"Vezo" a short film by Tod Lending

I wanted to share this wonderful little video with Andaman Sea readers. Overfishing and lack of management characterize fisheries in the tropics. 

Some 200 million people depend directly on coral reefs and a further 300 million people will suffer if they are lost.

"Vezo" by Tod Lending highlights the problem as a 9 year old girl tells about how her family and village turned away from near starvation after their village adopted sustainable practices.

With the help of the National University of Malaysia, I am getting this video translated and it will be shown in Langkawi schools. Others can do the same. The oceans need care and good management.
