Kaho'olawe
Kaho'olaweOverview
With a population of zero, Kaho‘olawe is truly an unscathed gem. Such a place has been marked with a fruitful history. The evolutionary progression from criminal containment to bombardment has presented Kaho‘olawe with a challenging future. 

Having been used as a U.S Navy’s bombing site in the mid-1900s, Kaho‘olawe was put under the protection of the Kaho‘olawe Island Reserve Commission (KIRC) in 1994. KIRC aims to nurture and restore the island so that one day it will be able to house an abundance of biodiversity.

With the help of volunteer’s, restoration projects grow larger and stronger every day. As a result of these efforts, Kaho‘olawe hopes to one day recapture its former glory.
