Environmental interpretation plays a significant role in nature-based tourism and is beneficial to tour operators, visitors, conservation groups, and the nature-based tourism economy. Maui Mauka Conservation Awareness Training (MMCAT) goal is to educate tour operators and guides about native ecosystems and species found in Hawaii and the projects that are helping conserve it.
Presentations about conservation and our natural environment are given by representatives from the Maui Invasive Species Committee, East Maui Watershed Partnership, and Maui Forest Bird Recovery Project. There are special guests from a different conservation organization at each training. Training is three hours long and locations vary.
