The IVHQ Hawaii Program is based on the island of Oahu, a perfect base for nature lovers to explore rainforests, mountains, volcanoes, waterfalls and an extensive selection of coastline and beaches. The Native Habitat Restoration project provides a unique opportunity to work on a range of different initiatives focused on conservation and environmental restoration. Volunteers are led by a team of local environmental advocates in addressing the issue of marine debris and plastic pollution through beach clean ups and analyzing debris. Ocean pollution is a worldwide problem that is particularly evident in Hawaii, as major ocean currents carry large amounts plastic waste from around the world onto Hawaii’s northern and eastern shores. The program also aims to train volunteers to rethink their consumer behaviors and provide them with tools to continue addressing the issue when they return home.
