Help Save Hawaii's Coconut Trees

Help Save Hawaii's Coconut Trees

Invasive species have negative cultural, economic, and environmental impacts on Hawaii’s unique natural resources. Coconut rhinoceros beetles (Oryctes rhinoceros) are an invasive species that have recently been discovered on O’ahu and have the potential to rapidly reach epidemic proportions. Some Pacific islands have lost 50% of their coconut trees because of feeding damage by these beetles. Help us save Hawaii's coconut trees from the Rhinoceros Beetle by uploading photos of the tops of coconut trees. Sign in to join mission
