The humpback whales that visit Maui every winter are part of a population that was once hunted almost to extinction. Now,due to one of the most successful conservation campaigns in history these magnificent animals are thriving.

View them from shore or a whale watch vessel, for what many describe as a "life changing expxerience."

WHALEWATCH
PROVIDERS
Day tripping on Maui is a way of life. We just grab the cooler and the kids, load up the car and take off on an adventure.

A favorite destination is Hana, "the last Hawaiian place." The "Road To Hana" features waterfalls around every bend. Once in Hana every visitor is immersed in a culture that lavishes Aloha on all.

SPRING -- MISSING IN ACTION?


It's nearly that time again and most of us can't wait. Spring, the season of rebirth and regeneration, is just around the corner. This winter has been a trial for just about every area of the US. Huge storms, one after the other, have bedeviled large areas of the country. Thanks ultimately to climate change we have seen record low temperatures, record high snowfalls, and a new low on the "misery index." One result is that the Earth's transition to spring is off schedule and out of character.

This year, when spring officially arrives next month, we will be tallying records associated with storms, floods and more. One sad number is that we're about to start another new spring with more than 10,000 fewer species populating the Earth than last year. That's right - the best estimate science can provide tells us that every year somewhere around 10,000 species are lost through extinction. They no longer exist. Every year, as has been the case for decades, we continue to destroy plants, animals, fish, birds, fruits and vegetables - the stuff of life. Extinction has struck on every continent, in every country, in virtually every place that we gather. Perhaps most disturbing is the fact that many of the species that are lost each year are unknown - they vanish before we discover them. And of those we have described and studied many interact with other life forms in their habitat in ways we will never know. ...MORE
