Hawaii Conservation Alliance
The mission of the Hawai'i Conservation Alliance (HCA) is to provide unified leadership and advocacy on conservation issues critical to Hawai'i. Their purpose is to work together to continue a legacy of stewardship and to achieve the goal of promoting the preservation of native terrestrial and marine ecosystems, increasing the diversity of native species, and ensuring that the unique biodiversity of the islands is maintained into the future.
HCA is committed to addressing climate change impacts in Hawai'i. HCA and its member organizations plan to provide critical research on climate change; develop, implement, and share best management practices; develop policy recommendations; promote education and outreach around climate change at the annual Hawai'i Conservation Conference, forums, and leadership summits; coordinate and collaborate between its members; and direct adaptation and mitigation funding to minimize negative effects of climate change in Hawai'i. To help achieve these commitments, HCA is hosting the Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative (PICCC). The PICCC's purpose is to provide information, products, and expertise to help managers of natural and cultural resources incorporate linkages between conservation partnerships and social, cultural, and economic adaptation efforts.
