OBSERVERS DIRECT: Fighting urbanization on Morocco's coastline

The Observers is a collaborative project that includes both a website and a weekly TV show, all based on amateur content.


For our latest Observers Direct we went to the Atlantic coast of Morocco to visit three of our Observers. They’re concerned that the expansion of Casablanca and other cities is taking a toll on the kingdom’s delicate coastal ecosystems. Watch the full report.
