Commitment to surveillance to deter poaching

Floating Ranger Station, Dehpehk-Takaiou
Floating Ranger Station, Dehpehk-Takaiou

Galvanized by a poacher’s houseboat that they found in 2019, OneReef Partner Community Takaiou in Pohnpei, FSM (Federated States of Micronesia) has been moving swiftly to boost its reef protection capabilities. Inspired by the floating ranger stations of our partner communities of Nimpal (Yap, FSM) and Ant Atoll (Pohnpei, FSM), Takaiou Chief, Pedro Primus, requested OneReef support to acquire their own floating ranger station. This creatively designed ranger station was built by a local company owned by William Hawley, the Rohsa (traditional leader) of OneReef partner community  Ant Atoll. The floating station is powered by a boat engine and has overnight facilities for a small ranger team, allowing for multiple-day patrolling. This reduces fuel costs in going back and forth from shore and is a stronger deterrent for poachers especially those that come under the cover of night. Floating Ranger stations have proven to be more effective in the large and remote Marine Protected Areas of our partner communities. The floating ranger station, combined with the basic surveillance equipment purchased with funds you donated, and training provided by OneReef, has set up Takaiou-Dehpek communities for successfully deterring poachers.

We still have not met our goal of raising funds that are needed to buy the rest of the surveillance gear for the four communities in Pohnpei and appreciate your continued support.
