Getting involved in conservation efforts is a great way to make a positive impact on the environment and connect with like-minded individuals. Whether you're interested in volunteering at a local wildlife refuge, participating in beach cleanups, or supporting a nonprofit organization, there are plenty of ways to get involved and help protect Hawaii's natural beauty.

Work with Refuge Staff

As a volunteer, you'll have the opportunity to help maintain the refuge and participate in a variety of activities, from planting native plants to monitoring bird populations. You'll also get to learn more about the unique ecosystem of the refuge and its importance in preserving Hawaii's natural heritage. By volunteering, you can make a positive impact on the environment and connect with like-minded individuals who share your passion for conservation. 

Outreach & education 

Community outreach and environmental education are key components of the National Wildlife Refuge system, and the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge is no exception. Through a variety of programs and events, the friends group and refuge staff works to engage the local community in conservation efforts and promote environmental awareness. From seasonal guided bird tours to classroom presentations, these initiatives help to foster a deeper appreciation for Hawaii's unique ecosystem and inspire individuals to take action to protect it.

Beach Cleanups

Hawaii's beaches are beautiful, but they can become littered with trash. By volunteering to clean up the sand and water, we protect marine life and preserve the natural beauty of our coastline. Whether you're a local or a visitor, you can make a difference by participating in beach cleanups or simply picking up trash as you enjoy the sun and surf. Let's work together to keep Hawaii's beaches clean for generations to come! 


If you're passionate about conservation and want to make a difference in Hawaii, consider getting involved with a nonprofit group like the Friends of Oahu NWR. By volunteering your time or making a donation, you can help to support important conservation initiatives and ensure that Hawaii's unique residents are safe for generations to come.
