With funding from the US Fish & Wildlife with support from the Office of Native Hawaiian Relations in Washington D.C., Malama Ola supports the vision of our community that came together in the aftermath of the April 2018 Floods on Kauai & subsequent floods to develop a plan to inventory, assess, & monitor native fish in Hanalei River/Watershed.

Malama Ola is meant to empower native practitioners & families to develop & implement a meaningful native fish habitat & migration inventory, assessment, & monitoring protocol based on traditional knowledge methodology, namely Kaulana Mahina (Hawaiian moon calendar) which includes elements of Kapu (when it is ok and not ok to fish based on fish spawning patterns) to better understand the impacts of climate change & green waste debris on the native fish habitat, spawning, & migration patterns in Hanalei River.
