Starting in July 2006, the HCA has granted the Conservation Innovation Awards for new technologies or techniques used in conservation activities in the islands. This recognition is given to the instigators or champions of a procedure that leads to significant advances to the structure or nature of environmental conservation in Hawai‘i. Examples of such procedures may be the creating of legislation that changes the dynamics of natural resource management, or programs that lead to significant better protection of the Hawaii’s native ecosystems.
