School Mascots in Hilo, Hawaii

After a voyage of several thousand miles across the Pacific Ocean, the school mascots are relaxing on lava rock at a beach, and getting a chance to meet the locals...

Green Sea TurtleNene (The Hawaiian Goose, an endemic endangered species)
Ornate Butterflyfish and Coral
Unfortunately, even here on the remote beaches of Hawaii we find plastic marine debris...... but hopefully this won't always be the case.

Thank you for your participation in this important research voyage!

My class and I would like to thank Holly for coming and speaking to us about the ORV, the crew, the mission and what some possible solutions to the ocean/pollution could be. She was very engaging!
What a treat to have our mascot flag hand delivered! Great thanks for everything.
