Although we are small, we are mighty. And when we combine our efforts with other like-minded groups, great things happen.

> Sept - Board of Directors & stocking native mullet
This month, HWF reached a major milestone by implementing the strategic plan developed during our planning retreat in June, including electing a new Board of Directors.
Also in September, we partnered with Oceanic Institute to stock a traditional Hawaiian fish pond with native mullet, which built on a project we initiated in July with the help of students from Moondance Adventures.

> Aug - Keeping watch over sea turtle nests
Sea turtle nesting season kept us busy in August, first patrolling for tracks, then protecting the nests of Hawksbill sea turtles on Maui. Three Maui beaches now have nests on them. The third one is on our first new nesting beach in 14 years.

> July - New sponsor & help from Moondance
We announced a new sponsor Reyn Stooner, an Oahu company that is donating proceeds to HWF from its Hawaiian print Eco Bags that they make from leftover Aloha shirts.
In July, HWF also hosted a youth group from the mainland, Moondance Adventures, whose high school students helped us restore sea turtle habitat and dig native Hawaiian fish ponds.

> June - Planning HWF's 20th Anniversary
Our core team met with facilitator Jane Schumacher on Hawaii Island June 3 and 4 to formulate a strategic plan for our nonprofit organization based on high-performance principles.

> May - Focusing on high-performance
HWF team members attended Hawaii Community Foundation's Advancing Nonprofit Excellence Conference on Oahu on May 7, gaining important tools for our Strategic Planning Retreat in June. > Read more
