Hawaii Volcanoes National Park in 60 Seconds

Monitored at this park:

Plant Communities, Invasive Plants, Landbirds, Anchialine Pools, and Climate


Description

The steaming Kīlauea Caldera lies at the heart of Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park, and although this sacred feature draws many visitors, the living wonders that the park protects are equally significant. The largest national park in the U.S. Pacific islands contains rainforests teeming with native birds and rare plants, montane and dry woodlands rife with culturally important species, and a dynamic coastline.


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.
