''The island is sinking'', laments one woman. We see it with our own eyes. It is estimated that by 2015, the Carteret Islands will disappear under the sea. Already, the beaches are littered with fallen trees, their roots eroded by the tide. Rising sea levels have made it impossible for the islanders to grow anything apart from coconuts. They are now dependent on aid from PNG. Our houses are getting closer and closer to the sea’’,, complains one woman. Maybe one day, a tidal wave will sweep everyone away. The government plans to relocate people but many islanders refuse to move. As one states, ''If the island is lost, I'm lost too.''
