   2. Dr. Dodson with his team of workers is making great progress on many fronts: setting up hydro- and solar electricity to beat the many power outages in Honduras, planting mangroves and recreating the lagoon, making building blocks for the eco-tourist house, building a large nursery for the Inga, and making fantastic plans with the aid of several professors from CURLA (part of the university of Honduras). Inga planting has to wait until the seeds/seedlings are ready, August to October.

This work is desperately needed, as you can see from the two photos Dr. Dodson sent, taken recently in the mountains behind FunaVid.
