In this episode:
Our country has some of the world’s rarest species of animals as well as plants. We have to take care of our animals and the environment as a whole. Preserving the environment is important because humans depend upon the natural environment. Many of our plants and animal are at risk of becoming extinct. The most serious consequence is the loss of the ecosystem.
We also take a look at the battle against rising sea level in many Papua New Guinean coastal communities. It is a battle that we will eventually lose.
While much talk has been going on about climate change and its impacts in coastal villages, there’s little or nothing that can be done.
Both local and international based humanitarian organizations are implementing plans and strategies to prepare people in times of disaster, looking at short term measures to help impacted villages.
In this story, Laugui village in the Morobe province gives a glimpse of the impacts of climate change and how it’s affecting the life of the people.
Laugui village, a low lying strip in the Huon Gulf in the Morobe province is predicted to go under water in the next few years.
