Rethinking and Rebuilding Nature in HawaiʻiBook
Three quarters of the United States' bird and plant extinctions have occurred in Hawaii, and one third of the country's threatened and endangered birds and plants reside within the state. Yet despite these alarming statistics, all is not lost: There are still 12,000 extant species unique to the archipelago and new species are discovered every year. Robert Cabin shows why current attempts to preserve Hawaii's native fauna and flora require embracing the emerging paradigm of ecological restoration the science and art of assisting the recovery of degraded species and ecosystems and creating more meaningful and sustainable relationships between people and nature.
