The Drowning Islands

The Carterets Islands' Last Generation

Dan  Box travelled to Bougainville after winning a competition run by the Royal Geographical Society and the BBC. As the winner of the annual Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) Journey of a Lifetime Award, Dan traveled to the islands to witness the first wave of the Carterets Islanders’ evacuation and to make a BBC radio documentary about what is happening.
