On October 18th Erik Abrahamsson from Amana’ are heading towards Southeast Asia for a six months long stay with Bajau Laut – The People of the Sea.
During the journey in Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia Amana’ will make a short documentary movie about Bajau Laut. In Philippines, we are also going to continue our co-operation with The Badjao Community Association in Davao City, which aims to enable a sustainable livelihood for the people in the Sama village.
Throughout the journey, Erik will also collect diving statistics for professor Erika Schagatay at the Mid-Sweden University. He is bringing three logging devices that will measure how deep the Bajau fishermen dive and for how long they stay under water.
We will make continuous updates on Amana’s webpage during the journey.
