Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea is a volunteer-based North Shore nonprofit, formed in 2005 as part of the State’s Makai Watch program. Our programs educate residents of Hawai‘i and visitors to the Pūpūkea Marine Life Conservation District about the importance of this special area’s marine life and protected status.
Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea works hand-in-hand with the community and government partners to “kōkua” or take care of the fish, sea turtles, coral reefs, and other marine life that call this area their home. Solely supported by private donors and grant funding, we train and actively engage community members through a weekly outreach tent, educational programs for youth, biological assessments of the fish and reef, monitoring of human usage, prevention and reporting of illegal activities, coastal restoration, and beach cleanups.
