Kahi Kai — one ocean
The whole project was initiated by some simple scientific needs…
Organizing and making available specific information for the scientific community, but also providing educational tools, promoting and sharing our findings with the non scientific public.
Every day we get overwhelmed by an incredible amount of information. But at the same time the need of specialization restricts us to use just a small percentage of all this.
What happens to the remaining data? It somehow gets lost… In a similar manner, the internet contains an uncountable number of interesting resources. But mostly, they are spread around, restricted to one specialized topic, poorly illustrated and rarely cross referenced.
The need to merge already existing data with new information, organize it in an illustrated and intuitive manner, to be able to handle, use, make available and share these data with whoever may be able to use them, is now more necessary than ever.
That’s why we started Kahi Kai.
Kahi Kai (‘one sea’ in native Hawai’ian), stands for one unique ocean representing all the oceans of our planet, containing an amazing and mainly unknown biodiversity. One unique ocean which we all need to preserve.
Our aim is to create an online community for scientists, students, artists, journalists, politicians, fishermen, divers, surfers and everyone who is interested and committed to the fascinating, mysterious and highly endangered marine world.
Here at Kahi Kai you can connect, exchange, interact and collaborate together with people from all around the world sharing one and the same passion…
