Geographic isolation has fostered the evolution of many species of birds and plants entirely unique to the Hawaiian Islands, yet these islands are home to three quarters of all of America's extinctions most of which have been caused by the human introduction of non-native species. This book details the effort to mitigate the destruction wrought by invasive species and to restore natural habits for threatened native species. Even though such a task is daunting, Cabin's tone is hopeful and inspiring, showcasing real and heartening examples of success.
