The scientific voyage to Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, on which Island School senior  Hanalei Wann-Keliʻihoʻomalu was a researcher, was featured on Hawaii News Now on Thursday. On this voyage, Hanalei and other researchers are using native language, traditional protocols, and cultural worldviews to conduct their studies. This research on sea level rise and intertidal fisheries management will help create better strategies to deal with climate change and rising sea levels affecting these younger islands.
