The CRB Response
At the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) Response, our mission is to protect Hawaii's communities, industries, and natural environment from the threats and impacts of CRB. In this short presentation, we'll cover what is a CRB, why do we care, who is the CRB Response, and how you can help.
Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle - a Threat to the Indigenous Hawaiian Culture
Leaders of Keiki O Ka 'Aina Family Learning Centers, a statewide non-profit organization, share their deep concerns about the potential devastating impact of the Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle on Hawaii's environment, economy, and perhaps most importantly, culture. If the beetle cannot be eradicated or controlled, it could threaten the perpetuation of cultural practices that are based on the coconut, loulu, kalo, and other culturally significant plants.
