Please save the Lapita Navigators- 4,000 native-island people located in the Federated States of Micronesia in the Pacific who are suffering and risk death andcultural extinction due to rising sea levels. Please assign a team to visit the Atolls(islands) where they live and create a proactive evacuation plan and execute relocationefforts to save their lives and preserve their culture.
The Lapita Navigators live as a self-sustaining community closely aligned to the Earth and nature. They do not have running water, electricity or the ability to communicateimmediately with us. By saving their lives and preserving this natural and sustainableculture these people may help the rest of the world by providing an example of apeaceful and sustainable community.
According to current National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration sea level trend reports, the sea level has risen at least five inches in the past 5 years.Currently salt water is infiltrating their land rendering it difficult to grow food and spoiling their drinking water. Micronesia does not have funds, equipment or resourcesto orchestrate a relocation effort. Yap--a larger and developed island of Micronesia--hasoffered to provide land to the Navigators where they can continue their natural way of life.
Please act quickly and create a relocation plan to save these people and preserve their culture. It would be a travesty for them to die and it is unnecessary for them tocontinue to struggle with agriculture and water safety issues.
