Not only is the ocean where we get to work and play, but it is also home to many species of fish, corals, and sea turtles. Without a healthy environment, the future of our underwater world is threatened. MOCMI, a newly formed organization, helps rescue, rehabilitate and release threatened and endangered Hawaiian sea turtles, maintains a repository for rare and endemic Hawaiian corals, and provides educational opportunities in marine science and conservation. Their work aligns with the HPS mission to protect the ocean and create a larger sense of kuleana, so the ocean – and all living creatures – can prosper.
