There are only a few more spaces for the Ocean Awareness Training scheduled for August in Princeville, said Jean Souza.
“We will be forming a wait list once the OAT spaces are filled for those who want the training,” said the Kauai programs coordinator for the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. “This is the first time this popular program is being offered on Kauai and is expected to fill quickly.”
The Ocean Awareness Training sessions are scheduled for Aug. 14, 21 and 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Cliffs at Princeville.
Registration is $10 for the entire series and covers training materials.
The Ocean Awareness Training is intended for people looking to boost knowledge and awareness of many aspects of the ocean, especially in the area of the marine environment in Hawaii, and Kauai.
Participants will learn about current ocean conservation efforts and opportunities to get involved.
Souza said more than a dozen ocean experts from Hawaii have agreed to share their expertise with Kauai’s people during the course of three days of lectures and presentations.
OAT participants are also encouraged to undertake a three-hour field project in order to receive Care of our Culture, Ocean, Reef and Animal Life certification.
