Alien Species in Hawaii
Created by

Website 47 participants 326 spottings

Hawaii is home to rare, endemic flora and fauna. However, the 8 islands are also not strangers to introduced and invasive species. Although many times these organisms are beautiful and benign, they can also be disruptive. Drawing attention to the sheer number of introduced wild species brings us one step closer to protecting Hawaii's endangered native plants and animals. Together, we can raise awareness.
