Event organizers say environmental interpretation plays a significant role in nature-based tourism and is beneficial to tour operators, visitors, conservation groups, and the nature-based tourism economy.

The goal of the Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Training is to educate tour operators and guides about native ecosystems and species found in Hawaiʻi and the projects that are helping conserve it.

Presentations about conservation and the natural environment are given by representatives from the Maui Invasive Species Committee, East Maui Watershed Partnership, and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. Special guests from a different conservation organization will be present at each training.
