`Ua`u (Hawaiian petrel) are seabirds.

They gather food from the ocean and nest in burrows and in cavities in lava flows.

Today, the park's resource managers monitor their nesting habitat at around 8,000 feet elevation on Mauna Loa.

The image is of `ua`u soaring, a chick peering out of a nesting cavity, a leafy branch representing pukiawe that grows at higher elevations, an erupting vent, waves at the shore, a fish and a crab.
