Natural History of Hawaii

The first Web site (1) is a ThinkQuest entry designed by students from Kapolei Elementary School. Although it's geared toward kids, it offers a great overview of the natural history of Hawaii that should benefit anyone not already familiar with the islands. The next Web site (2), from the Hawaiian Ecosystems at Risk Project, outlines the alien species situation in Hawaii and presents a 10-point action plan for combating this problem. The National Wildlife Health Center of the US Geological Survey describes the projects of the Hawaii Field Station in this straightforward Web site (3). Visitors can take a virtual tour of Oahu's Lyon Arboretum and learn about some of Hawaii's unique flora along the way (4). The Hawaii Natural Area Reserves System Web site (5) contains general descriptions and photos of nature reserves on Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and the Big Island. Visitors to the next site (6) can browse a gallery of colorful Hawaiian-themed prints created by naturalist painter N. Robert Wagstaff. Terra Galleria Photography offers another collection of beautiful images, this time of Haleakala National Park. Images from this Web site (7) include photos of the highly endangered silversword plant. The final Web site is an article from ScienceDaily Magazine about some of the efforts to save this rare plant, which serves as a symbol of Hawaii's ecological plight (8).
