Hawaii-Alaska Connections

Kolea annual migration

A multitude of connections, both natural and cultural, exist between Hawaii and Alaska. Perhaps being the last two states of the Union and detatched from the continental U.S., both have adopted singular status as unique destinations better defined by their isolated beauty and culture than by their collective association with America.

Whether it is humpback whales migrating between the two states or winter-fleeing Alaskans seeking the warm Hawaiian sun, surf and balmy tradewinds, the connection always existed. Apparently for the kolea bird, this has been the case for at least 120,000 years! For those of you who find these facts as facinating as we do, the following links about the kolea bird (& more) willl certainly deepen your curiosity:
