Dire Strait: Meet Australia's first climate refugees

Down to the waterline

Saibai and Boigu stand on Australia's northern frontier of climate change in the Torres Strait. Meet Australia's first climate warriors and climate refugees. As the rising tides flood their townships, the islanders are walling off the ocean for another generation - another 40 years of borrowed time.

Saibai elder Mebai Warusam sings and tells how his island home is being lost to melting icecaps and rising oceans.
