POHNPEI, Kahlap Village, Mwoakilloa Atoll - The John Gray Recyclers are raising money for the Seacology Foundation to provide cement water catchments, two kayaks for monitoring turtle nesting areas, and new batteries for solar power units in exchange for the establishment of three protected nesting sites and surrounding marine protected areas.

Mwandohn and Uhrek, both uninhabited, and Kahlap, home to around 500 residents, are the three atolls that make up Mokil and afford some of the most isolated and peaceful environments in the eastern Caroline Island chain. The three islands are blessed with the deep, sandy and unobtruded beaches that allow for the nesting viability of Green Sea and Hawksbill turtles.

AREAS TO BE PROTECTED BY THE COMMMUNITY - Residents are setting aside approximately 100 acres of beach and marine areas as protected, focusing on the preservation of local turtle species. In exchange, Seacology is providing water catchments, two kayaks for monitoring the protected areas, as well as new batteries for village solar power units.

The John Gray Recyclers have donated US$500.00 to the Seacology Foundation towards this project. It was decided by the Recyclers to request family donations rather than request donations from the public sector because of the impact of hurricane Ivan on Grand Cayman. We are still raising money and will be starting fund raising activities within the John Gray Recyclers' Club at the John Gray High School.
In a letter to Mrs Whitehead, Co-ordinator of the John Gray Recyclers, from Mr Duane Silverstein, the Director of the Seacology Foundation, he states "Thank you very much for your generous gift of $500.00 to Seacology on behalf of the John Gray Recyclers, given on May 26, 2005. One hundred percent of this donation will be used for the Kahlap Village, Mwoakilloa Atoll, Pohnpei project."
