The Wildlife Society, Hawaii Chapter
The HWC plays an essential role in rescue and rehabilitation of native birds and bats in Hawaii, and additionally provides valuable support and leadership to state- and region-wide planning and training for response to natural and manmade disasters. There is no other facility in Hawaii that is able to provide such a high level of care for Hawai‘i's precious native wildlife. The HWC has been a leader in engaging community volunteers in the operation of the center, for everything from helping to provide a clean and sterile facility for sick and injured wildlife, to educating visitors to the center, to private aircraft providing transport of injured birds.
