In this archival Land & Sea episode from 1992, the show visits Burnt Islands, a fishing community of 1,000 located half an hour from Port aux Basques. The hook-and-line or long line fishery was taking a nose dive and people there were forced into collecting unemployment insurance stamps. Fishing was the only source of income in the community. This episode also contains footage of an Icelandic fishing boat named The Innovation that was being tried on an experimental basis in the inshore fishery. »»» Subscribe to CBC NL to watch more videos: https://www.youtube.com/c/cbcnl?sub_confirmation=1 For your daily CBC NL news fix: https://www.cbc.ca/nl CBC NL on Twitter: https://www.twitter.com/cbcnl CBC NL on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/cbcnl/ CBC NL is now on YouTube.

Climate change and rising sea levels mean the island nation of Kiribati in the South Pacific is at risk of disappearing into the sea. But the island’s inhabitants aren’t giving up. They are doing what they can to save their island from inundation. Can COP23 help make a difference? UN estimates indicate that Kiribati could disappear in just 30 or 40 years. That’s because the average elevation is less than two meters above sea level. And some of the knock-on effects of climate change have made the situation more difficult. Kiribati can hardly be surpassed in terms of charm and natural beauty. There are 33 atolls and one reef island – spread out over an area of 3.5 million square kilometers. All have white, sandy beaches and blue lagoons. Kiribati is the world’s largest state that consists exclusively of atolls. A local resident named Kaboua points to the empty, barren land around him and says, "There used to be a large village here with 70 families." But these days, this land is only accessible at low tide. At high tide, it's all under water. Kaboua says that sea levels are rising all the time, and swallowing up the land. That’s why many people here build walls made of stone and driftwood, or sand or rubbish. But these barriers won't stand up to the increasing number of storm surges. Others are trying to protect against coastal erosion by planting mangrove shrubs or small trees. But another local resident, Vasiti Tebamare, remains optimistic. She works for KiriCAN, an environmental organization. Vasiti says: "The industrialized countries -- the United States, China, and Europe -- use fossil fuels for their own ends. But what about us?" Kiribati's government has even bought land on an island in Fiji, so it can evacuate its people in an emergency. But Vasiti and most of the other residents don't want to leave. _______ Exciting, powerful and informative – DW Documentary is always close to current affairs and international events.

▶FULL DOCUMENTARIES | http://planetdoc.tv/playlist-full-documentaries ▶ Spanish video: http://planetdoc.tv/documental-completo-fondo-marino-de-cabrera-islas-baleares The Cabrera Archipelago National Park covers a surface area of 10.021 hectares, only 1,836 of which are on land. Eighteen islands and islets and the marine environment protect the land and aquatic species intimately related to the Mediterranean Sea. The Balearic Islands have a mild climate in winter and hot in summer. The erosion of the limestone has resulted in trimmed and uneven coastlines with a combination of impregnable cliffs with coves and paradise beaches. The isolation of the islands has resulted in a very high number of endemic species. Of the archipelago’s close to 450 species of vascular plants, 30 are endemic; the same is true of the land vertebrates, with the exception of the fowl, which have easy contact with the continent. The Cabrera sea bottom have tropical traits. The absolute clearness of its crystalline waters, free from continental clay and mud, produces a luminosity which allows for the existence of submarine vegetation at greater depths and therefore of the animals which live among the algae. In the area close to the surface the light is very intense enable the proliferation of plankton, algae and consequently the different species of fish, particularly herbivores. Further under, between thirty and forty metres, visibility is reduced. Large blocks of rock raise the relief of the ocean bed to form boundless caves and nooks and crannies which serve as places of refuge for the different fish species. More than two hundred fish species live in the waters of the Cabrera archipelago, from the diminutive whitebait measuring 5 centimetres to the scarce and gigantic sharks which can measure up to 12 metres. This variety, which has lured fishermen from nearby coasts since time immemorial, has become, since the creation of the National Park in April 1991, the goal of scuba diving fans. Conger eels are potentially dangerous animals. Behind their thick, fleshy lips they conceal a front row of long and powerful incisors and behind these another row of smaller but very sharp conical teeth. Despite their ferocious appearance, moray eels are timid fish which are only dangerous when forced to defend themselves. But their fear-inspiring faces have given them a terrible reputation while their neighbours, the conger eels, much more dangerous to man, are not considered a threat. The Cabrera Archipelago National Park is an example of its potential and its beauty, but also of the fragility of this threatened ecosystem which requires the joint effort of all bordering countries to guarantee its future.

On the Sea Islands along the coasts of South Carolina and Georgia, a painful chapter of American history is playing out again. These islands are home to the Gullah or Geechee people, the descendants of enslaved Africans who were brought to work at the plantations that once ran down the southern Atlantic coast. After the Civil War, many former slaves on the Sea Islands bought portions of the land where their descendants have lived and farmed for generations. That property, much of it undeveloped waterfront land, is now some of the most expensive real estate in the country. But the Gullah are now discovering that land ownership on the Sea Islands isn’t quite what it seemed. Local landowners are struggling to hold on to their ancestral land as resort developers with deep pockets exploit obscure legal loopholes to force the property into court-mandated auctions. These tactics have successfully fueled a tourism boom that now attracts more than 2 million visitors a year. Gullah communities have all but disappeared, replaced by upscale resorts and opulent gated developments that new locals — golfers, tourists, and mostly white retirees — fondly call “plantations.” Faced with an epic case of déjà vu, the Gullah are scrambling for solutions as their livelihood and culture vanish, one waterfront mansion at a time.

The Coral Sea Islands Territory is an external territory of Australia which comprises a group of small and mostly uninhabited tropical islands and reefs in the Coral Sea. The only inhabited island is Willis Island. The territory covers 780,000 km2, most of which is ocean, extending east and south from the outer edge of the Great Barrier Reef. 2. Willis Island is the only permanently inhabited island in the Coral Sea Islands Territory. The Willis Island weather monitoring station was established in 1921 and equipped with a radio transmitter in order to provide a cyclone early warning service for Queensland. There are usually four weather observers. 3. In 2004, the Gay and Lesbian Kingdom of the Coral Sea Islands was declared as a sovereign state as a symbolic political protest by a group of gay rights activists based in Australia in response to the Australian government's refusal to recognise same-sex marriages. The Kingdom was dissolved on 17 November 2017 following the decision made by the Australian people to legalize gay marriage. 4. Australia's Coral Sea is one of the last places on Earth where ocean giants—sharks, tunas, marlin—still abound. Yet less than 1 percent of the Coral Sea is permanently protected from fishing, oil and gas exploration and seabed mining. 5. The Great Barrier Reef, a part of the Coral Sea just off of Australia’s northeastern Queensland coast, is the world’s largest coral reef. The reef is one of the seven natural wonders of the world, can be seen from space and is larger than the Great Wall of China. 6. There are about 30 separate reefs and atolls, twelve being wholly submerged or drying only during low tide, and 18 others with a total of about 51 islets and cays (18 alone on the atoll Lihou Reef), some of which are vegetated. 7. The Battle of the Coral Sea, fought from 4 to 8 May 1942, was a major naval battle between the Imperial Japanese Navy and naval and air forces from the United States and Australia, taking place in the Pacific Theatre of World War II. The battle is historically significant as the first action in which aircraft carriers engaged each other, as well as the first in which neither side's ships sighted or fired directly upon the other.

U.S. Destroyer Ship Sails 12 Miles Near Paracel Islands Disputed South China Sea Islands in Challenge to Beijing - A U.S. guided-missile destroyer USS McCampbell patrolled near the disputed Paracel Islands in the South China Sea on Monday, challenging Beijing’s maritime claims there, U.S. military officials said. The USS McCampbell conducted what the military calls a freedom of navigation operation in the Paracel Islands chain, sailing within 12 nautical miles of three islands: Tree, Lincoln and Woody, according to a Navy official. The ship patrol was meant to challenge excessive maritime claims by Beijing and to “preserve access to the waterways as governed by international law,” according to a statement from Lt. j.g. Rachel McMarr, a spokeswoman for U.S. Pacific Fleet. China sent a vessel to warn off the American ship and has lodged a complaint with the U.S., Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Lu Kang said Monday at a regular press briefing in Beijing. Mr. Lu urged the U.S. to stop taking provocative action in the region and avoid disrupting trade talks under way in Beijing. “It is imperative for the two sides and I believe we have a responsibility to create an enabling atmosphere for these talks at this time,” he said. The Paracels are claimed by Vietnam and Taiwan but have been controlled by China since it seized them from Vietnamese forces in 1974. The U.S. Navy has conducted such patrols in the South China Sea for years but tensions with Beijing over the operations have escalated in recent years as China has sought to assert its extensive maritime claims in one of the world’s busiest waterways. The U.S. and its Asian allies and partners have been alarmed in particular by China’s construction of seven fortified artificial islands—including three with large airstrips—in the Spratly Islands chain. China’s claims in the Spratlys overlap with those of Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines—a U.S. treaty ally. Beijing has also upgraded several military outposts in the Paracels and deployed jet fighters to at least one, according to satellite images and U.S. officials. The U.S. has responded by stepping up its patrols in the area—often sailing close to China’s new artificial islands—and encouraging allies to exercise their right to freedom of navigation in the area. China’s reclamation activities in the Paracels are less extensive than in the Spratlys and are considered by the U.S. and others as less threatening to the status quo in the region, but Beijing typically takes a dim view of Washington’s patrols through the area. China says it has “indisputable” sovereignty over all South China Sea islands and their adjacent waters, and has often accused the U.S. of destabilizing the region with its naval patrols. The USS Decatur conducted a patrol in the Spratlys in September, sailing past Gaven and Johnson reefs over the course of a 10-hour patrol and sailing within 12 nautical miles of both features. The two outposts have been fortified militarily and have reinforced fears among the U.S., Asian nations and others that China could use such islands to base ships, planes, weaponry and other material to enforce its claims across the South China Sea. “U.S. forces operate in the Indo-Pacific region on a daily basis, including in the South China Sea,” according to a statement from the U.S. Pacific Fleet. “All operations are designed in accordance with international law and demonstrate that the United States will fly, sail and operate wherever international law allows.

The South China Sea is a marginal sea that is part of the Pacific Ocean, encompassing an area from the Karimata and Malacca Straits to the Strait of Taiwan of around 3,500,000 square kilometres (1,400,000 sq mi). The area's importance largely results from one-third of the world's shipping sailing through its waters and that it is believed to hold huge oil and gas reserves beneath its seabed.China has been rapidly piling sand onto reefs in the South China Sea, creating seven new islets in the region. It is straining geopolitical tensions that were already taut. The speed and scale of China’s island-building spree have alarmed other countries with interests in the region. China announced in June that the creation of islands — moving sediment from the seafloor to a reef — would soon be completed. Since then, China has focused its efforts on construction. So far it has constructed port facilities, military buildings and an airstrip on the islands, with recent imagery showing evidence of two more airstrips under construction. The installations bolster China’s foothold in the Spratly Islands, a disputed scattering of reefs and islands in the South China Sea more than 500 miles from the Chinese mainland.

Countries from around the world have insisted that China's expansion into the South China Sea is illegal. It is building a huge artificial island in the Spratly Island chain, one of the most contested areas in the world. The islands are difficult to reach, but BBC correspondent Rupert Wingfield-Hayes flew in a small civilian aircraft into China's self-declared security zone, 140 miles off the coast of the Philippines.

While climate change is debated on the world stage, the reality for those in the Pacific is that it is banging down their front door. The people of low lying atolls like Kiribati and Tuvalu are being forced to flee their land due to rising sea levels and the reality for people from other Pacific paradises is that they will soon follow. Samoan Pacific Climate Warrior, Brianna Fruean, shows us the affect climate change is having on her homeland and warns of the devastating consequences that may be in the not too distant future.

Together, we explore the gin clear waters of Isla Cerralvo, find shipwrecks 80ft deep that can be seen from the surface at Arrecife de la Foca, and meet some of the most playful sea lions we've ever seen in Isla Espiritu Santo, a desert island paradise.

We joined Seafari Fishing Charters for a half day fishing adventure off the coast of Rarotonga. As the boat cruises out to the deeper water drop off the view of the island is spectacular. Being a volcanic island we didn't have to go far as it drops off to deep water fairly close to shore. It is a trolling set up as it was the large fish we were catching and it wasn't too long before we had our first bite. Everyone on board got to have a go bringing in the fish and a great thing to see was that even those who weren't very experienced with fishing had the chance to bring in a fish with the help and advice of the crew. If you have any questions please leave a comment and we'll get back to you with an answer as soon as we can. I hope you enjoy our videos from our television series INTO WATER & BEYOND.

From Tokyo's Disneyland an incredible tourist attraction to the man-made islands w/ beautiful beaches & resorts perfect to visit Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Ile Aux Cygnes This smalls artificial island is located on the River Seine in Paris and was created in 1827 in order to protect the port of Grenelle. Ile aux cygnes translates to the Island of Swans. It’s uninhabited for the most part except for this replica of Lady Liberty that stands about 70 feet tall, facing the direction of her much larger sister in New York City. It was originally facing the direction of the Eiffel Tower but ... 5. Nanhai Pearl Island This artificial island located off the coast of Holiday beach in China is currently under construction and will be an enormous tourist attraction with hotels, shipyard, cruiseships and a theme park. It currently has one bridge that connects it to the mainland of Hainan China. China has become notorious lately with their construction of artificial islands. They caused some controversy when they began constructing many islands and then militarizing them and turning them into airbase fortresses of the China Sea, which we’ll get into more later. But this one here is supposed to be for touristic purposes. Construction began in April 2016 and consists of a round, crescent shaped body, and somewhat seems like a response to Dubai’s artificial islands. 4. Islands of Uros The Uros people of Peru live very simple lives on floating artificial islands. These islands are actually made of reeds that grow on the edges of Lake Titicaca. These reeds are harvested, bundled tightly and small settlements are built on top of them.The Uros are very mysterious people and legend has it that they have black blood and have seemingly magical tolerance to cold weather. The purpose of the island settlements were originally for defensive purposes and if they came into threats from invading tribes they could simply move their homes on this islands. Each island houses anywhere from 2-10 families depending on the size. Local residents enjoy a variety of different resources that Lake titicaca provides which include, a large variety of fish, birds such as flamingos and even graze cattle on their islands. Simply fascinating. 3. Palm Jumeirah How would you feel about living on an extremely large man made island in the Persian Gulf? Sounds like it could be intriguing. These also belong to the flamboyant United Arab Emirates. But instead of taking the shape of the world, these cluster of islands are shaped like a palm tree and are much utilized than it’s neighboring chain of islands. The palm tree consists of a trunk that acts like a bridge to the mainland with 16 fronds and a surrounding crescent shaped island. This is the home the to luxurious Palm Atlantis Hotel which began construction in 2001. This adds an extra 40 miles to Dubai’s coastline and was built with over 7 million tons of stone. They kept the nearby ecosystem in mind and used natural rock to encourage natural reef creation by the sea life. 2. Thilafushi Maldives The Maldives are known for being an excellent resort country in the middle of the indian ocean. Its beautiful beaches are flocked to by millions of tourists each year. One of its least popular islands, however, isn’t really natural. The thilafushi island is built on top of reclaimed coral reefs in 1992 not to house a 5 star resort, but to house the garbage left by tourists and locals alike. It was built as a landfill and given the nickname garbage island. In 2005, it’s estimated that 31000 truckloads of garbage were transported to this island each year and it continues to grow each year at the rate of 365,000 square feet a day! The BBC even described the waste on the island was apocalyptic. 1.Chinese War Islands In recent years, it’s been China’s goal to beef up their military presence especially in the South China Sea where these islands are located. Their building islands here on international waters at an exponential rate at there seems to be no end in sight. The US navy and rival Asian counterparts dispute these practices as being aggressive and unnecessary. This is part of their plan to build dominance as a commercial and military power and no one wants to tell them to stop. This guarantees that tension in this area will continue to rise especially as Vietnam, Australia and the Philippines don’t appreciate this one bit. Just because it’s called the China Sea, doesn’t make it theirs! It’s a crucial trade route with more than 5 trillion dollars worth of international shipping each year, in which China has no historical ties with. If something isn’t done about these islands soon, it could very well lead to world war 3.
