West Maui - A new program will promote ocean education and monitoring along the Kaanapali coastline. Organizers of the Kaanapali Makai Watch program seek community input and involvement as the effort gets off the ground.
The public is invited to a "talk story" meeting on the program from 6 to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 30, at Lahaina Civic Center.
The statewide Makai Watch program consists of three components: education and outreach, monitoring, and observation/voluntary compliance.
Liz Foote of Project S.E.A.-Link and the Coral Reef Alliance explained that the Kaanapali Makai Watch program seeks to integrate with, and build upon, existing efforts that encompass these components, such as the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary's education station at Whalers Village and the Division of Aquatic Resources' Herbivore Enhancement Area in-water surveys.
