Giving up fishing, a team of fishermen completed an intensive training to preserve Lamu’s fragile environment

Some fishermen in Kenya have hung up their nets - and are instead trying to conserve marine life.

Now known as "reef rangers", they have been trained to monitor fish stocks and their habitats.

It is a part of efforts by the government and conservation groups to involve local communities in protecting their environment.
