Life, in all of it's diversity, is precious. Across our planet, plants and animals have adapted and evolved into species that are each amazing, unique and beautiful. Yet with rapidly deteriorating changes to their environments, many species cannot adapt quickly enough, their populations drastically decline until, tragically, they vanish forever.
In Hawai‘i, the population is magnified. Life arrived to this isolated chain of islands, and against all odds, some species survived. Over millions of years, descendants of the pioneers formed new interrelationships with the land and other life forms. From coral reefs to the summits of towering volcanoes, from the harsh deserts to lush rainforests, from lava flows to caves - new life evolved and biological communities in the islands entered a state of balance and lōkahi (harmony).
