Hawaii Hawaiian Goose (Nene) Hawaiian Hibiscus Candlenut Tree


Hawaii, known as the Aloha State, celebrates the Nēnē or Hawaiian Goose as its state bird. This unique bird symbolizes resilience and adaptation, having recovered from near-extinction to thrive in Hawaii's diverse ecosystems. Complementing this avian emblem is the Hawaiian Hibiscus, the state flower, renowned for its vibrant colors and delicate beauty, reflecting Hawaii's tropical allure. Rising proudly in Hawaii's volcanic landscapes are the Kukui and ʻŌhiʻa Lehua trees, both designated as state trees, symbolizing strength, sustainability, and a deep connection to the islands' natural heritage.
