Reef Ambassadors were out in full force​ recently​ on the North Shore of Oahu ​to support​ Nā Kama Kai. Nā Kama Kai’s (Children of the Sea) mission is to empower youth by creating, conducting and supporting ocean-based programs, specifically targeting ocean safety and conservation awareness in order to increase the capacity of youth in the community through Hawaiian values, culture and environmental education.

Nā Kama Kai understands the immense value of the ocean environment, its vast resources, and its relationship to the land.  As stewards of the kai (sea) and ʻāina (land) keiki (youth/children) from all ethnic origins and economic backgrounds will learn to embrace their kuleana (responsibility) as caretakers of marine ecosystems that must be nurtured for future generations.

Reef Ambassadors got involved with the local kids in water safety classes, SUP sessions and Outrigger paddles up the river. We were there to support and hook up the keiki with Reef hats and signed posters from the team.
