Executive summary excerpt:

The O'ahu Army Natural Resources Program (OANRP) has just completed implementing its fourth year of the Mākua Implementation Plan Addendum (2005) and the first year of the O'ahu Implementation Plan (OIP) (Draft OIP 2005, Final OIP 2008). The Mākua Implementation Plan (MIP) was finalized in May 2003. In January 2005, the Army completed an Addendum which emphasized management of three population units (PUs) per plant taxon in the most intact habitat and 300 individuals of Achatinella mustelina in each genetically identified Evolutionarily Significant Unit (ESU). The 2007 Makua Biological Opinion (BO) issued by the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) required that the Army provide threat control for all O'ahu Elepaio pairs in the Mākua action area (AA) and that some species be stabilized on an expedited timeline in order to utilize certain munnitions. Expedited stabilization has not begun at this time due to a lack of additional funding for this effort. An amended BO was issued in 2008 that covers additional minimizations measures necessary as a result of the 2007 Waialua fire that destroyed individuals and habitat for Hibiscus brackenridgei subsp. mokueleianus. This report serves as the annual status report to the Mākua Implementation Team (MIT), and participating landowners on the MIP Year-4 actions that occurred between 1 September 2007 and 31 August 2008.
