“Through HILT, communities across Hawaii have protected 21,650 acres in perpetuity. These lands comprise 57 places that sustain current and future generations, from the fertile soils of local farms and ranches, to native forests creating drinking water, to coastlines rejuvenating us and providing fish, to historical landscapes where we pass on the traditions and cultural practices of these islands,” said Laura Kaakua.
