Generally Led Conservation Interagency Cooperation Watershed Approach ( SWAPA+H ) Goals: Ecosystem and Watershed Health Resource Technologies: GPS, GIS, Remote Sensing, Field Sampling Resource Issues: Native species, Invasive Species, Water quality LOCALLY LED CONSERVATION ON MAUI Robyn L. Myers, State Landscape Ecologist, NRCS California State Office More data is accessible at interagency endeavors on Maui give great illustrations of provincially drove preservation that applies the most recent asset innovation to give both watershed wide protection and particular area medicines. WATERSHED APPROACH TO CONSERVATION NRCS utilizes "SWAPA+H" (Soil, Water, Air, Plants, Animals + Humans) as a structure for arranging the administration of normal assets utilizing an environment or watershed methodology.
