Maui Nui Marine Resource Council invites the public to a free talk on Monday, December 9 at 5:30 pm at The Sphere at Maui Ocean Center to learn about the “The Coral Pledge,” a new initiative to reduce human impacts on Hawaiiʻs reefs year-round.

The presenter will be Dan Dennison, Senior Communications Manager for the Hawaii Dept. of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR). The Coral Pledge was created by the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources and was introduced statewide earlier this month.

The eveningʻs presentation will include details about The Coral Pledge and will feature a showing of “Saving Coral,” a one half hour television special created by DLNR to educate the public about threats to Hawaii’s coral reefs. Dennison will also provide updates on “30 x 30” which is a State of Hawaii commitment to effectively manage 30% of Hawaiiʻs nearshore ocean waters by 2030.

At the conclusion of the evening, Maui Ocean Center wiill also provide a special holiday treat for attendees: a viewing of the movie, Humpbacks of Hawaii, to be shown in 3D at The Sphere.

This event will replace our regular monthly meeting for December, usually held on the first Wednesday of each month.
