US Fish & Wildlife Service ‘Opihi Project Podcast
The US Fish & Wildlife Service hosted a podcast with Manager Climate Corps graduate student, Lauren Kapono. The video highlights her research focused on monitoring ‘opihi populations across the Kalaemanō shoreline of Hawai’i to learn about seasonal shifts in shellfish habitats. Her work emphasizes the importance of long-term knowledge held by local communities and supports healthy and resilient ecosystems in the face of change (climate and social), land use, and unknown future pressures.
