Water norishes the native plants in the valley of Kipahulu

Water nourishes the native plants in the valley of Kipahulu

Ranger Eric talks about the Kipahulu Valley in Haleakala National Park and why it is now and has been for many generations a place of stewardship and care of the land. The valley is unique- there is no analog for it anywhere else in the world. There are plants and insects so rare that their distribution is measured in feet not miles. The diversity is amazing, but it is also VERY vulnerable. Without active management of feral ungulates like pigs and goats, and invasive plants like guava and ginger the valley would be overrun. The tragedy is not knowing what we have already lost. The triumph is knowing what we still have.
