This endemic palm tree, Pritchardia kaalae, is limited to a single valley on the island of Oahu. Through their efforts, the Oahu Natural Resource Team has helped ensure this palm tree's long-term survival by removing the threat of rat predation. Their management has increased the number of palms from 165 to over 1,100.
