Description

This mountain park is seemingly split between two contrasting worlds. At the summit of Haleakalā, a stark volcanic crater hosts iconic species like ʻuaʻu (Hawaiian petrels) and ʻāhinahina (silverswords). Dense native rainforest along the southern flanks of the mountain contains pristine waterfalls, rare forest birds, and specialized stream animals.

Haleakalā National Park protects some of the greatest natural treasures in the Hawaiian Islands.

Park Species List

Select a Species Category (optional):

What's the difference?

A Checklist contains only those species that are designated as "present" or "probably present" in the park.

The Full List with Details includes all the Checklist species plus species that are unconfirmed, historically detected, or incorrectly reported in the park. The Full List also contains species that are "in review" because their status in the park hasn't been fully determined. Additional details about the status of each species is included in the Full List.

The Checklist will almost always contain fewer species than the Full List.
