Nuʻu Wetland

Nu‘u contains some of the healthiest coastal wetlands across the islands, which provide habitat for several endangered bird species, including the Ae‘o, or Hawaiian stilt, and ʻAlae keʻokeʻo, or Hawaiian coot.  In addition, the area preserves numerous pre-contact archaeological sites and has been used as a recreational spot by local fisherman for centuries.

The Land Trust’s plans for the property, which was acquired from Kaupō Ranch, include habitat restoration, protection of cultural sites, and educational outreach.
