5 Arrests in 50 hours
New campaign alert: Operation Sierra Leone Coastal Defense
5 poaching vessels have been arrested in less than 50 hours at the launch of our newest campaign on Africa’s west coast. Working in partnership with the Sierra Leonian Navy, our ship, the Bob Barker, carried out raids against fishing vessels inside protected areas, finding that several were fishing illegally or without licenses.
The five vessels are now facing justice for their crimes in Sierra Leone
