The Kauai Invasive Species Committee (KISC) is a voluntary partnership of government, private and non-profit organizations, and concerned individuals working to prevent, control, or eliminate the most threatening invasive plant and animal species in order to preserve Kauai’s native biodiversity and minimize adverse ecological, economic and social impacts.

We mangage, monitor, and control all of our target species using Integrated Pest Management (IPM), and implement the best strategies for controlling different species on an individual level.

KISC is focused on island-wide invasive species issues concerning, but not limited to, the threat to Kauaʻi’s: watershed areas, native forests and diverse native species, pasture lands, agricultural crops, recreational resources and the visitor industry.
