Video: Living Isle

Living Isle from Alex Goetz on Vimeo.

Off the coast of Honduras is a chain of islands known as Cayos Cochinos. The islands have been recognized as a vital portion of the Meso-American Reef and are now protected as a marine sanctuary where commercial fishing is banned. However, the Garifuna people have been living and fishing there since the 18th century and continue to be allowed to do so to this day.

The film, by Alex Goetz, is one of four finalists to the second annual National Geographic WILD’s Wild to Inspire film contest.
