On Maui, there is an immediate need to restore high-elevation forests. These forests provide the only suitable habitat for Maui's native honeycreepers. MFBRP is restoring native forest on the southeast slope of Haleakalā, Maui in order to reintroduce Kiwikiu to this area where it once thrived. This forest is not only beneficial for the birds, but also for our watershed, which in turn provides water for our island. Learn more about our restoration and reintroduction plans.
We encourage you to participate in our Plant a Tree Program.
