Times are changing in the Kikori. Human populations are increasing, people have moved their settlements closer to the river, modern technologies are changing hunting practices, and new found wealth from industry are changing the impact on local resources. Arthur and his team are bringing science to the table to assist the Kikori community to better formulate and meet its goals for sustainability of an imporant food resource and flagship species, the pignosed turtle, Carettochelys nsculpta.
