Synopsis : The eastern coast of Mozambique is notorious for riptides and drownings. For the people who live here, the ocean is their livelihood, but also a dangerous place, and nobody is taught how to swim. Pascoal is an outreach officer for Love The Oceans, who are supporting swimming classes and marine biology lessons in Guinjata, the local village. We follow Pascoal’s story of overcoming his fear of the sea, and how he is passing forward his knowledge and advice to future generations in order to breed a new wave of local marine conservationists.
