Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species


Formed in 1995, the Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species (CGAPS) is a voluntary partnership comprised primarily of management-level staff from every major agency and organization involved in Hawai‘i-based invasive species work; including federal, state, county and private entities. The group is a voluntary, public-private partnership formed to protect Hawai‘i from invasive species. Members participate in regular meetings in an effort to influence policy and funding decisions, improve communications, increase collaborations, and promote public awareness. The CGAPS & Hawai‘i Invasive Species Council (HISC) 2025 Joint Strategy is an in-depth road map containing ten statewide strategies to address critical invasive species threats, pathways and opportunities requiring broad collaboration.
