May, 2015 The Plant Extinction Prevention Program was featured in the Mahalo‘Āina radio series on Hawaii Public Radio. Listen online to the "series of reports designed to raise awareness of the many environmental, economic, social and cultural benefits provided by Hawaiʻi's forests and the need for human responsibility in protecting and perpetuating these ecosystems". The Mahalo ‘Āina program is an initiative of the Hawai‘i Forest Institute.
April, 2015 The University of Hawai‘i News profiled a vital partner of the Plant Extinction Prevention Program: The Lyon Arboretum Seed Conservation Laboratory. Much of the plant material collected by PEPP staff is sent to the Seed Conservation Laboratory for propagation and long-term storage. The staff at Lyon Arboretum are the best in their field and provide PEP species with the best chances for survival.
