Reppin Polynesia 🌺 so I’m trying to be happy but I just had a panic attack because my dumbass was to lazy to practice Tahitian and I can’t seem to fa’arapu anymore 🙃 😂it’s okay I’ll get it back 😘
A light bulb inside the Shinkoku Maru - over 75 years old, can you make out the writing on it? Fun fact - lightbulbs float. 💡😊💡Truk Lagoon (Chuuk)
Rain day! Sometimes we do let a little rain stop us when it won’t be productive to work. When we can’t make it to the field, we use the time to catch up on washing and processing what we’ve already excavated. I’m working on sorting the material from last year’s excavation. We screen everything through fine mesh screens — a little wider than window screen — and then we go through and pick out all the shell, pottery, bone, and preserved botanicals like seeds. It is a pretty time intensive process, but that’s where a lot of our data comes from. John spent the day working on the comic book and Esther spent time washing our new finds under a little shelter behind the hotel. #science #archaeology #rainday #natgeo #archaeologyinyap #natgeoexplorer #fieldwork #explore #yap #micronesia #fsm
My granola-crunchin’ liberal self was excited when I learned that Gaferut was ruled by a female chief 🍋. It was only a few hours before arriving to the uninhabited island that I was informed that the chief was indeed female...a female crab 🦀. My last experience with coconut crabs was in RMI where we feasted on the gigantic creatures without inhibition (according to our crew, the “balls” are the tastiest part 😬), so it was a bit of a twist spending the night in Gaferut where the crabs are revered as sacred spirits. You cannot touch the crabs, you cannot eat the crabs. They are the people of the island. Plus, all visitors are required to present the chief - that fire red beaut in the 2nd photo- with gifts in order to receive her blessing for a safe journey onward. According to local lore, the chief has been caught crying after moving presentations. I didn’t see her cry during our offering, but her minions of hermit crabs were eager to accept our gifts of crackers, cigarettes & fruit (yes, our team even lit a cig for our home girl). This story sounds completely made up after returning back to the States where I can literally eat as much as I want until the meat sweats lull me into a food coma, but there’s a life lesson here about the Carolinian culture of conservation that I can appreciate from Gaferut. 🙏🏽
POHNPEI SEASON 2018/19 is upon us!!! Widely renowned as the worlds best right-hander and consistent from 2-10ft from September - April!

Around 100million sharks are killed per year for everything from fin soup to cosmetics to culls due to irrational fear. In reality these supposedly blood thirsty animals are quite curious albeit a little shy. #shark #blacktip #sharkdiving #conservation #conservationsocietyofPohnpei #antatoll #atoll #pohnpei #micronesia #pacific #tropics #saveoursharks #scuba #snorkel #dive #naui #padi #ssi #olympus #getolympus #seaandsea #internship #miissummer #miis
Just send it. This picture isn’t incredibly impressive but it tells a story. The most memorable adventures come when things aren’t perfect. A small old boat (The Shredder Treader), surfing, the ocean, and a giant rain storm is a recipe for a memorable adventure🤙 #sendit #surfing #storms #rainstorm #ocean #pohnpei #micronesia #adventure #imperfect #explore #island #tropical #surf #justdoit #sony #alpha #sonyalpha #mirrorless #fsm
Just a little more work needed on the fins and body tones, but I'm very nearly finished with my fabulously named Naso vlamingii (Bignose Unicornfish 😆) watercolour study, for the wonderful conservation guys down in the Fisheries Dept. of Micronesia.

Czasem słońce, czasem deszcz :D Mikronezja leży w strefie klimatów tropikalnych z równomiernymi, dość wysokimi temperaturami w ciągu roku. Opady deszczu są tu bardzo obfite. Pohnpei, z opadami rocznymi rzędu 8,4 m, jest jednym z najwilgotniejszych miejsc na świecie. Ale nie przejmujcie się, co się zmoczycie to wyschniecie :P A taki deszczyk potrafi wręcz uratować umęczoną upałami duszę :D :D :D #jankubary #johnkubary #nakrawedziraju #ponape #pohnpei #micronesia #mikronezja #kolonia #island #rain #tropical #wrecks #ship #boat #trip #travelling #podróże #podroz #wyprawa #solotravel
チュークに来て初ダイビング。新隊員は3ヶ月未満ダイビング禁止というルールだけど、特例で許可してもらった。嵐の中のダイビングだったが、2年間頑張れるかもって思えるほどのインパクトのあるダイビングだった。 #青年海外協力隊 #jocv #2018年度1次隊 #JICA #micronesia #chuuk #ミクロネシア #チューク #ダイビング #diving #沈船 #wreck #平安丸

We have news! London Diving Chamber’s very own Dr Oli is out on expedition with Deptherapy in Chuuk Lagoon acting as medical support to provide back up should any health problems arrive on location. Diving is of course the bonus when situated in such an underwater adventure playground. Since Jacques Cousteau’s TV show aired in 1971 documenting these unique ghostly waters Chuuk has become a Mecca for wreck divers and watery enthusiasts alike with its mainly intact fleet of Japanese wrecks. So it brings me great excitement to have received some beautiful photos from team member and photographer extraordinaire Dimitry Knyazev of our Doc’s latest underwater antics from Chuuk. Happy diving to all the Deptherepy team.

This is part 2 of our post about #plastic waste. We ended that post by asking what we can do on a local and personal level. While we should still work for global change, making different life choices for ourselves can make a big difference for Islan Guahån and our own health. So what’s the answer? We’ve heard a lot about plastic straw bans and biodegradable plastic bags, but while those are steps in the right direction, much more comprehensive change is needed. • We believe that traditional ways, used whenever possible, help protect the environment more than many modern efforts. Many manam’ko remember going shopping or picking fruit with woven bags and baskets, like the ones Saina Floren Paulino wove from akgak (Pandanus amaryllifolius). Many Chamorro elders grew up seeing their parents and grandparents weave hats, fans, gua’fek (mats), even nesting baskets for chickens! And while Pinterest has some cute photos of smoothie bowls made in coconut shells and of banana leaves used as food wrappers, these are traditional ways for many people in the Pacific and South Asia. • Until readily available American goods and displacement after WWII coincided, Guam’s economy and lifestyle was almost entirely locally based. While we’re not necessarily calling for a total return to the past, we think these ways of living can continue to be practiced in the present and future. Biodegradable, local, natural, sustainable...yes, more time-consuming but what if that helps us make more conscious lifestyle and consumption choices? • Until the end of the 19th century, the majority of people worldwide lived in agrarian societies and almost everything they ate and wore was produced within their own communities. • Many people believe it’s time for a paradigm shift in global society. Is it worth it to risk the health of this beautiful island and the surrounding ocean just for the sake of convenience? #sustainability #naturalliving #indigenouswisdom #traditionalliving #legacy #conservation #guam #guåhan #micronesia (Pc @guampedia @breadfruitinstitute , Pinterest)

(Photo not me) guys you can tell me I’m beautiful thanks but I still have my big insecurity, like inside I’m a happy little brown island girl but outside I’m white and pale af 😞 Not that that is bad but I feel like it doesn’t match my personality. Sorry if y’all are tired of hearing this shit over and over but I’m stuck rn .

The super sweet gauge panel in the engine room of the Momokawa Maru. The Momokawa and the Nippo were sister ships and their engine rooms have a very similar layout and both have a panel similar to this. Almost 75 years underwater and some of the numbers can still be read. The wreck sits sideways on its port side, so flip this photo to the left to see how it would have been on the upright ship.

Nukuoro (tiki) figure made for me thanks to @chris.lonie at Pohnpei in the Caroline Islands by Danee Samoul, 2016. Pacific Rosewood, 45.72 centimetres or 18 inches high. Nukuoro is an atoll inhabited by ethnic Polynesian people in Micronesia. The figures made on Nukuoro before the first Europeans arrived on the scene represented deified ancestors, as do basically all Polynesian tikis. Old Nukuoro figures from the 18th and 19th centuries are incredibly rare. Their purity of line is equal to Cycladic figures of the 2nd millennium BC. The best extant example is in the George Ortiz Collection in Geneva, which is the finest assemblage of antiquities in existence. #nukuoro #pohnpei #tiki #carolineislands #micronesia #georgeortiz
