CORAL REEF RESTORATION & PRESERVATION, YOGA & MEDITATION, NEW IDEAS FOR CONSCIOUS ACTION.
We have partnered with Mālama Pūpūkea-Waimea to restore coral reef by planting native plants in order to reduce erosion. Together, we will learn about how we can support ecological values, understand it's cultural importance, discover what the pollution threats & our plans to address them.
We will set up home base at Camp Mokuleia, our beachfront lodging where we will practice yoga & mediation, share meals & host workshops that challenge us to rethink our conscious actions & make new decisions about how we take care of ourselves and our environment.
WHY CORAL REEFS?
Coral Reefs are the rain forests of the ocean. They cover a mere 1% of the ocean floor, yet astoundingly they are home to approximately 25% of all marine life! Sadly, today coral reefs around the world are in grave danger. Some estimates show that approximately 10% of the world’s coral reefs are already dead, and about 60% of the world’s reefs are at risk due to human-related activities. By the 2030, 90% of reefs are expected to be at risk from both human activities and climate change.

MOKULEIA, NORTH SHORE OF O'AHU
Remember the carefree bliss of summer camp as a kid? Well, we are taking you back...
For five nights we will be taking over the fabled North Shore of O'ahu, a coastline that is as famed for its legendary waves as it is for its natural environment. Campfire jams, a ropes course, and breaking curfew to sleep under the stars.
Being connected to the land is what the North Shore is all about, and Camp Mokuleia sits upon on the untamed westward shore of O'ahu: sand, sea turtles, and sunsets galore.
Locals care for the land in the spirit of 'malama': which, loosely translated, means to care for, to nurture, and to have passion for the land and its people. Its energy is also said to return to a person like a boomerang. But one never truly understand the true meaning of 'malama' until we have had a face-to-face encounter with it. Which is precisely why we will spend two days getting our hands dirty at Shark's Cove, and then two days getting into nature: hiking, meditation and doing yoga in the Waianae mountains and surfing the waves that have been birthing legends since the 70s.
