Aboard Mission Blue, scientist Greg Stone tells the story of how he helped the Republic of Kiribati to create an enormous protected area in the middle of the Pacific — protecting fish, sealife and perhaps the island nation itself.
Lying on the equator halfway between Australia and Hawaii, Kiribati is one of the least developed and poorest nations in the Pacific Island region. The group of 33 islands are spread over vast distances and experience typhoons and cyclones. The population of Kiribati is set to double over the next 20 years, which will intensify environmental, health and infrastructure problems. Inadequate sanitation, violence, gender inequality, disabilities and climate change - particularly sea level rise - are all significant development issues for Kiribati.
