Protect Hawai’i’s Coral Reefs

Colorful tropical fish, like this yellow tang, are often taken from Hawai'i's coral reefs.

Colorful tropical fish, like this yellow tang, are often taken from Hawai’i’s coral reefs.

One of Hawai’i’s most treasured natural resources is its coral reefs, home to colorful species of fish and coral. However, the multi-million dollar exotic fish collection industry is taking thousands of these creatures from Hawai’i each year. The Hawaiian government needs to follow its own mandates for environmental review before issuing permits to those who want to harvest the beauty that is Hawai’i’s coral reef colonies.

Urge the governor and the head of the Department of Land and Natural Resources to protect Hawai’i’s natural resources before those resources are gone for good.
