Dolphin-watching tourism as an alternative or supplemental livelihood to marginalised artisanal fishers in Indonesia
This project explored whether dolphin-watching tourism can generate direct or indirect employment that provides a sustainable income equal or superior to a fisheries income. Running from April 2019 to September 2020, the project was funded by the Conservation Strategy Fund and James Cook University. The grant established Mustika as one of the 2019-2020 Indonesia Marine Fellows of the Conservation Strategy Fund.
The project was completed in late June 2020 and was presented to the local stakeholders via Google Meet on Friday 18 Sept 2020. Below are the infographic and the PDF of the PPT. The audio can be accessed here.
