Posted on Jul 3, 2018 in Conservation

Conservation International has finalized the 2018 Ocean Health Index for Hawaii.  The final score was 74 out of 100 with Livelihoods & Economies, Offshore Fisheries, and Sense of Place scoring relatively well. Coastal Protection was the lowest scoring goal, followed by the Habitats sub-goal of Biodiversity, the Mariculture sub-goal of Food Provision, and Sustainable Tourism. There is clearly room for improvement! For more information see the website http://ohi-science.org/mhi/ or browse the executive summary and technical report.
