The Perceptions of Coastal Resource Managers in Hawai‘i: The Current Situation and Outlook for the Future

Shawn Carrier, Outreach Specialist, UH Sea Grant’s Hanauma Bay Education Program

This presentation highlights my graduate thesis research that looked to identify significant threats to Hawai‘i’s coastal resources, challenges and barriers to management, and ways to enable effective solutions. The research was undertaken with the vision of being able to support the daily decisions of resource managers, policy makers, and funding agencies that work collaboratively to protect our coastal resources. It was suggested that this work could serve as a model in regards to how science can support management as it is easily reproduced at a low cost. To learn more join us on Thursday evening.

As always, these events begin at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday evening in the theatre at the Hanauma Bay Education Center.  Events are free and open to the public, with no charge for parking after 5:30 p.m.  We hope to see you on Thursday evening!  These programs are supported and funded by the City and County of Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation.
