Today, we went to Mokauea which is located across Mauli Ola commonly known as Sand Island. We had to paddle to get to Mokauea Island and experienced seeing sea animals that have no backbone (invertebrates) on the papa (reef) and saw the last remaining fishpond on this island. We learned about the 5 common phytoplanktons, which are Cyano, Diatoms, Dinoflagillates, Green algae, and Coccolithophores of plankton. Kehau Kupihea is an anthropologist and she studies and teaches different people about the history and cultural significance of Mokauea. We found it interesting that Aunty Joney and her husband live on Mokauea and are caretakers of this place.
