Trilogy's Blue Aina Campaign

The BlueʽAina program is the environmental arm of Trilogy Excursions, which not only focuses on cleaning the island’s reefs and shorelines, but also on supporting local non-profits, educating community members about environmental initiatives, and raising awareness towards protecting our island’s sensitive marine environment. 

On Earth Day, April 22nd, Trilogy will host a Blue Aina sail for MFBRP. It is sponsored by the Fairmont Kea Lani, with food provided by Leilani's. It will set sail from Kaanapali. Tickets for the reef cleanup and ocean sail are only $30 and are available for purchase through the Hawaii National Marine Sanctuary Foundation by either calling (808) 879-2818, x239, or by emailing blueainareservations@gmail.com. There will be a short presentation by MFBRP's project coordinator, Hanna Mounce.


Maui Charity Walk

Help Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project raise $6,000 for this year's Visitor Industry Charity Walk (www.charitywalkhawaii.org).

This event is a fun way to raise money for local charities including Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. The event takes place on Saturday, May 9th at the War Memorial Soccer Field in Kahului, Maui. The event is a walk that starts at 7 am and includes 11 stations along the 5K route. Stations along the route are entertaining and supplied with refreshments. At the end of the walk, walkers will be treated to great food & beverages, a keiki tent, health screenings, amazing entertainment, and door prizes (including a round trip ticket to Las Vegas!).

You can help by either donating to Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project’s Charity Walk Fund or by being a Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project walker. Walkers help raise funds towards our ultimate $6,000 goal and get to enjoy the Visitor Industry Charity Walk’s festivities. Walkers have to raise a minimum of $35 in order to participate in the walk. Walkers, who raise more, get more prizes. For instance:

  • Raise $50 and receive an MFBRP t-shirt (so you can proudly wear it during the walk)
  • Raise $100 and receive an MFBRP t-shirt AND mug
  • Raise $300 and receive an MFBRP t-shirt, mug, and a Kiwikiu plush toy.

See how much you, your co-workers, friends, family, and others can help raise for this year’s Visitor Industry Charity Walk! Please contact Teia at teia@mauiforestbirds.org for more information, to get your packets or to donate. You must fill out your Walker Form through us in order for your donations to go to MFBRP. All funds going to the Maui Charity Walk Fund are tax deductible and the Visitor Industry Charity Walk matches these funds by up to an additional 25% more. Checks should be made out to Charity Walk and need to be received by May 2nd.

We appreciate any help and participation with this event and hope we can reach our goal! 

On the day of the event, Walkers should bring Route Cards (the white cardboard sheet behind walker form). Get this stamped at each check point and receive a free gift at the end of the event.

These are tax deductible donations. 


Maui Brewing Company Pint Nights

Since September 2009, the Maui Brewing Company has been hosting benefit nights for the Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. Maui Brewing Co. (MBC) is a truly Hawaiian brewery, and proud to make 100% of their beer, canned and draft, in Hawaii. Recognized as Hawaii's #1 craft beer since 2005, the company has a strong commitment to the local economy and the environment. Through the years, MBC has become a perennial supporter to many island charities and non-profit organizations like MFBRP.

Plant a Tree Campaign

Throughout July 2013, we successfully raised funds to plant 1,125 trees at our restoration site in Nakula Natural Area Reserve. We are continuing to collect seeds for more plants to be grown and then purchased. We will continue to take donations to help us purchase plants to restore this dry mesic forest. Please visit our Plant a Tree, Save the Forest, Save the Birds Campaign for more information or email us directly.
