Pristine Native Hawaiian Rainforest
Pu'u Kukui Watershed Preserve • Mauna Kahalawai/West Maui • Maui
This is what what pristine native Hawaiian rainforest looks like. 100% native Hawaiian plants. 0% weeds or invasive species in this location in Maui Land & Pineapple Company's PKW Preserve. It's getting harder and harder to find native forest this pristine these days. Just doesn't get much better than this. It's critical to protect our mauka rainforests for future generations. Healthy native rainforests ensure long term water supplies in underground aquifers and reduce the amount of soil sediments washing downstream and smothering our nearshore coral reefs. One has only to look at the sediment covered reefs of Lana'i and Moloka'i to see the devastating effects of the loss of native forest ma uka.

Honohono • Anoectochilus sandvicensis • Hawaiian Jewel Orchid
Pu'u Kukui Watershed Preserve • Mauna Kahalawai • Maui • Hawai'i
One of only three endemic/native Hawaiian orchid species. All relatively diminutive & delicate. Only found in relatively intact native rainforests of the five largest Hawaiian islands. Anoectochilus sandvicensis is considered vulnerable to invasive species, feral pigs and populations have been impacted by herbivory from invasive slugs & snails.

Pu'u Kukui Summit (5,788'asl)
Pristine native Hawaiian rainforest at the top of Mauna Kahalawai/Halemahina/West Maui, Maui, Hawai'i. Here you see endemic pa'iniu on the ground instead of only epiphytically/on tree trunks/branches; which indicates a feral pig-free environment. Feral pigs eat pa'iniu like it's ice cream, so if you only see it growing off the ground, you know that pigs are in the area and eating all the plants they find on the ground.
