OUR MISSION

We are dedicated to protecting native Hawaiian plants, animals, and ecosystems for future generations.

“CCH excels at educating the public about the need to protect the Hawaiian environment. Everyone who treasures Hawai‘i’s unique wildlife, flora, and habitats owes CCH a debt of gratitude for its work.”

Jay Nelson, Former Director of the Global Ocean Legacy, Pew Environmental Group

“We have a moral responsibility to care for our children’s future. CCH is making sure our keiki and generations to come have the same opportunities to enjoy native Hawaiian plants and animals as we do today.”

Dr. Charles Pe‘ape‘a Makawalu Burrows, Founder and Past President, ‘Ahahui Mälama I Ka Lökahi
