haleakalanps This week, the haleakalā museum highlights its ornithology (study of birds) collection with a stuffed nēnē from 1968. the endangered nēnē (pronounced nay-nay) or hawaiian goose is the official bird of hawai'i and is exclusively found in the wild on the islands of hawai'i, maui, moloka’i and kaua’i. in the 1950’s there were only about 30 nēnē in the wild and today the nēnē is one of the rarest geese in the world. the major cause of death in the wild for the nēnē is predation by mongooses, cats, and dogs or getting hit by cars. today, with hard work and dedication there are an estimate of 500 nēnē on maui with 250 living in haleakalā national park. to help protect the nēnē please do not feed or touch them and drive slowly within the park – there may be a nēnē on the road!

haleakalanps Did you know that haleakalā national park has a museum full of specimens from the park? the museum collection consists of entomology (bugs), herbarium (plants), ornithology (birds), archaeology, and ethnography collections. we also have a large archive full of historic photographs of the park. pictured here is a photo of park ranger clifford mccall jr. next to haleakala’s entrance sign when it was part of the hawai‘i national park between 1916-1961. ranger mccall was the park’s former chief of maintenance and served at the park over a period of 40 years.

haleakalanps A silver lining for this stretch of wet weather: the kona (from the south) winds calm the sea at kūloa point in kīpahulu district, making these lulling waves absolutely gorgeous. photo: nps/ka'uiki lind. #haleakala #winter #hawaii #waves #ocean #7sacredpools

haleakalanps #throwbackthursday to 1963, when the photo on this card was taken. last week, @hawaiipacificparks' keith and ranger meagan got to talk story with a legendary visitor--jim whittaker! in 1963, mr. whittaker became the first american to ever summit mount everest. his wife said that despite hiking the himalayas, the coldest night they had ever spent camping was in haleakalā crater (a lesson in the importance of preparedness!). what hikes are you proud of conquering this year? photo: nps/meagan kubojiri #haleakala #findyourpark #climb #hike
