Farm Animal Rescue / Regenerative Agricultural Kokua


Kauai Animal Education Farm

As the only farm animal rescue on Kaua’i, Located in Kapa’a, KAEF cares for over 330 animals of 19 species. The land not utilized by the animals grows native, medical & edible plants. The property is home to endangered native species living in their natural habitats that need maintenance & protection to promote a healthy environment. KAEF then serves as a resource to build a healthier community through Hawaiian cultural practices. KAEF is a family-operated, volunteer-based nonprofit. We need all the help we can get to effectively fulfill the mission. Kids of all ages are welcome to kokua. (under 14 Must have supervision) We have many positions, even virtually, of all skill levels, and talents that can be a key asset! You don’t even need to be on Kaua’i to make a difference! A’ohe hana nui ke alu ‘ia. No task is too big when shared by all. Help us, help others! Mahalo

About the organizer

We, as residents on a remote island, experience firsthand the devastation from insufficient food security, inadequate mental health options, and a disconnection to the natural world. We also know the negative impacts that introduced species have on farmers, businesses, and residents. Our goal is to educate our community on our own responsibility as stewards of the land. First, KAEF takes in farm animals so that they are not released into our ecosystem. Second, KAEF offers programs for the community to engage and learn from friendly animals through services such as visits, tours, enrichment programs, and adoptions. In addition, the land not utilized by the animals grows medicinal, edible, and over 20 species of native trees & plants that serve as food security, teaching tools, and habitats for native species. KAEF is a safe place for animals as well as people. This is a place for others to be able to gain tangible life skills and build their characteristics to become healthy, caring, contributing stewards.

A`ohe hana nui ka alu`ia. No task is too big when done together. Come alongside us to help us help others.
