National Park Service

Since 1916, the National Park Service has been entrusted with the care of our national parks. With the help of volunteers and partners, we safeguard these special places and share their stories with more than 318 million visitors every year. But our work doesn’t stop there.

We are proud that tribes, local governments, nonprofit organizations, businesses, and individual citizens ask for our help in revitalizing their communities, preserving local history, celebrating local heritage, and creating close-to-home opportunities for kids and families to get outside, be active, and have fun.

Taking care of the national parks and helping Americans take care of their communities is a job we love, and we need—and welcome—your help and support.

MFBRP was formed by the State of Hawaiʻi Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). While our efforts are funded and guided by these agencies to accomplish state and federal recovery actions, public funds are not adequate to complete the recovery actions necessary for any of the Maui forest bird species. MFBRP is also a project under Nā Koa Manu Conservation, Inc., a local non-profit, which expands our capabilities for raising private funds.

We operate on a shoestring budget and MFBRP prides itself in using these funds as efficiently as possible for the largest conservation benefit. While public funds provide half to two thirds of our annual operating costs, the rest is fulfilled by small grants, corporate donations as well as a quarter of the annual MFBRP operating budget that is made up from private donations of all sizes.

While fundraising is key to the success of MFBRP, we are also able to reduce our project costs by using volunteers as much as possible. We are humbled by the number of dedicated and passionate people that have helped MFBRP in everything from fieldwork, to office work, to report writing and more.
