A Convenient Donation

Hawaiian Humane Society recently received a $25,000 grant from ABC Stores. The funds will be used to reduce pet overpopulation through sterilizations and education. The grant will offset the nearly $320,000 the humane society is expected to spend this fiscal year on its sterilization program. The funding also will allow Hawaiian Humane Society to provide education on the importance of pet sterilization to schoolchildren, adopters and the public. Pictured (from left) are Susan Kosasa of ABC Stores and Pamela Burns, president and CEO of Hawaiian Humane Society

CTAHR Receives Research Funds

The College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources (CTAHR) at the University of Hawaii at Manoa received $500,000 from Monsanto Company to establish the Monsanto Research Fellows Fund. This new fund will assist graduate students pursuing a master’s or Ph.D. degree and post-doctoral researchers related to the study of plant science and protection.
