Pauwalu Point Wildlife Sanctuary

Area

Description

Pauwalu Point Wildlife Sanctuary is a popular habitat to the Brown booby, as well as a recently established breeding colony of Red-footed boobies. The boobies nest in the towering trees located on the peninsula. Native Hawaiian seabirds also reside In the Koʻolau Gap, the gulch above the peninsula. It is thought that the gap allows birds to have easy transit between the sea and Haleakalā, where many birds nest. Though no Hawaiian petrel or shearwaters currently have burrows out at Pauwalu Point, social attraction can be used to grow a population.
