Rehabilitate Perimeter Fences to Protect Unique Park Ecosystems

Kalaupapa National Historical Park » Rehabilitate Perimeter Fences to Protect Unique Park Ecosystems » Document List

Kalaupapa National Historical Park is seeking additional input on a proposed project to rehabilitate (replace and upgrade) up to 9 miles of fence at Kalaupapa National Historical Park, located on the island of Molokai in Hawai'i. Exclusionary fencing is the primary tool to protect native ecosystems and watersheds as well as cultural resources from damage by large numbers of invasive, non-native animals, such as goats, pigs, deer, and cats. Over 50 federally listed threatened and endangered species and their critical habitat are protected from invasive animals within the fenced areas in the park. The fence segments to be replaced are old and close to failure or have already failed and thus rehabilitation is needed.
