Poachers turned protectors: Senegalese fishermen protect sea turtles

In a classic case of "poacher turning gamekeeper," fishermen of Senegal in West Africa have joined forces to protect one of the ocean's most endangered species: the sea turtle. "We went from being poachers, the biggest turtle eaters, to being the biggest turtle protectors," says Abdou Karim Sall, a fisherman who is now the manager of a protected marine zone through which the turtles pass.
