The Hawaii Association for Marine Education and Research (HAMER) is a not for profit organization dedicated to understanding and protecting Hawaii’s marine environment. Our dedicated HAMER team have been studying the manta rays at Olowalu Reef on Maui for the past decade. In recent years, manta sightings have dropped dramatically and the coral reef habitat they come to visit is under serious threat of land-based sources of sediment and pollution.
