Shrimp for sale at the Nouimbi River crossing. I'm a neophyte at identifying even high level taxon groupings for shrimp. Is this specimen in the Stenopodidea b/c the third pereiopod (walking leg) is so enlarged?

I am also tagging this observation as captive/cultivated b/c I'm not certain whether the shrimp was harvested near the location where the observation was made. I assume that these shrimp came from brackish waters with mangroves (there are traps set right at the crossing), but not certain.

Description

Obscured view. Two elephants munching, 10-40 meters off of river edge. We were in a motorized boat, so they heard our approach, but did not flee -- a good sign of little to modest poaching pressure. This a regular boat route for tourists. We had stopped to see dragonflies (of course!), but the guide found them after we had turned off the motor.

Description

Tens of dead turtles wash up on shore every year -- some natural mx, some mx due to artisinal fisheries that may not target marine turtles but do harvest the meat opportunistically, and some mx due to illegal offshore trawlers who do not harvest the meat but cut off a flipper (or so) to free it from the net and toss it back to the ocean. This turtle was dead too long to make a guess at what caused its death. The WCS project onsite has a catch and release program, exchanging net materials for release of live turtles, with artisinal fishermen that seems successful. The program is modeled off a larger scale program run by the NGO, Renatura, who work on beaches south of the park: http://www.renatura.org/
