The archipelago of San Blas comprises of over 360 tiny, coral reef islands, about half a mile from the mainland of the Isthmus of Panama and stretching to the borders of Colombia.

San Blas islands are nearly at the water level and as the global shifts in temperature accelerate, the low lying archipelago is under the threat of being sunk by the sea. The indigenous people, Guna Yala, who 200 years ago left the mainland of Panama to escape malaria, inhabit San Blas.  Currently, Guna people are facing a tough reality of either abandonment of their ancestral way of life and moving to the mainland, or staying and risking losing their well-preserved culture and homes to the sea. In addition to the threat of becoming climate refugees, Guna people face an ecological disaster, as there is no waste removal program and tiny islands are filled with rubbish. Guna are containing plastic waste as much as they can, however, every wave washing over the island shore washes the rubbish out into the open sea. [Official Website]
