We are kanaka with aloha for Hawaiʻi's native ecosystems and species. We are devoted to do our best to preserve and protect them, because our native plants and animals are found nowhere else on Earth, are our ancestors, and are the foundation of our culture.

Hawaiians for the Conservation of Native Ecosystems

OUR MISSION is to develop, promote and practice a native Hawaiian conservation ethic, grounded in ancient tradition, but relevant to our times, that is responsible to both Hawaiian culture and science, in order to protect Hawaiʻi's native cultural and natural heritage through research, education, and active stewardship.

WHO ARE WE? We are people with aloha for Hawaiʻi's native ecosystem areas and their inhabitants. We are devoted to doing our best to preserve these places and the native species that live there. We believe that native species and ecosystems deserve our care because they are unique life forms found nowhere else on Earth, and they are deeply linked to native Hawaiian culture.

We have a core of native Hawaiians on our board of directors, but our members come from all ethnic backgrounds and disciplines. Some of us are scientists, and some have expertise in Hawaiian culture. Others have careers in conservation and land management. What unites us is our dedication to the preservation of native Hawaiian ecosystems and the Hawaiian culture that sprang from them.

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT? when we take action on a particular issue affecting native ecosystems or species of the land or sea, we are careful to consider both Hawaiian cultural values and practices, as well as the environmental circumstances indicated by scientific studies.

ʻAHAHUI MĀLAMA I KA LŌKAHI works to ensure the preservation of Hawaiian traditions and our native ecosystems alike though education, stewardship, and research. Our unique Hawaiian organization is based on the balanced concepts of mālama (stewardship and responsible behavior), ʻike kaiaola (ecological knowledge), and loina (Hawaiian values and traditions).

Message from the President of ʻAhahui

Aloha mai käkou!

It has finally come to pass! On October 24, 2008, after years of contentious disputes, the City and County of Honolulu officially transferred ownership of 693 acres in Kawainui Marsh to the State Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR).

It is now the responsibility of the Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) to manage and maintain the natural resources of both Kawainui and Hamakua wetlands as Ramsar… Continue
