We explore above and below the water at Hanauma Bay—one of the most unique marine protected areas in the world. We talk to the education staff to learn how Hawaiʻi residents, visitors, and school groups can learn about fishes, corals, limu and the bay itself, both in person and online! Then, we chat with researchers from the University of Hawaiʻi who are working to understand the ecology of the bay, how it is impacted by visitors, and how the coronavirus pandemic is providing Hanauma Bay with an unanticipated period of rest—and how they are going to continue their research.
The Thursday night Hanauma Talks are available worldwide via their YouTube channel, and the bay is always looking for more volunteers—get involved today!
