Join us on our inaugural Hawaiian Fish Ponds Tour, Sat. May 5th

Hawaiian Fish Ponds Tour

Early Hawaiians were engaged in fish farming or mariculture practices over a thousand years in Hawaii. One of the largest and oldest inland  fishpond, the Kawainui Loko I’a was located in Kailua.  Other types of fish ponds that were located along the shoreline with a wall enclosure (kuapa) and sluice grates (makaha) to control the movement of fish and tides can still be found in Kaneohe Bay.

Join ‘Ahahui Malama I Ka Lokahi and the Kailua Hawaiian Civic Club on Saturday May 5th from 8:30am to 12:30 pm to visit the ancient fishponds at Waikalua Loko Kuapa with brief overlook stops to Nu’upia Loko and Kawainui Loko I’a.  Make your reservations by calling ‘Ahahui at 263-8008. There will be a $10 donation requested. We will meet at Ulupo Heiau at 8:15am and carpool to the various sites. Bring sun protection, water, snack and camera.

Also, at the Waikalua Loko Fishpond, we will be taking the opportunity to participate in the 350.org world wide event to Connect the DOTS on Global Warming.  We will be holding a sign (bed sheet) with a painted Red Dot to indicate the rise of sea level within 50 years that will impact this site.  A digital photo of this scene will be added to the thousands of photos being taking on this day throughout the world.

KAILUA JOINS GLOBAL DAY OF CLIMATE ACTION TO SPREAD MOST IMPORTANT NUMBER IN THE WORLD

One of Over 2,000 Simultaneous Events in Over 150 Countries

Kawainui Marsh at Na Pohaku o Hauwahine in Kailua, Oahu: October 24th— 75-100 students from Kailua and Oahu will gather in Kawainui Marsh to form the number “350” as part of the largest day ever of climate change activism. People joining from more than 2,000 communities in over 150 countries are part of a global day of action coordinated by 350.org to urge world leaders to take bold and immediate steps to address climate change and reduce carbon emissions.

“These young students will encounter the effects of global warming in the town of Kailua and Kawainui Marsh within their lifetime if we don’t take real action to reduce our carbon footprints before the problem becomes worse here in Hawaii and globally,” said Chuck “Doc” Burrows, board member of Hawaii Interfaith Power and Light and president of Ahahui Malama I Ka Lokahi.

Around the world on 24th October 2009—from capitol cities to the melting slopes of Mount Everest, even underwater on dying coral reefs—people will hold rallies aimed at focusing attention on the number 350 because scientists have insisted in recent years that 350 parts per million is the most carbon dioxide we can safely have in the atmosphere. The current CO2 concentration is 390 parts per million.
