Shorelines in Trouble

After learning about the shoreline habitat and some of the organisms that live there, students will be introduced to some problems which could impact this ecosystem. Students are given information to read on traditional Hawaiian Ahupua‘a management of the watershed, and how these methods helped preserve the natural resources. Next, they are given a short article to read on modern issues related to the health, use, and management of our watersheds, particularly the shorelines.
