Poruma (Coconut Island)

Poruma, or Coconut Island in the Torres Strait is one of those idyllic places of which the Torres Straits has a few. It is a coral atoll so low to sea level that the highest part of the island is no more than about 2 metres above sea level. They are very concerned about potential sea level rises and even now erosion by the sea id a real worry for the community there.
