The importance of having animals on our island is essential. For many who live here, it is a way of life. We hunt to survive. Without the animals, there is nothing. Yes, the eradication of animals have helped to bring the Palila population back, but the Mamane forests have not. Can't they see that it isn't the sheep and goats who MAINLY contributed to the problem? The birds came back but the forests haven't. Sheep and goats are scarce on this part of the land. So if they are scarce, why haven't the forests returned? Think about it.
