MFBRP helps to connect our local community, our youth and our visitor industry with information about our native ecosystem, our endangered species, and the need for stringent biosecurity.

Maui Mauka Nature-Based Tourism Trainings – Connecting Tourism Professionals with Conservation Professionals to create a mutually beneficial relationship in nature-based tourism.

It’s beneficial to our Hawaiian Ecosystems for students to learn and interact with their environment.

We suggest teachers get kids outside, even just on the school’s property. Apply for grants to buy binoculars or go on field trips. Look at Hawai’i Environmental Education Alliance’s Grants Resources page. Teaching kids to use binoculars is fun and educational. Have them count the birds that they see and try to identify them. You can use our coloring sheets or even photos on our website to draw birds. What plants do these birds need to survive? How have their bills adapted to eating these plants? What’s a watershed and how does it affect the ecosystem? Use compasses for a scavenger hunt outside the school. Leaf rubbings are a great way to learn about the different shapes of leaves. Having a native plant garden at the school is a great way to get students outside planting and learning about these plants!

Please teach your students about Hawai’i’s unique native ecology. Many teachers are already doing this. Enjoy these resources and feel free to contact us for more information.
