About Pu’u Mali
“The Pu’u 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 re-forest agricultural grasslands with the purpose to recharging the watershed and providing a long-term habitat for Palila (Loxides bailleui)”.
