During the break in public meetings, the board has been working with various community members and Hannah Bernard of the Hawaii Wildlife Fund on creating a management plan with the goal to restore a healthy Honolua ’ahupua’a through community-based management utilizing Hawaiian values and practices.

The management plan process the board has begun is being widely used by communities throughout the Pacific Rim to better manage marine resources.
