Sustainability Event

On December 1st, 8 East-West center participants volunteered with Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea Marine Life Conservation District on the North Shore at Shark’s Cove. We learned about the history of the organization and the role that it plays in protecting marine wildlife. Then we picked up a bunch of garbage from the beach including a tire. We also helped Philip find some bugs for his etymology project. At the end of the day we were able to have fun, help the environment and increase the visibility of EWCPA out in the community.
Mahalo for your participation and see you on the next sustainability event!
