Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Tour Guide Training
Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary – Kīhei Campus.
9am - 12pm
Environmental interpretation plays a significant role in nature-based tourism and is mutually beneficial to tour operators, visitors, conservation groups, and the nature-based tourism economy. Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Trainings for Nature-based Tour Operators is a program initially funded by the Hawaii Tourism Authority. The program’s goal is to provide conservation professionals with an effective way to communicate information about the species and environments they are working to protect to the tour operators and guides who work in or near these environments and who educate visitors about East Maui. The program is a partnership between East Maui Watershed Partnership, Maui Invasive Species Committee, and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project.
