All in a day’s work

Lahaina’s Palani Wright serves on front lines protecting West Maui’s watershed

Catching a ride on a helicopter, trekking through jungle and rappelling down cliffs are all in a day's work for Palani Wright. The Lahainaluna High School graduate helps protect Maui's native forest with the West Maui Mountains Watershed Partnership. The nonprofit organization of public and private landowners works to stop the spread of invasive species in the mountains from Ukumehame to Honolua to Waiehu and Waikapu, protecting the island's natural watershed.
