Wavescape - Surfing in South Africa

Mon, 10 April 2017

See how this Chinese fishing vessel captain tries to hide his illegal catch of shark fins as Greenpeace busts several vessels during a joint surveillance sting off West Africa. 

Africa’s west coast has some of the most fertile and most exploited waters in the world. West African governments must urgently take responsibility and work together to manage both foreign and local fishing activities in their waters before it’s too late!

If you agree, then make some noise on your FacebookTwitter and Instagram pages, let’s defend our oceans today for future generations. And if you haven't yet, please join the action online - petition West African governments to defend our oceans.
