Save O‘ahu’s Ka Iwi Coast

The incredible opportunity to protect O‘ahu’s Ka Iwi Coast is coming to a close August 30th. They are only about $105,000 away from the $4 million needed to purchase the land, placing it under protection forever. Information below is from their website


“We have been waiting for years for the chance to protect the Ka Iwi Coast Mauka Lands. My neighbors and I drive past those lands every day, and I know that our island community will come together to protect the ‘aina because this is our home and our Ka Iwi Coast.” – Wilson Kekoa Ho, Waimanalo

The last threatened undeveloped properties along O‘ahu’s Ka Iwi Coast are for sale. We have until August 30, 2015 to raise the remaining $500,000 to purchase these irreplaceable lands so that they can remain undeveloped for all future generations to enjoy. The two Ka Iwi Coast Mauka Lands properties comprise 182 acres mauka of Kalaniana‘ole Highway, between the Hawai‘i Kai Golf Course and Makapu‘u. The hilly properties rise above Awawamalu (Alan Davis) where an ancient fishing village once stood. Development proposals for the properties have varied from a golf school, to a private recreation center, to a vacation cabin subdivision.

Our protection effort honors the 40 years of grassroots advocacy by thousands of Hawai'i residents and visitors, and bold dedication from government leaders that helped protect much of the surrounding Ka Iwi Coast.
