UH Ecosystems Work is a Cooperative Extension Program that provides evidence-based problem solving and best practices so conservation and watershed workers can effectively maintain and restore thriving ecosystems and landscapes in Hawaiʻi.



The efforts of UH Ecosystems Work are geared toward realizing the following goals:

Connection to ʻĀina. Communities share a deep sense of kuleana for Hawaiiʻs landscapes. They have an understanding of, vision for, and means of contributing to thriving landscapes and ecosystems.


Support for ʻĀina Stewardship Professionals. Conservation and watershed workers have adequate training and career opportunities


Thriving ʻĀina. Conservation and restoration efforts are effective, evidence-based, and targeting clear objectives


Knowledge Sharing. Conservation and watershed stewards’ knowledge, needs, and practices are identified and communicated among each other, researchers, and boundary organizations.
