Priority Species

SEPP prioritizes efforts on rare to critically endangered terrestrial snail species. Our priority species are described below by island. Click on any snail to learn more about it.

Kaua‘i

Kaua`i was once home to land snails of the Carelia genus which included the largest terrestrial snails endemic to Hawai`i measuring up to 3 inches in length. Unfortunately, members of this genus have not been seen since the mid-1900s and therefore no longer under the SEP program’s care.
