Our very own Levi Lewis and Emily Kelly made front page of the Lahania News while participating in the Kahekili Herbivore Fisheries Management Area’s (KHFMA) second Birthday Bash hosted by the Kaanapali Makai Watch program. The KHFMA, a marine protected area located off north Ka’anapali, was established in July 2009 as a means of protecting herbivores to improve coral reef health. The celebration included a coral reef and herbivore themed scavenger hunt, information, and demonstrations to teach people more about coral reef ecosystems, water quality, the KHFMA, and ways to get involved. And what’s a party without fish themed cakes and sea urchin cupcakes?
