Opportunities in Volunteering for Hawaii's Environment
Paradise is an ideal. It’s somewhere other than where you spend your busy days. It’s soaked in
beauty, and the sight of it stops your mind. It lifts your heart.
But there’s more beneath the surface of a pretty picture. There are struggles to keep Hawai‘i’s
coastlines from being developed, desperate battles to protect endangered plants and wildlife
against invasive species. And there are the tireless folks, who wake up obsessing about some
cherished piece of wilderness or some underwater sanctuary or some species in danger of falling
off the map.
In Preserving Paradise, you’ll meet these passionate people—hopefully soon you’ll be standing
next to them. A response to both our economic and environmental crises, the book features over
65 organizations in Hawai'i that offer short-term volunteer opportunities with the islands’ land,
ocean and wildlife. Going beyond “green,” it’s a way to experience the islands that doesn’t just
have less of an impact, but actually gives something back.
