Saving Sandalwood

I recently returned from the dynamic Sandalwood Symposium that UpS helped co-organize along with the International Sandalwood Symposium. This historic four-day event was filled with 30 presentations with over 100 participants from 8 different countries that clearly represented those who are most deeply connected to the sandalwood trade, cultivation, research, and conservation. The symposium was held at the University of Hawaii’s East-West Center, where large rooms overlook a stunning Japanese garden. One of the most moving moments for me at the conference was the dancing done by the students of the Illiah School on the eve of the opening day. The elementary students remind us that plants form the cultural foundation and the presence of those plants in the local ecology is critical to sustaining cultural heritage for the future of Hawaii's youth. Read the 2012 ISS Book (PDF 1.9 mb).


United Plant Savers presented its concern in regards to Hawaiian Sandalwood and the role of the UpS 'At-Risk' tool to identify potential plants of concern. To read our presentation download the pdf. pdf icon
