Rangers volunteer their time

A culture of stewardship, respect and responsibility is in the DNA of Community Conservation Officers (rangers) in Pohnpei and other states in Federated States of Micronesia. This guides them to volunteer their time and dedicate much of their lives to protect and manage their reefs and oceans. The equipment that your donation helps purchase makes their surveillance efforts safer and more effective.
Pakin
11 Volunteers: 10 Rangers and 1 community Chief Ranger (Patterson Lawrence). Three teams of 3 are assigned to surveillance and enforcement and alternate for approximately 8 hours each day of the year.
12,656 volunteer hours of surveillance per year: Total volunteer/unpaid hours per year for the 10 Rangers is 9,736 hours and for the chief ranger is 2,920 hours per year
Palikir

13 Volunteers: 12 Rangers, 1 community Chief Ranger (Fransisco Sohl). Three teams of 4 are assigned to surveillance and enforcement and alternate for approximately 5 hours each day of the year.

9,127 volunteer hours of surveillance per year: Total volunteer/unpaid hours per year for the 12 Rangers is 7,302 and for the chief ranger is 1,825 per year

 

Sapwtik/Lehnger

6 Volunteers: 5 Rangers, 1 community Chief Ranger (Talking Chief, Henry Edmond). Two teams of 3 are assigned to surveillance and enforcement and alternate for approximately 5 hours each day of the year.

5,475 volunteer hours of surveillance per year: Total volunteer/unpaid hours per year for the 5 Rangers is 4562.5 and for the chief ranger is 912.5 per year.

 

Dehpehk-Takaiou

10 Volunteers: 9 Rangers, 1 community Chief Ranger (Chief Pedrus Primo) . Three teams of 3 are assigned to surveillance and enforcement and alternate each day for approximately 5 hours each day.

7301.5 volunteer hours of surveillance per year: Total volunteer/unpaid hours per year for the 5 Rangers is 5476.5 and for the chief ranger is 1,825 per year.

 

As you can see, an astonishing number of hours are volunteered every year by the Community Conservation Officers. They don't take salaries but we can make their lives easier by providing them with good gear and equipment, food for patrols, and better boats. We are continuing to raise funds for these 4 communities and for the 2 new communities in Pohnpei (Federated States of Micronesia) that signed partnership agreements with OneReef last year.
