Living on the Edge: Dovi’s Story

Dovi Woollens has lived along the coast of Baguida, Togo for her entire life. She makes her living from the sea, by selling fish and seafood in her local community. In recent years, Dovi has struggled to make ends meet because fish are no longer as plentiful, and it’s harder to have a good catch. All along the coast of West Africa, fishermen and women like Dovi face similar threats to their livelihood. They are on the frontlines of the climate change, coastal erosion and pollution, that’s threatening the ocean systems critical to all our futures.
