A 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation
The mission to keep our beautiful Hawai‘i green began the formation of the Dana Anne Yee Foundation, a 501(c)(3) corporation. This extends with an outreach of a talented and giving foundation board of directors and members. Carrying out our mission, we received numerous grants and generous donations to survey for invasive insect pest species on the islands of O‘ahu, Maui, Kona and Hilo on Hawai‘i Island, Kaua‘i, Lana‘i, and Moloka‘i. We have successfully found approximately 210 New State of Hawai‘i records and New Island records. We proudly donated and dedicated 3 steel insect research learning cabinets to the University of Hawai‘i Urban Garden Center to teach our keiki and kupuna how to look for invasive insect pest species. We have given many presentations and taught about invasive species at the Botanical Gardens, community events, the University of Hawai‘i, and at school events. It is with great pride that we all volunteer our time and expertise in many fields of study to further our mission to preserve and protect our precious environment to keep our Hawai‘i green and growing.
