On August 27, NOAA and partners including the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources co-hosted 'NOAA Reef Smart: Partnering to Improve Hawaii's Coral Reefs' in Honolulu. Nearly two dozen lawmakers, including U.S. Congressional representatives, members of the state legislature, and the Office of the Governor, were expected to attend.
