For years, fishermen in the community of Les, in Bali, used poison cyanide to stun and catch the ornamental fish that supplied their livelihood. This left the local coral reef severely bleached and damaged. So the local people developed solutions to rehabilitate the reef's ecosystem in a way that would allow them to carry on with their traditional life and fishing.
