This ecological tour of Maui Hawaii consists of three parts: virtual tours, eco tours, and environmental organizations.
The virtual tours page consists of links to photographic tours of Maui. We've included the best Maui photographs we could find, taken by both professional and amateur photographers from all over the world! Many of these pictures of Maui are breathtaking, but remember: nothing compares to actually seeing it yourself!
That's why we created the eco tours page, which includes links to all the ecotourism organizations we could find on line. Maui's ecosystem has been under attack since the first Polynesians set foot on Maui. While threatened by everything from the Army Corps of Engineers to people who carelessly flick their cigarette butts and gum wrappers, the life on and around Maui does its best to survive the onslaught of man. Its continued beauty is a testament to its resilience. The least we can do is use the services of companies who try to lessen the impact we make while visiting Maui.
One way to lessen your impact on Maui is to stay in this solar powered Maui vacation rental house. Make up for some of that jet-powered carbon footprint you left getting there.
Finally, find out how you can help the various environmental organizations that do their best to keep Maui naturally beautiful. These organizations survive because of volunteers and donations. Without concerned people willing to dedicate their time and money, the fight to preserve the natural beauty of Maui would have been lost long ago.
