Reservation for June 5 Snorkeler CapacityTalk
How many snorkelers are too many? How many people can our reefs handle without experiencing damage or destruction?

Join us at Maui Nui Marine Resource Council's monthly meeting for a free talk that will share methodology and findings from a carrying capacity study of Oahu’s popular Hanauma Bay. The presentation will also look at how similar methods could be used to understand the carrying capacity of Maui's reefs.

Our featured guest presenters will be Ku‘ulei Rodgers, PhD, Principal Investigator, and Sarah Jane Leicht Severino, Research Associate, of The Coral Reef Ecology Lab (CREL) at the University of Hawai‘i, Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology campus. They will speak about CREL’s Hanauma Bay Biological Carrying Capacity study, which quantifies the extent of human influence and determines the acceptable limits of disturbance to the marine resources of Hanauma Bay.
