The ‘alae ‘ula (Gallinula chloropus sandvicensis) is an endangered waterbird found only in Hawai‘i. They were thought to have brought fire from the gods to the people. When the ‘alae ‘ula did so, its forehead was burned red by the volcano’s fire. These birds have historically suffered from habitat loss and are highly vulnerable to predation by cats, rats, mongoose, and other introduced predators. Their current population size is estimated to be approximately 300 individuals. 

10% of proceeds supports Native Hawaiian flora and fauna conservation.
