Oahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge

Description:

O'ahu Forest National Wildlife Refuge is located on the upper slopes of the misty northern Ko'olau Mountains, and protects some of the last remaining intact native forests on O'ahu. Many of the native plants and animals that once thrived in these forests are either extinct or on the brink of extinction. Management intervention is needed to stabilize native ecosystems and prevent more species from becoming extinct. The O'ahu Forest Refuge supports at least 17 species of endangered plants, 4 species of endangered tree snails, and 1 species of endangered bird, along with other rare native flora and fauna. At least nine native natural communities have been identified in the area, including lowland mesic forest types, rainforest communities, high-elevation cloud forest, and freshwater streams.

Directions:

This new refuge is currently closed to the public. The refuge office is located on Oahu's north shore in Haleiwa at 66-590 Kamehameha Highway. Office hours are from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
