Abstract
The Monument’s management is underpinned by its vision “to forever protect and
perpetuate ecosystem health and diversity and Native Hawaiian cultural significance of
Papahānaumokuākea.” Formal responsibility for achieving this vision is shared by the State
of Hawai‘i, Department of Land and Natural Resources, (DLNR), the U.S. Department of the
Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), and the U.S. Department of Commerce, National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), collectively named the Co-trustees.
The Papahānaumokuākea Natural Resources Science Plan (Science Plan) is the first of a
number of “step-down” plans called for in the Management Plan. The Science Plan aims to
facilitate the Management Plan’s goal for understanding and interpreting the NWHI, and to
provide the information required to support management actions, such as managing threats,
permitting activities, and evaluating the effectiveness of management efforts.
