Ghost Nets to Sports Net
Animal Warriors Conservation Society, supported by HCL Foundation, has taken up the initiative to mitigate the problem of Ghost Nets by collecting ghost nets and upcycling them to something useful that communities can use. Ghost nets are fishing nets that have been abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded in the ocean. Recently, they successfully made a badminton net out of a Ghost Net that the youth in the community can used while playing. The initiative benefits both the fisher community and biodiversity.
