LIBRARY OF HAWAII COUGAR FILES

Mountain lions have never occurred in Hawaii.

As a small island state, far away from a potential dispersal population, Hawaii has never had a mountain lion population. Since there are no mountain lions to study, there is no current research in Hawaii.


Check out other state pages to see the research papers, agency reports, news articles, legal documents, and other documents addressing mountain lions in those states.

Environmental Scorecard

League of Conservation Voters

The League of Conservation Voters' scorecard considers the State Legislature's environmental records since 1971. It quantifies the environmental votes of each individual legislator — an important first step in considering accountability — and provides critical qualitative assessments as well. The scorecard will help you to know your legislator before you write a letter in support of cougars.
