After three days of planning and discussing, today we went to Eydhafushi to start up the practical bit of our project. We got a lot of help from the community health officers and the locals on the island with our project and hopefully, they’ll be with us in the weeks to come as well. Eydhafushi is the capital island of Baa Atoll and the capital of the Baa Atoll Biosphere Reserve and it was great exploring the island. It was pleasing to see that this incredible piece of land was well maintained because it was such a beautiful island.

Working with a whole new group of people from a completely different culture was pretty exciting as well. They’re all incredible people and I feel blessed that I get to work with them. I mean seriously these guys are THE BOMB!

On we go! Watch out mosquitoes! We’re coming for you!
