For the Billabong Pro Pipeline, WSL teamed up with We Are One Ocean coalition partner North Shore Community Land Trust on a wetland restoration project in Waialeʻe, just down the road from Pipeline, to remove invasive grasses from the wetland taro patch and plant taro. With WSL's support, throughout the year North Shore Community Land Trust will be able to:
Lead 24 community restoration days Establish community based educational programs Grow healthy traditional Hawaiian crops to feed the community Continue to restore habitat for native waterbirds, fish, and plants
Since 2020, North Shore Community Land Trust (NSCLT) has led the restoration of a 30-acre coastal wetland site at Waialeʻe which was once an abundant food system and still hosts several species of endangered waterbirds and fish to this day. If you would like to support, consider stopping by Waialeʻe to turn your hands to the soil. For more information, visit northshoreland.org.
