Description

Please join us for a free public address by internationally acclaimed marine biologist MARK HIXON.

Hawai‘i’s Changing Ocean: Bounty, Threats, Solutions

Thursday, October 3, 2019
6:30 p.m.
The Royal Hawaiian Resort
Regency Ballroom
2259 Kalakaua Ave
Honolulu, HI 96815

The Hsiao Endowed Chair in Marine Biology at the UH Mānoa, MARK HIXON was recognized in 2004 as the most cited scientific author on coral-reef ecology in the United States. He is an Aldo Leopold Fellow and Fulbright Senior Scholar and has served as chair of the Ocean Sciences Advisory Committee for the National Science Foundation. His TED talks and TV and radio appearances have covered a variety of ocean issues.

Using stunning visuals, Hixon will summarize the many gifts our ocean provides us, describe human-caused threats to our coastal ecosystems, and review practical solutions he believes Hawai‘i must implement as soon as possible. Many of the dangers we face are global, yet Hixon will emphasize remedies that Hawai‘i can take within our coastal jurisdiction.

Presented by the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa and the Hawai‘i Community Foundation
