The National Park Service has extended the comment period for the “Environmental Assessment for the Management and Removal of Feral Animals in the Upper Elevations of Nu‘u, Maui.”

The public will have until close of business on July 29, 2016, to comment on the document.

Haleakalā National Park Service, in partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, is working to protect and restore 2,115 acres of habitat for native species in Nu‘u on the leeward slope of Haleakalā.

In support of this effort, management and removal of feral animals has been proposed and an Environmental Assessment prepared to analyze the effects of implementing that action.
