Kawainui Marsh, Oahu
DOFAW is currently working with partners and wetland experts across the state to develop a wetland brochure and poster.
Cattle crane [a non-native bird] and taro (kalo)Hawai'i has many unique and special wetland areas. Some are in remote areas, but several, like Kawainui marsh and Hamakua marsh, are accessible and available for enjoyment by the public.
When visiting wetland areas, be sure to respect any posted signs, and avoid disturbing birds and other wetland creatures.
Honouliuli Marsh, Oahu
The hope for the brochure and poster is to share educational and scientific information about wetlands in Hawai'i with the public. Stay tuned for more info about this wonderful wetland resource!
