Congo | Locals build sea turtle hatcheries as part of plans for new MPA

On the shores of Pointe Indienne, along the Atlantic Ocean, a large olive ridley sea turtle is unable to move. Tired after being caught in fishermen's nets and kept in a dugout canoe until Jean Félix Tchibinda Frakata arrived.

Frakata, a former fisherman, has been working alongside marine conservation organization Renatura for more than 10 years, fighting for the protection and preservation of marine turtles in Congo.
