Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Training
February 24 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 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 will be Dr. J.B. Friday, Extension Forester for the Cooperative Extension Service, Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Management College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, University of Hawaiʻi. J.B. will give an overview of what Rapid ʻŌhiʻa Death (ROD) is, why it could devastate Mauiʻs remaining ʻōhiʻa forests and ways that visitors and tour guides can help prevent its spread in Hawaiʻi.
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
