Journey to the Sinking Lands

A witness to the world's first evacuation of an entire people due to climate change

Sounds of the islands

I’ve gone through the recordings I made while living on the Carterets islands and picked out a few to listen to here. They say the pictures are better on radio, and I agree:

In church, on Sunday morning

Walking through the food gardens with John Sailik and Ruth Marcella

A school assembly

Talking to Selina Bill

A procession to celebrate the Virgin Mary

Walking into the sea

Note; the links above take you to the excellent archive.org. I haven’t been able to work out how to get them to open in a separate window, so any suggestions would be gratefully received.
