Changing Climate, Changing Reef
Like many Pacific Island Nation communities, they are on the ‘front lines’ of rapid ecological change and resource depletion. Resource management and protection is critical to their sovereignty and cultural integrity. This is their project, and we have pledged to be available for scientific and technological assistance in the effort.
Climate change is affecting the outer island communities in Micronesia! The Federated States of Micronesia in the Pacific has 30,000 citizens living on atolls that are vanishing due to sea level rise from climate change.
Today they have drinking water shortages and food security is in peril.
