UK Policeman Changes Jobs To Protect Seahorses

An ex-UK policeman has taken up the cause of stopping illegal fishing that was stripping the habitat for seahorses.  This heartwarming video shows how one person's actions can make a difference.  And to me, the video is also an excellent example of how the love of something, in this case, diving, can inspire you to make interesting career changes.

Paul Ferber, a former British policeman, is the founder and director of the environmental group, Marine Conservation Cambodia.

He lives on an island, Koh Seh in the Gulf of Thailand, and spends many nights waiting on the water to catch illegal fishermen who are devastating Cambodia's coastal ecosystem.

He was inspired to abandon his previous career and take up his work by his love for seahorses
