Pacific Rim Conservation was founded in 2006 as we saw a need for research-based management on native species, particularly birds, throughout Hawaii and the Pacific. Island species, particularly those in Hawaii, are some of the most imperiled on earth and with so few individuals of some species, research was sorely needed to inform management actions. For nine years we filled that niche operating as a small business. In June 2015, we converted from a business to a 501(c)3 non-profit organization in order to better reflect our goals and to ensure that as much of our funding as possible was used for our conservation projects. We are excited to embark on this new chapter of the organization and ensure that the maximum amount of funding we receive goes towards conservation.
We work with a wide variety of partners from state and federal agencies, to non-profit organizations, foundations and individuals. Our goal is to partner with like-minded organizations towards a common goal of conserving and protecting native species. Click on the link above to see some of the organizations we work with.
