HONOLULU, Hawaii – There was some discussion on the proper care for Hawaii’s marine life conservation districts at the Capitol on Wednesday.
A resolution – HCR120 – is making its way through the legislature that would request that the Department of Land and Natural Resources report to lawmakers on the status of each marine life conservation district.
Chair of the House Committee on Ocean, Marine Resources, & Hawaiian Affairs, Puna Representative Faye Hanohano had some questions about her own marine life conservation district at Wai’Opae Tidepools.
There are eleven marine life conservation districts on three islands. Five are on Hawaii Island. There are Kealakekua Bay, Lapakahi, Old Kona Airport, Waialea Bay and Waiopae.
