VOICE OF THE SEA: Adapting Culture to Climate Change

In this episode, we’re learning how scientists, cultural practitioners, and community members are working together to understand and adapt to the effects of climate change. We investigate the relationship between a changing environment and water quality in local fishponds as well as the relationship between changing ocean conditions and people’s personal connection to place. We start off on the big island of Hawai’i at Honokea Loko I’a with UH Hilo graduate students and fishpond caretakers Cherie Kauahi and Kamala Anthony.
