WE NEED YOUR HELP! King Tide Photo Surveys next week!

Help us document the impacts of King Tides (the highest high tides of the year). Documenting King Tides can give us a snapshot of what our future shorelines may look like with rising sea levels. Visit the project website, www.PacificIslandsKingTides.org, for peak high tide times at locations across the Hawaiian Islands on King Tide photo survey dates.
