Isolated by cliffs almost 2,000 feet (600 meters) tall, Kalaupapa National Historical Park, on the Hawaian island of Moloka‘i, tells the story of the forced isolation of people afflicted with Hansen's disease. The park also preserves an array of natural resources. Coral reefs, a crater with an 800-foot-deep lake, intact coastal salt-spray plant communities, high-elevation rain forest, and the steep forested Waikolu Valley contain a wide variety of aquatic, terrestrial, and marine habitats.
