Who We Are

The Alliance promotes strategic environmental stewardship, stimulates community participation in resource management, and leverages capacity across the Hawaiian Islands. For two decades, the Alliance has led the coordination of the annual Hawaiʻi Conservation Conference, which serves as an essential interactive forum for scientists, managers, students, and cultural practitioners to share their best practices and discuss cutting-edge issues across the Pacific Islands. 

The Alliance efforts prompted a number of statewide collaborations such as Mālama Hawaiʻi, the Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species, and the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative. In cooperation with our members and other conservation partners, the Alliance strongly supports the International Union for Conservation of Nature World Conservation Congress, Hawaiʻi Green Growth, and the State of Hawaiʻi's Department of Land and Natural Resources, Rain Follows the Forest Initiative. 


The Hawai'i Conservation Alliance (Alliance) is a collaboration of conservation leaders representing government, cultural, educational, and non-profit organizations from across the state. Collectively, we are responsible for safeguarding the biodiversity of Hawaiʻi's ocean, land, and streams. Our members live and work in Hawai'i and represent the people and communities who depend on healthy land and water for social, cultural, and agricultural well-being.

Working together to perpetuate native ecosystems and ensure the unique biodiversity of our islands endures, the Alliance provides unified leadership and advocacy for Hawaiʻi's most critical conservation issues.
