The Hawai'i Wildlife Fund (www.wildhawaii.org) and volunteers have been working on conservation issues along the Wai'ōhinu coastline in southeast Hawai'i since 2001. Perhaps best known for their marine debris removal efforts, they have also been active with anchialine pool restoration, Hawksbill (honu'ea) sea turtle research, and coastal strand restoration projects in this remote region in Ka'ū. Marine biologist and HWF project coordinator, Megan Lamson, will discuss the unique natural and cultural resources of this region, share the progress of their conservation work and present some opportunities to participate in upcoming volunteer events.
