Explore Maui Nature is locally owned and operated by Beth Lariviere, a wildlife biologist who grew up in New England, lived/worked all around the mainland and is happy to now call Maui her home. She has a great love for the flora and fauna of the island and donates proceeds from each tour back to Maui conservation efforts. The natural beauty of Maui is under constant threat by development and invasive species, so the island you see today could be very different in only a few years without these conservation efforts. When you Explore Maui Nature, you will be guided by your own wildlife biologist who will introduce you to the island’s splendor with great expertise. If you include a helicopter charter, your pilot will be one of the most experienced on the island. Allow us to introduce you to some of Maui’s secrets that not many people ever experience.
