    Description

    The Hawaiian Islands are one of the United States' most treasured natural resources. Their natural beauty attracts legions of visitors every year, and they represent a unique set of ecosystems. Despite their limited geographic size, Hawai‘i hosts a remarkable range of habitats. On some islands, dry tropical forest, wet rain forest, and alpine ecosystems are found within 20 miles of each other. The Hawaiian Islands are the most geographically isolated archipelago on Earth. Of the thousands of species native to the islands, 90 percent are found nowhere else. These native treasures are threatened by a host of invaders.
