The Hawaiian Goose, also known as the Nene, is endemic to the Hawaiian Islands of Maui, Kauai and Hawaii.
The Hawaiian Goose evolved from the Canada Goose which probably arrived on Hawaii shortly after it was formed some 500,000 years ago.
The Hawaiian Goose is the World’s rarest Goose and although its numbers have fell due to hunting and attack from predators, it was bred in captivity by Sir Peter Scott at WWT Slimbridge and reintroduced to Hawaii.
