Oahu Invasive Species Committee (OISC)


About OISC

The Oahu Invasive Species Committee (OISC) is a voluntary partnership of state, federal, and private agencies united to protect Oahu from the most harmful invasive plants and animals that threaten our environment, economy, and human health.

OISC works to prevent the establishment of new alien pests, controls incipient pests on public and private land, and educates the community about the threats of invasive species and what they can do to help.

OISC strategies

Prevention: Learn more about Oahu Early Detection (OED) Project, a partnership between OISC and the Bishop Museum.

Control: Some OISC targets, like fountain grass, are established in certain parts of the island and controlled in order to prevent further spread to more sensitive areas.

Eradication: Small naturalized populations of alien pests may be eradicated. Eradication is the ultimate goal for the majority of OISC targets.

OISC meetings

OISC holds public meetings to update its partners. Please call (808) 266-7994 for more information. Meeting notes and agenda are posted.
