Who authorizes our work?
Hoaloha 'Āina (aka South Maui Volunteers)  works under the guidance and direction of Maui County Parks, State DNLR, County of Maui Planning Department, and the on-island  UH Sea Grant Coastal Hazard Specialist and Geologist.
Volunteers on Vacation Program: 
The Pacific Whale Foundation has included Hoaloha 'Aina in their listing of volunteer opportunities for tourists.  When the visitor has contributed three hours, PWF offers a free gift, often a tote or poster that commemorates their willingness to give up a bit of their vacation to give back to the community.

Purpose Statement: 
South Maui Volunteers work on the restoration and maintenance of beach and dune areas of South Maui's beach parks.  We believe healthy dunes are Mother Nature’s way of protecting our coastal areas and by working with the geologists at UH Sea Grant and the Maui Parks Department we can help reduce sand dune erosion and encourage natural dune growth.  We accomplish this by installing and maintaining site-specific dune pathways, protecting dune fields between parks and beaches, and by promoting native dune and beach plants.
