The northwestern Hawaiian islands are said to be among the most beautiful in the world. I’ve only been as far as Kauai so far, but while there I was able to see quite a few species of seabirds that call this area home. One of the most impressive birds to see soaring along the coast is the Laysan Albatross otherwise known as the Moli. The majority of the time these birds spend their time out to sea, but from November to July they nest. The flight of a bird for many may seem quite ordinary, but seeing these birds with their 85 inch (2.2 meter) wingspans soar by is quite a sight to see.
To see the environmental risks these majestic birds face see my previous post The Impact of Waste & Plastic.
