    Some fishermen in Kenya have hung up their nets - and are instead trying to conserve marine life.

    Now known as "reef rangers", they have been trained to monitor fish stocks and their habitats.

    It is a part of efforts by the government and conservation groups to involve local communities in protecting their environment.
