Protecting ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.
The mission of Hui o Koolaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the aina: mauka to makai.
Throughout the Koolaupoko moku (Makapuu to Kualoa) in Windward Oahu, land-based pollution is a leading threat to ocean health and resources. Hui o Koolaupoko (HOK) addresses these problems by being a leader in community-based watershed management; working with communities to improve water quality through ecosystem restoration, implementing low-impact retrofits (LIR), reducing non-point source pollution and developing education, outreach and volunteer programs for all ages.
Along with HOK’s restoration work in Koolaupoko, the organization provides services including technical consultation, restoration design, trainings and watershed restoration capacity building throughout Oahu and the State of Hawaii.
