Location: Wentworth, Room 1
Title: Rare Plant Conservation in Hawaiʻi
Speaker: Josh VanDeMark
Abstract: Nearly 90 percent of the plants native to Hawaiʻi are found nowhere else in the world and a quarter of these are federally listed as endangered. Hawaiʻi's endangered flora make up nearly half of the threatened and endangered plants in the United States. Despite state-wide efforts in ecosystem protection, the populations of many rare plant species continue to decline. Resources for conservation can be limited, so efforts to protect these rare natural treasurers requires creativity, strong partnerships, and a focus on efficiency.
