Mauritius is a small island with a big ocean state. Fringed by a ring of coral reefs, the lagoons attract millions of tourists and provide a livelihood for more than 2,200 local artisanal fishermen. However, years of degradation has left the oceans in a fragile state.

Now, fishermen from Mauritius and the nearby island of Rodrigues are providing solutions and inspiring others to take simple actions that make a difference. In Vey nou Lagon by filmmakers Vanina Harel and Zara Currimjee, meet fishermen from the two islands and see how they are working together to protect their lagoons for future generations.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic’s belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. To submit a film for consideration, please email sfs@natgeo.com. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
