The Oahu Implementation Plan (OIP) was prepared to guide the U.S. Army Garrison Hawaii (Army) in the ongoing conservation and stabilization efforts for 23 endangered plant species, several endangered snail species, and one endangered bird species potentially affected by military training at all of the Army training installations on Oahu (except Makua). In 2003, the Army initiated formal Section 7 consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) by providing a Biological Assessment (BA) for military training at Schofield Barracks Military Reservation (SBMR), Kahuku Training Area (KTA), Kawailoa Training Area (KLOA), Schofield Barracks East Range (SBER), South Range Acquisition Area (SRAA), and Dillingham
Military Reservation (DMR). In October 2003, the USFWS issued a non jeopardy Biological Opinion (BO) with the condition that the Army prepare an Implementation Plan outlining the measures necessary to stabilize the listed species on these installations with less than three stable populations and/or more than 50 percent of known individuals occurring within the action area (AA). The consultation utilized an AA that encompasses all land potentially affected by military training (i.e. fire, invasive species introductions, etc.) and thus includes a small area outside the installation boundaries. Pursuant to the requirements of the 2003 BO, the Army prepared a draft OIP and submitted it to the USFWS in June 2005. Due to a heavy workload, the USFWS did not comment on the plan until 2007. During 2007 and 2008, the Army and USFWS worked together to finalize the document and address the USFWS concerns.
