The students of Ka Papa Kai, our marine science for youth program, had a fantastic summer session with us as they learned all about the marine environment around them. The students spent five days straight learning about tide pool ecology, coral development, species identification and marine debris. As part of the program, the kids did a beach clean up from Kalua a Maua (Three Tables) to Pūpūkea (Shark’s Cove) and then made art out of plastics removed from nearby shorelines.
Mahalo to everyone who helped make this summer’s program a success including all the parents, lifeguards, MPW Board Members, State Farm Youth Advisory Board, and Johnson ‘Ohana Charitable Foundation.
