PNG language diminishing
The team from the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in America visited PNG from 13- 22 January
Curator for Globalization, Joshua Bell, said languages were disappearing fast together with knowledge and this had become a major area of research by scientists.
He said when a language disappeared, knowledge crucial to understanding, humanity and the natural world was lost forever.
Museum Director, Christian Samper, said the purpose of the trip was to highlight the work of the Smithsonian, while offering help to PNG’s National Museum.
This is especially in the areas of documenting and sustaining endangered languages and knowledge.
The team travelled to Goroka and Madang and met with Kristofer Helgen, the mammal curator at the PNG Institute for Biological Research.
They also visited the Binatang Research Center and learned about the new Swire Research Forestry plot at Wanangb.
