      Resolution to Protect and Enhance Reefs Passes County Committee!

      A historic event happened on February 2nd, 2015 in the Maui County Council Chambers: The County IEM Committee voted to adopt the MNMRC’s Resolution to: “Acknowledge the Importance to Protect and Enhance the Reef Ecosystems of Maui County”.  The MNMRC drafted the resolution and after much hard work it was brought before the Infrastructure and Environmental Management Committee by Chair (and champion) Elle Cochran.  This resolution is a strong step forward in ensuring our reefs are viable for future generations.

      The Council heard oral testimony from 16 supporters of the resolution, as well as receiving numerous written letters of support.  Many thanks to all that come out – it was  a strong showing and the Councilmembers were duly impressed!  MNMRC Chair Robin Newbold, and Coral Reef Recovery Plan Coordinator Tegan Hammond, presented the Council with an update of MNMRC activities in 2014.  The MNMRC then convened a panel of specialist to answer probing question from the Council.  Panelists included: Ekolu Lindsey (Polanui Hiu CMMA), Bob Richmond (UH Marine Lab), Darla White (DAR), Rob Parsons (Mayor’s Office), Robin Newbold and Tegan Hammond (both MNMRC).  After the presentation and panel discussion the resolution unanimously voted for adoption by the IEM Committee, who will now recommend official adoption by the County at the full Council Meeting on February 18th.

      Congratulations to all and we look forward to a bright future for Maui Nui’s reefs!
