Koloa Iki campaign raises awareness of sea level rise in Hawaiʻi
We often hear about the phrase “sitting duck” – you think of vulnerability, an easy target. That’s a position we don’t want to be in and there’s a campaign recently launched around Koloa Iki, a little Hawaiian duck with a serious message about resilience and climate change.
State Climate Commission member Kaʻāina Hull and former Climate Commission Coordinator Anu Hittle spoke with Hawaiʻi Public Radio about recently released guidance on dealing with sea level rise and the new scrutiny about future development. Listen in on their conversations here.
