HANALEI NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE VOLUNTEER WORK
The Hanalei National Wildlife refuge is a 917-acre refuge located on the island of Kaua’i. Established in 1972, the refuge’s goal is to preserve the lives and habitats of endangered bird species, many of whom are native to the islands. Beautiful and diverse wetlands define the refuge, along with a host of plant and animal species.
To preserve the habitats of these special birds, the Refuge consistently maintains their wetlands by building islands, controlling water levels, reducing the growth of invasive species, and farming taro, among other activities. Education and community awareness are important to the refuge, and they’ve formed community partnerships to help further their cause.
Caring volunteers are crucial to the development and maintaining of an organization like the Hanalei National Wildlife refuge. Eager volunteers can contact the Kaua’i National Wildlife Complex at (808)-828-1413 to help out.
