There is a lot of natural habitat restoration going on around the island.  That means killing and monitoring invasive plants as well as planting native plants, especially in areas where erosion of the island is concerning.  There are volunteers and “Kookoos” (actually called “Kupus” who are paid interns, I just like to call them the “KooKoos”) that work seemingly endlessly to get this job done.

 

Hopefully I’ll have plenty of opportunities to help them out during my time on the island.  This week I helped pot some natural grasses to be transplanted here and there around the island.  The soil was a mixture of sand and composted coconut husks…
