Plant Communities, Invasive Plants, Benthic Marine Communities, Marine Fish, Streams, Water Quality, and Climate


Description

Isolated by cliffs almost 2,000 feet (600 meters) tall, Kalaupapa National Historical Park on Molokaʻi 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.

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.
