   O‘ahu’s eastern shore is unlike any other on the island—rugged lava cliffs drop to the sea then the drive opens onto two of the island’s premiere body surfing sites.  This is the Ka‘Iwi coast—from Maunalua Bay to Makapu‘u, an area citizen’s groups have struggled 40 years to preserve.  A fundraising effort is underway now to secure the coastline in perpetuity.  HPR’sNoeTanigawa reports.

The fundraising deadline is August 30th.
