Abstract: Work in the CHAOS (Coupled Human and Aquatic Organism Systems) lab is increasingly focusing on the ways human populations and natural systems develop and sustain each other. However sometimes these relationships are contested. In this talk I will outline three ongoing projects in the lab, one looking at the relationship among international conservation NGOs and Indigenous communities living in mangrove forests in Viti Levu (Fiji), one looking at stakeholders’ perceptions of the value of oysters in Long Island (New York), and one, a new class focusing on the methods and models of conservation that have been carried out in the island of Vieques, (Puerto Rico). With these three examples I hope to tell a story of how local coastal communities exist, and thrive, on the shores of a vibrant ocean.
