If you haven't heard, there is an ongoing situation with the building of the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT) on Mauna Kea. Protests have now endangered the project and threaten its existence. If you care about science, PLEASE GO TO THIS SURVEY AND LET YOUR VOICE BE HEARD!

This Thursday, April 30, the Office of Hawaiian Affairs (OHA) will hold a special meeting of the Board of Trustees to discuss Mauna Kea and the Thirty Meter Telescope (TMT). It is very likely that the board will take a vote that will have a negative impact on the construction of TMT.

Your voice needs to be heard!

OHA has issued an anonymous five-question online survey seeking input on the public’s opinion of OHA based on several stances they may opt to take related to TMT. We’re encouraging supporters to complete the quick survey prior to the meeting on Thursday.
