A new facility is opening on Hawai‘i Island to treat endangered marine mammals. And it’s already got its first patients. HPR’s Sherry Bracken talked with a scientist just after they arrived at Honokohau Harbor in Kona.
There's a new facility near the Kona Airport that's important to island residents--and not just the human variety. It's the latest addition to the Natural Energy Laboratory--and it should help protect one of the state's most vulnerable species. From the Big Island, HPR's Sherry Bracken explains.
Hundreds of endangered species may be threatened due to rising sea-levels brought on by climate change. That’s according to a new report by the Center for Biological Diversity. And as HPR’s Molly Solomon reports, one of the animals most at risk calls Hawaii home.
