Description

Kalaupapa NHP in 62 Seconds

Isolated by cliffs almost 2,000 feet (600 meters) tall, Kalaupapa National Historical Park on MolokaÊ»i Island, Hawaii tells the story of the forced isolation of people afflicted with Hansen’s disease, and also preserves a variety of natural resources. Coral reefs, a crater with an 800 foot-deep lake, intact coastal salt-spray plant communities, high elevation rain forest, and the steep forested Waikolu Valley contain a wide variety of aquatic, terrestrial, and marine habitats.
