Invasive species have devastating effects on Hawaiʻi’s agriculture, ecosystem health, and human health. February is Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Awareness Month (HISAM), when we raise awareness about these threats while also celebrating the good work done to protect Hawaiʻi from invasive species. 

As part of these celebrations, the Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Council (HISC) Support Program coordinates a nomination and award process to recognize the contributions of individuals, organizations, and businesses in the fight against invasive species. The 2022 HISAM Award recipients are presented below by members of the Hawaiʻi State Legislature. Mahalo to our award winners for their contributions to making our islands safer and more biosecure!
