KUPU Summer Interns
For the second summer in a row, Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea hosted a team of KUPU – Hawai’i Youth Conservation Corp interns. These fantastic young adults helped us with outreach and education, Makai Watch, biological monitoring, our native Hawaiian plant coastal restoration project, beach cleanups, and more. We couldn’t be prouder to have worked with such smart, energetic, respectful, and positive individuals.
“The Hawaiʻi Youth Conservation Corps is centered on environmental conservation, restoration, education, and cultural awareness. HYCC gives individuals the opportunity to work outdoors with environmental agencies across Hawai`i and learn the principles of natural resource stewardship, while gaining valuable experience, knowledge, and skills that assist them in continuing their life pursuits”.
