11th Hour continues its ongoing efforts to transform ocean health by providing grants to organizations piloting programs that model sustainability best practices, advance ocean stewardship, and create systemic change to restore ocean health. They recently announced five grantees, one being the Polynesian Voyaging Society in Hawaii.
The Polynesian Voyaging Society engages student navigators in storm training and the ancient science of non-instrument, wayfinding navigation, while sailing through the ʻAlenuihāhā Channel between the islands of Maui and Hawaii, in preparation for crossing the Pacific Ocean. The project will galvanize action on climate change and inspire ocean protection.
