360° GEO - Report shows the people from St. Pierre and Miquelon in their struggle between self-preservation and responsibility against nature.

Saint Pierre and Miquelon - directly in front of Newfoundland's coast lays a French archipelago forgotten from the far motherland. For centuries, the codfish brought prosperity to the group of islands, until a French-Canadian agreement prohibited catching it due to overfishing.

Today, even the rough beauty of the island nature is threatened - because environmentalists are powerless against the frustration and indifference of the island's inhabitants. The environmental activist and passionate naturalist Roger Etcheberry lives on St. Pierre and Miquelon since childhood.
Together with a Parisian botanist he explores the few pristine places on the archipelago and fights for their conservation.
