"The Haleakala silversword (Argyroxiphium sandwicense ssp. macrocephalum) was near extinction in the 1920's because of human vandalism and browsing by goats and cattle. The plant has increased under protection and deserves attention as the most dramatic conservation success story of the Hawaiian Islands."
