puako.org website

The puako.org website is the result of the ongoing efforts of a number of volunteers from the extended Puako ohana.

In particular, we'd like to commend the efforts of Samantha Birch and Andrew Walsh for their extensive contributions towards the redesign and relaunch of the website in December of 2007. The new format and informational content is the result of their creativity and dedicated effort.

Additional thanks go to Zach Caldwell of the Nature Conservancy, the Marine section "editor in chief", whose consultation and oversight has been invaluable.

Valuable input has been provided by the Puako Community Association. In particular, Rob Shallenberger has proven a great resource in general, and the source of the preponderance of great photographs of the Puako natural environment.

Also, a special nod to Cynthia Ho in recognition of her early efforts to spearhead a change of scope to encompass the new website educational component.
