Algae Showcase


To honor the late Hawai’i marine botany expert and pioneer, Dr. Isabella Abbott, Barb Kennedy and Bishop Museum Collections visited the Aquarium on June 20th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. to showcase limu collections that were once researched by Dr. Abbott.

In addition, Dr. Celia Smith from the University of Hawaii at Manoa Botany Department led an algae pull right outside the Aquarium lawn. Keiki were also provided the opportunity to learn more about these native algae and make algae prints with Margo Vitarelli.
