I am looking for all the types of environmental constraints in shapefile format for Hawaii. Is there any environmental agency website or other source where I could find it? Any kind of help would be much appreciated.

There are a number of data layers available at the Hawaii State GIS Program website. Follow the GIS Data link. If environmental constraint means protected areas, reserves, there are several layers that may be of interest to you.
