Rising 10,000 feet from the sea to the summit of Haleakalā, the park protects and preserves a striking variety of natural landscapes ranging from tropical rainforest to subalpine desert.

Haleakalā National Park also contains a vast amount of Hawaiian cultural and historical resources within the two park districts, Summit and Kīpahulu, that are important to preserve and provide educational interpretation. 

With the most endangered and endemic species of any other national park, the ecosystems and species of Haleakalā National Park are vitally important to protect. Native species such as the Maui Parrotbill and other rare birds are in danger of extinction, with Haleakalā National Park and other organizations working hard to determine the best way to protect and increase their populations.
Endangered species protection and recovery has been successful in Haleakalā National Park, with the reintroduction of Nēnē and the preservation of the ʻāhinahina (Haleakalā Silversword). The Conservancy supports the efforts made towards preserving the species of Haleakalā National Park.

We focus on supporting park projects and programs that fall into our three Areas of Giving: Conservation, Education, and Preservation.
