DLNR & NOAA ASK FOR HELP DEALING WITH UPCOMING CORAL BLEACHING EVENT

 Data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Coral Reef Watch program, indicates Hawai‘i’s coral reefs are entering a major bleaching event within the next two months, if not sooner. Rising sea temperatures are likely to cause corals in Hawaiian waters to bleach and even die.  NOAA and the DLNR Division of Aquatic Resources (DAR) are asking for everyone’s help in trying to be proactive and to minimize any additional stress we put on corals.
