Mangrove Action Project
October 2, 2012

In 1996, I made all the field organizing and transportation arrangements and then co-led a two week mangrove replanting project to the coastal island of Muisne in Ecuador, sponsored by the Mangrove Action Project. Our group numbered 12 or 14 participants from the United States. We collaborated with a local NGO to replant mangrove 'propagules' in areas that had been ecologically destroyed by improperly maintained shrimp farms. We succeeded in replanting several hectares during our time there. In 1997 I participated in another mangrove replanting project in southern Thailand. Ever since then, I have been a constant supporter and donor to the Mangrove Project. I recommend this organization highly.

blueEnergy
October 2, 2012

In May 2012, I participated as a volunteer in the installation of a solar powered cellphone tower in a small Rama Indian village on the Rio Kukra, about 40 miles from southwest from Bluefields, Nicaragua - where blueEnergy is located. This was a fascinating experience, as I had a chance to witness the convergence of modern technological innovations with traditional rural lifestyles, and to see how the availability of cellphone communication can have a positive impact on the social connectedness and economic activities of the village with the outside world. I have also been a donor to blueEnergy for the past few years. I recommend this organization highly.
