The coral spawning season in Hawaii has begun! Each spring, the Hawaiian coral species, Pocillopora meandrina, or cauliflower coral, clouds the coastal sea with its annual broadcast spawning event. These short-lived events occurring just after sunrise signify the creation of the next generation of corals.
During November the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary has many wonderful events celebrating the return of the humpback whale to Hawaiian waters. We're also giving away beautiful posters to celebrate! Find out more in the blog post.
