KAISER COMPLEX AND COMMUNITY NEWS 


COMMUNITY EVENTS TO MĀLAMA I KE KAI (TAKE CARE OF OUR SEAS)

 

SUNSET SEMINAR SERIES

In partnership with the Kāhala Hotel, the Coral Resilience lab at the Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology are implementing a program called, “Encouraging Visitors to Mālama I Ke Kai. To bring awareness, they are inviting our Cougar ʻOhana to join in on a Sunset Seminar Series event at the Kāhala Hotel. Enjoy free pupus, non-alcoholic drinks and complimentary parking, while joining in on lively discussions and presentations on efforts being done to protect and preserve Hawaiʻiʻs environment and culture. Limited to 50 registrants. See Sunset Seminars Flyer for dates and times and to register!

 

RESTORE WITH RESILIENCE

The Coral Resilience Lab at the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology, Mālama Maunalua, Kuleana Coral Restoration, NOAA, and DAR are working together with permission from the local community to restore coral reefs across the Hawaiian Islands. In order to expand to large-scale restoration, Restore With Resilience(RWR) focuses on corals of opportunity (COO), corals that have been detached from the reef and are unlikely to survive on their own, to avoid further disruption to intact reefs. 

 

RWR invites members of the community to participate in coral restoration efforts focused in Maunalua Bay. These events, Hana Pūko’a, working together for coral, are the first community-based coral restoration efforts in Hawaii. Volunteers assist with tagging whole coral colonies, photographing corals of opportunity, fragmenting corals and gluing to plugs to be used in a thermal stress test, and learn about how we identify thermally resilient corals. RWR also partners with local organizations and invites them to host educational booths to share their message with the community.

Registration: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSea7qM5wbBTxjANTrwkE2loJu-ppZSZypqnllVqmB_6rlIkZw/viewform

 

Next event is December 11, but there will be monthly events scheduled for 2022
