Founded in the year 2000, The Kohala Center is an independent, community-based center for research, conservation, and education.
We turn research and ancestral knowledge into action, so that communities in Hawai‘i and around the world can thrive—ecologically, economically, culturally, and socially. Our main areas of interest are energy self-reliance, food self-reliance, and ecosystem health.
