Music for Uhu: Conservancy Concert
Coral reefs face a large variety of challenges. From climate change, to overfishing and local pollution, coral reefs are under threat. Uhu (parrotfishes) in Hawai‘i play a crucial role as guardians of the corals. Uhu eat the seaweeds that often cover and smother corals and consequently provide more space for corals to grow and thrive. Unfortunately, uhu are severely overfished in Hawai‘i and their ability to protect corals is currently compromised.
The Uhu Conservancy is an organization that strives to increase awareness about parrotfish conservation in Hawai‘i by reaching out to local communities through music. We collaborate with artists to promote local music, to increase awareness about Hawaiian parrotfish conservation, and to promote coral reef management that increases reef resilience to changing climactic and environmental conditions.
Event at Nextdoor, 43 N. Hotel Street Chinatown, Honolulu
