Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species


The Coordinating Group on Alien Pest Species (CGAPS) is a partnership of agencies and non-governmental organizations formed in 1995 to close the gaps in Hawai‘i’s invasive species programs. The CGAPS mission is to coordinate and catalyze action among government and non-government partners to prevent and manage invasive species in Hawaiʻi, as well as communicate key issues to the public. The CGAPS staff facilitates collaborative projects under the HISC & CGAPS 2025 Strategy, which reflects the most urgent priorities of both CGAPS and the Hawaiʻi Invasive Species Council, from the nearly 150 priorities listed in the 2017-2027 Hawaii Interagency Biosecurity Plan. CGAPS is a project of the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa-Pacific Cooperative Studies Unit.
