Established in 1994, this 10-acre non-profit facility breeds nene, the endangered Hawaiian state bird, at Kakaha`ia Pond east of Kaunakakai. The four-pound indigenous geese nearly became extinct due to hunting by humans, dogs and other animals. The organization offers several educational field trips. Learn about nene behavior on an overnight campout or take a trip to Kaunakakai's wastewater treatment plant, home to several endangered wetland birds. Call in advance for tour information and directions.
