Hawaii Rangelands

Hawaii rangelands include grasslands, shrublands, woodlands, wetlands, and deserts and can be found on all eight major islands. In fact, half of the state's 4.1 million acres of land can be classified as rangelands. Much of Hawaii's rangelands are managed for livestock grazing while also providing important ecosystem services that sustain our island communities.
