On an exotic Zanzibar island, it was a classic clash: resort development versus villagers dependent on local reefs for their livelihood. This time the villagers won. Once threatened by resort development, Pemba Island's spectacular reefs and lagoons - World Heritage candidates - are now managed by, and for, fishermen. Host Carl Safina fishes with the locals in traditional dhows and dugout canoes and meets the island's influential imams, who preach that the Koran calls human beings to be the stewards of creation.
