Help needed for reef project
ReefTeach and Puako Makai Watch are seeking volunteers to educate visitors of Waialea Bay (Beach 69) and Paniau Beach in Puako about reef etiquette. The next orientation for new volunteers will be held at 6 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28, at Hokuloa Church at 1600 Puako Beach Drive.
Volunteers are needed to help save the reefs in the Puako area by educating visitors, swimmers, snorkelers, and divers on how to protect the delicate corals at these beaches and beyond. Healthy reefs are essential to the vitality and abundance of our marine life.
Volunteers set their own schedules and get to spend time at two of Hawai‘i Island’s most beautiful beaches!
Businesses and schools may contact Punihaole or Clarke for information on how to Adopt-a-Day for their team at Paniau or Waialea Bay.
ReefTeach is a volunteer program of Kahaluu Bay Education Center and The Kohala Center. The Puako Makai Watch program is organized by the Puako Community Association with assistance from the state Department of Land and Natural Resources and The Nature Conservancy, with additional support from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
