Hawaiʻi is home to an amazing diversity of fish and wildlife, many of which can be found nowhere else. Unfortunately, Hawaiʻi has also been declared the “endangered species capital of the world.” The Hawaiʻi Biological Survey, with the assistance of various state, federal, and local agencies compiles information on at-risk species with different designations such as endangered, critically endangered or vulnerable. Species of concern are listed as species about which there are concerns regarding status and threats. Species of concern are commonly declining or appear to be in need of concentrated conservation actions. VAC hopes this exhibition will bring awareness to these vulnerable species and the conservation efforts within our island communities to preserve them.
