WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? WHY SHOULD PEOPLE SERVE?

This program is very important to preserve the beautiful, important, and unique environment of Hawaii, whether it is concerning animals, plants, communities, or ecosystems and keeping them from extinction. This program often works with urgent issues such as endangered animals or plants that will greatly affect whole island upon extinction. Disaster relief is needed to support all communities on the island to preserve human resources and living conditions. The benefits of this program are priceless and are available nowhere else! Volunteers will take home outstanding experiences, responsibilities, knowledge, a variety of new skills, appreciation of the environment, the pride of helping, the appreciation of hard work, etc.
