Mālama Maunalua is committed to restoring the health of Maunalua Bay through habitat restoration, science and planning, and education and outreach. Restoring Maunalua Bay takes a community that understands the Bay is in trouble, believes the Bay is worth saving, and has hope that the decline can be reversed. Our work is driven by these community members who help improve the quality of Maunalua Bay.
Since 2005, Mālama Maunalua has worked hand in hand with dedicated volunteers and partners such as The Nature Conservancy and Pono Pacific to remove harmful algae species from Paiko Restoration Area, clearing over 3.5 million pounds of algae to date.
Since the organization’s inception, community-based planning has been critical to understanding the Bay and identifying needed strategies towards restoration.
Mālama Maunalua shares the organization’s mission and initiatives with community members through various outreach events and school visits. Invite Mālama Maunalua to your school or outreach event by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
