Kiribati - Protection from the tides

Copyright © Jocelyn Carlin 2001
Families live right next to the lagoon or the ocean side of the low-lying Kiribati capital atoll of Tarawa. In preparation for the king tides, coral rocks are used to build temporary walls that break the swell somewhat protecting the homes.
