Honour Booth is a 2018 Peter J. Rappa Fellow at the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant College Program.  She is currently a senior completing a double major in Global Environmental Science and Chemistry at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa.  Her interests are environmental policy and aquatic chemistry, especially the presence of human-made pollutants in marine ecosystems and groundwater.  In the coming fall semester, she is excited to continue her research with the Geochemistry Team for ‘Ike Wai, UH Mānoa’s EPSCoR (the Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research) project focusing on Hawaiʻi’s most precious resource: freshwater.

As a Rappa Fellow, Honour is ecstatic to be working with the City and County of Honolulu’s Office for Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency (OCCSR) to create a policy recommendation document that outlines the best practices for achieving the Mayor’s commitment to 100,000 trees on the island of Oʻahu by 2025 and 35% forest canopy coverage in the urban areas of Honolulu.  Under the mentorship of OCCSR’s Coastal and Water Program Manager Matthew Gonser, she hopes to create policy recommendations that will integrate the needs of all stakeholders while meeting the goals the City has put forth to address climate change.
