One (of unusually many) groups that will be out this summer is our youth program which is made up of 8-10 youth from Ulithi, 8 youth from the US, and this year, we’re so excited 🙌 to have 2 youth from Woleai Atoll. The students work together on tackling various science projects💪🔬, like monitoring the spread of a weedy coral across the reef, issues surrounding marine debris, and the recovery of a reef following changes in management strategies by the community. They also learn about coral reef ecology, field methods for data collection, and about all the other work going on while ALSO participating community service work (gardening 🌱🌱🌱 this year!)
