of seaweed algae seedlings are cultivated all year round and the company's laboratories in time time. here tests are carried out on different types of algae that might be good to cultivate and the future. the company also works with universities to find possible environmental uses for seaweed and unlock its full potential it has several benefits of further for them and they are lent very cultivated capture c o 2. big advantage and we also see that around north sea farm and a lot of fish so it's kind of a nursery you for like. fish and other and wealth in the tribe in the forest. increases the wildlife. seaweed a budding do industry in europe. they roll around

11:38 pm
in the past he had to keep his head above water with badly paid work sometimes as a fisherman. sometimes as a sailor now he can afford to concentrate on seaweed farming alone his take home pay is up to 6 times higher now. than then and then yeah he said it's funny is full of promise that we hope it will enable us to pay for the best possible education for our children. maybe but i guess much more profitable than working as a fisherman specializing in aquaculture. we hope that sea we will always florida share and that we can maintain its quality. nor in your no hope so to at any rate she already needs another 1000 suppliers and 2020 farmers like. after all the demand for her plastic free packaging is they are primarily from food and cosmetics distributors she needs to ramp up production from $100.00 to $8000.00

11:42 pm
more than 400000 that's a decline of more than 95 percent. in botswana however there are too many elephants thanks to strict conservation measures the elephant population there has increased rapidly in recent years. among the star attractions and job a national park on the many elephants antelopes. and hippos roaming free. but swan has the world's highest elephant population somewhere between 13160000. tourists flock to marvel at the. riata bagman has been coming here with her husband for many years. but comes with this time especially. because my family are here to my niece and my 2 grandchildren we really wanted to show them the africa we know and love where you can be among all these animals and so close to
11:43 pm
them on the zoom that's not there leaving it up that's how tourists experience the elephants. and this is how local people experience them. park ranger horsey myra is out on patrol. with him. making her. suddenly another elephant appears between the houses in the town of cassani at the edge of the park. he tells us they can injure people attack them. especially if they're with a young. boy. elephants wonder through residential areas and farms this often leads to conflict between humans and animals . than you are just one you saw jeremiah says he
11:44 pm
always keeps a gun loaded he has a farm outside cassani i showed an elephant the last. 28 days. it was in the field here. during the day i dared to skate if used then those who are there said let me shoot it now ok and elephant is that is not nice is not nice to kill it but there for the sake of celebrity if that. is all that kills me. is war when is all we shoot. it's a fight for survival jeremiah says the elephants are always on his heels destroying his crops. the was there come there every day today they're going to get to this piece linda knight they come again and continue until the whole field is
11:45 pm
done. elephants have trampled his fences including the electric ones. and jeremiah doesn't have the money to repair them. none of my life is being the quality that did it 30000 by elephants what i mean is they're making people poor they're making people poor. no i'm poor. my feeling is i think conning should be done what i feel about all of it that's not too many. they need to be to do with. the government hasn't organized any call's controversially last year lifted a ban on elephant hunting that had been imposed 5 years earlier but now permits the killing of 400 pm promising
11:46 pm
a field day for sports hunters the government says the hunting should be allowed specifically in areas where elephants human conflicts are most common or what elephants we have learnt over time about elephants is that when the north is the danger they will not go to those areas and we use the controlled hunting to achieve that not to reduce numbers but to create better. so that people can continue about life in the woods i mean. it's been estimated that the elephant population will continue to grow significantly even if $400.00 a kill each year. trophy hunting is widely despised in europe for example but can it actually fulfil a useful function. some conservationists think it can. the impact will be positive because botswana is absolutely committed to having any resources that it gets from. to go to the communities rural
11:47 pm
botswanans live with 150000 elephants and they have not been receiving any benefits whatsoever so a couple of animals that are sport hunted can go a very long way to mitigate the kind of negative impacts including the loss of human life that rural botswanans are facing on a daily basis. man a fish was trampled to death last year while on his way home in cousin a. his sister dorcas sums up the findings of the police investigation. back. then. so. this does and you had to be and. so they pulled him she tells us they used to be fewer elephants in the area and they were less aggressive. in the past
11:48 pm
there were just and you present elephant just you didn't it sometimes without even seeing it but no idea is the only charge without even a person provoking them anyhow she says the aggression may well mean the elephants are feeling stressed the question remains if the elephant population continues to rise and the human population grows as well i'm happy encounters will probably continue to occur and a sustainable solution will still need to be found. in our global ideas series we head to the pacific ocean it's home to many species of sea turtle our reporter claire richardson went to the on of an island's part of the solomon islands north of australia she met some activists who are working to protect the turtles.
11:49 pm
the solomon islands look like paradise on earth the region here in the south pacific is home to rich marry me biodiversity. but it's a challenging environment for the critically endangered hawksbill sea turtles that nest here. female turtles lay roughly $1000.00 eggs each season. only one in a 1000 will make it to adult hood. that chances are made by hunting and the legal trading. research estimate that some 10000. tools are harvested each year. that's pushed hawksbill sea tug tools to the brink of extinction. but the creatures who make it to this particular peak that's how.
11:50 pm
these women are on a mission to save the tassels in 2016 they formed a group which brings together communities from 3 islands to protect the tools from hunting. the 3 for me anything they have different from a background so having to give also. have the opportunity for them to embrace it challenge and put the project they gave that uniting them together for conservation . there on my way to the owner forms a spectacular group of islands that are one of the largest breeding grounds in the south pacific for the hope still see. the on evidence of assigned to the marine protected area the fast ever national park in the solomon islands and a sanctuary for the tuttles. today the team looking to catch them for time and release known locally as tuttle road to. the falcon was.
11:51 pm
the 1st attempt is a mess. so it's on to the next location to try again i just don't. get it and it's. the 2nd time lucky. a call to a female green tuttle a different species. she's strong enough to dislocate possums on. and. once on board she's measured and had details are recorded. we're not. going to find. you know the outcome of his next her flip has attacked with unique numbers to help rangers identify her in the future you have let me in. on
11:52 pm
this green turtle has scars from an attack by a crocodile. that common in these waters. world. is growing once the coast is clear she's on her way again. hawksbill sea turtles also face dangers on shore. discovered this not just now ranges must move the surviving eggs so the smell doesn't attract more predators . it's all pays off when the baby turtles are ready to harvest. the women of koach he helped build tuttle highways and the sons leading from the nests to the ocean. as the happening start that journey towards the sea the women trying to keep them on track. they stand guard against
11:53 pm
natural predators and purchase. tools are often cool to enter legally sold to buyers overseas teletoon is also an important traditional food in the solomon islands and it's been hunted for centuries while the practice is still legal outside to preserve the women of koach e a trying to change local attitudes. to me i'm a sort of i've been so i don't like i would say that i go there. and then. my face very pretty and i walk that the way making my like my thinking when you optimus see them coming out from their holes and driving making their way through this thing and then i you play the last thing day and then out the day off and the fact that they are waiting for them out of struggle they're already like and then i was like oh i really hope. and pride is my family though my community. having the best thoughts. she's just one example of how koach his message is
11:54 pm
resonating across the solomon islands several women have brought the fight to save tattles back to their villages to teach office you're the only one living near poor who has started her own offshoot of koichi and have alledge she uses weatherproof charts on islands where electricity isn't available to show local communities how they can help. us out of our generation for tomorrow by about where's the then but then look how that saw him have to look after our state but. it takes 30 years for tuttle's to reach sexual maturity after nesting they travel thousands of kilometers back to the great barrier reef in australia saying this incredible journey helps the women understand the important role they play in conservation where been found very important because we have a custody and there we have the one who will look after the family we fade out
11:55 pm
through in and also we do appropriate things then what their way is happening in a community so it is very important that we women through the understand what is happening in that environment. there are now twice as many tuttle nests in the on of ns as the weapon for the marine park was established 25 years ago. but more needs to be done to save the species i think that if everybody's operating like to get that then we have i have high hopes for that that. had to do have i so see them yeah ok what he is hoping to get more women involved in educating and uniting communities to make sure the solomon islands are a safer place for turtles today and in the future. and
