Trustee Angela Nolan, Ryan Nobriga, on behalf of the Kāʻanapali Ocean Resort Foundation and Vic and Candy Henry, Kāʻanapali Ocean Resort property owners, delivered a $10,000 check to Pu'u Kukui Watershed Preserve. Pu’u Kukui Watershed Preserve is the largest private nature preserve in the state of Hawaiʻi. Extending across more than 9,000 acres from ma uka to ma kai of Mauna Kahālāwai on Maui's West side, it is home to some of the rarest endangered flora and fauna in the islands. This pristine area is a vital water source for Mauiʻs community and one of the wettest spots on earth. Most recently, under new management, the ancestral wisdom of Hawaiʻian elders has been laid as the foundation for conservation efforts in the preserve; providing a culturally sensitive and informed approach to managing the thriving native ecosystem of Puʻu Kukui. Conservation endeavors include non-native invasive species control, weed control, monitoring, research and most importantly protecting rare species.
