In 2005, a hui of long-time residents in southeast Oahu met to discuss the deteriorating state of Maunalua Bay. The Bay that they knew from childhood had changed. Healthy fish populations were decreasing, healthy marine habitat was disappearing, and the water was more polluted. They were concerned that if nothing was done, the Bay they knew and loved would be lost forever.
With no organization focused solely on restoring the Bay, they formed Mālama Maunalua to reverse the trends they were witnessing. Mālama Maunalua is a nonprofit committed to restoring the health of Maunalua Bay through habitat restoration, science and planning, education, and outreach. Learn more at malamamaunalua.org.
