"Ultimately what the Hawai‘i Wildlife Center will do is create a place of hope for all of us who love and care so deeply
about Hawai‘i’s beauty. This isn’t just a refuge for native wildlife, this is a refuge for all of us, our spirit, our hope
that we can help to reverse the destructive impacts we’ve had on Hawai‘i's wildlife, its environment and ecology.
And what you do for Hawai‘i’s living systems you do for the earth’s living systems.”
