Travellers to Hawaii increasingly leave the beach for part of their stay to explore the island's incredible natural attractions: stunning mountain scenery, wonderful hiking trails, glimpses of birds, many of them highly endangered, that occur nowhere else in the world. In this book is all the information you need to find, identify, and learn about Hawaii's unique land animals, plants and sea life. The author visited national parks and nature reserves, discussed wildlife with local and international experts, and then selected for color illustrations and photos about 400 of Hawaii's most common insects, fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals--the species you are most likely to see. In one easy-to-carry, entertainingly written, beautifully illustrated book, you will have as a constant companion on your journey.
