Christmas Gift Idea
Give the Gift of a Nene
By adopting a Nene, the state bird of Hawaii, you'll be helping us to
endangered species and important habitats in the Park from destruction by feral
goats and pigs, from invasion by alien plants, and from predation by mongooses,
feral cats, and rats.
- The Nene is an endemic bird on the Federal and state of Hawaii Lists of Endangered
- There are less than 1800 Nene in the wild throughout Hawaii.
- Nene were once extinct from Maui
- Nene were re-introduced in to Maui in the 1960s.
- The total Nene population in the Park is estimated to be about 300, and West Maui supports perhaps 200 more.
