    As far as reciting a "Keep Hawaii Hawaii " pledge goes it would likely be like other Islands that have already been through this. Big Island has the "Pono Pledge" since 2018.

    Pono Pledge

    The Pono Pledge reads as follows:

    I pledge to be pono (righteous) on the island of Hawai‘i.
    I will mindfully seek wonder, but not wander where I do not belong.
    I will not defy death for breathtaking photos, or venture beyond safety.
    I will malama (care for) land and sea, and admire wildlife only from afar.
    Molten lava will mesmerize me, but I will not disrupt its flow.
    I will not take what is not mine, leaving lava rocks and sand as originally found.
    I will heed ocean conditions, never turning my back to the Pacific.
    When rain falls ma uka (inland), I will remain high above ground, out of rivers and streams.
    I will embrace the island’s aloha spirit, as it embraces me.

    Lawe i ka maalea i kuonoono
    “Take wisdom and make it deep.”

    Kuaia has the Aloha Pledge.

    I will take time to learn about the Hawaiian culture and people.

    I will remember I am a guest here and that others are not on vacation.

    I will stay in legal and licensed visitor accommodations.

    I will give fish and other wildlife space. I know feeding sea life can damage their health and disrupt behavior.

    I will stay off the reef. I understand even brushing coral can kill a whole coral colony.

    I will give space to fishermen so I do not scare the catch away.

    I will only use “reef safe” sunscreens and bug repellent products free of oxybenzone and parabens to avoid ocean and stream contamination.

    I will look for welcoming signage to let me know if an area is public. If none is visible I will not intrude.

    I will buy flowers and produce from the store or a farmers market and never pick from someone’s yard.

    I will clean and decontaminate all footwear and hiking gear with 70% alcohol or 10% bleach solution to prevent both Rapid Ohiʻa Death and other invasive species from spreading.

    I will protect special places by never geotagging when using social media.

    I will pick up my trash and any I may pass by.

    I will always give aloha, kindness and respect before taking this special experience with me.

    As far as I can tell no one is required to pledge anything. As far as I can tell they will get the money from the tourists and rightfully so, imo.

    Be friendly, act respectfully towards each other, be kind ... that is all that is required.

    When we go to different places it disgusts me to see the signs of lazy people. Such as leaving trash or cigarette butts, etc or not picking up their dogs poop. If I see trash on the beach I will pick it up. We are visiting another's home and should act accordingly. Especially in Hawaii where they are on an island. When I see cars abandoned I can only think it must be hard to get rid of things, that's a local concern I'm sure.

    This week has been mostly Hana Hwy expeditions in our rental car. There are many burnt out cars on the Hwy. They look like rental cars stolen, scraped and burnt. My bet is this is not a tourist thing.

    I like to shore fish and went to a few fishing holes. There was alot of garbage near the side of the road where the fishers park. My bet is this is not a tourist thing.

    I also spent time on the beaches where tourist hang out. These areas were very clean. My bet is this is a tourist thing.

    If you are seeing dog poop in Hawaii, in all likelihood that is not a visitor's dog but a resident's dog. Due to the strict quarantine laws of Hawaii very few visitors travel with their dog.

    You are correct about animals. I was talking about all the places we visit.
