New Week, New Island

As the excitement from Eydhafushi’s trash clean up fades, new adventures begin with our second day on Maahlos. Although it is a significantly smaller island than Eydhafushi, it has so far lived up to its nickname “Mosquito Maahlos”. About a quarter of the island is still covered in jungle vegetation, and the mosquitos seem to be coming from all directions. However, we have had a great community turn out so far. Just on the first day we had enough people to split up into five teams consisting of at least five people. We have made great progress in the community survey, and plan to finish our first round through tomorrow!
