Habitat and Wildlife Conservation plans in Hawaii.

According to numerous news stories I viewed recently, the Obama administration has declared 48 species (2 honeycreeper birds, a fly and 45 ferns, trees and shrubs) found only on the island of Kauai. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar also has said the government would be declaring over 40 square miles on that island as a critical habitat.

This move is expected to help the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service adopt a new "holistic approach" to protect endangered species by restoring the broad ecosystems they inhabit and restore their health.

Hawaii has more endanged species than any other state.

In order to read a full article by one of the news agencies, please see the following news stories where I found the news information below:

Personally I love to see habitats that are protected, if only to keep the native plants and animals safe from harm. I would like to ask our readers your thoughts on this subject. Please let us know!
