In 2019, Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi continued its efforts to increase its capacity for growth through sustainable farming, increasing educational group visits, and educating families and the community in the practice of malama aina. Through wetland restoration, Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi through traditional Hawaiian wetland management has successfully cleared and manages over 20 acres. We have also planted over 1,000 native plants through our forestry program and have seen the return of 4 types of endangered birds to He’eia. While Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi shows a loss for the fiscal year 2019, we have been fortunate for an increase in grant funds for a positive outlook for 2020. We encourage you to contact us to discuss how you can help to make a difference too.
Our work is not done and with your continued support we look to continue to restore land through these programs.
On behalf of Kākoʻo ‘Ōiwi; mahalo for you support.
