Mālama ʻAe Kai
About Mālama ʻAe Kai
KAʻEHU is a nonprofit organization that coordinates youth and community programs that are
culturally-grounded, integrated with STEM-grounded classes. We understand the importance and
wisdom of traditional Hawaiian land and ocean stewardship practices, which is grounded in science
and easily translates to modern STEM approaches to climate change and shoreline restoration.
Working with over 2,500 students, community members, scientists and experts, we have been
fortunate to have the training and educational workshops to empower the Maui community with the
skills and tools to manage their most precious natural resources.
After hearing about our successful youth programs, we are excited to announce our partnership with Jean-Michel Cousteau and the Ocean Futures Society creating the Mālama 'Ae Kai (Coastal Caretakers) program to help restore Kaʻehu Bay. Jean-Michel Cousteau and OFS will work with our staff and team of scientists over the next 3 years to help restore the coral reefs, marine life, shoreline and coastal wetlands. Mālama 'Ae Kai (Coastal Caretakers) will be "Integrating Traditional Hawaiian Stewardship Practices and Modern Scientific Approaches to climate change and shoreline restoration.
We look forward to having Jean-Michel Cousteau and OFS visit Ka'ehu Bay this summer for a site visit and Meet & Greets with the community. Stay tuned for more information and dates on our summer programs and events.
