SEYCHELLES - CORAL CRUSADERS: Surrounded by over a million square kilometres of Indian Ocean, the people of the Seychelles depend on the sea for everything. But climate change is threatening their future. Now they are fighting for the survival of their reefs and all who depend on them. Coral Crusaders - on the front line.

PLASTIC OCEAN: Plastic - both a wonderful invention and a scourge on our planet. Over 300 million tons will be produced this year. Most is never recycled and remains on our land and in our seas for ever. Our story shows the damage to all creatures who depend on the ocean for their food - from us.

SOLOMON ISLANDS: SAVING THE PACIFIC'S TUNA - In the Western and Central Pacific they are a part of the culture - and a multi-billion dollar business. They are eaten everywhere around the world - and they are becoming easier and easier to catch. Will modern technology mean the end of tuna - or will it help them survive?
