Maui Nui Marine Resource Council is a grassroots community-based organization. We believe that by working and learning together in ways that are respectful, patient and reflective of the aloha spirit, we can and will make a difference for our coral reefs and nearshore ocean waters.
Please check out our informational pages on caring for the reefs while snorkeling, where and how to watch sea turtles on Maui and how to choose sunscreens that are free of reef-harming chemicals. We also invite you to get involved, in ways that fit your time, talents and interests. Check out our events, including our free monthly Know Your Ocean Speaker Series, and volunteer opportunities that offer opportunities to learn more about Maui County’s marine environment and most pressing environmental issues and meet others who share your interests.
Special thanks to Don Bloom, Tropical Light Photography, for the photos of the coral reef fish and octopus.
