In Solomon Islands, the debate over the resumption of dolphin hunting by a village on Malaita is getting more attention from overseas.

The hunt by the people of Fanalei village is a response to a dispute with a US conservation group over money.

But it's also generating headlines overseas and online, with even the former village chief critical of the reasons why it's happening.

Correspondent: Campbell Cooney

Speakers: Chief Wilson Filei, former Fanalei chief; Willie Fa'asa, representative of Walande Village; Lawrence Makili, Director, Earth Institute Solomon Islands; Samuel Manetoali, Minister of Tourism, Solomon Islands
