The Solomon  Islands Video Training Project was supported by Television for the Environment (TVE https://www.tve.org.uk). The outcome was a 23 minute non-broadcast educational video focusing on the issue of coral reef conservation. The people of the Solomon Islands are on the verge of losing their richest marine resource- the coral reefs. The reefs provide communities with sustenance, a livelihood and protection from the elements. Rif Blong Yumi assesses the devastating impact or population pressure, overfishing and tourism on the delicate reef ecosystem. In frank interviews with local people and government officials, traditional forms of marine conservation practiced by the fishermen from Marou Lagoon are considered and possible solution to the crisis are examined.
