Children of Kauaʻi, I pledge to preserve and protect your special home, to engage with people and places in a balanced, respectful and sustainable way. 


How can I actively participate?

I will take time to learn about the Hawaiian culture and people. 

I will remember I am a guest here and that others are not on vacation.

I will stay in legal and licensed visitor accommodations.

I will give fish and other wildlife space. I know feeding sea life can damage their health and disrupt behavior. 

I will stay off the reef. I understand even brushing coral can kill a whole coral colony. 

I will give space to fishermen so I do not scare the catch away. 

I will only use “reef safe” sunscreens and bug repellent products free of oxybenzone and parabens to avoid ocean and stream contamination.

I will look for welcoming signage to let me know if an area is public. If none is visible I will not intrude.

I will buy flowers and produce from the store or a farmers market and never pick from someone’s yard.  

I will clean and decontaminate all footwear and hiking gear with 70% alcohol or 10% bleach solution to prevent both Rapid Ohiʻa Death and other invasive species from spreading. 

I will protect special places by never geotagging when using social media. 

I will pick up my trash and any I may pass by.  

I will always give aloha, kindness and respect before taking this special experience with me.
