New webdoc from Global Ideas
With its latest webdoc, DW invites children young and old to explore the underwater world in the South Pacific with Namati – a young coral off the coast of Vanuatu. Namati’s World is the latest webdoc from the Global Ideas team. It offers spectacular underwater video footage and a story full of suspense. Namati tells the story of her amazing experiences off the coast of Pele Island in the Pacific archipelago nation of Vanuatu. At 114 years of age, Namati is still a child. Brain corals can live to be over a thousand years old – that is, if they can withstand the effects of global climate change such as the warming of the world’s oceans.
