Hawaii is a globally important paradise that is dying on our watch. Three-quarters of all birds and plants which have become extinct in the United States have occurred within Hawaii, and one-third of America's threatened and endangered birds and plants now reside within this state. Hawaii is a critically important biological and cultural microcosm of our planet as a whole. Through a combination of personal storytelling and scientific journalism, Dr Robert J. Cabin shows how and why saving this paradise will require embracing the radical yet hopeful new paradigm of ecological restoration. This book relates a series of compelling, firsthand accounts of restoration projects across the Hawaiian Islands that collectively illustrate the scientific, practical, and philosophical challenges involved with performing ecological restoration within and beyond Hawaii. Restoring Paradise concludes with a more general, provocative discussion of the power and limitations of formal science and scientists in ecological restoration.
