Nene and goslings

Ranger Dean discusses all things goose in this engaging segment about the state bird of Hawaii and a major conservation effort for both Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and Haleakala National Park. Nene also means to murmur, whisper, or gossip in Hawaiian. Once legally hunted in the state, these animals are just returning from the brink of complete annihilation. Nene are a clear example of what wildlife management and ample habitat can do for an endangered species. They are truly a conservation success storey and a living legacy.

      Video? There’s no video on this post…must be from whatever website you use to access it (i.e. iTunes, google, etc.)

        FYI- All posts to your blog have a video or image advertisements visible to the reader that appears either right after the article, or sometimes in the middle. The videos can be confusing to readers, they aren’t obviously marked as advertisements. I see this in other wordpress blogs such as the Maui Invasive Species Committee’s. See here for example: (though it might look slightly different if you are logged into wordpress),
