The Observers Direct

Observers Direct: With our Observers in... Saint Louis, Senegal

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


This is the first in a series of special episodes, which will be focused on cities where we go meet several of our Observers.

For this episode, we head to Saint Louis, Senegal, where three of our Observers tell us about the coastal erosion that has resulted in climate refugees, about local fishermen's troubles, and about a volunteer lifeguard teaching kids to swim to prevent drownings.
