Education is the key to preserving biodiversity

Your Contribution Supports:

Safeguard Biodiversity

The plants are part of us and deserve our efforts to ensure their survival. Your donation helps us manage our accessioning program, our rare plant collection, and living seed bank.

Promote Education

We provide the garden as a living classroom for local teachers to use in their curriculum development for virtual and classroom based students of all ages along with free educational tours, field trips, and programming for our local k-12 schools.

Advance Science

Working with ASU, University of Hawaii and program partners we serve as a hub for scientific research and development around sustainability and biodiversity.

Sustainable Leadership

Together with our business community we strive to be a global leader in implementing the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. We aim to provide thoughtful eco tourism to protect the bioreserve and educate visitors.

Why Give?

At a time when our planet is losing biodiversity at alarming rates, your donation is more important than ever. Each donation, membership, and purchase supports our mission to serve as a place for learning, a living seed bank, and a study center for biodiversity. Our bioreserve is a microclimate unlike anywhere on the planet where the connection between plants + oceans + people collide. Your donation is tax deductible and supports our work to serve as a hub for sustainability.

Help support the  Heliconia Trail recovery.

Why Give?

Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Garden experienced a true disaster on November 22nd, 2022. During heavy rainfall a 100-year-old Banyan Tree fell leaving ruin to part of our garden. Included in the destruction was a one of a kind Corypha Palm. Several different varieties of Heleconias, Alpinias, Anthuriums, and Calatheas were also lost totaling the estimated damage over $27,300. It is Hawaii Tropical Bioreserve and Gardens hope to replant the area with native plants highlighting the terraces left by early settlers. This donation would help us finance the replanting and reforestation of the devastated area left by the Banyan Tree.
