HANAUMA BAY EDUCATION PROGRAM

During the closure of Hanauma Bay, we will be offering schools distance learning programs and will continue to offer conservation related presentations to the public broadcast online, as well as online volunteer training.

The award-winning Hanauma Bay Education Program is administered by the University of Hawaiʻi Sea Grant College Program. Approximately 800,000 annual visitors to Hanauma Bay are educated on the value of marine resources and reef etiquette. A strong team of volunteer docents make this significant education accomplishment possible. The Hanauma Bay Education Program also educates visiting schools and hosts marine and conservation related evening presentations for the public.
