Bwere Eritaia is most concerned about the erosion occurring on the low-lying coral atolls. Leaning on a coconut tree felled by the erosion at the edge of the lagoon near his home on Tarawa, he tells of being a traditional climate forecaster and navigator, an environmentalist, conservationist, an education officer for lagoon management, and an environmental consultant to the Government on National capacity building and assessment. He says 'everything is changing fisherman can't navigate there way back home anymore by the cloud formations'. A sometimes Lecturer at Kiribati Protestant Church Theological College, believes 'God will look after us but as he told us to look after our gardens and we haven’t, we have to play a our part now and look after ourselves.
