Hawaii’s Statewide Aquatic Wildlife Conservation Strategy (SAWCS)
is a historic initiative that comprehensively reviews the status of the
full range of the State’s aquatic species, over 1,000 of which are found
nowhere else on earth. Hawaii’s SAWCS presents strategies for long-term
conservation of these species and their habitats. The development of the
SAWCS built upon Hawaii’s strong history of conservation and involved
working with resource managers, biologists, and concerned individuals
statewide. As a result, the SAWCS has a broad level of support,
increasing the likelihood that the conservation strategies identified
will be implemented by multiple partners as well as the Hawai‘i
Department of Land and Natural Resources.
