DLNR to discuss proposed rule amendments

HONOLULU – The state Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) will hold statewide public hearings to receive testimony on proposed amendments to Hawaii Administrative Rules, Title 13, Subtitle 5, Part 2, Chapter 124, regarding “Indigenous Wildlife, Endangered and Threatened Wildlife, and Introduced Wild Birds.”

The primary purpose of the proposed amendments is to prohibit and deter the transport and release of introduced wildlife. Introduced species can impact Hawaii’s ecosystems and economy by introducing harmful predation and competition to indigenous species, damaging watersheds, spreading pathogens and diseases, and harming agriculture, DLNR reported.

The Maui hearing will be held Monday, April 1, at 6 p.m. in the Lihikai Elementary School Cafeteria.

The public can review the proposed amendments at dlnr.hawaii.gov/ about-dlnr/rules/. For information, call Lauren Goodmiller at (808) 587-0028.
