Thousands of participants are expected to join in on the 22nd annual Hawaii Conservation Conference this week. The event is held at the Convention Center and will offer 80 hours of panels, discussions and forums all focused on Hawaii's conservation efforts. Some hot topics: erosion to our coasts, sustainable agriculture and also human impacts of our marine life. Gerry Davis, Hawaii Conservation Alliance: "IT BRINGS A WHOLE LOT OF EXPERTISE. LOCAL, TRADITIONAL AND WESTERN SCIENCES TOGETHER AND THAT GIVES THE COMMUNITY A CHANCE TO LEARN FROM THEM. AND HELPS INFORM OUR DECISIONS." Over 11 hundred participants have already registered but organizers say you can sign up at the door. For event times you can visit the AS SEEN ON section of our website -- KITV.com.
