The sea of flowers in Hawaii has bloomed in the Blue Flower Sea
Posted February 11, 2018 04:14:14 Blue flower sea blooms in Hawaii.
It’s a common sight in Honolulu, where tourists flock to the beautiful coastal islands.
This is the sea of flower.
ABC News visited Hawaii’s Blue Flower sea and found that it is one of the most beautiful sea life that can be seen in the state.
Blue flower is a rare type of seaweed that is a beautiful combination of red and green, said Jennifer Hensley, the Blue Flowered Marine Conservation Society’s (BFCMS) director of outreach.
“The algae blooms and other marine life can be spectacular in their own right, but this is one place where they’re not just a decorative display.
They’re thriving,” she said.
Hensler said that this is the first time that blooms have been seen in Hawaii’s most populous city, Honolulu.
The blue flower, which is native to Australia, is a deep green, about three feet long.
The sea bloomes appear in the spring and summer and then disappear.
Housk’s blue flower can be found at the bottom of a lake or floating along the bottom in shallow water.
The blooms also appear in Hawaii in summer.
“In Hawaii, we have a number of different species that bloom during the summer, but I’ve never seen one blooming here that I know of,” Housko said.
The water around Hawaii is a little bit more polluted than the rest of the state, but Houskos research shows that it’s a good place to go.
Hinks and Houska are among those who visit the ocean every summer.
Hays Hinks, a marine biologist with the Hawaii Department of Environmental Affairs, said that the state is getting more pollution in the water from landfills and the burning of fossil fuels.
“A lot of the pollution we see in Hawaii comes from the landfilling, but the other major source is from the burning and disposal of the oil and gas in the oceans,” he said.
But the blue flower in Hawaii is just one of many marine species blooming in the region, he said, adding that the ocean is a good habitat for the blue flowers.
“There are many different species of blue flowers, some of which can bloom in Hawaii,” Hinks said.
Blue flowers bloom in a range of habitats, including deep water, shallow water, lakes and ocean breezes.
“Some are found in the depths of the ocean, and some are found on land,” Hokes said.
“One of the things that we want to know is how are these blooms getting here?
We want to find out if we can actually feed them, or if it’s just the algae blooming that they’re feeding on,” Hays said.
It also is a way to help save the Blue Coral Sea, which was a big fish kill in the 1970s, Hinks added.
The Blue Coral sea, a large sea turtle and reef, was a popular tourist destination in Hawaii, Hokes explained.
The animals were hunted and killed in the area.
“Now that it has recovered from the killing, they’re a bit more of a tourist attraction,” Hikes said.
In Hawaii, the blue sea is a protected habitat, and there are rules about what can be done to protect it.
“We have a lot of protections that we have in place,” Hines said.
While Hawaii has more blue flower species than any other state, the species that can bloom there is different than the species in other states.
Hines is interested in learning more about blue flower’s life cycle.
She said the best way to find these species is to study them on their own.
“It’s important to get to know these organisms, to know where they live, what they eat, what kind of habitats they’re in, how they’re adapting,” she added.
Hawaii has about 20,000 blue flower populations, including more than 100,000 species, according to Hokes.
In addition to Housks, the BFCMS is also working to educate tourists on the blueflower and to conserve the blue marine life.
The organization is planning to have a Blue Flower Festival this summer, which will include a butterfly and an octopus show.
“This year we’re really hoping that we can make the Blue flower Festival a bigger thing than ever before, so that people come out to see these wonderful creatures,” Hins said.
