The Maui Invasive Species Committee exists to “fill-the-gap” in addressing invasive plants and animals throughout Maui County. We are a species-led management organization removing the high-threat invasive species that can be addressed with the resources available.
We have three field crews, working everyday throughout Maui County to address invasive plants and animals like miconia, coqui frog, pampas grass, fountain grass, ivy gourd, and banana bunchy top virus.
We are a project of the University of Hawaii-Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit. Our work is supported through County, State, and Federal grants as well as the backing of private grants and donations.
You can support our work by learning more and spreading the word. Check out this blog for more information about the species we work to control, our ongoing projects, and partner efforts to address invasive species throughout the state.
