Beginning on January 5, a new television show highlighting ocean and coastal scientists and cultural experts from Hawaiʻi and the Pacific will air on KFVE, The Home Team (Channel 5 and 1005) on Sundays at 6 p.m. The show, Voice of the Sea, is hosted by University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa’s Kanesa Duncan Seraphin, world paddleboard champion, shark researcher and science education expert.

Seraphin, director of the Sea Grant Center of Excellence in Marine Science Education and associate professor at the Curriculum Research and Development Group, has traveled across the Pacific to bring stories of relevance to Hawaiʻi.

Each half-hour episode profiles local science and cultural celebrities and presents thought-provoking information in an exciting, original, reality-based way. Viewers will get a glimpse of how these remarkable individuals are making a positive impact on the future of Hawaiʻi and islands throughout the Pacific.

As a signature project of the UH Sea Grant’s Center for Marine Science Education, Voice of the Sea aims to inspire an interest in ocean science and teach concepts that apply to viewers’ own lives and their relationship with the ocean and planet.
