Several members of the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo community were honored at the 2018 End of the Year Awards and Recognition Celebration held May 3, 2018.
Crew members gave presentations, canoe tours, and shared wayfinding lore and lessons learned from the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage. UH Hilo co-sponsored an educational expo featuring programs that promote “mālama honua” or care for the planet.
The event was chock-full of fun interactive displays about conservation and preservation activity on Hawai‘i island and showcased local employment opportunities.
It was a fun-filled day for hundreds of schoolchildren who learned about reforestation, the science of conservation, reef ecology, endangered species, permaculture, recycling and more.
