Items of Interest:

Hawaii Invasive Species Awareness Week
Hawaii Invasive Species Council.
Hawaii Invasive Species Awareness Week seeks to promote information sharing and public engagement in what the Hawaii State Legislature has declared "the single greatest threat to Hawaii's economy and natural environment and to the health and lifestyle of Hawaii’s people."

New Pest Advisories
Hawai'i Department of Agriculture. Plant Industry Division
A "New Pest Advisory" provides information on new pests and diseases that have become established in Hawaii. Individuals can help reduce the spread of these pests and diseases by being aware of their signs and symptoms and not moving them to other islands in the State.

Hawaii Early Detection Network - Report Invasive Pests Online
University of Hawaii. Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit. Hawaii Biodiversity Information Network.
The Hawaii Early Detection Network was created to increase public awareness of invasive species and engage communities in the monitoring of their own neighborhoods. Find out how you help protect the environment of Hawaii by participating in the Eyes and Ears Team and attending an educational workshop or downloading your own field guide. If you are reporting a snake call 911 or for an animal call 643-PEST immediately!

Hawai'i-Pacific Weed Risk Assessment
The Hawai'i-Pacific Weed Risk Assessment (HPWRA) is a free service that provides a background check on plants. Professional botanists use published information to answer 49 questions about a plant, to predict whether it is a low-risk or high-risk of becoming invasive in Hawai'i or similar Pacific islands.
