Huki up!

In ʻōlelo Hawaiʻi, huki is translated as, “to pull or tug; to draw, stretch, or reach; to support.” Inspired by the concept of huki, we invite you to upgrade your FOWA membership with our new Huki Up campaign. Please consider rounding up your membership fee to include a donation to the Friends of the Waikīkī Aquarium. When you opt to “huki up” at a value of $25 or more, you’ll receive a limited-edition FOWA logo item. Membership dues benefit the Aquarium through programming, exhibit updates and so much more.
