Kiribati, an island located in the central Pacific Ocean, can be a diver's paradise. But for the locals, it's far from a paradise. In addition to many social, economical and health issues afflicting the island, it is facing serious environmental woes due to the effects of climate change. It is estimated that the island will be completely under water by 2100. When I asked the local residents “ You are lucky to live on such a beautiful island, what do you every day?” They answered “ nothing, we got no work. Men go out fishing, women just sit and watch the waves all day. We worried about our future because the island is disappearing into the water” But it seems that children are happy and worry free playing in the water every day like any other children in the world.
