aren't the egrets a result of the Waikoloa Marriot/Hilton bird enclosures not working???

The entire history of the Hawaiian Islands is one of species migration, for better or worse it is a ongoing story. Plants and animals continue to find there way to these islands. Who is going to decide which ones to eradicate/kill. Instead of birds lets kill off all the cattle and pigs, I saw a zebra are we going to kill it as well? We should focus on creating good healthy forest and protect native species through habitat enhancement. Stop diverting water from natural flowing streams,

    Why don’t they go after the Albezia tree and leave the animals alone?

    We do not support barn owl & egret killing!!! If you want to kill something, kill all these huge rats running around!!
