    Detailed Information:
    The only sanctuary in Hawaii and one of only 42 fully accredited rehabilitation facilities in the US. Hosts a great web site for sudents and educators.

    Because of State requirements and the fact that the sanctuary is located on the same property as our home, our facility is not open to the general public. However, in order to share these animals with the community, we have created an educational program for school children. (Special educational tours for groups and adults can be arranged with advance notice. Please call for more information.)

    The Curator goes to the classroom and teaches two sessions then arranges a field trip to the sanctuary. Program topics include: “The difference between wild and domestic”,” What animals belong in Hawaii”, “Extinct is gone forever”, “Now that they are here how do we care for them?” The final lecture is given as we walk through the Sanctuary surrounded by the animals.

    Our After-School Mentoring program is open to intermediate grade students. To apply students contact us by email. Vet student interns and prevet interns spend summer months at the sanctuary learning animal behavior and communication.

    We work with our State’s DLNR as well as the USFandW Service to care for injured local bird species. All releasable birds are set free within 90 days and those deemed unreleaseable are placed according to his direction. Some of the birds of prey stay with us, giving the children a chance to observe these magnificent raptors up close. Our Federal possession permits allow these birds a safe home, here in this educational facility.

    We are always training keepers to learn the full range of animal and sanctuary care as well as training volunteers who work outside pens to assist in general zoo maintenance. Volunteers undergo a training program so that they, and the animals they care for, remain safe. Volunteers have to commit to a six-month period, but the actual time they are able to assist can vary widely to fit with their availability. The qualifications for volunteers are: enjoying animals and children, reliability, excellent observation skills, and an ability (innate or learned) to understand the animals. No experience is required.
