The Maui Coastal Land Trust is devoted to safeguarding the beauty and natural resources of the Hawaiian Islands. Through a variety of conservation and land ownership easements, the trust currently safeguards more than 17,000 acres of land. To minimize intrusive actions, they have fenced off sand dunes to reduce foot traffic and exclude invasive predators. The trust also works to guarantee that development conforms to the historical and cultural purposes of the land and defends the aloha 'āina values of deep love, respect and care for the land.
The trust also raises money from government sources and individuals to purchase land, with a focus on protecting farmland to improve food sustainability. The NOAA sea-level rise and coastal flood impact viewer allows users to view various scenarios of sea level rise and the associated impacts of coastal wetlands, which can help land trusts prioritize conservation areas. The Hawaii Land Trust ensures the permanent protection of this rich cultural site, which in the past was slated to become a golf resort. When you support the Land Trust Alliance, your contribution helps save more of the land you love.
