Takuu is a small, little-known of atoll in the Pacific. It is a sinking atoll that struggles everyday to keep the waves from deteriorating it. Attention must be brought to the public so that the people of the islands can receive the help they need

Takuu Atoll

The people of Takuu are extremely dedicated to their home and the culture they have created on it. However the effects of climate change have slowly deteriorated the islands, and continues to with each day. Day by day the island gets closer to being completely engulfed by the water. It is sinking, and if no help comes soon, it will disappear. 
Please help spread the word about this disaster so that the islands and their peoples can be saved.

Here is an article from CNN about the dangers that inhabitants are facing:

And here is a link to a trailer for a documentary about Takuu, called There Once Was An Island:
