Well done brother. Your arrival at Pere would have been something very special. I wish I was there. I could even feel the rhythm of the garamut from Newcastle.

What you and the crew of ClimateChallenger has achieved so far has made a huge difference to the coastal people.

And it has made you even stronger, hungrier and smarter for the next adventure. And that is to complete the rest of the mission.

Looking forward to catching up with you and the crew soon.

Here is a proud Manus islander in London who sends her congratulations to Manuai Matawai and the Climate Challenger team on your epic journey. I am excited that our canoe did the distance.

As to the main issue, our islands are being affected and I can say that the coastline of Baluan no longer resembles the coastline I knew as a child. So I wish you all the very best in your advocacy effort.

I hope the world acknowledges in a meaningful and sympathetic manner that climate change contributes to existential challenges that small island states and their populations are left to grapple with.
