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

For 70 years, CCH has been foundational to conservation efforts in Hawaiʻi.
From our beginnings as a small collection of scientists, planners, and landowners, to our organization today with over 5500 members from all walks of life, we have always strived to protect Hawaiʻi’s native species, advance biosecurity, and preserve the ecosystems that are foundational to our lāhui.

We are committed to protecting and restoring Hawaii’s native wildlife and wild places using all tools available to us to curtail or halt the many threats—from climate disruption to overfishing and land development—that Hawaii’s wildlife current face. We also spread awareness through educational materials and events so that all people have a chance to learn about conservation and get involved. As a leading voice on conservation here in Hawaiʻi and in Washington D.C. we are proud to fight on behalf of endangered species and the stability of natural ecosystems. We believe that Hawaii’s people, economy, and culture are better off when our actions are guided by stewardship for all native life and nature.

As the Hawai‘i state affiliate of the National Wildlife Federation, we have a voice on Capitol Hill on national issues affecting Hawai‘i. CCH is an independent 501(c)(3) non-profit grassroots organization based in Honolulu, Hawai‘i and is solely responsible for its own governance, program, and fundraising.
With your kōkua, we can continue this struggle for a better future for Hawai‘i and a better world for Hawaiians.
