Happy #marinedebrismonday and thank you to everyone who came out and joined us this Saturday on Kailua Beach! We had a great time partnering with Aaron's Dive Shop and KidzArt WindWard to sift through the sand and collect microplastics! We love being a part of communities coming together to help conserve our marine ecosystem!

If you weren't available to join us this weekend, keep checking in on our Facebook and Instagram for any upcoming activities! Or, want to do a cleanup yourself? Head over to Aaron's Dive Shop and pick up your very own clean-up kit!

If you have been following us for a while, you know how much we LOVE Aaron's Dive Shop in Kailua. They have always supported us with tanks for our Marine Debris Program, a donation jar at their front register and supporting our BEAT Debris Program. And they are continuing to support HMAR and our ocean ecosystem by becoming Hawaii Marine Stewards!

This amazing company is the oldest dive shop on Oahu, and are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year! If you are looking for a place to rent or by gear, learn to dive or take a charter, Aaron’s is the place to go for friendly and knowledgeable staff! They do their part to support the community by participating in beach cleanups and partnering with other small Kailua businesses! If you haven’t stopped by the shop yet, you’re seriously missing out, go check it out today!

Get excited!! We’re partnering with Aaron's Dive Shop, 4ocean and Protea Zero Waste Store for a reef and beach clean up at Makai Pier on the 18th of September. Signup at the link below! See you all there!

You all know what time it is! It’s the fourth quarter of our BEAT Debris contest and we’re really bringing it this time! You all loved the Waihana wetsuit, we got more reports than ever before, we hope to beat the record again this time! This quarter our prizes will be:
