One of our big projects on Oahu is managing the Kawainui-Hamakua Complex in collaboration with the Division of State Parks and the local community. The Complex includes not only Kawainui Marsh—the largest remaining wetland in the State of Hawai'i—but also nearby H?m?kua Marsh and a portion of the H?m?kua Marsh watershed, the hillside of Pu'uoehu. In 2005, the Kawainui and H?m?kua Marsh Complex was designated a Ramsar Wetland of International Importance. The entire project area comprises nearly 1,000 acres.
