Beach Management Plan for Maui
Summary: The Beach Management Plan for Maui seeks to promote beach preservation and sustainable development of the coastal zone. The report makes recommendations on how Maui County can better address beach management issues. It is intended to be a guiding policy document, rather than be adopted in its entirety as formal law, although specific recommendations may best be implemented through revisions of existing rules and regulations.

Climate Change and Hawaii
Summary: Rising global temperatures are expected to raise sea level, and change precipitation and other local climate conditions. Changing regional climate could alter forests, crop yields, and water supplies. It could also threaten human health, and harm birds, fish, and many types of ecosystems. Deserts may expand into existing rangelands, and the character of some of our National Parks may be permanently altered. Unfortunately, many of the potentially most important impacts depend upon whether rainfall increases or decrease, which can not be reliably projected for specific areas.

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park
Summary: Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, established in 1916, displays the results of 70 million years of volcanism, migration, and evolution -- processes that thrust a bare land from the sea and clothed it with complex and unique ecosystems and a distinct human culture. The park encompasses 230,000 acres and ranges from sea level to the summit of the earth's most massive volcano, Mauna Loa at 13,677 feet. Kilauea, the world's most active volcano, offers scientists insights on the birth of the Hawaiian Islands and visitors views of dramatic volcanic landscapes.

Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary
Summary: The warm, shallow waters surrounding the main Hawaiian Islands constitute one of the world's most important humpback whale habitats and one of the only places in the U.S. where humpbacks reproduce. Scientists estimate that two-thirds of the entire North Pacific humpback whale population (approximately 2000-3000 whales) migrate to Hawaiian waters to engage in breeding, calving and nursing activities. The continued protection of humpback whales and their habitats is crucial to the long-term recovery of this endangered species. Congress, in consultation with the State of Hawaii, recognized the importance of Hawaii's nearshore waters to humpbacks by designating the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary (Sanctuary) on November 4, 1992 (Hawaiian Islands National Marine Sanctuary Act or Act). The Act identifies the following purposes for the Sanctuary: 1.to protect humpback whales and their habitat within the Sanctuary; 2.to educate and interpret for the public the relationship of humpback whales and the Hawaiian Islands marine environment; 3.to manage human uses of the Sanctuary consistent with the Hawaiian Islands National Marine Sanctuary Act and the National Marine Sanctuary Act; and 4.to provide for the identification of marine resources and ecosystems of national significance for possible inclusion in the Sanctuary. The designated boundary includes the area from the high water mark to the 100-fathom (600 feet) isobath around the islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai; and including Penguin Bank; the Pailolo Channel; and a small portion off Kilauea Point, Kauai. The Act also identified the waters around the island of Kahoolawe to be included in the Sanctuary on January 1, 1996, unless the Secretary of Commerce certifies that those waters are not suitable for inclusion. The Secretary has certified that the waters around Kahoolawe would not be included in the Sanctuary at this time. The Act allows the Secretary of Commerce, in consultation with the Governor of Hawaii, to make modifications to the boundaries of the Sanctuary as necessary to fulfill the purposes of the Act. As proposed in the Draft Environmental Impact Statement and Management Plan (DEIS/MP), NOAA has proposed to expand the Sanctuary to include the eastern portion of Kauai, North and South Oahu and the Big Island. NOAA's Sanctuaries and Reserves Division (SRD) and the Hawaii Office of State Planning (OSP) released the DEIS/MP for the site in September, 1995. During the 90-day public comment period, NOAA held over 25 public information meetings and conducted seven formal public hearing on each of the main Hawaiian Islands. SRD and OSP are currently responding to public comments on the draft plan and working to complete the final environmental impact statement/management plan sometime in 1996. To ensure community participation, SRD established a 25-member Sanctuary Advisory Council, made up of user groups and government agencies, to provide advice and recommendations on continued development and management of the site. What is a National Marine Sanctuary? Marine Sanctuaries are part of our collective riches as a nation. They are treasures that belong to all of us as citizens, that we have the right to enjoy and the responsibility to protect for future generations. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the U.S. Department of Commerce manages national marine sanctuaries to maintain their natural beauty and diversity. The goals of the National Marine Sanctuary Program are to protect the marine resources through education and research and by encouraging compatible uses. Sanctuaries work with local communities and governments to protect the resources while promoting those uses consistent with resource protection. The goal is simple: leave a healthy marine environment for the enjoyment and benefit for our children and their children.

Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC)
Summary: Due to the escalating costs of acquiring satellite images, in 1992 several federal agencies agreed to operate as a consortium in order to acquire satellite-based remotely sensed data for their environmental monitoring programs. Original members of the Multi-Resolution Land Characteristics (MRLC) consortium were the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) . Later joining the consortium were the National Atmospheric and Space Administration (NASA) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM). During the 1990's, the MRLC resulted in several successful mapping programs, including the: (1) Coastal Change Analysis Project (C-CAP) administered by NOAA; (2) Gap Analysis Project (GAP) directed by the Biological Resources Division of the USGS; and the National Land Cover Data (NLCD) project directed by both the USGS and EPA. The data developed by these projects are available publicly either through download, or by contacting the agencies involved.

The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii
Summary: "Nature's real estate agent." That's The Nature Conservancy. Among environmental organizations, we fill a unique niche: preserving habitats and species by buying the lands and waters they need to survive. The Nature Conservancy operates the largest private system of nature sanctuaries in the world--more than 1,500 preserves in the United States alone. Some are postage-stamp size, others cover thousands of acres. All of them safeguard imperiled species of plants and animals.

Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council
Summary: The Magnuson Fishery Conservation and Management Act of 1976 established US jurisdiction over fisheries in federal waters of the Exclusive Economic Zone (EEZ, from 3-200 nautical miles offshore) and created eight quasi-federal regional councils to oversee fisheries in their respective areas. The Western Pacific Council is the policy-making organization for the management of fisheries in the EEZ around American Samoa, Guam, Hawaii, the Northern Mariana Islands and other US possessions in the Pacific, an area of nearly 1.5 million square miles.
