Climate change is the most pressing ecological crisis
impacting the Pacific region.
Like Aotearoa New Zealand, other countries in the Pacific are particularly vulnerable to
climate change because we have small, low-lying, and geographically dispersed islands.
We also live in coastal communities which means we are more exposed to changing weather patterns
and systems, and it can affect access to food and income.

Coastal fishing communities in Timor-Leste are significantly impacted by climate change and Cecilia Lay is volunteering with Blue Ventures Conservation there to provide essential ecological monitoring to help communities make decisions about how they adapt to changes caused by climate change.
