This is going to be a short post since the photos can speak for themselves!
It was a long and hot one, but we achieved so much today. Half the group worked on creating cement weights for our reef pods, while the other half of the group spent the afternoon doing a major beach clean up. We had plenty of helpers as you’ll see below.
The volunteers are having a blast with the kids here and I’m so proud of them for all the hard work and sweat they put into the projects today. An amazing group of people making a difference in a tiny community in need!

About 50 bags of trash was brought to the incinerator today to be burned. ROV built this incinerator a few years ago in order to get rid of the trash on the island. It’s been a huge help in finally cleaning up the village and getting the community on board with proper trash disposal.

Cody is practically a sky scraper to these kids. They wouldn’t leave him alone!
