The success of our organization depends on attracting new sources of revenue from a plethora of sources. Without your help, we cannot effectively conserve native Hawaiian floral biodiverstiy. Your skills will empower us to fulfill goals of HSPC, collaborate w/ conservation agencies.
We currently have a Strategy in place which defines our goals which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a website and an office at Lyon Arboretum and the ability to provide any other information you need.
We are a familiy-oriented group. In our former (and much smaller) lab building, we used to sit pretty much on top of each other to eat our lunches. It reminds me of the small farm house I grew up in, and facilitates a family vibe.
The Laukahi Network is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the protection and conservation of Hawai`i's unique floral biodiversity.
Through the establishment of this Network, relationships and communication among conservation agencies across the state is facilitated. This allows for collective planning and goal setting for efficient resource use, metrics to monitor progress and goals, information exchange, and creates opportunities for attracting new revenue sources.
What a wonderful collaboration this was for Laukahi, and myself. Leslie helped to create an impactful, succinct pitch that resonated with many potential funders at the HCA conference. Leslie was very easily contacted, and answered all of my naive questions about this type of work, completely. I enjoyed this collaborative effort very much, and am eternally grateful for the opportunity to work with someone so intelligent, kind, and adaptive to my field. I learned a ton about this aspect of my new career, and hope to elaborate on what she has taught me in the years to come. Thank you, Leslie!!
What a refreshing, fun new friendship I have created with my point of contact - Emily! She was fantastic to collaborate with - responsive, interested, appreciative. I learned a lot about this type of collaboration, this organization as well as this field of interest. I look forward to learning how the networking goes at her Conference.
