Guardians of the Pacific
We helped the Pacific Community (SPC) create this hugely popular series about community fishers who are helping to increase the adoption of sustainable fishing practices across the Pacific Islands region. The entertaining and educational series is being shared via local television stations, social media platforms, and outreach events to help raise awareness of sustainable fisheries practices. On social media alone the series has had more than half a million views across the region.
