4) GAUGIN'S LIFE AND CONTROVERSY

Tahitia

Post-impressionist painter Paul Gauguin prior to becoming the iconic artist lived in Isla Taboga in Panama. Virtually penniless, as he had left his wife and five children in Paris to try and make a name for himself as an artist. He stopped off at the Isthmus of Panama in 1887. While there he worked as forced laborer on the early, disastrous, French attempt to build the Panama Canal.

Paul Gauguin (1848–1903) is one of the true larger-than-life figures in art history. The key feature in his personal mythology is the constant yearning for an exotic paradise. He sought it in the bohemian arts community at Pont-Aven on the coast of Brittany and later on the South Seas island of Tahiti

marquesan-man-in-red-cape.

In his final years in the Marquesas, Gauguin grew increasingly critical of the colonial society. In particular, he believed that missionary work had disrupted the indigenous culture. He argued in his writings for the separation of the French state from the official French religion..

Gaugain

Gauguin undoubtedly exploited his position as a privileged Westerner to make the most of the sexual freedoms available to him. The artist “repeatedly entered into sexual relations with young girls, 'marrying' two of them and fathering children “

Gaugin

In early May, 1903, morally skittish, and weakened by drug-addiction and regular bouts with illness, Gauguin succumbed and died at the age of 54, on Atuona in the Marquesas, where he was subsequently buried.

6) LICENSE TO KILL 🏴‍☠️ CROWN OF THORNS

Crown-of-Thorns starfish

The crown-of-thorns COTS is a large starfish that preys upon hard, or stony, coral polyp. The crown-of-thorns starfish receives its name from venomous thorn-like spines that cover its upper surface, resembling the biblical crown of thorns. It is one of the largest starfish in the world.

It is perhaps most common around Australia, but is a nuisance and reef danger across the Pacific Ocean to the west coast of Central America. It occurs where coral reefs or hard coral communities occur in the region.

COTS

The first recorded outbreak of COTS was in the Ryukyu Islands off Japan in the 1950s

The first COTS outbreak in Australia was recorded in 1962 at Green Island. There has now been between 3-4 recorded outbreaks in Australia.

The Crown of Thorns has only a few predators, which include

  • triton’s trumpet, the white spotted puffer fish
  • the lined worm
  • the harlequin shrimp
  • two species of triggerfish (yellowmargin triggerfish and titan triggerfish)
  • The red emperor, spangled emperor and parrotfish are also known to eat juvenile COTS before the starfish grow their spikes.

COTS

COTS spawn on the Great Barrier Reef between October-March when water temperatures are at their highest. Female COTS release eggs into the water and nearby males release sperm, which then fertilise the eggs. Large female COTS can produce up to 65 million eggs per season.

COTS start off as larval and drift along on top of the water for weeks before settling at the bottom of the ocean floor. They are most vulnerable to predators as juveniles before their spiky spines have grown. At about one year of age they develop spines and begin to feed on coral.

Adult COTS can grow up to a 1 meter ( 3 feet ) in diameter and have up to 21 arms. If they shed an arm due to stress or injury they regrow within six months.

COTS spines are long and sharp and covered with an epidermis containing the venom ‘plancitoxin’. They are toxic to both marine life and humans.

COTS eat by everything their stomach through their mouth and then spreading it out over the surface of the coral using their tube feet. They then digest their food externally.

Adult COTS almost exclusively eat scleractinian. They can survive without feeding for up to nine months.

Predator removal: In the pelagic stage any filter feeder, including hard corals, will eat the starfish larvae. After reaching juvenile stage, fishes such as wrasse, damsels, and snappers will eat the starfishes. But once they become adults very few predators will eat be able to eat the toxic starfishes (except some triggerfish, pufferfish, and large snails like the triton trumpet.) Unfortunately all of theses species are targeted or removed as by-catch in the fishing industry.

HOW TO FIGHT AN INVADING FORCE OF COTS ?

Physical Removal

Experienced divers can use a wooden stick, PVC pipe, metal spear, boat hook or some other easily manipulated rod to remove the starfish off the reef. COTS have the ability to hide in small holes or crevices by using their tubefeet to suction onto the reef. This can make collecting COTS challenging, that is why using a rod or stick to pry the starfish off the reef is the best tool. The collected starfish can be placed in large canvas bags, rice/flour bags or mesh bags and brought to the boat or shore. The sharp poisonous spines of the starfish can penetrate the bag so please use caution. The process can be facilitated by locating a small boat near the divers, with bags of starfish sent to the surface using ropes or lift bags. In shallow water, starfish can be removed by snorkeling, but SCUBA is more effective.

Close UP

Chemical Injection

Citric Acid Injections: An Accessible and Efficient Method for Controlling Outbreaks of the Crown-of-Thorns Starfish

The most common and environmentally safe chemical used currently is oxgall and Bile Salts No.3, as well as vinegar. However more toxic chemicals such as bleach, copper sulphate, sodium bisulphate have been used in the past. Chemicals are held in a sealed container connected to an injection gun with a high pressured hose. The poison is injected with a needle or a continuous injection system at the base of the starfish arms.

This method is more efficient than manual collection of starfish, however; some chemicals are toxic to the environment and other organisms.

Cook Islands 3 dollar bill 

Although
the Cook Islands operates on the New Zealand dollar, there is still
some Cook Islands dolalrs in circulation that is equal in value to NZD.

The
$3 note which is more of a collectors or novelty item. These can be
picked up from the Rarotonga Philatelic Bureau or given as change when
paying departure tax.  

The official Cook Islands currency is the New Zealand dollar.  

 In
terms of cost of living in the Cook Islands, its price point is fairly
middle range in that it is a little more expensive than Fiji but a lot
less than French Polynesia and Tahiti. Part of the Cook Islands economy
is the VAT or Value Added Tax. Charged at 12.5% of the price, the tax is
added at the point of sale to almost everything however refunds are
available for tourists upon exiting the country.

Vava'u

Aerial view of a portion of the Vava'u Archipelago   in northern Tonga 

Don
Francisco Mourelle de la Rúa, commanding the Spanish frigate Princesa,
was the first European to come to Vavaʻu, which he did on 4 March 1781.
He charted Vavaʻu as Martín de Mayorga, naming it after the man who was
the Viceroy of New Spain at that time.  Captain James Cook had
known about the islands a decade earlier, but the people in Haʻapai had
told him it would be no good for him to go there. they told him there
was no harbour. ( THIS WAS A LIE ) They may have told him this to
dissuade him from going there; but Cook heeded their advice.

As
it turned out, Mourelle found excellent anchoring, in Vavaʻu, which he
desperately needed, because he had failed to find a harbour at the last
two places he had tried to land, Fonualei (Bitterness island) and Late.
He gave the harbour at Vavaʻu the name Port of Refuge, although his original port of refuge had been the bay on the west coast of the main island, near Longomapu.

Twelve
years later, in 1793, Alessandro Malaspina visited the area for a
month, following up on Mourelle’s investigations, and formally claiming
the islands for Spain.
