Abstract: Hanalei NWR, Kilauea, Kauai, Hawaii: Although there is no public road access to Hanalei Refuge, visitors can get a good look at the variety of wildlife here from a county road that transects the refuge. A refuge overlook offers a spectacular view, one of the most photographed in Hawaii. From the road or the overlook, you may get a glimpse of some of the endangered species found here, such as this Hawaiian moorhen. Visitors can get a closer look at this and other endangered species (Hawaiian coot, Hawaiian stilt, Hawaiian duck) by renting kayaks and traveling on the Hanalei River.
