The vibrant coral reefs that surround the Solomon Islands are home to diverse #marine  species that support the #livelihoods  of thousands of subsistence #fishers  and their families. However, they are under threat from overharvesting. Watch this #video to learn how local communities are now working in partnership with the #CGIAR Research Program on Aquatic #Agricultural Systems to secure these natural resources: http://bit.ly/1KLqDyr

Quite frankly, I don't give a rat's ass about "livelihoods and food nutrition security". In the age of the 6th extinction, ocean acidification and the demise of the reefs will have far more devastating effects that won't just affect a couple of fisheries. This is just the beginning.

Coastal communities in #Solomonlslands‬ are leading training workshops to teach participants how to replant #mangroves and corals. Replanting mangrove forests and replenishing #coral reefs will help to secure these natural #resources and their vast benefits in to the future: http://bit.ly/1QAhcc9 #WorldFish
The vibrant coral reefs that surround the 1,000 islands, atolls and islets of the Solomon Islands are home to diverse marine species that support the livelihoods of thousands of subsistence fishers and their families.
