Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Training

Please sign up at mauimauka.org/trainings to RSVP and get more information about the event.

Three hour training on Maui's natural environment to inform tour guides, informal and formal educators, and general public. These trainings focus on watersheds, native plants and animals, and invasive species. Presentations are simple, educational, fact-based and are taught by members of conservation organizations.

Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness aims to Connect Conservation Professionals with Tourism Professionals to create a beneficial relationship in nature-based tourism as both can benefit from increasing the quality of interpretation and the level of awareness of Hawaiʻi’s unique natural resources.

TRAINING OUTLINE:
• Introduction to the natural history of the islands
• East Maui Watershed Partnership: Facts on how a watershed works, the conservation efforts to protect it, and endemism in Hawaiian plants.
• Maui Invasive Species Committee: Facts about the rate of new species to the island over time with examples of invasive species and what should be reported if seen.
• Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project: Facts about native forest birds: how they got here, why they are unique, the threats they face, and conservation and recovery actions.
• Guest Speaker: New environmental expert each training. They will share information about their area of expertise.

WHAT YOU WILL RECEIVE:

• Facts that you can share
• Certificate
• Informational cards to use for tours
• Volunteer information
• Maui Mauka sticker
• Snacks and refreshments

Guest Speaker: Dr. Kristin Jonasson has studied bat ecology for the past 12 years. Her passion for bat conservation began as a field assistant on a study of the causes of bat mortality at wind energy facilities in Canada. She has recently helped to inform conservation decisions in Hawaiʻi by describing the habitat needs of the ʻōpeʻapeʻa on Maui.

Kamehameha Schools Bat Club will also join us. Maybe we'll even see a bat on campus!
