The Mission of Malama Maha`ulepu
Malama Maha`ulepu is working to preserve, for future generations,
the irreplaceable natural and cultural resources of Maha`ulepu.
We believe that the Kaua`i community and its visitors deserve
the continuing experience of this beautiful and historic place
as an undeveloped area with compatible agricultural, educational
and recreational uses.
To achieve preservation, we educate ourselves and others
about Maha`ulepu. We seek supporters and partners. We strive
to be an inclusive, innovative, competent and collaborative
non profit organization.
Our purposes are:
- Education - to increase awareness and knowledge of the
importance of Maha`ulepu as a preservation opportunity to
the public, decision makers and the landowner
- Research - to learn about Maha`ulepu's past, present and
options for the future
- Stewardship - to help take care of the resources of Maha`ulepu
- Organizational capacity building - to continually assess
and develop the effectiveness of Malama Maha`ulepu.
