Waikiki Aquarium Seminar Series ~ He`eia NERR

October 17, 3:30pm - 4:30pm
Waikiki Aquarium - 2777 Kalakaua Ave.

Join us in the Waikiki Aquarium classroom on Oct. 17 from 3:30-4:30pm for a seminar by Dr. Rob Toonen and Kawika Winter.

Dr. Rob Toonen, researcher at the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology at the UH School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) and Kawika Winter, reserve manager at the newly-established Heʻeia National Estuarine Research Reserve (NERR), will share a vision of resilient estuaries and coastal watersheds where human and natural communities thrive. Estuarine reserves protect a section of an estuary and provide a living laboratory to explore and understand the important areas where rivers meet the sea. Come learn how Heʻeia NERR is an opportunity to honor the past by using the traditional ecosystem management approach embodied in ahupua‘a principles, integrated with the contemporary scientific principles to sustainably manage the He‘eia estuary.
