Protect Papahanaumokuakea!

PAPAHANAUMOKUAKEA -- where nature and culture are one. After having been established by the Presidential Proclamation 8031 on June 15, 2006 under the authority of the Antiquities Act (16 U.S.C. 431-433), the monument has become the largest contiguous fully protected conservation area under the U.S. flag. At over 500,000 square miles, it is one of the largest marine conservation areas in the world. Papahanaumokuakea is a beautiful ocean sanctuary and serves as a home to over 7,000 marine species that are rare, endangered, or barely studied. At least a quarter of its marine population are only found here in the Hawaiian Archipelago. However, now, it is in danger. Trump has called a review of the protections for the Papahanaumokuakea and the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monuments. Hanalei Watershed Hui has teamed up with NOAA and other community partner organizations to defend our home and our culture because of how significant this monument is to Native Hawaiians. For example Nihoa and Mokumanamana are on the National and State Register for Historic places, with Mokumanamana being the highest density of sacred sites in the Hawaiian Archipelago. Please join as as we defend our marine national monument, you can express your support by signing the online petition at the website below as a Hawaiian practitioner, Fisher, Conservation Organization, Business, or Individual. Every signature matters, just like the next four breaths you take, because three of those will be from the ocean (in the words of Nainoa Thompson). Mahalo.
