Hawaiian tree snails were once so common that they covered the leaves of the forest. Today, they are incredibly rare to find-- many species have gone extinct and the remaining few species are endangered. Conservationists are working against the clock to prevent the loss of kāhuli snails. This includes protecting kāhuli from invasive predators like rats, Jacksonʻs chameleons, and rosy wolf snails. The Snail Extinction Prevention Programʻs captive breeding program helps boost kāhuli populations for reintroduction into the wild. Fun fact: Unlike other snails, kāhuli snails give live birth!
