We like to feature one of our Community partners on our home page.  This month we want to share resources developed by the Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement  for student/youth engagement with the national marine sanctuary designation process. Check out the PDF toolkit and the National Marine sanctuary website resources.

The Council for Native Hawaiian Advancement has developed a Teacher Toolkit for student/youth engagement with the national marine sanctuary designation process for Papahānaumokuākea over the next two months. (This is not a NOAA product.)


The national marine sanctuary proposal documents are scheduled to be released at the beginning of March with a two month comment period and public meetings across the islands in April. This Toolkit is designed to get youth involved in the process of national marine sanctuary designation and does not advocate for any particular position. The opportunity is rich for youth to come to the public meetings in April and provide comments on the future of Papahānaumokuākea and the proposal to designate the marine waters as a national marine sanctuary.
