Steve Taylor’s video documentaries of Africa’s pressing people and environmental issues are now turning to the sea. Blue in Focus is a new documentary series on our planet’s rapidly disappearing marine biodiversity and will take two years to complete.
This first episode is looking at the pressures facing East Africa’s fishermen and coastal ecosystems. Travelling from northern Mozambique through Tanzania to Kenya, Steve has collected compelling footage that tells the story of growing pressure on the sea – from fishing, population growth and industrialization. See these promotion shorts as he travels next to SE Asia and Hong Kong to see what is happening at the destinations for for fish bought in the markets in East Africa.
CORDIO is teaming up with Steve and Green Heart Films to support the documentary as a scientific advisor and help with the storyline … and to promote the education and awreness that video can bring to change how we deal with our seas.
