1997 ECO-PACKAGES OFFERED
AT THE KAPALUA RESORT
BENEFIT MAUIS ENVIRONMENT
For the fifth consecutive year, the Kapalua resort on Maui is offering their popular "Eco-Packages" in 1997. Available through the resorts three properties -- The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, The Kapalua Villas and The Kapalua Bay Hotel -- these all-inclusive vacation packages combine guests favorite activities at substantial savings with an even greater value
. . . environmental preservation.
Aptly named "Eco-Packages," for each package sold the corresponding Kapalua property will donate $1 to The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii for the ongoing protection and preservation of Mauis watershed and critical habitat for a variety of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth. The Kapalua Nature Society, an environmental education and conservation organization, will also plant a native koa tree in the West Maui Mountains for each package sold in 1997, as part of their Native Hawaiian Plant Reforestation Project.

The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii is an international non-profit organization dedicated to protecting Hawaiis native forests and wildlife. To date, The Conservancy has identified at least three critical and environmentally rich watersheds on Maui: Puu Kukui Preserve, an 8,661-acre rainforest located above Kapalua on West Maui; Kapunakea Preserve, a 1,200-acre watershed on West Maui; and Waikamoi Preserve, a 5,230-acre watershed on the slopes of Haleakala.
"In addition to serving as critical habitat for thousands of plants and animals found nowhere else on Earth, these preserves also house rain forests which provide billions of gallons of water that are the lifeblood of Mauis agricultural, residential and commercial economy," says Rex Johnson, director of The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii. "When intact, these ecosystems protect our beaches and coastal waters by buffering the effects of rain and preventing soil erosion, which would otherwise pollute our streams and destroy coral reefs and fishing areas. It is through support of community partners such as Kapalua that The Nature Conservancy is able to preserve these critical ecosystems."
The 1,650-acre Kapalua resort is located on the scenic northwest coast of Maui. It encompasses three world-class accommodations (The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, The Kapalua Villas and The Kapalua Bay Hotel), three championship golf courses designated as Audubon Cooperative Sanctuaries, two 10-court tennis facilities and a myriad of shops and restaurants.
The Kapalua resort is also a member of the Corporate Council For The Environment, a planning committee of The Nature Conservancy of Hawaii.
