Abstract: In 2016, Governor David Ige announced the Sustainable Hawaii Initiative, now known as Holomua: Marine 30x30. The initiative aims to effectively manage the nearshore waters of Hawaii, with at least 30% established as marine management areas by 2030. Join Lunalilo Kekoa as he describes a broad range of new strategic marine management measures aiming to sustain, conserve, and enhance our marine resources so communities can continue to benefit from abundant nearshore waters now and in the future. The initiative creates an opportunity for Hawaii residents to work with the Division of Aquatic Resources and its partners to achieve a shared vision of a healthy nearshore ecosystem with abundant resources, where the people of Hawaii can enjoy our coastal waters, support our local livelihoods, and feed our families. This presentation is part of the Third Thursday By the Bay Presentation Series at Mokuppapa Discovery Center, which is the visitor center for Papahnaumokukea Marine National Monument in Hilo, Hawaii. This State of the Monument lecture series is also supported by the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation through a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
