“A vacation that will invigorate your senses and leave you feeling inspired and fulfilled.”
Give a bit back to nature for all that it has given you. Revitalize your soul and reconnect with mother nature as you volunteer at the Hakalau Rain Forest in Mauna Kea Island, Hawaii. Take part in this unique and uplifting experience as you give back to the lush forest and colorful wildlife of Hawaii.
Every person that comes to Hawaii knows you just can’t stop at one island. While you’re off island hopping, consider taking a weekend trip to the island of Mauna Kea, an island with flourishing rain forests, beautiful endangered species, and a multitude of rare plant species.
Mauna Kea Island is home to 32,733-acres of rain forest. Out of the fourteen native birds of Hawaii, eight of the birds are endangered. Traverse the lush mountain side and spot the thirteen migratory bird species, and twenty introduced species that roam through the forests. If you’re more into botany, check out the twenty-nine rare plant species, twelve of which are listed as endangered!
Make your vacation a fulfilling experience as you give back to mother nature, and help maintain this beautiful ecosystem. This experience can be taken on as a weekend adventure, or a full day trip. The “Friends of Hakalau Forest” are eager and willing to have you take part in their goal to foster understanding, enjoyment, and conservation of the natural and cultural resources of Hakalau Forest National Wildlife Refuge.
