Hawaii: Endangered Animals

There are only about 12,000 humpback whales left.

After exhausting popular oil-producing baleen species such as bowhead, gray, humpback and right whales, whalers turned to leaner, less valuable alternatives such as sei and minke whales.Which let to more endangerment.

Restoration and protection of mid-elevation forest is essential for the recovery of endangered species such as `Akiapōlā`au, Maui `Ākepas, and Hawai`i Creeper.

Human deforestation are a huge part of animal populations to go down.Preserving native forests and protecting endemic species should be a priority.

Invasive species are a major threat in Hawaii’s animals. Invasive species do not really have predators. Exotic plants and diseases can wreak havoc on native habitats.

There are about 25% of U.S. endangered species in Hawaii.There are about 25,000 thousand total species endangered in Hawaii.Hawaii is sometimes called the “endangered species capital of the world.”

Hawaiian Monk Seal is one of the most endangered animals in the world.Population is decreasing approximately 4% per year.The population is currently only about 1,100.

Leather back sea turtles are federally listed as endangered.Often eggs and adults are illegally poached.Unfortunatly they often die from eating ocean litter.

The Hawaii Wildlife Center is a state-and region-wide wildlife response organization. The HWC is the first organization of its kind exclusively for native Hawaiian wildlife and provides state-of-the-art care and rehabilitation for native animals as well as comprehensive wildlife rescue training and public education and outreach programs.

The Marine Mammal Center has worked with species that are considered to be endangered or threatened.Our education programs teach nearly 30,000 people each year about marine mammals and the need for environmental stewardship of earth's marine environments, with the goal of inspiring ocean conservation.
