In 2011, a group of conservation professionals organized the formation of the Kauai Conservation Alliance (KCA). KCA is a diverse partnership of organizations and individuals that share the same vision: a Kauai with healthy and diverse native ecosystems, accomplished with community-supported conservation. The mission of the KCA is to provide leadership, education, and outreach to advance conservation of Kauai's native ecosystems.
