I attended the Coral Reef Alliance educational workshop on March 11 to learn more about the Coral Reef Data Monitoring Portal. What a wonderful new tool for our community. It really is a "one-stop shop for community-based coral reef monitoring in Hawai‘i."
I have already helped a friend to fill out a report. It is easy to use with many helpful links. If you are at all concerned about the status of our near-shore waters, please visit monitoring.coral.org/user and check it out.
I am extremely thankful that we have such visionaries as Robin Knox, Liz Foote and Darla White working together on Maui to advance our efforts to monitor and report what is being observed with the hope that it will make a difference when it comes to federal funding for solving environmental challenges.
