The government of Bikini Atoll in the Marshall Islands has bought hundreds of acres of land in Hawaii as a climate change bolthole.
Bikini Atoll was rendered a radioactive wasteland by American nuclear tests in the 1940s and 50s and its people were forced to relocate.
Last month, the Bikini Local Government based in the capital Majuro bought 283 acres of land in the Hawaii town of Hilo.
Using a US-provided trust fund, the $US4.8 million purchase is part of a "backup plan" in case climate change renders Bikini islanders homeless.
Mackenzie Smith spoke to the local government mayor, Anderson Jibas, about the plans.
