By the end of 2005, The East Moloka‘i Watershed Partnership was implementing its management plan, which calls for major fencing andungulate control projects east of Kamakou Preserve. Broad communitysupport for the plan was assured by extensive community involvement inthe management plan, though small, but vocal opposition in thelocal hunting community remains.
The establishment of a Moloka‘i division of the Maui InvasiveSpecies Committee (MoMISC), and intimate integration of MoMISC staffwithin the TNC Moloka‘i baseyard has maximized alignment of alienspecies prevention goals and actions.The Moloka‘i Program continues to manage Kamakou Preserve (2,774 acres), Pelekunu Preserve (5,759 acres), and Mo‘omomi Preserve (921 acres) in addition to its East Moloka‘i Watershed Partnership participation. All are part of the East Moloka‘i Conservation Area, for which a Conservation Action Plan (CAP) has been drafted.
