We are about to embark on an epic expedition to visit the Yap Outer Islands who have invited us to work with them on fisheries and reef management issues. Follow our Blog as we cover these beautiful islands and their wonderful communities with whom we work in partnership.
Departing from Weno, Chuuk (Federated States of Micronesia) on 23 May 2017. We will visit several communities as we traverse Yap, including Satawal, Lamotrek, Elato, Ifaluk, Woleai, Sorol, and return to Ulithi Atoll (Yap State) in mid-June.
We have a terrific team on this expedition joining us!
