The National Park Service (NPS) is extending 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.

A copy of the Environmental Assessment may be viewed at the park's website at www.nps.gov/hale or at the National Park Service Review Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/projectHome.cfm?projectId=55701. Copies will also be available at the Makawao and Hana public libraries.

Comments may also be submitted by email (to e-mail us with the subject line "Nu'u EA"), or by regular mail (Attention: Nu'u Environmental Assessment, Haleakalā NP, P.O. Box 369, Makawao, HI, 96768).

Comments will not be accepted by FAX or in any manner other than the methods specified above. Bulk comments in any format (hard copy or electronic) submitted on behalf of others will not be accepted. Before including a personal address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in written comments, anyone providing written comment should be aware their entire comment - including their personal identifying information - may be made publicly available at anytime. While anyone wishing to comment may ask the National Park Service in their comment to withhold their personal identifying information from public review, the National Park Service cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.
