Membership & Volunteering



"Tell me and I forget; show me and I remember; involve me and I understand."    

Coming to Maui?...  We're giving visitors to Maui the opportunity to help protect our island eco-systems and have fun while doing it as a member and volunteer of the American Reef Coalition.

SAVING THE PLANET THROUGH SUSTAINABLE ECO-TOURISM           Join the American Reef Coalition as we explore the islands of Maui and Lana'i.  Members have priority placement on all volunteer opportunities.  You'll see remote areas of the islands that most people can only dream of and you will help save the planet, one natural environment at a time! 


Membershp is $200 per person.  It's tax deductible and your contribution in time and donations help to sustain our efforts to protect and conserve the unique ecosystems of Maui Nui for future generations.

The American Reef Coalition is a Maui based nature conservation nonprofit with a IRS 501(c)(3) designation                

Any questions, check our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) below or you can email: or call 808-870-5817

Q: What volunteer opportunities are available?
A: Every day is different, depending on weather and mission.  We could be in the wet jungle conditions in Maui's watershed removing invasive species, monitoring endemic species or performing trail maintenance inside Haleakala.  We could be in the ocean monitoring sea turtles, marine mammals or removing invasive species.  Or, we could be on the island of Lana'i removing marine debris from the remote windward beaches.
The best thing to do is call us and let us know when you will be available.  We can probably give you a good idea of what to expect.  808-870-5817.
