Wings, Water, Wind Created Hawaii's Ecosystem

June 30, 2015 - Hawaii has a unique ecosystem. Because the islands were created by volcanoes, all plant life had to arrive either by water, wind, or birds. Volcanoes National Park, on the Big Island of Hawaii, was home to National Geographic's BioBlitz 2015. Volunteers joined with scientists to learn about the park's diverse organisms and to discover new species of plants, animals, and insects living there.
