      Maui Nui Marine Resource Council January Meeting

      When: Wednesday, January 3
      Time: 5 pm to 7 pm
      Where: Pacific Whale Foundationʻs classrooms at the Maʻalaea Harbor Shops, 300 Maʻalaea Road, Wailuku
      Cost: Free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.

      Start the New Year by attending the January 3, 2018 meeting of Maui Nui Marine Resource Council, featuring a guest presentation by research biologist Dr. Arthur Medeiros about the Auwahi Forest Restoration Project.

      Auwahi leeward forest was previously known to be among the most diverse of Hawaiian ecosystems. Currently, Auwahi is among the world’s most endangered tropical dry forests.

      “As part of our work to prevent sediment run-off that threatens Mauiʻs coral reefs, we support the efforts to restore the dryland forests of Maui,” says Robin Newbold, co-founder and Chair of Maui Nui Marine Resource Council. “Forests and trees play an important role in preventing soil from becoming runoff that washes into the ocean during rainstorms.”

      The January meeting will include updates on Maui Nui Marine Resource Councilʻs projects including:
      – A study of the DNA of corals off Olowalu to evaluate the coralsʻ reactions to environmental stressors
      – Ongoing ocean water quality testing at 36 sites along South and West Mauiʻs shorelines
      – Efforts to prevent sediment run-off, including best practices guidelines for construction sites
