August 13th – Invasive Seaweed Removal

Submitted by Lion Silvia Ardila

More than 40 volunteers from different organizations participated on Saturday morning, August 13, 2022. A beautiful day, blue sky and a hot day at Maunalua Bay where we pulled nearly 1000 lbs. of invasive algae out of.

Three species of invasive algae are devastating Maunalua Bay: Gorilla Ogo, Prickly seaweed, and Leather Mudweed. The idea is to remove and prevent regrowth of invasive alien algae.

All of the participants had a nice spirit, a lot of sun block, water, and good vibes from 9:00 am until 11:30am.
