MORE FROM THE ANCHIALINE ECOSYSTEM CONFERENCE last weekend is available on https://www.facebook.com/hianchialine/?ref=py_c. A statement from Hawaiʻi Wildlife Fund says the organization "was proud to host this multi-agency, non-government organization, and community collaborative event focusing on anchialine ecosystems that linked scientists, students, managers and caretakers from around Hawaiʻi, Oʻahu, Texas, Maui, Florida, Croatia, Italy, Washington, Oregon, California, Kauaʻi, New York, Massachusetts, Mexico and Canada.

"However, I am hopeful that a new Hawaiʻi is upon us — a better Hawaiʻi.
"To attain that Hawaiʻi, we must act. As leaders, community organizers, and island-based organizations with a heart for Hawaiʻi, we have a profound opportunity to come together to tackle the most challenging issues of our time. Together, we can set the foundation for change. But, it will take courage, audacity, and the willingness to put aside our individual interests to achieve a grander vision.
"The 2022 Hawaiʻi Sustainability Summit will aim to do just that. To break down silos and drive shared priority agreements that catalyze sweeping policy shifts for all Hawaiʻi. It will be on the backs of our collective advocacy efforts that we truly begin a path for a sustainable island home.
"The time to act is now — for our keiki and theirs.
