MOUNTAIN LIONS IN THE STATE OF HAWAII

Mountain lions do not naturally occur in Hawaii.

As a small island far away from any potential mountain lion source population, Hawaii has never had its own mountain lion population. This ia a natural situation and does not demand our attention. There are plenty of other environmental problems to solve on the island, and other states that need our help to foster sustainable mountain lion populations.

If we support mountain lion-friendly legislation, open space conservation, and preserve corridors connecting potential habitat in other states, we could reverse this situation and bring mountain lions back home to their former range.
