We’re thrilled to be one of four nonprofits included in Hawaiian Electric Industries’s (HEI) ongoing commitment to protecting and preserving Hawai‘i’s natural environment.

This new partnership will allow us to address our highest priority needs in our Hawai‘i program over the next year. This includes working with community volunteers to restore Maui’s steep slopes to prevent sediment from entering the ocean and smothering coral reefs, and supporting the community in Puakō on Hawai‘i Island to eliminate wastewater pollution on the nearshore reefs.

Our mutual goals around empowering Hawai‘i’s communities to protect their environment and build climate change resilience in the islands pave the way for a strong and fruitful partnership for us both.

Mahalo nui loa for joining us in our efforts to save Hawai‘i’s coral reefs—we’re excited to join forces with HEI to build a more climate resilient Hawai‘i.
