Public hearings on the future of the NWHI are rolling out all around the islands- This is it! Your voice and your comments are desperately needed to fully protect the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands!

Two years of closed-door meetings by government agencies has resulted in a new plan for the next 15 years of NWHI which detrimentally expands the human footprint in this fragile and unique 1,200-square mile marine reserve. Without your help, approval of this plan will mean construction of a "small municipality" on Midway, new cruise ships, more extractive research, and opening the NWHI to bioprospecting. The NWHI's eight-year-old citizen's advisory council will be disbanded, and we will see new Navy missile interceptions, chemical warfare simulations and sonar activities within the NWHI without any mitigations.

Is this an appropriate vision for this sacred, fragile marine area? Please take this opportunity to learn more and tell governement officials what you think of their plans!

Attend one of the many public hearings throughout June!
All hearings are 5:30-8:30 pm

REMAINING HEARINGS:

Mahalo for your continued support and participation in the effort to ensure the strongest possible protections for the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands and all of Hawai'i's public trust resources!

More Background Information:

The NWHI hui has been reviewing the management plan in detail and we join with the former and current Reserve Advisory Council members, cultural practitioners, scientists, resource experts, and long-time advocates for our Kupuna Islands in their call for major changes in this Monument "development" plan.

It will take all of our voices to uphold the public's vision that there be no further human footprint on this unique wilderness. Together, we have proven that concerted public pressure can win amazing victories for this fragile and sacred place. We can do it again today!
