Without the support of the Maui community, EMWP landowners, and funding agencies, none of our goals to protect the East Maui Watershed could have been achieved. Without continued support, the natural resources of East Maui will continue to be threatened and damaged.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank the following:
Haleakalā Ranch, Hana Ranch and EMI
for granting access to their lands and dedication to the preservation of the East Maui Watershed
Staff from Haleakalā National Park, the Nature Conservancy of Hawai’i, and State of Hawai’i DLNR who have provided guidance to the EMWP crew to implement effective natural resource protection programs
Maui’s hunters for assisting the EMWP in animal control projects above and below the fence lines
Maui Invasive Species Committee (MISC) personnel for their efforts to battle invasive alien pests in East Maui and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project(MFBRP) for continued research on how to save our native honeycreepers.
The staff at the Research Corporation of the University of Hawai’i (RCUH), Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit (PCSU), and Tri-Isle RC&D for assistance with all administrative and fiscal matters associated with the EMWP project.
Generous funding support has been provided by County of Maui, State of Hawaiʻi, The Nature Conservancy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Hawaiʻi Tourism Authority, among many others which helps us to be successful in reaching our goals for protecting and preserving the East Maui Watershed and providing outreach and education to the local community.
