Blast fisherman off the coast of Tanzania use homemade bombs to catch fish. Experts say one blast can kill all living organisms within a 20-meters radius. Coral reefs that teemed with life are reduced to rubble.
We report on blast fishing in Tanzania, recycling in Nigeria and Kenya, and an island sanctuary in Uganda giving orphaned chimps a second chance. Plus, Benin’s secret to sustainable animal husbandry.
Holiday idyll or crime scene? In Tanzania, dynamite fishers toss up to 50 bombs a day into the coral reefs - using a technique that, in theory, is outlawed. A task force is hoping to put an end to the dangerous practice.
In this episode: Cleaning up Argentina's dirtiest river, environmental concerns over salmon farming in Scotland, dynamite fishing threatens Tanzania's coral reefs - and the volunteers who help injured turtles in Greece.
