The Regional Director of the Pacific West Region of the National Park Service (NPS), has issued a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) for a Haleakalā National Park Environmental Assessment proposing management of feral animals in the upper elevations of Nu’u, Maui. Habitat restoration for endangered ‘ua‘u (Hawaiian petrel) will be accomplished through the Proposed Alternative (Alternative B). Actions will include management and control of feral goats, pigs, dogs, and axis deer within 1,885 fenced acres of the Haleakalā National Park (HNP) lands.
In 2008, the NPS acquired the Nu‘u parcel, one of Maui’s largest undeveloped tracts of land on the leeward slope of Haleakalā. The park, in partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Federation, is working to protect and restore 2,115 acres of habitat for native species in Nu‘u.
The FONSI, EA, Errata and associated documents are available for viewing online via the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/hale/.
