This video is one of 6 Adaptation Videos, a project under Pacific Islands Climate Change Cooperative’s Hawaiian Islands Terrestrial Adaptation Initiative (HITAI). Sierra McDaniel introduces viewers to Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park Rare Plant Recovery tactics and the threats that these highly endangered species face. However, she speaks of their “Holding the Line” strategies and how important science-based decisions and climate change models have influenced their management efforts to preserve and protect their valuable natural and cultural resources within the park. Through strong partnerships and taking risks, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park is not waiting to see what the future holds, rather they are leading by example and building resiliency now!
