Ka'ena Point Post Stamp Pin
A charm for remembering this beautiful place on O’ahu.
Located on the westernmost tip of O'ahu, this sacred place is believed to be the jumping off point of souls from one realm to another. It is a place protecting a number of Hawaiian flora and fauna including: 'Ilioholoikauaua (Hawaiian Monk Seal) and 'Ua'u kani (Wedge-tailed Shearwater). The sun's powerful rays are felt in contrast with the ocean's spray which leaves behind traces of salt on your skin.
Pictured here are mōlī (Laysan Albatross). These seabirds spend 90% of their lives at sea and in inflight. The oldest mōlī observed in the wild was a 68 year old named Wisdom!
The plant featured on this card is 'Ohai (Sesbania tomentosa) - an endangered species of flowering plant endemic to Hawai'i.
