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

> March - Good news for green sea turtles!!
"... Hannah Bernard, president and co-founder of Hawaii Wildlife Fund, said federal officials propose reclassifying sea turtles into 11 distinct population segments, since turtles in the same patch of ocean - the Hawaiian archipelago, for instance - share a genetic heritage and are isolated from other groups by vast expanses of ocean." > Read more

> January - Another victory in injection wells lawsuit
To help protect Maui's coastal waters from pollution, Hawaii Wildlife Fund was one of four Maui community groups that filed a lawsuit against Maui County. A federal judge in January ruled that all four injection wells at the Lahaina wastewater facility are "illegal" and in violation of the Clean Water Act. > Read more

> January - Joint Statement Against Ching Nomination
Also in January, Hawaii Wlidlife Fund was part of a coalition of 18 groups that blasted Governor David Ige's nomination of Carleton Ching to head the state's Department of Land and Natural Resources Department, saying that Ching (a developer) has no demonstrated expertise in managing the cultural and natural resources that fall under the department's purview.

> How HWF has made a difference in 2014
As we complete our 18th year as one of Hawaii's smallest, yet most influential, nonprofits I am thankful for the help and support we have received. Our many projects are possible only because of our strong ohana, our family of friends. It's thanks to people like you who volunteer in the field with us or donate funds to keep us going that we have successes to share.

Me ka mahalo,

Hannah Bernard, President
Hawaii Wildlife Fund
