Video: Hawaii County Council Bans Bio Contol For Strawberry Guava

Clips from theĀ  live Broadcast of Hawaii County Council Meeting on August 19th 2009, on Big Island Live.

Residents of the Big Island worked very hard to make sure the council knew how they felt about the proposed introduction of a foreign species to our Native Forests, in attempts to irradicate Strawberry Guava.

This resolution to ban the the proposed Bio Control passed with a vote of 6-3. 6000 people signed petitions, which definitely had an effect on their elected officials.
