   For over forty years community groups across O‘ahu have fought to preserve the natural coastline between Hanauma Bay and Makapu‘u.  The deadline now is August 30th to raise funds to purchase the last mauka parcels.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports on the effort to preserve the  Ka Iwi coast.

   O‘ahu’s eastern shore is unlike any other on the island—rugged lava cliffs drop to the sea then the drive opens onto two of the island’s premiere body surfing sites.  This is the Ka ‘Iwi coast—from Maunalua Bay to Makapu‘u, an area citizen’s groups have struggled 40 years to preserve.  A fundraising effort is underway now to secure the coastline in perpetuity.  HPR’s Noe Tanigawa reports.

The fundraising deadline is August 30th.
