seaweed most buyers are other countries in asia where people have been eating in the marine plant for millennia. in europe production is still on a much smaller scale but here to see weed is being touted as a material with a bright future the sector that has a lot of potential grows quickly doesn't take up fertile land and could be used in a wide range of applications there are more than $72000.00 species of algae worldwide the largest over 60 metres and length algae based ingredients are already used in many foods for example as binding agents to different types of brown algae are now being grown commercially in norway up to $100.00 tonnes of them a year the farm in 4 year is one of the biggest in europe as the global population rises a new food trends quote fashionable seaweed is appearing more frequently on european

plates seaweed cultivation has grown quickly in the past 10 years 1st and foremost in france and ireland but steyn and of course norway are also exploring the options . it is the growing market there we work a lot alike if that were lifting this market because. it is still quite new to the european population to see with that. we have a lot of influence from the. europeans are more and more like 3 earlier with the with now generally in europe and. people are more concerned about where their food. are interested in local traceable thurgood but at present most of the seaweed eaten in europe is still imported from asia. and they are normal you know is still one step ahead this she made from red algae

increases wildlife. seaweed a budding new industry in europe. there around $200000.00 seaweed farmers and indonesia often whole families get involved the women tie the seedlings to the lines and take care of the finances the men are responsible for the cultivation and harvest for her products normal you'll know works together with 2000 families she also helps them with the business side of things and works with help middleman this means she can pay better wages. the most important things that. drive me to base unit and this is about. this they are living in they are so they have no access fulfilling their basic needs so some of them also have a fit of human trafficking so i think it's very very. involved and.

help them to improve life can put. one of the farmers who supply a small yone who is obtuse you carter who call to bates and on 300 lines and punk 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. it's still a family is full of promise that we hope it will enable us to pay for the best possible education for our children and. it's much more profitable than working as a fisherman. in. we hope that see we will always florida share and that we can maintain its quality. nori maggio no hope so too at any rate she already needs another 1000 suppliers and 2020 farmers like.
3:39 am
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 units per day using a raw material with massive future potential. i am. ok to cheat. this week we meet up with a global teen from nairobi kenya. i live in kenya.
3:40 am

3:41 am
i read that so. i'm afraid of high i.q. for example if i'm standing in the tell me when i can't look down because i'm afraid as thought. i would like to be. made talented the last thing so much. i feel i think but i don't be listening and then we give the had enough meat these life had to do this job when they do that because of that that. in the early 20th century africa was home to an estimated 10000000 or more elephants.
3:42 am
100 years later poaching and habitat loss have caused their numbers to drop to no 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 in chhobi national park on the many elephants and so lopes. that hippos roaming free. botswana has the world's highest elephant population somewhere between 13160000. tourists flock to model that dam. without a bagman has been coming here with her husband for many years.
3:43 am
this time especially. no because my family are here to my niece and my 2 grandchildren we really wanted to show them the africa we know and love we can be among all these animals and so close to them on him that's not anything down that's how tourists experience the elephants. and this is how local people experience them. park ranger horsey myra is out on patrol. just. 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 their young. to support.
3:44 am
elephants wonder through residential areas and farms this often leads to conflict between humans and animals. danielle just when you saw jeremiah says he always keeps a gun loaded he has a farm outside cassani i showed him the elephant the last. 28 days. it was in the field here in the day i dared to skate if used then those who are. now ok and then of and this is not 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 fields
3:45 am
destroying his crops. the was there come to every day to day that can get to this piece linda nice to come again and continue until the whole field is done. elephants have trampled his friend says including the electric ones. and jeremiah doesn't have the money to repair them. the moment of my life is being called the thing that did it or they didn't buy 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 does that to many the need to be reduced. the government hasn't organized any college culture eventually last year lifted
3:46 am
a ban on elephant hunting that had been imposed 5 years earlier it now permits the killing of 403 year promising a field day for sports hunters the government says the hunting should be allowed specifically in areas where elephants human conflicts are most common so what elephants we have learnt over time about elephants is that when the north is danger they will not go to those areas and we use those controlled hunting to achieve that not to reduce numbers but to create that barrier so that people can continue about livelihoods i mean. it's been estimated that the elephant population will continue to grow significantly even if $400.00 to kill each year. trophy hunting is widely despised in europe for example but can it actually fulfill a useful function. some conservationists think it can.
3:47 am
the impact will be positive because botswana is absolutely committed to having any resources that it gets from sport to go to the communities rural botswanans live where 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. he'd say 2 of them back. then there were others they say tried to run down. and had to be and. so they pulled
3:48 am
him she tells us they used to be fewer elephants in the area and they were less aggressive. independent there with just come and mouse you present elephant just feet in there sometimes without even seeing it but now why does the actually change 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 part of the
3:49 am
solomon islands north of australia she met some activists who are working to protect the turtles. in. the solomon islands look like paradise on earth the region hair in the south pacific is home to rich more him 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 worse by hunting and illegal trading. researches estimate that some $10000.00 turtles are harvested each year. that's pushed hawksbill sea turtles to the brink of extinction
3:50 am
. but for the creatures who make it to this particular beach that's home. 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 power for background so having to give also have the opportunity for them to embrace a challenge and for the project they've come together uniting them together for conservation. they're on my way to the owner from a spectacular group of islands that's one of the largest breeding grounds in the south pacific for the hawksbill seems to. be on evidence of a slice of a marine protected area the 1st ever national park in the solomon islands and
3:51 am
a sanctuary for the tuttles. today the team looking to catch them for time and release one likely as tuttle going to. win the falcon one. the 1st attempt is a mess. so it's on to the next location to try again i'm going to start or not though. i mean i'm going to the. second time lucky. they call to a female green tuttle a different species. she's strong enough to dislocate a person's arm. and. once on board she's measured and had to tells the record that we're not we're not going when i'm.
3:52 am
you know the outcome of his next test flip has attacked with unique numbers to help rangers identify her in the future you have them in. this green turtle has scars from an attack by a crocodile. that common in these waters. where the old. it's growing once the coast is clear she's on her way again. right folks still see tuttle's also face dangers i'm sure rocks have 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 of ready to catch. the women of koach he helped build tuttle highways in the sun and leading from the nests to the ocean. as the happening start their journey
3:53 am
towards the sea the women try to keep them on track. they stand guard against natural predators and purchase. tools are often cotton illegally sold to buyers overseas totem 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 out to cheat. me our thought of when i've been so i don't like i would say that i. have them right and then. my face very pretty i know what that they really canes my like my thinking when you actually see them coming out from their holes and driving making their way there and then i hear you play them laughing there and then out me off and the fact that they are waiting for ben out of struggle they have already like and then i was like oh i really thought the
3:54 am
empire is my farm you know my community. having the best. she's just one example of how koach his message is resonating across the solomon islands several women have brought the fight to save tattles back to their villages to teach office the only land lavinia poor has started her own offshoot of koichi and a half image she uses weatherproof charts on items where electricity isn't available to show local communities how they can help. us of our generation for tomorrow. where is the then but then look how that saw him have to look after our state but. it takes 30 years for tattles 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
3:55 am
because we have a course to d.n.a. we have the one who looks after the family we fade out through rain and also we. finish then what there is happening in a community so it is very important that we women truth 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 hope are a thing like work to get that then we have i have high hopes for that that the have to do have a so you see them yeah ok 7 ok. he is hoping to get more women involved in educating and uniting communities to make sure the solomon islands are a safer place for tattles today and in the future. that's
