Campaign: To warn illegal poachers about the damage they are causing to local fish stocks

Since learning how to fish when I was about four years old, the activity has become a favourite pastime of mine. I find it really relaxing and it makes me feel at one with nature.

 

Sadly, a few people are continuing to break the rules by netting fish illegally and spoiling it for the rest of us.

 

My campaign is to show these poachers the damage they're causing to local fish reserves. 

 

This crime needs to stop, which is why I’m working with Fixers on a poster campaign to warn these people that what they do is wrong and it needs to stop.

A special thank you to Libe Aguayo for helping me with my Fix.
