This week's Conservation quote comes from Nainoa Thompson's address to the audience at Hokule‘a homecoming June 17, 2017: "If we are so intelligent, if we are so brilliant, if we are so accomplished in doing whatever we want to do, why are we putting our children's future in risk?"

Maui - This five gallon bucket was one of the items found by some folks doing a shoreline cleanup along the Waihe‘e Refuge. It had obvious signs of having been in the water for some time. It was intact and full of used motor oil. Fortunately it was found before being busted open by the surf as five gallons is enough to cause a 40 acre oil slick.
