We engage with Pono Pacific to execute conservation management strategies and they really help us to take care of Hawaii forests. We chose Pono Pacific because of their commitment to developing a strong workforce in Hawaii, to bringing our need for good land management and stewardship together with building careers for our community. Choosing to work with Pono Pacific is choosing to support our local workforce, good land management and care for our precious resources.
— Ulalia Woodside, Executive Director of The Nature Conservancy Hawaii
Pono Pacific has technical expertise in endangered species protection and fencing that very few organizations in Hawaii have. We also chose Pono Pacific because of their reputation and quality work they do. The Pono Pacific teams are so respectful and really care about the place that they’re working in and the natural resources.
