Law enforcement and community members have been out in force at Laniakea beach recently to protect Hawaiʻi’s wildlife. This comes after reports of visitors touching and harassing Hawaiian monk seals and turtles. Hawaii DLNR (Department of Land and Natural Resources) has assigned more officers to regularly patrol Laniakea and deter offenders. Anyone who sees someone violating the rules should call DLNR’s 24-hour hotline: 643-DLNR. DLNR, HTA, and organizations like Malama na Honu are continuing to explore additional ways to reach visitors and educate them about safe wildlife viewing.
