Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Tour Guide Training
Oct 21, 2021 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PMFree
Environmental interpretation plays a significant role in nature-based tourism and is mutually beneficial to tour operators, visitors, conservation groups, and the nature-based tourism economy. Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Trainings (MMCAT) goal is to educate tour operators and guides about native ecosystems and species found in Hawaii and the projects that are helping to conserve them.
Presentations about conservation and our natural environment are given by representatives from the Maui Invasive Species Committee, East Maui Watershed Partnership, and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. Each training also features a guest speaker.
The guest speaker for this training is Rachel Kingsley, Hawaiʻi Forest Bird Outreach and Education Associate for The ʻAlalā Project and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. Rachel will provide an introduction to the ʻalalā and the ongoing conservation efforts to help save Hawaiʻiʻs native crow.
Trainings are free and are being held via Zoom. To attend everyone must register. Tour operators and guides are encouraged to come. Reserve your spot by registering at www.mauimauka.org
