ʻĀina Hoʻōla Initiative restores the wetlands in Hilo

Sponsored by Hawai’i Tourism Japan

HONOLULU (HI Now) - ʻĀina Hoʻōla Initiative helps to restore the wetland habitat for endemic waterbirds that are endangered or threatened at Lokowaka, Kiʻonakapahu and Akahi fishponds in Hilo, Hawaiʻi. They offer weekly community workdays that involve removing invasive non-native plants and replacing the area with native ones.
