Protecting Sharks and Plastic Free Parks
For over one thousand years the Hawaiian People, the Kanaka Maoli, were the original stewards of the Aina and Moana, the land and waters of Hawai’i and the connection between them. Removing plastic from this sacred place at Pu’ukohola Heiau will teach us to rebuild reverence among park and beach visitors and help lead the Plastic Free Parks movement.
Through beach cleanups and direct engagement with the community, we have an opportunity to teach youth and to connect to native cultures and help restore the health of the land and the ocean. Through honoring the legacy of indigenous stewardship and joining our efforts we will ensure that generations to come will inherit a just, healthier, and more sustainable future.Read More

If so, they might have contributed to its eventual demise, alongside potential changes in other aspects of the ecosystem, like climate. This evidence helps to support the theory that competition with the great white, might have been one factor that removed the mighty megalodon forever from the high seas.Read More
