Hawai‘i is home to roughly 1,000 native moth species, including a handful of species in the sphinx moth family (Sphingidae). The name ‘ōka‘i refers to a large moth that flies at night, which perfectly describes sphinx moths. Conservation for native moths includes habitat protection/restoration and invasive species management. Additionally, research and surveys are necessary to better understand diversity and population trends.
