In the Coral Sea east of Queensland and south of the Solomons lie many plateaus of coral that rise to the surface and are capped with coral islands. They are so remote and rarely visited, and yet they are beautiful islands abundant with nesting birds and turtles. The difference between these islands and their counterparts on the Great Barrier Reef, is that they sparkle wit greater color and contrast. The backdrop to the white plumage of the nesting birds is of green foliage, a pure white beach, and a blue lagoon of amazing clarity. Scuba divers have voted the Coral Sea the best dive location in the world. The visibility is a standard 50 meters or better. That’s exceptional! All these attributes draw Ben Cropp to these coral isles, in the month of November when the seas are calm, cyclones still absent, and the islands come alive with nesting birds and turtles. All this activity draws the predators. Sharks patrol the beach, circling the cay over and over in the hope of scavenging a helpless chick. Such is the visibility that Ben can wait with underwater camera on the beach, see a shark coming 50 metres away and duck under the water and view the oncoming shark that seemingly is right there in front of him. The green turtles mate in the coral lagoon and draw the tiger sharks in. The females are exhausted from laying at night and mating in the day, and are easy prey. The males are more alert and less likely to be eaten. Ben and his team scuba dive these crystal waters with wonderful coral gardens, big fish, and many sharks, that go into a feeding frenzy when food is available. Down in this silent world, its difficult to imagine that back in 1942, this area exploded in the deafening roar of the Battle of the Coral Sea, a psychological turning point in the Pacific war. It has always been a harsh world for the island wildlife in this beautiful tropical setting. The Coral Sea spawns cyclones that devastate nesting birds. Early sailing ships struck the jagged rampart and left their bones on the coral reef. Ben Cropp and his family explore this wonderful area in his vessel Freedom. It’s a voyage of discovery and adventure to these emerald isles in a rainbow sea. Aired Internationally: 2009 [email protected]

We all know Australia is “girt by sea” … but if you want to be precise, it’s actually more girt by oceans. Watch more from the Did You Know? series ►► https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLn2RjxYNpcawct77myxG-2JGptju1-Hx0 The planet is about 70% water — and Australians should know that better than most. But there are some interesting rules for how bodies of water are named. What makes an ocean, and what defines a sea? What's the different between a gulf and a bay? There are widely agreed upon naming conventions, but there are also plenty of interesting exceptions around the world.

Work took me out to South Goulburn Island today. The Goulburn Islands are a group of small islands and islets in the Arafura Sea off the coast of Arnhem Land in Northern Territory of Australia. The video shows the trip from Jabiru in Central Kakadu National Park, across Arnhem land and then on to Warruwi on South Goulburn. The wet season hasn't really started yet, but when it does a lot of that land turns to water.

An Island Wilderness Retreat. Nestling into the sand dunes on the north tip of Bremer Island, between two pristine beaches and rocky headlands, Banubanu is part of a greater arena of beautiful offshore islands in the Arafura Sea. It has so much for nature lovers, fishermen and those who just want to chill out and relax. The retreat and its fittings are made from local materials, some recovered from the island's beaches, to keep a low impact on the surroundings. Guests are accommodated comfortably with eco friendly facilities that ensure Banubanu and the surrounding area remain in a pristine state. Many of Banubanu's guests agree that the very best experience comes from being able to relax in an ultra remote location. There is no internet or mobile phone coverage, unless you climb up the highest sand dune to get a signal. Banubanu grants you peace and quiet to think things over.

Footage commences north of Hope Inlet tracking along the eastern shores of the Beagle Gulf towards Gunn Point. From there our track takes us over the Vernon Islands in the Clarence Strait to Cape Gambier, the southern most point of Melville Island. To avoid heavy tropical downpours we track along the southern coast of Melville Island towards Muranapi Point. Finding a gap between the storms we then cross tidal salt flats and head to Curtis Haven. The sand spit covered in Casuarina trees marks the entrance to Curtis Haven from the inner reaches of Snake Bay. The community of Milikapiti can be seen on the opposite shore. The video concludes at the entrance to Snake Bay in the Arafura Sea approximately 180 nautical miles south of Pulau Selaru in the Banda Sea.

New Guinea is an island in the north of the continent of Sahul, also known as Greater Australia. It is isolated by the Arafura Sea to the west and the Torres Strait and Coral Sea to the east. Sometimes considered to be the easternmost island of the Malay archipelago, it lies north of Australia's Top End, Gulf of Carpentaria and Cape York peninsula, and west of the Bismarck Archipelago and the Solomon Islands Archipelago. The shape of New Guinea is often compared to that of a bird of paradise, and this results in the usual names for the two extremes of the island: the Bird's Head Peninsula in the northwest (Vogelkop in Dutch, Kepala Burung in Indonesian; also known as the Doberai Peninsula), and the Bird's Tail Peninsula in the southeast (also known as the Papuan Peninsula). A spine of east–west mountains, the New Guinea Highlands, dominates the geography of New Guinea, stretching over 1,600 km (1,000 mi) from the 'head' to the 'tail' of the island. The western half of the island of New Guinea contains the highest mountains in Oceania, rising up to 4,884 m (16,024 ft) high, and ensuring a steady supply of rain from the equatorial atmosphere. The tree line is around 4,000 m (13,100 ft) elevation and the tallest peaks contain permanent equatorial glaciers—which have been retreating since at least 1936. Various other smaller mountain ranges occur both north and west of the central ranges. Except in high elevations, most areas possess a warm humid climate throughout the year, with some seasonal variation associated with the northeast monsoon season.

21~New Visitors~Mistletoebird~Share & Enjoy Nature~Bird Watching Videos Bird Watching in My Backyard.. Another lovely new visitor has arrived in my backyard..The Mistletoebird. Sorry for him being out of focus. I tried a couple of times to focus on him but just couldn’t due to the branches. I wanted some footage so I filmed anyway.. I still wanted to share this new visitor. ************************************************* Info: Wikipedia The Mistletoebird is a small, 9–10 cm long and 7.5–11 g weight and is also known as the Mistletoe Flowerpecker. It is a species of Flowerpecker native to most of Australia and also to the eastern Maluku Islands of Indonesia in the Arafura Sea between Australia and New Guinea. The Mistletoebird eats mainly the berries of the parasitic Mistletoe and is a vector for the spread of the mistletoe's seeds, through its digestive system. Breeding Mistletoebirds conduct elaborate courtship and nuptial displays where, with a horizontal body, the male sways from side to side fluttering its wings, flicking its tail and displaying flashes of red. The female flies to a nearby branch where she flutters her wings. The male flies to her, mates and immediately they depart together. Mistletoebird pairs nest solitarily and raise up to 3 broods per season. The breeding season is from August to April depending where in Australia, but usually coincides with the fruiting of mistletoe. The nest is built by the female, but accompanied by the male who assists very occasionally. Incubation is by the female but it has been recorded that males do sit the nest while the female is away. She will lay a clutch of three or four white eggs, 17 mm x 11 mm oval in shape. Incubation period is between 10–12 days and the young remain in the nest for approximately 15 days. The fledglings are fed by both parents but mainly the female. Newly hatched birds are initially fed arthropods after which mistletoe berry pulp is then gradually introduced into their diet. After about two weeks, when they are ready to fledge, the mistletoe berry pulp comprises 80% of food intake of the young Mistletoebird. Both parents remove the fecal sacs left by the young in the nest. ********************************************* Filmed: 11th January, 2018 Camera: Nikon Coolpix P900 ********************************* It is a pleasure to be able to share my birding videos with you.

DEVELOPMENT PEARL CULTIVATION IN INDONESIA indonesia south sea pearls cultivation Indonesia south sea pearls cultivation The trial tests of pearl culture in Indonesia started in Buton, Southeast Sulawesi as from 1921 by a group of Japanese experts led by Dr. M. Fujita, a leading researcher in pearl cultivation. The venture was financed by the Mitsubishi Corporation from Japan. The test culture was using the Golden Pearl Oyster (Pinctada Maxima Jameson) collected from the Arafura Sea, specifically around the Aru Islands Group. After seven years of trial and error, the test culture finally succeeded in producing rounded pearls with attractive colors and luster. Thereafter, the sponsor, Mitsubishi Corporation, established the South Sea Pearl Corp. Ltd. (Nanyo Shinju Kabushiki Kaisha) which was operating the pearl farming business. The operation ended in 1941 due to the World War II. In 1958, the trial test activities for pearl culture were resumed by Indonesian researchers and experts from the Indonesian Center for Marine Fishery. The efforts were then continued by the Indonesian Research Center for Marine Fishery as from 1962. The trial tests for pearl culture of Pinctada Margaritifera were conducted in the Gulf of Jakarta and in Semayang Island, Riau Islands Group. The Research Center also tested the pearl culture of Pinctada Lentiginosa in the Kalabahi Gulf, Alor, East Nusa Tenggara. The tests did not come out as expected. As from 1960, pearl culture activities were started using wild Pinctada Maxima oysters collected from their natural habitat. From 1990s onwards, pearl farming started using adult oysters reared from hatcheries. visit : Lombok Pearls http://missjoaquim.com http://missjoaquim.com/pembicarainternetmarketingpakarseo/ Info untuk Pembicara Internet Marketing Kursus SEO Terbaru - Hubungi WhatsApp +6287865026222

Indonesia trip : Tanimbar Islands, also called Timur Laut, are a group of about 65 islands in the Maluku province. 12 The Tanimbar Islands, also called Timur Laut, are a group of about 65 islands in the Maluku province of Indonesia, including Fordata, Larat, Maru, Molu, Nuswotar, Selaru, Selu, Seira, Wotap, Wuliaru and Yamdena. The Indonesian phrase timur laut means 'northeast'. Geography Geographically, the northeast islands are still part of the Lesser Sunda Islands. The Aru Islands and Kai Islands lie to the northeast, and Babar Island and Timor lie to the west. The islands separate the Banda Sea and the Arafura Sea. The total land area of the Islands is 5440 km² (2100 sq mi). The largest of the group is Yamdena. Yamdena Island has a range of thickly forested hills along its eastern coast, while its western coast is lower. Saumlaki is the chief town, located on the south end of Yamdena. Other islands include Larat, Selaru, and Wuliaru. The population was 105,394 at the 2010 Census, of whom about 73% are Christian, and the remainder Muslim or unknown. The tiny island of Tanimbarkei is not part of Tanimbar, but of the Kai Islands and inhabited by less than 1000 very traditional people. The Tanimbar Islands are part of the Banda Sea Islands moist deciduous forests ecoregion. History In modern history, the Tanimbar islands (as the Aru Islands) were mentioned in the 16th century maps of Lázaro Luís (1563), Bartolomeu Velho (c. 1560), Sebastião Lopes (1565), also in the 1594 map of the East Indies entitled Insulce Molucoe, by the Dutch cartographer Petrus Plancius, and in the map of Nova Guinea of 1600 (based on Portuguese sources). The Tanimbar Islands were sighted and possibly visited by Portuguese navigators, such as Martim Afonso de Melo Jusarte around 1522-1525, who traveled around the archipelagos of Aru (with the reference ["Here wintered Martin Afonso de Melo"]) and Tanimbar, and possibly Gomes de Sequeira in 1526. The Tanimbar Islands were part of the Dutch East Indies. During World War II the Dutch sent a detachment of 13 men to the town of Saumlaki in the Tanimbar Islands in July 1942. Japanese ships entered the bay at Saumlaki on 30 July and small boats were used to get to the jetty. The Japanese filed in ranks on the jetty and wanted to march in close order into Saumlaki. The garrison opened fire at close range with their two light machine guns. The Japanese retreated to their boats leaving several dead on the jetty. On 31 July an Australian contingent arriving at the jetty at Saumlaki in order to support the Dutch garrison was fired on from the shore and the commander on board was killed. The Australians returned to Darwin. Next the garrison came under naval gunfire which inflicted some casualties, followed by a second attack on a wider front. Seven survivors withdrew and boarded a sailing ship and escaped to Australia.

For total relaxation and immersion in the best our blue planet has to offer, this place is hard to beat. There are no pilot guides showing you where to anchor (OK, there are a couple of pages in Andy Scott's "Cruising Guide to Indonesia", which lists about 1% of all the anchorages there). Charts are inaccurate and out of date, challenging you to use all your skills as a navigator and sailor - the most accurate source of information was Google Earth! We found villages, towns and islands not named on any map. To give you more information, we have started to add positions to our episodes, so if it interests you, please scroll down for the full lat and long.

About the Darwin to Ambon Race. Yachts follow the rhumb line through the Arafura Sea to the Indonesian island of Sermata which peaks at 392 metres and lies east of Timor Leste. Next it's the depths of the Banda Sea, passing close to the Island of Damar which peaks at 868 metres, and then on to Ambon. Ambon lies approx 355º T from Darwin. Yachts usually enjoy fresh south-easterly winds until they enter Ambon Harbour. The hills around Ambon can rein the breezes to a zephyr -- a half a knot ebbing tide can then become a major obstacle to reaching the finishing line.

To the north, the territory is bordered by the Timor Sea, the Arafura Sea and the Gulf of Carpentaria, including Western New Guinea and other Indonesian islands. Despite its large area of 1,349,129 square kilometres, it is sparsely populated, only 244,000 people live there. Darwin is the capital city of the Northern Territory of Australia. Situated on the Timor Sea, Darwin is the largest city in the Northern Territory, with a population of 145,916. It is the smallest and most northerly of the Australian capital cities, and acts as the Top End's regional centre. The Northern Territory is home to two spectacular natural rock formations, Uluru (Ayers Rock) and Kata Tjuta (The Olgas), which are sacred to the local Aboriginal peoples and which have become major tourist attractions.

"Australia", sometimes known in technical contexts by the names "Sahul", "Australinea" or "Meganesia", to distinguish it from the Australian mainland, is a continent comprising mainland Australia, Tasmania, New Guinea, Seram, possibly Timor, and neighbouring islands. It is the smallest of the seven traditional continents in the English conception. The continent lies on a continental shelf overlain by shallow seas which divide it into several landmasses—the Arafura Sea and Torres Strait between mainland Australia and New Guinea, and Bass Strait between mainland Australia and Tasmania. When sea levels were lower during the Pleistocene ice age, including the Last Glacial Maximum about 18,000 BC, they were connected by dry land. During the past ten thousand years, rising sea levels overflowed the lowlands and separated the continent into today's low-lying arid to semi-arid mainland and the two mountainous islands of New Guinea and Tasmania. Geologically, a continent extends to the edge of its continental shelf, so the now-separate islands are considered part of the continent. Due to the spread of animals, fungi and plants across the single Pleistocene landmass the separate lands have a related biota. New Zealand is not part of the continent of Australia, but of the separate, submerged continent of Zealandia. New Zealand and Australia are both part of the wider regions known as Australasia and Oceania. The term Oceania is often used to denote the region encompassing the Australian continent and various islands in the Pacific Ocean that are not included in the seven-continent model.

Rainforest in suburbia | gondwana rainforests - Australia Thunder and Rain Relaxing Sounds;https://youtu.be/GN3rXlEuH68 SUBSCRIBE;https://www.youtube.com/c/SteveMack With a total land area of 8.56 million square kilometres (3,310,000 sq mi), the Australian continent is the smallest and lowest-lying human-inhabited continent on Earth. The continental shelf connecting the islands, half of which is less than 50 metres (160 ft) deep, covers some 2.5 million square kilometres (970,000 sq mi), including the Sahul Shelf and Bass Strait. As the country of Australia is mostly on a single landmass, and comprises most of the continent, it is sometimes informally referred to as an island continent, surrounded by oceans. The Sahul continent Archaeological terminology for this region has changed repeatedly. Prior to the 1970s, the single Pleistocene landmass was called Australasia, derived from the Latin australis, meaning "southern", although this word is most often used for a wider region that includes lands like New Zealand that are not on the same continental shelf. In the early 1970s, the term Greater Australia was introduced for the Pleistocene continent. Then at a 1975 conference and consequent publication, the name Sahul was extended from its previous use for just the Sahul Shelf to cover the continent. In 1984, W. Filewood suggested the name Meganesia, meaning "great island" or "great island-group", for both the Pleistocene continent and the present-day lands, and this name has been widely accepted by biologists. Others have used Meganesia with different meanings: travel writer Paul Theroux included New Zealand in his definition and others have used it for Australia, New Zealand and Hawaii. Another biologist, Richard Dawkins, coined the name Australinea in 2004. Australia-New Guinea has also been used. In paleogeography, Gondwana (pronunciation: /ɡɒndˈwɑːnə/), also Gondwanaland, is the name given to an ancient supercontinent. It is believed to have sutured between about 570 and 510 million years ago (Mya), joining East Gondwana to West Gondwana. Gondwana formed prior to Pangaea, but later became part of it.

The region comprises most of the islands immediately north and northeast of Australia. The name Melanesia (from Greek: μέλας black; νῆσος, islands) was first used by Jules Dumont d'Urville in 1832 to denote an ethnic and geographical grouping of islands distinct from Polynesia and Micronesia. The term Melanesia can be used in either an anthropological or a geographical context. In the former, the term refers to one of the three regions of Oceania whose pre-colonial population generally belongs to one ethno-cultural family as a result of centuries of maritime migrations. The geographic conception of Melanesia is used as a reference to the area where political, ethnic, and linguistic distinctions are not relevant. The term is also present in geopolitics, where the Melanesian Spearhead Group Preferential Trade Agreement is a regional trade treaty involving the states of Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and Fiji. People The original inhabitants of the group of islands now named Melanesia were likely the ancestors of the present-day Papuan-speaking people. They appear to have occupied these islands as far east as the main islands in the Solomon Islands, including Makira and possibly the smaller islands farther to the east. It was particularly along the north coast of New Guinea and in the islands north and east of New Guinea that the Austronesian people came into contact with these preexisting populations of Papuan-speaking peoples, probably around 4,000 years ago. There was probably a long period of interaction that resulted in many complex changes in genetics, languages, and culture. It is possible that from this area a very small group of people (speaking an Austronesian language) departed to the east to become the forebears of the Polynesian people. This finding is, however, contradicted by a study published by Temple University finding that Polynesians and Micronesians have little genetic relation to Melanesians; instead, they found significant distinctions between groups living within the Melanesian islands. Genome scans show Polynesians have little genetic relationship to Melanesians.

It is located in the southwestern Pacific Ocean, in a region defined since the early 19th century as Melanesia. The capital is Port Moresby.
