Pearl Harbor
1 Arizona Memorial Place
Honolulu, Hawaii 96818

Hawaii Week for the Animals is the perfect time to say thank you to U.S. Navy, Pearl Harbor and all the brave military men, women, K9's and their handlers.  God Bless Our Troops. We love you and thank you for your service! 

Honolulu is a large metropolitan area. Please plan for traffic. The USS Arizona Memorial is approximately a 45-minute drive from Waikiki. Take Ala Moana Blvd. / Nimitz Highway or (H-1) West to begin. 

While on H-1; look for the USS Arizona/Stadium exit, #15A. Do not take the Pearl Harbor exit. This will take you to Naval Station Pearl Harbor not the USS Arizona Memorial. Continue on HI-99 (Kamehameha Highway) and turn left at the 4th traffic light onto Arizona Memorial Place. At the base of the hill turn right and the parking lot is on the left. An overflow parking lot is on the right for use later in the day. Please park before unloading. (Pearl Harbor Day is December 7th.)

Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project  Planting Day at MFBRP 
Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project 
2465 Olinda Road Makawao, Hawaii 96768 (808) 573-0280 

Please RSVP on our Facebook event OR email [email protected] 

Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project is dedicated to the recovery of Maui's native forest bird species and their native forest habitat. Most of our work is conducted in remote high elevation native forests of East Maui. But our office is located on Olinda, above Makawao town. 
Recent sightings of native birds, like the Iiwi, at lower elevations has encouraged some people to start planting native trees in their backyards. With this in mind and the hope that we can create native forest "sanctuaries" in our yards, we will be planting 200 trees at our facility. We will also be transplanting native ferns. 

Bring outdoor clothing and shoes, layers (it can be cold), rain gear (we have extra sets), hat, gloves, sunscreen. If you have a digging tool, bring it. We will have some of those as well.
Bring food and water as well. There will be a house nearby that we can use the restroom and kitchen. We will have some snacks and juices.

We have already planted over 10,000 trees in the Nakula Natural Area Reserve. Mahalo for your support of native forest bird recovery and forest restoration on Maui!
We successfully raised funds to plant 1,125 trees at our restoration site in Nakula Natural Area Reserve. We are continuing to collect seeds for more plants to be grown and then purchased. We will continue to take donations to help us purchase plants to restore this dry mesic forest. Please visit our Plant a Tree, Save the Forest, Save the Birds Campaign for more information or email us directly for more information.   Visit

Combining the pioneering Tellington TTouch with special ground exercises and under-saddle work, this training method offers an approach based on cooperation rather than domination and understanding rather than control. You will learn to chunk down the training process into incremental steps that are scientifically proven to reduce fearfulness in horses thereby increasing potential for learning.

You have several opportunities to work with Linda or Robyn Hood, Linda’s sister, or TTouch Instructors Debby Potts and Edie Jane Eaton who has been part of the Tellington team for two decades. In a week-long workshop you will experience this remarkable training approach for yourself.

Kauai Humane Society 3-825 Kaumualii Hwy.   Lihue   (Just west of Puhi on your way to Poipu)  Lihue, HI 96766

Gomez’s Galley, the KHS pet food bank, was started by a dedicate KHS volunteer, and named after her beloved, small-but-mighty cat, Gomez. The pet food bank was created as part of KHS’s ongoing effort to keep pets and their families together.

When economic issues threaten a pet owner’s ability to continue caring for his or her companion animal, the Kauai Humane Society helps by offering a supply of pet food from the Galley.

Pet food is donated by KHS supporters who help to keep our Galley full. We are hoping that by providing pet food on a regular basis, people will be able to keep their pets with them for life.

In addition to picking-up free pet food at KHS, we are proud to be working in partnership with St Catherine’s Church in Kapaa and St. William’s Church in Hanalei. Pet food may be picked up at those churches’ food pantries once a month during their normal hours of operation. Please check with the church’s food pantry volunteers to determine the days that pet food will be available.

KHS also provides low-cost or free spay/neuter surgery for dogs and cats of Kauai.  Tuesday - Saturday  8:00 am - 6:00 pm -

*KHS adoptions are from Tuesday thru Friday 11:00 am- 6:00 pm.
*Saturday & Monday 10:00 am-4:00 pm

It’s because of our caring community we are able to provide refuge for Kauai’s neglected, abandoned and abused animals. If it weren’t for compassionate folks like you supporting us since 1952, we wouldn’t be able to achieve our mission to strengthen our bond with our pets as well as provide informed care for all of Kauai’s animals.

About twice a week, a visitor to the lush Hawaiian paradise of Kauai island will fall in love — with a shelter dog, who’s been borrowed from the local rescue group for a tropical outing. And if things go especially well, it might end with a plane ride to the mainland.

“Currently, we have Kauai Humane Society alumni residing in more than 25 states and four Canadian provinces,” says Penny Cistaro, spokesperson for the group. “We estimate that more than 100 dogs have found their new loving home as a result of a field trip.”

After Dark in the Park - Volcano Awareness Month
Kīlauea Visitor Center     Volcano, HI 96785 (808) 985-6000

Kīlauea is currently home to two remarkably long eruptions. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō and other vents on the volcano’s East Rift Zone have erupted lava flows for more than 3 decades. At the summit of Kīlauea, an active vent within Halemaʻumaʻu Crater has fed a lava lake for over 8 years. Monitoring each of these eruptions presents unique challenges and requires using various tools and techniques, ranging from low-tech to state-of-the-art. USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologist Matt Patrick explains the toolkit he uses to map lava flows and measure lava lakes, and describes how scientists continuously improve their methods of tracking volcanic activity

 Park entrance fees apply.

Help Save The Donkeys of Hawaii
West Hawaii Humane Society Inc
Street: PO Box 2695  Kailua Kona, HI 96745-2695

They are affectionately known as the Kona Nightingales because they bray or "sing" to each other as they return to the mountains at dusk. The herd is currently estimated at between 400-600 animals, in more than 2500 acres of private land. 

If the population continues to increase scarce resources will quickly be depleted and the donkeys may suffer from starvation or dehydration. 

In addition, some in the community have seen these animals as a growing nuisance, competing with local rancher’s cattle grazing areas, etc. Phone: (808) 329-8398 and learn more about this program and how you can help

Volcano Art Center EXHIBIT: “Tī and Seas” 
by Steve Irvine
OPENING Reception 5:00 pm-7:00 pm 

Volcano Art Center Gallery Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park
9-4074 Old Volcano Road Volcano, HI 96785 Phone: (808) 967-8222

Volcano Art Center announces the art exhibit Tī and Seas featuring a new collection of oil paintings by Pahoa resident Steve Irvine. The exhibition is open to the public from Saturday, February 17th through Sunday, March 25th, 9 am – 5pm daily at the Volcano Art Center Gallery in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Irvine will be present at the opening reception on Saturday, February 17th from 5-7 PM sharing his inspirations and techniques.

Born in Los Angeles, California, Irvine came to Hawaiʻi to attend college. The waves weren’t so bad either! In 1983 Steve received a Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies specializing in Fine Arts from the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo. Irvine has been painting and surfing ever since. No stranger to East Hawaiʻiʻs art scene, Steve’s work has appeared in the annual juried Spring and Fall Arts Exhibit at Wailoa Center and East Hawaii Cultural Center almost every year since 1986 and he has had two previous exhibits at the Volcano Art Center in 2004 and 2009. To date he has received twelve awards in recognition of his artistic merits.

“Volcano Art Center is glad to feature Steve’s work again in a solo exhibition, states Gallery Manager, Emily C. Weiss. “His work has always appealed to collectors for its distinctive high quality, use of bright primary colors and affordability. Stylistically, Irvine’s paintings blend impressionistic principles into a unique form of expressionism. While focusing on the realistic representation of Polynesian Tī plants and the ever-changing ocean, Steve’s primary focus for this exhibit is actually on the quality of light present in both subjects.”EXHIBIT: “Tī and Seas” by Steve Irvine   Feb 17 @ 9:00 am – Mar 25 @ 5:00 pm
