About Malama Na 'Apapa
Malama Na 'Apapa is a non-profit organization committed to preserving, sustaining and restoring Kauai's Coral Reefs.
Our Goal is to stop the steady decline in coral reef health and propogate future coral growth. We will do this by:
1. Sharing information and knowledge with Schools, Scuba divers, Snorkelers, Fisherman, Mariners, Landlovers and anyone else that this list has not included.
2) Volunteer programs such as beach clean ups, Reef clean ups, Coral cleaning, Alien Limu removal.
3) Train and study with NOAA marine biologists to increase our understanding of Coral reef health and propogation.
4) Increase our reef cleaning efforts by implementing advance cleaning methods through Grants, Local business support, Donations and in kind work programs.
We invite all people to join our alliance and help preserve, sustain and restore our Coral Reefs here on Kauai and around the world.
