Over 350,000 people live 4 feet above sea level in the island republic of Maldives, yet most never learned to swim. National Geographic “ocean hero” Jon Bowermaster organized a learn-to-swim camp there to teach 50 third graders and 20 of their burka-clad mothers how to swim. In a place more threatened by global climate change and rising sea levels than almost anywhere on the planet, it is important that its residents understand what is at risk. Diving into the ocean is a big first step.
