Anchialine Pools, Water Quality, and Climate


Description

In old Hawaii, this land was considered a crucial place of refuge for people. Although the landscape has been altered by humans for hundreds of years, it remains a refuge for culturally important plant species, birds, bats, and marine life.

Nature has reclaimed many of the amazing sites from times past, but rich natural and cultural resources still abound.

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.
