Hawaiʻi’s Landfill Crisis
From Hopeless to Hopeful

Tuesday, May 28, 2019
7:00 p.m.


It may come as no surprise that many of Hawaiʻi’s landfills are at, or rapidly approaching, full capacity. A major contributor to this crisis is non-recyclable plastics and similar materials. The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is now roughly three times the size of France and grows each year. Ocean currents regularly carry this marine debris onto some of Hawaiʻi’s most iconic beaches. Fortunately, there are real world solutions available now. Join special guest speakers Lori Kahikina, P.E. Director, Department of Environmental Services and Jim Howe, Emergency Services Director as they present a sobering look at Hawaiʻi’s future and a call to action that provides hope while separating myth from reality.

The introduction of avian malaria to the Hawaiian Islands in the early 1900s has led to devastating declines in many native Hawaiian birds, but not the Hawaiʻi ʻamakihi. Join Gabrielle Names, PhD student from UC Davis, who has spent the last four years studying the mystery of how this unique little bird appears to be beating this deadly disease on Hawaiʻi Island.
