Nene O Moloka‘i is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation created to establish and preserve wild nene on the island of Moloka‘i, while emphasizing education through community involvement. Founded in 1994, Nene O Moloka‘i is the first non-profit in Hawai‘i authorized by the State of Hawai‘i, Division of Forestry & Wildlife to breed and release nene. Although the 10-year-long agreement with the state has expired, Nene O Moloka‘i continues to maintain a small flock of nene for educational purposes, and has expanded its focus to increase awareness about Hawai‘i's other four endangered waterbirds - Hawaiian Coot (‘alae ‘ke‘oke‘o), Hawaiian Moorhen (‘alae ‘ula), Hawaiian Duck (koloa maoli), and Hawaiian Stilt (ae‘o). Nene O Moloka‘i is operated by volunteers and is funded through private donations, and foundation and corporate grants.

Mahalo nui loa for the continued support of Pacific Source, the R.W. Meyer Sugar Mill Museum and Moloka‘i Museum and Cultural Center.
