Members | Pau Hana Pū Kākou: Deep Coral Reefs of Papahānaumokuākea
Friday, November 6, 2020
4 – 5 pm
Most scuba divers rarely venture below 100 feet, and yet the coral reef habitat extends as deep as 500 feet. These deep reefs, known as the coral-reef “twilight zone” of Papahānaumokuākea are virtually unexplored and are potentially a treasure trove of unique Hawaiian biodiversity. Learn more with speaker Randall Kosaki, Ph.D.
Research Coordinator at NOAA Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument.
Dr. Randall Kosaki has an M.S. and a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Hawai’i and a background is in the behavioral ecology of coral reef fishes and has broad interests in the taxonomy and biogeography of Pacific coral reef fishes.
Members are invited to join Bishop Museum staff at 3:45 HST for a cocktail or mocktail inspired by this week’s presentation! See the recipes below:
