As the summer winds down, so does our time with our two amazing KUPU members, Lane & Maya. They will be completing their 11 month term with Hui o Ko'olaupoko by mid-August and have both chosen to complete a second term as KUPU members!
We are happy to have Lane returning to complete her second term with HOK! She will continue to be the smiling face greeting volunteers at all of our events, and we look forward to helping her expand her conservation knowledge and networks.
Maya will be returning to her home island of Kaua'i to assist with native bird conservation, a field in which she hopes to focus her future master's degree studies. We bid her a fond a hui hou and hope to visit her on Kauai in the future!
Mahalo to these two hardworking and ever cheerful ladies for all of their efforts over the last 11 months!
The mission of Hui o Ko`olaupoko is to protect ocean health by restoring the `aina: mauka to makai. This is done in partnership with stakeholders including interested citizens, non-governmental organizations, government, educational institutions and businesses while using and focusing on sound ecological principles, community input, and cultural heritage.
