Travellers to Hawaii increasingly leave the beach for part of their stay to explore the islands' 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 sealife. 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. Features: * Provides identifying, location, and conservation information on the frequently spotted animals * Gives up-to-date information on the ecology, behaviour, and conservation of the families of animals to which the pictured species belong * Contains information on Hawaiian habitats and on the most common plants you will see, and on the underwater animals most dive
