Food Forest

It’s a forest managed to provide habitat and food for recovering endangered bird species.  The Keauhou Bird Conservation Center (KBCC) Discovery Forest is a project and part of Hawaiʻi Forest Institute’s (HFI) Mahalo ʻĀina: Give Back to the Forest Program.  KBCC is reestablishing self-sustaining populations of critically endangered Hawaiian birds in the wild.

The Hawai‘i Endangered Bird Conservation Program breeds endangered Hawaiian birds in captivity, for release back into the wild.   The trees planted school groups are the beginning of a new native tree forest that will support the native bird species in the future.
