Conservation Council for Hawai‘i (CCH) is one of Hawai‘i’s oldest and most effective wildlife organizations. Since 1950, we have been on the forefront of the environmental movement in Hawai‘i and a leader in shaping some of the most important environmental policies and programs in the Islands.

Conservation Council for Hawai‘i is pleased to announce and welcome Moana Bjur as its new Executive Director.  Ms. Bjur took the helm of Hawaii’s oldest wildlife conservation organization in early February and will lead the organization as it confronts the many challenges facing Hawaii’s native wildlife and the ecosystems they depend upon.

A Native Hawaiian descendant of Kawaihapai on the North Shore of O’ahu, Ms. Bjur has over 20 years of experience working across public, private and non-profit organizations developing and implementing conservation, environmental, education and community engagement programs for participants in school, camp, conference and professional setting in Hawai’i. Before joining CCH, Ms. Bjur served as the Assistant Executive Director at Waimea Valley, an educational non-profit whose mission is to preserve and perpetuate the human, cultural and natural resources of the Waimea Valley.

“We are thrilled to welcome Moana as CCH’s new executive director. CCH has a long-standing history as a voice for our imperiled native species, and we look forward to Moana leading our important work ahead in protecting and restoring Hawai’iʻs native wildlife and wild places for future generations.”
