The Lab

The mission of the Friedlander lab is to help identify and address major issues in marine conservation to inform wise ecosystem-based management throughout Hawaii and the broader Pacific region. Our interdisciplinary approach uses cutting-edge technologies and analytical tools to better understand biophysical and anthropogenic processes that influence marine ecosystem dynamics. Our methods range from remote sensing to ethnographic research, and integrate across knowledge systems to inform site-specific stewardship initiatives for sustainable coastal ecosystems and human well-being. We work closely with local communities, and governmental and non-governmental organizations to support sustainable resource use and biodiversity conservation.
