Hōkūleʻa Update | June 18, 2015

Aloha everyone, this is Jenna Ishii from the Hōkūleʻa crew, and we are reporting to you from the Great Barrier Reef. I have my friend Wanda the Worm. She comes all the way from Waimanalo, Oʻahu, and she is here to explore one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Today we just went diving at Flynn Reef, which is about 30 miles off shore. The rest of our crew is at Upolu Reef. On the dive, we got to see beautiful parrot fish, clams, and coral reefs that weʻve never seen in my lifetime in Hawaiʻi. It just makes you think about how well Australia has protected their coral reefs for future generations, and I think we will all go home and talk to our friends and families to share with them the amazing reef we just saw. Hopefully, we can bring back some practices that they have done to take care of their reefs here. We are going for some lunch then go for another dive and report back soon. This Jenna signing off for the Worldwide Voyage. Please continue to follow us at Aloha!

Please help keep us sailing for future generations. All contributions make a difference for our voyage. Mahalo nui loa!
