For natives of Hawaii, Aloha means not only hello and goodbye, but is the guideline to living life with love, peace, and compassion. Hawaii's unique culture, awe-inspiring geographic wonders, favorable climate and infectious charm make the island much more than just a popular vacation destination. It is among the most environmentally diverse places on Earth, consisting of eight main islands with over 10,000 plant and animal species found nowhere else in the world. National Geographic Hawaii explores the pristine beaches, lush rain forests, waterfalls and mountains, capturing the magic of the islands through a collection of stunning photographs. Each outstanding image is accompanied by a spacious grid with moon phases and international holidays. National Geographic supports vital work in conservation, research, exploration, and education.
