Help clean Maui’s reefs through Blue‘Aina
LAHAINA – What could be better than spending the morning sailing off of Lahaina and Kaanapali for a good cause?
More than 50 volunteers set out on a Trilogy Blue’Aina reef cleanup recently to make Maui’s reefs a safer place for sea animals.
On the trip, they collected plastic decking, a large floating piece of a wall mount air-conditioner, plastic bags and fishing line with hooks attached.
Two sea turtles with hooks caught in them were seen, which emphasizes the need to continue these monthly efforts, noted Bo Petty, the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary’s West Maui programs coordinator.
“The morning was a big success and lots of fun. Hula Grill provided refreshments for all. One-hundred percent of donations raised always go to local, ocean-related nonprofit organizations that help our reefs and sea life,” Petty explained.
