The Kualoa private nature reserve is more than just the premier place in Kaneohe, Hawaii, for zip line tours, horseback riding, and beach activities. Although one of the primary objectives of the 4,000-acre nature reserve is to help families explore the place “where legends are made” — including sites used for filming movies like “Jurassic World,” “Godzilla,” “Kong: Skull Island,” and “Jurassic Park” — just as important to the Kualoa team is environmental preservation and sustainability.
In addition to offering an extensive range of tours, the owners and employees at Kualoa also provide educational activities so visitors can learn about how the nature reserve contributes to the preservation of the land.
What Is Kualoa’s Sustainability Plan?
The Kualoa sustainability plan has four areas of focus: natural area, environmental conservation, cultural and historical stewardship, and contributions to the local community.
Within the natural area focus, Kualoa offers horseback riding, ATV tours, and island tours of the nature reserve so guests can see the beauty of Hawaii up close and personal. Part of every tour and activity includes information about the natural history, geology, flora, and fauna on the island.
The environmental conservation arm of the nature reserve’s sustainability plan includes the mission to malama’ āina, or care for and preserve the native environment. Employees and volunteer community work groups participate in projects to protect rare and endangered plants, removing invasive species, restore ancient fishponds and taro patches, and more.
Cultural & Historical Stewardship
Kualoa is also committed to sharing the culture and the history of the island with visitors. All tours are approved by an expert, and the employees receive extensive training and education on Hawaiian history and culture.
Contributions to the Local Community
The last aspect of the sustainability plan is contributions to the local community. Every year, Kualoa works with 12,000 local students, offering nature walks, environmental exploration activities, team building challenge courses, and more.
