We can all agree that the beauty and cultural significance of Kauai’s North Shore coastline is unsurpassed. Yet this unique region is facing serious and unrelenting threats from development, misuse, neglect, and now climate change.
Mālama Kuaʻāina is dedicated to protecting this natural treasure. We are the only organization working specifically to preserve this coastline, including the public’s right to enjoy its legendary beaches. Won’t you help us to continue this important work?
We monitor and comment on state and county processes related to shoreline certifications and setbacks, planning for coastal hazards, and public access. We participate in community resilience projects. We help to restore critical habitat essential to the viability of endangered species, such as the Hawaiian monk seal. And we’re a staunch advocate for the public trust — protecting dunes, vertical and lateral shoreline access, and the quality of the near-shore marine environment.
