The Nature Conservancy Hawai‘i Program New PacIOOS Partner

We are excited to welcome The Nature Conservancy’s Hawaiʻi Program (The Conservancy) as our newest PacIOOS Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) partner. The Conservancy is a private non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the preservation of the lands and waters upon which all life depends. In Hawaiʻi, The Conservancy manages 43,000 acres in 12 preserves and works in 20 coastal communities to help protect the near-shore reefs and waters of the main Hawaiian Islands. The Conservancy also co-owns and co-manages the Palmyra Atoll National Wildlife Refuge in partnership with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Palmyra is located 1,000 miles south of Hawaiʻi, and is also part of the Pacific Remote Islands Marine National Monument. PacIOOS is looking forward to collaborating with The Conservancy to advance resource management projects and data collection in Hawaiʻi and Palmyra.
