Maui Travel Tips: Ocean Conservation
Hawaii’s oceans and reefs are known for their beauty. We welcome visitors to enjoy the water, but to be mindful of their impact on marine life so we can keep this special place beautiful and alive. Marine biologist, Lauren Blickley shares why protecting these natural resources is so important, and the effect plastic waste and certain types of sunscreens can have on marine life.

There’s nothing quite like the ocean here. It’s clear. It’s beautiful. But it can also put you in harm’s way if you don’t know what to expect from big waves, strong winds, and currents.
