Too often protected species are killed and nothing happen. People drive on the beach raising erosion and damage for the marine life and nothing happen. Illegal ad unsustainable fishing can be seeing almost daily in Mozambique. Most of people are aware of the regulations but they don´t care as patrolling is extremely rare. On the 15/11/2012 and 16/11/2012 it was different in Zavora. A fisherman was found with a huge turtle in his bag and was took to police station. Next day the police together with the Maritma came back to Zavora and confiscated all the illegal fishing nets. We would prefer that education would stop acts against nature, but unfortunately people tend to think on today rather than tomorrow and enforcement is need. We congratulation the Mozambican authorities to take actions!
