Funds from sales of the Hawaii Wildlife Conservation Stamps go into the state Wildlife Revolving Fund to support game animal populations and habitat, and to manage hunting in the state.

Activities and projects supported by this fund have included surveys of game bird and mammal populations; land leasing for hunting; predator control; and maintenance of wildlife watering units. In addition, planting of native shrubs and trees, controlled burns, removal of invasive plants, and other wildlife habitat improvement and restoration projects are supported by these funds.
