Conservationist Works to Educate About Destructive Fishing Practices

Destructive fishing practices are harming the ocean — and this conversationist is working to educate the world about it.

Jahawi Bertolli is a National Geographic Explorer, filmmaker, photographer, and music producer from Kenya.

His film ‘Bahari Yetu’ documents Swahili fishermen who’ve fished the waters for generations. The fishermen speak about what fishing in the area used to be like and what it’s like now.

The seas surrounding Kenya are biodiverse, but they’re overfished by commercial fishers, which is doing immense harm to the biodiversity.

National Geographic Society supports Explorers like Jahawi to protect our ocean for future generations.
