What are Invasive Species?
Invasive species threaten our environment, economy, agriculture, human health, and/or quality of life. Invasive species are not native to Hawaii, they were introduced either intentionally or accidentally by humans. Invasive species generally reproduce quickly and are able to spread from their initial intended area.
