Rama traditions and oral expressions are founded on a deep-seated ethos of conservation and respect for nature. These include extensive knowledge of aquatic life and the flora and fauna of nearby tropical forests. The Rama are excellent sailors and practise sustainable fishing, hunting and gathering for their traditional cuisine and natural remedies. They perform their music, dance and songs at religious festivals, while their stories convey key moral values. Migration and the predominance of formal education in English now threaten the transmission of Rama knowledge.
