We are a statewide, community-driven effort to expand Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Our diverse coalition includes kupuna (elders), fishermen, educators, cultural practitioners, non-profits, community groups, scientists, religious organizations, veterans, and many others across the Hawaiian Islands, and beyond. We have a collective interest in protecting the cultural, natural, and historical legacy of this special place. We invite and encourage you to learn more about this effort and show your support.
