films & Photo International.

    HOW WORLDS STRONGEST APEX PREDATOR STRUGGLE FOR SURVIVALmsflogo

    A landmark agreement to protect shark species threatened with extinction was signed by Mister Johnson Toribiong the president of Palau in 2009.
    This marks Palau as the first nation in the world to grand full protection status to shark populations.
    On direct request by the President, The Micronesian Shark Foundation was granted full access to conduct research to analyze the effect of human influence on the shark population in Palauan territory.
    In June 2012 the Micronesian Shark Foundation embarked on A scientific expedition it is the first of its kind to the Southern Boundaries to Palauan territory, this expedition is only possible because of the Bohemian Foundation donations.

    Palau is an independent nation since 1994, the Republic of Palau was formerly a United Nations Trust Territory administered by the U.S. following WWII. Known today for its pristine environment and astounding biodiversity, Palau is considered to be among the world's top dive destinations.

    Our most southern destination is named Hellen's reef it is a largely submerged coral reef and contains a small island in its northern section. Helen is a sandy, atoll island and therefore is flat and rises only a few feet above sea level.
    As our excitement grows a rude awakening, it does not take long for the team to realize the devastating destruction of illegal fishing and long lining.

    They were 4 Scientist, went out on a 2 week voyage, trying to deployment satellite tags and acoustic tags on sharks on the far (most) Southern corner of Palawan waters at Helens reef, and they failed miserably!DVDCover

    They explored reefs in the pacific ocean and they could not find one adult shark of any species on any of these reefs, and these are pristine reefs, they are the places we hold up, these are places we say its all OK.
    With half of the world's oceanic sharks at risk of extinction, 100 million sharks are killed each year around the world.
    230 times they went out diving and manta towing covering an area of 400 Hectare(4 sq KM,1.5 sq mill) and they when fishing, and on all 3 counts they did not see any adult sharks, the data was consistent over all 3 sampling techniques.
    Analyzing this data next to one of the rare healthy fish populated reefs confirms again the need to protect the broad scale of biodiversity, starting with the shark as the Apex predator.
