Visit to Fishermen Community, Kundapur: Jacqueline Haussmann & Till Schirrmeister, Germany – Weltwaerts program, IJGD

Once a week, we, the participants of the Sea Turtle Conservation program (STC) of FSL-India, drive to one of the fishermen communities here, in the area of Kundapur. Meeting the fishermen is one of the most interesting tasks in our voluntary work. There, we have the opportunity to talk with the fishermen about different problems, e.g. the waste problem or overfishing that affect the fishermen, as well as the sea turtles.
