Green Matters: Car Sharing, Endangered Turtles, Marine Parks (2007)

Episode 17
Available worldwide

Rather than pay $10,000 for an extra parking space at her condo, a Washington woman opted instead to sell her Jeep and joined Community Car, a member-based car-sharing organization. In 1938 a big scientific sensation was caused by the discovery of a coelacanth, a fish dating back at least 400 million years and believed extinct for 70 million years. At France’s popular Meribel ski resort, good snow is no longer a given, as the owners know they must turn to artificial methods to guarantee good skiing and good business. On the coast of southern Lebanon, Mona Khalil tirelessly works to safeguard critically endangered loggerhead and green turtles, patrolling the beach every morning, checking for new nests and ensuring the eggs are safe. Nowadays it’s not only humans using natural grooming products, as a British company has a range to suit household pets – dogs, horses and even camels. Millions of poor people depend on the ocean’s rich resources for food and livelihoods, yet in many countries these resources are overused and under-managed – creating a vicious circle where lower fish stocks lead to more poverty, leads to further overfishing, and so on.
