An Ancient Legend Teaches Climate Change Adaptation

This video adapted from the Secretariat of the Pacific Community tells the legend of Uab, a boy who grew into a giant as he ate everything around him. Uab became so heavy that the island he lived on began to sink. His appetite caused other problems, including a change in weather patterns and damage to coral reefs. Left with no choice, the islanders eventually killed Uab. This legend mirrors what is happening today globally and in the Pacific Island region: the unsustainable use of land, marine, and freshwater resources is having unwanted effects. In response, Palau is taking steps to help conserve natural resources for future generations.
