To preserve, protect Hawaii’s many cultural, historical and ecological resources is the HOPC agenda.

“We demand a lot from our oceans — from fishing and tourism, to shipping and energy development. But our seas are already under siege from problems like pollution, overfishing, and ocean acidification. Increased ocean activities, if not carried out wisely, will cause “ocean sprawl,” further stressing these valuable resources and jeopardizing the food, jobs and recreation we need our oceans to provide. Coastal and marine spatial planning (CMSP) is a common sense process that allocates space in the oceans for various uses, identifying areas in which different uses make sense and other areas where ocean habitat needs protection.”

“It’s not an outrageous concern, considering that the world used an estimated 288 million tons of plastic in 2013 – 10 percent of which supposedly ends up in the ocean.
