We have been working hard in Hawaii to improve our reefs and sponsoring a
reef-safe sunscreen bill which has been watered down into a study, that
probably won't be funded.

Our funding applications to study oxybenzone effects on the reefs in Hawaii
has been denied by NOAA as they are focused on climate change.

We need support to pressure our lawmakers to help us remove dangerous
chemicals from products that are harming the reefs. We are so close to
making it happen.

The latest wording of the bill prior has been to remove the "ban" and
replace it with a study.
