Born and raised on Maui, I have a deep passion for the island where I grew up. Residing in Wailuku, I frequent west Maui’s natural streams, particularly Iao where I love to swim. This is where I first discovered my spark for conservation. In awe with each Iao Valley visit, I am continually inspired to work in preserving, restoring and perpetuating Hawaii’s natural environment. I graduated from the University of Hawaii at Manoa and am currently pursuing a career in conservation. AlohaEmail: Garrett Ancheta.
