The Puʻu Mali Restoration Area (PMRA) is an area of about 5,500 acres which used to be prime forest habitat before being converted into agricultural land. The area was fenced and domestic and feral ungulates were removed. Beginning in 2004, and continuing presently, the DLNR Division of Forestry and Wildlife (DOFAW) has conducted a forest restoration program on the proposed addition to reforest agricultural grassland with the purpose to recharging the watershed and providing a long-term habitat for Palila (Loxioides bailleui).

The Goal: Restoring Native Habitat

Revitalizing our native forests will help to provide a habitat for our native species.  For example, the highly endangered Palila (Fringillidae Lexoides bailleui) is one of the main beneficiaries of the Puu Mali project.
