Become part of Hawaii’s conservation story

Kalaeokaunaʻoa, or Kahuku Point, is an area of undeveloped coastline on Oʻahu’s North Shore. It is one the few remaining places on Oʻahu with intact coastal strand habitat that includes rare and endangered species of plants and animals including 'ohai (Sesbania tomentosa), Laysan albatrosses (Phoebastria immutabilis), yellow-faced bees (Hylaeus spp.), monk seals (Monachus schauinslandi, including multiple generations of females), and nesting sea turtles (both hawksbill, Eretmochelys imbricata and green, Chelonia mydas). North Shore Community Land Trust’s project is a volunteer-based community stewardship and coastline restoration effort stemming from a partnership between NSCLT, Turtle Bay Resort, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Pacific Islands Coastal Program and Hawai'i Marine Animal Response. Unless otherwise announced, monthly community work days occur on the second Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.  Meet on the Kahuku side of the Turtle Bay Resort parking lot near the helipad by 9 a.m. A NSCLT representative will be there to guide the group on a hike out to the point. More information regarding monthly community work days is listed below:
