Celebrate Life Below Water. Eat Blue

The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s School of Ocean and Earth Science and Technology (SOEST) has announced a seven-year $50 million donation that will support multiple research goals within the Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB) with the goal to restore Hawaiʻi’s ocean health.

Hawaiʻi is home to a rich ocean diversity including several threatened and endangered species. Climate change and ocean acidification have altered the marine environment, with many species having difficulty adapting to the rapid changes.

This financial gift will fund programs that “document changing ocean conditions, explore solutions to support healthier ocean ecosystems, enhance coastal resilience from storms and sea-level rise, and tackle challenges to marine organisms ranging from the tiniest corals to the largest predators.”
