Threatened And Endangered Species in Hawaii

"The vast majority of native Hawaiian plants and animals are found nowhere else on Earth. Many, unfortunately, are in grave danger of extinction. While Hawaii represents less than 1 percent of the U.S. total land mass, it has 363 (over 30%) of the 1,104 species federally listed as threatened or endangered." (Excerpt from Atlas of Hawaii, Edited by Sonia P. Juvik and James O. Juvik, University of Hawaii Press, 1998, pg. 150)
