Hawai’i is the southernmost state in the USA

The Hawaiian Archipelago hosts eight national parks, two renowned World Heritage Sites: Papahānaumokuākea, a Marine National Monument and Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, and an expansive Biosphere Reserve.

Six major islands: Hawai’i, Maui, Lāna’i, Moloka‘i, O’ahu and Kaua’i.

The main Hawaiian Islands consist of eight volcanic islands that range in age from active lava flows on the east side of the Big Island to seven million-year-old Kauai. Coral reefs near urbanized areas, such as Honolulu, Wailuku, and Kahului, have experienced increasing stress from ever-increasing population and other pressures.
