Executive summary excerpt: The Army natural resource program on Oahu (OANRP) has nearly 60 personnel on staff, comprised of management and administrative support staff, an ecosystem restoration crew, an ungulate management crew, three resource management crews, and a plant nursery/seed bank crew. Most of these staff are employed via a cooperative agreement funded by the U.S. Army Garrison, Hawaii through the Office of the Vice President for Innovation and Research (OVPRI), Pacific International Center for High Technology Research (PICHTR) and administered by the Research Corporation of the University of Hawaii-Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit (PCSU). Staff levels in Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 were slightly up from FY 2017. For FY 2018, OANRP received a total of $5,872,155 to implement Makua Implementation Plan (MIP) projects and Tier 1 projects from the Oahu Implementation Plan (OIP). This included funding for ongoing research initiatives, contracted snail predator fence construction projects, plant propagation services, ongoing rat control services and document preparation. As in FY 2017, for FY 2018, OANRP did not receive funding for OIP Tier 2 and Tier 3 projects as there was no training conducted that could impact the species at the Tier 2 and 3 levels, as specified in the 2003 Oahu Biological Opinion.
    This status report (report) serves as the annual report for participating landowners, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), and the Implementation Team (IT) overseeing the MIP and OIP. The period covered in this report is July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. This report covers Year 14 of the MIP and Year 11 of the OIP.
