Save the Reef orientation for volunteers is Jan. 17

ReefTeach and Puako Makai Watch are seeking volunteers to educate visitors of Waialea Bay, called Beach 69, and Paniau Beach in Puako about reef etiquette. An orientation for new volunteers will be at 6 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 17, at Hokuloa Church, 1600 Puako Beach Dr.

Volunteers are needed to help save the reefs in the Puako area by educating visitors, swimmers, snorkelers, and divers on how to protect the delicate corals at these beaches and beyond. Healthy reefs are essential to the vitality and abundance of marine life.

Volunteers set their own schedules. To sign up for the training or for more information, please contact Cindi Punihaole at 895-1010 or or Makai Watch Ranger Randy Clarke at 345-1345 or

Businesses and schools may contact Punihaole or Clarke for information on how to Adopt-a-Day for their team at Paniau or Waialea Bay.
