Molokai, the "real" Hawaii nobody knows. 65 miles and a world away from Honolulu. Home to our country's longest fringing reef system and the world's highest sea cliffs. A population of just 7,000 people - with over 60% identifying as native Hawaiian - but with the highest rates of poverty and unemployment in the state. An island lost in time and in a race against environmental and cultural extinction.
The island faces environmental and development challenges unique to the Hawaiian islands. It was once home to the world's largest pineapple plantation. Today nearly half the island is given over to cattle ranching. And with unemployment twice as high as the rest of the state, there is intense pressure to exploit what is left of the island's natural resources.
The mission of the Moloka'i Land Trust is to protect and restore the land, natural and cultural resources of Moloka'i, and to perpetuate the unique Native Hawaiian traditions and character of the islands for the benefit of the future generations of all Moloka'i.
