Local fishers ask divers for help protecting coral reefs

Eduard and his family have been protecting the coral reefs and fisheries around their tiny volcanic island home in the Banda Sea for generations. A little hand painted wooden sign on prohibits bom fishing and shark finning. Eduard’s community welcomes divers and they ask for help stopping bom fishing and shark finning by fishers from Seram and other islands to the north. Visiting dive boats chase them away.
