Maunalua Bay was once a thriving ecosystem rich in marine life.

But it's damaged now.

Modern life fundamentally changed it.

Our manmade drainage system and the overall hardening of the land have altered the natural system of watersheds.

Storm drains act as chutes that carry not just water but all kinds of life-choking sediment and pollutants straight into Maunalua Bay.

Invasive alien algae grow unchecked,

destroying the Bay's habitat and pushing out its native plants and animals.

With a decaying habitat and harmful fishing practices, fish can't regenerate in Maunalua Bay.

Malama Maunalua envisions a healthy Bay full of life and clean clear water.

We are your neighbors working for and with the community to restore it.
