Flora and Fauna of Maui

Our islands are home to the endemic and the invasive, all of which are fascinating and important to understand.  Here, we’ll share some of our favorites along with the worst. Below, we share everything from the elusive Turtle Town to Maui’s Invasive Species.

Some of our own personal favorite Maui creatures:

  • Humpback WhalesEvery year, from around mid-December to Mid-May, our whales come home to Maui!
  • Hawaiian Sharks – Learn about the parts of a shark, ancient fossils, Hawaii shark attacks, and what kind of sharks in Maui waters you might find.
  • Spinner Dolphins – Living up to their name, if you ever see a Spinner Dolphin pod, you’ll be blown away by the acrobatic display!
