Before we visited Mokauea, aunty Kehaulani Kupihea came into our class to talk to us about the history of Mokauea Island and how it's important to us. On June 28, we paddled out to Mokauea which is in Mauli Ola, known by many as Sand Island. When we got there, we met up with Aunty Kehaulani Kupihea and we got to help bring the wa’a to the ocean and then we paddled out there. When we got to Mokauea, we went to one of the little hale and Aunty Kehau was telling us what to do and also not to do. We took a tour around Mokauea and we saw a lot of different animals in the water and the way they live. After we took a tour, we grabbed gloves and a fish net to pick up the trash around the beach and we all finished and grabbed a whole lot of trash. I really hope more kids and people around everywhere pick up trash even if it’s not yours. We also looked for animals in the invasive limu. We love visiting Mokauea and learning about this special place!
