The Sea Gypsies of Malaysia Part 2

Poverty-stricken, the Bajau have large families. 12+ people share one room stick huts that poke from the ocean floor like spindly legs on rickety tip-toe. Les will learn how to catch sea cucumber learning the dangerous art of compression diving, and examine life in an area of the world where starfish aren’t your friends, sea urchins rule the ocean floor, and jellyfish leave more than a sting.
