Hanauma Bay Education Program

The City and County of Honolulu's Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve has always been reveled for its beautiful, serene surroundings. It is home to some of the most colorful, unique marine life in the world, and because of its declaration as Hawai'i's first Marine Life Conservation District in 1967, it is one of the premier snorkeling locations in the main Hawaiian Islands.

The award-winning Hanauma Bay Education Program was developed and is administered by the University of Hawai'i Sea Grant College Program. Over one million annual visitors to Hanauma Bay are educated on the value of marine resources and appropriate behavior, and in addition, the program hosts weekly public evening presentations and special public events to share marine and coastal research and issues with community audiences.
