SHAPING THE FUTURE OF HAWAII

Our Marine Debris Keiki Education & Outreach educators teach Hawaii's youth how to reduce our dependency on plastics and to join us in recovering what does wash up on our shores.
   Hawaii Wildlife Fund is also working to stop ocean pollution at its source. In 2016, we joined the efforts of Surfrider Foundation and others to ban polystyrene food containers (EPS or Styrofoam) on Maui and Hawaii Island.
   Please patronize these 131 food vendors and restaurants that have elected to use foam alternatives for their to-go containers.

DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Mahalo nui loa to all who joined us in celebrating 20 years of marine conservation in Hawai'i Nei!

For 20 years, Hawaii Wildlife Fund has been at the forefront of a community-driven effort to restore the health of our islands' nearshore waters.
   Our team depends on the support and involvement of hundreds of volunteers.
   HWF is known for our hands-on field work: restoring native vegetation, removing invasive species and marine debris from our shores, and protecting native wildlife like sea turtles and seals who use these beaches.
   We also reduce ocean pollution at its source through outreach education to our residents and visitors, through legislation that bans marine debris such as plastic bags and polystyrene, and through a lawsuit resulting in a landmark court decision identifying wastewater as a pollutant in our nearshore reefs.
   We have made progress: Green sea turtle and humpback whales are increasing due to conservation efforts, but their ocean home is in big trouble and the future has never been more uncertain. The work we do on behalf of Hawaii's native wildlife depends on your involvement. Won’t you join us?
   Hannah Bernard, Executive Director


COASTAL ECOSYSTEMS OUTREACH
Hawai'i Wildlife Fund educators are excited to share our newest environmental education unit with middle school teachers and their classrooms.
   Since August, our two-part Hawaiian Coastal Ecosystems unit has reached over 180 middle school students (5th-7th grades) statewide. Students receive hands-on experience using scientific research techniques and participate in service-learning field trips.
   This program was made possible by a generous donation from the Massen Greene Foundation in memory of John DiFederico.
