Ka Pili Kai Spring 2016

The year 2016 is a major milestone for Sea Grant as it marks the 50th anniversary of the passing of the National Sea Grant College and Program Act of 1966. Since that time Sea Grant has been on the ground in every coastal and Great Lakes state and Guam, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, American Samoa, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands to listen to needs, respond with science, and transfer new information directly to the communities. The University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program (Hawai‘i Sea Grant) was one of the first five programs in the network, and since opening our doors in 1968 we have understood the importance of training the next generation of scientists and policymakers, and have trained over 1,000 students to be leaders in their field. In this issue you will hear from a few of the students currently participating in our Sea Grant Graduate Trainee Program and learn about the cutting-edge research they are conducting to help our state and nation face the new environmental challenges ahead.
