The protector of Fiji's baby turtles

Elizabeth Sokidi from the Mamanuca islands, just off the coast of Fiji, cares for tiny baby turtles. Sea turtle numbers have been dwindling at an alarming rate around the world. In 2004, Fiji declared a moratorium on the selling, killing and consumption of turtles, and Elizabeth is working hard to increase their numbers before that moratorium ends next year.
