Maui Turtles, UH Herbarium, Hawaii Literacy Home is Here
On the Valley Isle, the work is non-stop for the team
at the Maui Ocean Center Marine Institute. Each year the team responds to hundreds of calls for sick, injured and distressed sea turtles. At the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, the Joseph F. Rock Herbarium was established in 1908. It’s home
to a collection of more than 50,000 plant specimens, including many rare and endemic plants from Hawai‘i and across the Pacific. For more than 50 years, Hawaii Literacy has been helping adults and children overcome those challenges by providing free programs and resources.
