Input sought on mosquito suppression efforts to address impacts of avian malaria on Maui
Haleakalā National Park is seeking public input on an environmental assessment for the “Suppression of Non-native Mosquito Populations to Address the Impacts of Avian Malaria on Threatened and Endangered Forest Birds on Maui.”
The assessment will determine the impacts of using a new technique to manage mosquitoes in East Maui. This Environmental Assessment is being prepared in cooperation with the Hawaiʻi Department of Land and Natural Resources.
The National Park Service invites the public to the following virtual public meetings to learn more about the project and submit questions to NPS and DLNR representatives. The content for each virtual meeting will be the same, therefore, participants would only need to attend one.
