Description

Legendary fine art photographers and award-winning environmentalists David Littschwager and Susan Middletonthe team that brought you the critically acclaimed "Remains of a Rainbow"join forces once again, to showcase a breathtaking selection of the native flora and fauna of the remote Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, both terrestrial and marine.With more than 300 stunning images, this book illustrates the spectacular diversity of these oceans and Island creatures, as well as profiles many of the people dedicated to the preservation of this habitat. Home to nearly seventy percent of our nation's coral reefs. Known as the "rainforests of the sea" the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands is a remarkable ecosystem that supports a vast array of interdependent native plants and animals that have evolved in this habitat over millions of years, many existing nowhere on the planet. The inaccessibility of these islands and the need to protect them means that few people will ever be able to visit them in person, though now, for the first time, the area's inhabitants are available for all the world to see through this calendar.
