Black-and-gold Sapsucking Slug (Cyerce nigricans) is a species of sacoglossan sea slug (a sea slug that is vegetarian & can photosynthesize). It is arguably one of the most beautiful sea slugs in the world, with stunning ruffles that look almost like butterfly wings! The range of Cyerce nigricans includes the Pacific and Indian Oceans.
Maui Nui Makai Networks mission is to connect communities across Maui Nui to care for and restore healthy ecosystems on which Hawai'i's people depend, and the Network is a reminder that each group working hard in their own communities is creating big changes collectively. Their purpose is to share and learn from their diverse experiences, lessons, and best practices to help member sites mālama (care for) specific makai (seaward) areas.
