SB 1240 can end the aquarium trade in Hawaii—an illegal, amoral reef wildlife trade that claims gross revenue of $2 million for 200 collectors. They shout, “It’s sustainable!” but can’t define sustainability. They claim no poaching or coral damage. Testimony before the Hawaii legislature is not under oath but should be.
Hawaiian spotted puffer is endemic and iconic and brings $5 to the collector, as Hawaii reefs are devastated. Reef tourism generates a billion dollars and no critters leave.
Please share & email: email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org STOP the aquarium trade in Hawaii. Pono politics sees the difference between right and wrong. People across the nation and the world want reef recovery in Hawaii, and so do Hawaii people!
